Publisher's Summary

Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn't follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life - worth less than the shadow she casts.
Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.

Screwed up audio

The audio began skipping and repeating and becoming unintelligible when there was an hour and 43 min left.

Enjoyed the story

I loved the story line however at the end of the book it started skipping so I missed the last part. I had to skip two whole chapters because a glitch kept either repeating the same work for a few minutes or skipping words all together.

Flawed on every level

I've been listening to audio books for at least 10 years and this has to be the worst I have encountered in terms of plot, delivery and even technical production.

The author has sacrificed plot for commentary on dresses, hair, makeup and kissing even the very rare appearance of magic is dominated by its pretty colours. The feeble plot might be acceptable if this were a character study but unfortunately the characters are thinly sketched at best. The author even fails to create a credible universe for her characters to inhabit and what little their is spoilt by drifting into modern idiom, names and objects.

The narrator has a pleasant enough voice but struggles to distinguish characters clearly, making some conversations confusing. Sentences are often misread or misattributed and she seems to have no grasp of the characters or how given the situation, they might deliver their lines.

To cap it all the production is appalling. A background hiss permeates the book except between chapters when the sudden, glorious silence reminds you of what you are enduring. Volume levels are inconsistent and part way through the book data corruption causes it to loop, stutter and skip.

For me that was the final straw and I gave up. The only positive thing I can say is that the marketing people must have done a good job because their is no other excuse for me having bought this book.

loved it

I really enjoyed listening. Rachel was great at keeping me entertained with changing her voice to help you tell it's someone else talking during conversations
