    Description

    A captivating world of monsters and magic from the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Paper Magician Series.

    As a human vessel for an ancient spirit, Sandis lives no ordinary life. At the command of her master, she can be transformed against her will into his weapon - a raging monster summoned to do his bidding. Unlike other vessels, Sandis can host extremely powerful spirits, but hosting such creatures can be fatal. To stay alive, she must run. And in a city fueled by smoke and corruption, she finds a surprising ally.

    A cunning thief for hire, Rone owns a rare device that grants him immortality for one minute every day - a unique advantage that will come in handy in Sandis’s fight for freedom. But Sandis’s master knows how powerful she is. He’s determined to get her back, and he has the manpower to find her, wherever she runs.

    Now, to outwit her pursuers, Sandis must put all her trust in Rone and his immortal device. For her master has summoned more than mere men to hunt her down....

    Fun story with likeable characters.

    Really enjoyed the narrators. I tend to prefer male voices, however I found that I loved Lauren Ezzo's tone and voice more than her male counterpart. So much so, that I felt she was the character. I also felt the story premise was intriguing even if the story ended as expected. The main characters were really loveable. The one thing that did annoy me was that I felt the villians felt too competent. Every single time the main characters moved around the city (they move a lot), the villians were right there. It seems unbelievable that they we're always discovered so quickly, and that the villians were that efficient with being on top of their every move in a massive city.

    This performance/story is so addicting!

    I loved the narrators and the way they switched between her story and his story. Like a good book I didn't want to put my phone down to listen. I loved the whole experience!

    Fantastic

    loved this book. the two narrators were great and it was easy to follow. a much darker world (in my opinion) than that of the paper magician. i may end up liking this series even better then paper magician. strongly recommended title

    Didn't like the story line, performance is so-so.

    While I did like the premise, it was executed poorly. The writing itself was pretty good, but as the story progresses the plot twists are more and more convenient. Ultimately, I didn't like turkey of the main characters very well. As far as the performance, I wasn't impressed with the range on the voices, it was read well, but didn't sound believable.

    Didn't Find the Ending as Offensive as some

    I expected some awful cliff-hanger that would leave everything up-ended and terribly frustrating after I read the reviews for this book, but I hate to say it - I didn't have that reaction to it. I'm a Holmberg fan and have read almost all of her other books. She totally lost me on Veins of Gold and it was one of the few books I have ever just not finished because I didn't care about what happened. So, all that being said, my expectations were super low. But I thought this is a great story. The characters, setting and plot are all such great fantasy and she brings it to life in a way that really lets me feel like a fly on the wall. I did feel like some strings get left untied but I also thought I got some resolution on certain things, with an understanding that there was more to come. Overall, I liked the characters, story, and narration from Audible (the performer did a great job)! If you like Holmberg's other books, give it a try. It's not as good as Paper Magician but definitely still a winner in my book.

    Alright story, LOVE the narrators

    Something about the pacing and POV switching felt off halance to me, but what do I know? The narrator s, especially the woman, sold it for me. I will actively seek out her performances.

    Best Charlie Holmberg book so far!

    This was the most engaging CH book to date! I can't believe it's over already and I'm aching for the next. The characters reactions to struggles were authentic and raw.

    Charlie N Holmberg Does It Again

    This woman is publishing gold. She hooked me with the paper magician series. Then the two quick fairytalesque adventures with ice magic and food magic really drew me in. My only complaint so far has been that the stories aren't long enough. She certainly solved that problem here. Can't WAIT to read the rest of the series!

    Better than Paper Magician!

    Wow! What a great story and the MCs are amazing! Reminds me of The Talisman in regards to the dangers, friendships and twists of 2 hunted and haunted people on a perilous quest. Well read and hopefully she will write many more in this series!
