Publisher's Summary

From Richelle Mead, the number-one internationally best-selling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink, and many go hungry. Fei's home, the people she loves, and her entire existence are plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
Richelle Mead takes listeners on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei's jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiguo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever....

Misleading description of the book

This was a fantasy book with only about 5% of it being fantasy. I also didn't like the description of the book describing "sound becomes her weapon". Sound was not her weapon it's as much a weapon as the dragon radar in Dragon Ball was a weapon. All she did was hear the rocks falling and footsteps.

The book was okay but I felt this book was very misleading and the ending just kinda comes out of left field with not much build up or hints throughout the story.

Very disappointed

I normally don't write reviews but I was so surprised by how much I disliked this book I felt I should share my opinion. From the very beginning I was simply not captivated by her writing like I have been in the past. After maybe 2 and a half chapters I realized I had no idea what I was listening to and had to re-start the book. This book took me significantly longer to finish than I would have expected due to the fact that I kept falling asleep listening to it. Now you might think, "oh is it the narration?" and I don't think that was the problem. There was simply a very weak plot-line unlike Richelle Mead's usual writing style.
If your expectations going in are for well developed characters with charisma and charm with an interesting story line to support them then you will probably not like this book. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy it more that I did!
