A Fair Start To A YA Series.

Sterling Wayfairer, a Noban, is a high school senior on Geo, an Earth-like world. Sterling, who is about to come into strange powers. Tetra is a girl from Noban, who travels through time and space to make contact with Sterling, the boy she is somehow bonded to. Enter the Naga, a strange and powerful creature who is hell bent on killing Sterling and you have the beginning of the Wayfairer series. I found this YA novel a bit slow in pace, but it did keep my attention. With that said, I don’t know that I would pick up the next book in the series.

Interesting Fantasy Story

I liked this story, but I'm still not really sure I know what was going on most of the time. I got the gist of it. Girl from another world "binds" with a boy to save the world from a creature who takes the form of other people as well as a huge snake. But beyond that, I didn't understand the binding or how Sterling got picked to join with Tetra, how she found him initially, etc. There was very little information about their past encounters or anything about Tetra's background. There was so much missing from the story for me that was never developed by the time the book ended.

That said, I enjoyed the interaction of the students at the school. Some of what happened was downright hilarious. However, there wasn't enough personal information about Tetra to really make me care about her, and I never understood how she seemed invisible to everyone but Sterling for the first part of the book. Did she somehow erase ALL those people's memories continuously? Things like that didn't make sense, but if you suspend your need to understand and know what is going on, it's a pleasant enough diversion from reality.

The narration was good, and the variety of vocal inflection and tone made it easy to distinguish the different characters. The only drawback was that it sounded like a cassette tape running, with hissing and popping/static-type sounds, in the background. It wasn't severe, but it was noticeable.

I would recommend this as a good audiobook for the YA crowd.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
