Publisher's Summary

Teenager Miranda Candle finds a mysterious necklace and is suddenly transported to The Nex, the bizarre city at the center of all possible universes, where she falls in with a pair of would-be revolutionaries - the skinshifter Howlaa and the bodiless Wisp - fighting the oppressive regime of the city-state's Regent and his army of steam colossi, cynical cyborgs, and the depraved royal orphans.

Fun Story, not great telling

What made the experience of listening to The Nex the most enjoyable?

This was a really fun story. Renee Chambliss was great.

What aspect of Renee Chambliss’s performance would you have changed?

Her performance was great. Unfortunately several other voices were added. Only a very few fit the characters they portrayed. The others weren't very good. If it had just been Renee Chambliss it would have been 5 stars all the way. She should have been allowed to do all the voices.

Great story

Loved this story. If I had to compare it to something it would be the Wizard of Oz. It has a little of everything including a happy ending. The voices of characters were all well done and suited their character. If you listen to fantasy or sci-fi podcasts then you will recognize most of these experienced readers. This is a light, quick listen. Would definitely get the next one if they produce one. Good job guys!!
