If you enjoy epic battles between good and evil you will love this one! I will say that it had great characters and a nice twist to set it apart from the usual. I enjoyed listening to this book.

I've read a few of this author's other books and this is definitely different to his other works but just as good.
Scarlet Thomas and her dad move to Redlake for his work and because it's a new one, her dad is working all hours. Scarlet has no friends yet but has a job in a book store, which she enjoys. While walking home one evening by the lake, she comes across a naked man who seems to have lost his memory. For some reason she takes him home but he disappears when her dad comes home. Next day she is again walking near the lake when a stranger approaches, he calls her the spark and says she needs to be destroyed. His touch burns her but the man from the night before suddenly appears and saves her. She runs to the book shop and what is revealed will change her life forever.
This was such a unique book and one I devoured. I pretty much everything about it. Characters: Loved Scarlet, she is a strong girl but also just looking to be safe and loved. Sorrow, it's the name Scarlet gives him because he can't remember his own. He is there to keep Scarlet safe and takes his job seriously! He is a mysterious enigmatic character and I need to know more!! Then we have the "bad" guy. Gosh this dude is like the terminator cause he kept coming back and was nearly invincible! So cool!! ;) All of these were well written and developed and easily likable.
In all, this was an action packed, unique and gripping book. I am totally invested in these characters and need to know more, I need to see what happens Scarlet and Sorrow and just what is up with her mother?? In other words, I need book 2 now!!!!
Nigel Patterson, what can I say!! He has such an easy voice to listen to and made for an amazing Sorrow!! He even had a good female voice. He really brought this story to life and I hope he narrates the next.
*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

The story was fun - interesting, however the prose and the dialogue are both appalling. I'm in shock that this past the hands of an editor...
...I found the narrator had only one voice. As in, all the characters sounded the same. But, in saying that it was still enjoyable.
