What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If i could rate this book a zero i would. Terrible predictive storyline with a self involved main character and a narrater who can't really differentiate the voices, i'm annoyed i spent my money on this
I LOVED this book, LOVED it. I rant on about the powerless, obsessive female leads in YA literature these days, the Bella’s of the world who are destined to be with a boy, who would do anything at 16 to stay with the love of their life, they have no say, no opinions or options on rejecting this love, its just there. I hate those types of leads, it sends such a bad message to young girls, not only do you have to commit yourself to your soulmate at 16, but it should be passionate, all consuming love, a pull you can’t resist, and shouldn’t resist. No no no. at 16 you should be having fun filled, light relationships, have sex if you must, but don’t think it means you’ll be together forever, and don’t think that you SHOULD be together forever, just because your in love at this moment in time. Things change, people change, there is, in the real world, no such thing as unbreakable bonds and destiny - and if there is, I doubt it’ll hit at 16 for everyone. Anyway, thats why I love this book, Clara is drawn to Christian, she is probably destined to be with him, surely thats what her purpose is, to bond with him. But Clara has a choice, she makes a choice that is unexpected and brilliant, she is also aware that she’s young and that things change, but the best bit about this book is that she is given a choice.
The story is unusual, and the angels are well written, they are not above us, or better than us, Clara is a normal girl and wants to be seen as such, the angel is a part of her, but not all of her. There are obviously secrets and twists to come in the latter books, Clara’s mothers purpose is still unknown, but must be linked and her brother is up to something. But the magic of this book is in the relationships, Wendy and Angela (who I don’t trust btw) as well as Clara’s family who seem so perfect but there is trouble brewing.

So I don't agree with previous reviews Clara is needy to be fair nowhere near as needy as that dreadful Bella. But she still spends a lot of time chasing after guys for her purpose. That said its really well written with a strong female lead who does not need a guy to complete her tasks she goes out and gets the job done. With her mother's help she survives no guys needed. Love that secret angels keep popping up the story just keeps on giving. Only got the book two days ago finished it and have gone straight back to the beginning as its that fab.
If you have ever likes any thing by Aprilynn Pike or Richell Mead you will love this new series. Take a chance Audible do offer refunds after all.

There isn't much more to say other than I loved it. I haven't fallen in love with a group of characters like this in a long time. The narration was so great Eloise Oxer read this story with the perfect amount of emotion and really made the characters come alive. I'm very excited to listen to the next book, 10/10 would recommend.
Loved it. Was an amazing book. Did not want to end and did not want to stop listening.
