Story 2 stars; 3 stars overall - an extra star because narrator brought more life to the writing
It’s okay. But the characters weren’t really likable, overall. As siblings, their relationship worked. Everything else were puzzle pieces struggling to fit together.
The ‘big reveal prophecy’ to the twins 30 minutes til the end is too cliche and typical.
The writing is simplistic and unimaginative. The world building is nearly vanilla and didn’t evoke any wonderment.
Elizabeth Phillips is a narrator I recently came across and liked. Searching her works, I stumbled upon this. And with a main character sharing the same name as my granddaughter, I had hoped to share the story with her one day.
I’m really confused how this book is 300 pages/ 4h 50min and book 2 is 167 pages and 4h 40mins. But it’s a different narrator on book 2 and one I usually avoid because she sounds like she’s sleeptalking. So no foul. Seems like it’s just not meant to be.
Audiobook is being returned and the series - acutally, serial because it’s like incomplete - will be forgotten.
I give this about 2.5 stars. Seemed like it has a good idea and would be interesting but it’s very very slow at the beginning a very slow start. Way too many dialogue tags happens at everything they say and a bit too much telling. The narrator however did a very good job with what she had.
