Description

Her beginning may be our end....

Deep in the humid Mississippi bayou, a half-wild child is dragged from the murky waters. She has no memories and no family and is covered in mysterious markings. Adopted by the policeman who rescued her, Luce Boudreau follows him onto the force, determined to prove herself in the eyes of those who are still suspicious.

However, there's more of a battle ahead than Luce could possibly imagine. She may be an orphan without a past, but no one - including Luce herself - could ever be prepared for the truth of her dark, powerful destiny....

"The world building is fresh...The characters are well-drawn and easy to root for. And the romance really hits the spot." (Red Hot Books)

Worst Narrator Ever

In over 10 years on Audible and listening to hundreds of audiobooks, this is the worst narration I've ever heard. The story was decent enough - unique, funny, but the narration made it unbearable to listen to. I read other reviews about the narration, but I listened to the sample and didn't think it was that bad. Well, it got worse, much worse. The characters sounded like cartoons, and the screeching voices has me constantly turning my volume up and down. I'll read the next book, but won't purchase the audio.

Stunning and Unique

The storyline was captivating and the plot was unique. I loved it. The only detractor was the accents and voice of the Audible performer. They weren't genuine or well done, but instead an overexaggerated and disingenuous dialect that grated on my nerves quite frequently.

Screech!

The narrator screeched her way thru every male voice she tried to use. Her vocals literally hurt my ears, she seems to think she has to increase her volume while she screeches like a rusty hinge attempting to sound like a southern male. I finally had to give it up and read rather than listen. I enjoy Hailey Edwards's work, but will not listen to another book narrated by Laurence Bouvard. If the sample had highlighted her attempting a male persona I never would have purchased the book.

Terrible narration!

The narrator is awful, male and female voices! Have me a headache trying to listen. I have up about the fourth. Sux! Going to return it if possible.

Good 1st Installment

The narrator did a decent job, I was good with her female voices but wasn't the biggest fan of her male voices. This was an enjoyable 1st book in a series and I'm looking forward to the next book to see what will happen. You need to read in order as this storyline has a continuation arc.

#TeamLuce awaits!

I’m not new to Hailey Edwards books but this was a series I held off on. I wasn’t sure how I’d like it. I was surprised though. She opened up a whole new world that has you guessing from page to page to see what’s happening, what’s coming and who is doing it.

This book is a little slow going on the beginning but with that said, the scene was set well. There is a helluva lot of layers to this one. So many people, creatures and chaos that it’s an on going train ride across crazy town.

Luce finds herself in the middle of the tracks, a train full of bad people barreling for her and she only has two choices. Fight or be killed. It’s a right line at its best. I’m the end, she manages to come out with only a few new battle wounds. But, her life will never be the same. There is a new threat looming on the horizon waiting for her to make a mistake.

Great story

The narrator needs some work with male voices but it’s not enough of a distraction to give up on a really good story.

Is this narrator serious?

She did good.... until you get to the men narration. They all sound like 40 year old smokers trying to play a smoker. What the hell. Why why why I wanted to listen to it but how you supposed to picture a sexy man with a voice like that.

hate it

I hate saying I do not care for someone's work. I know authors put a whole lot into their stories. But honestly this is not my cup of tea. The narrator did a great job. The story line just wasn't up to par for me. I just expected more.

Hated it

Sadly gotta say that I started to hate it about midway through. :( I decided to quit listening in chapter 19. It focusses less on the fantasy setting and more on the romance.
No spoiler review of why I did not like it: The speaker reads everything in a very thick southern accent, which sounds so over-the-top, it's annoyingly melodramatic. While the worldbuilding is superb and interesting (gotta admit that), the characters are shallow and typical. Luce, the heroine, couldn't be more annoying to me - trying to be a 'strong woman' but acting like an idiot 3/4 of the time. Unneccessary love story crammed into the story, with no sparks or feelings. The plot is fragmentary every here and there, lots of everyday-life-slices in between. Lots of potential imo, but sadly did not do it for me. Shallow romantasy with a clueless but trying-to-be-strong heroine, if you want a cute lovestory and little actual plot, this one might be for you.
