I really enjoyed the majority of this book. I thought it was clever despite dealing with a theme that's been written about by so many others. There were quite a few characters that I instantly like, the main protagonist being one of them. Whew!
Both narrators were very good, but Laura Aikman was definitely my favourite. I'm very picky with narrators, but I think I might have found my new favourite one. She's really very good at both dialects and delivering emotion and action.
The story started off really good, but for me it sort of sagged a bit in the middle. Also, the hearty eyed, teenage love at first sight isn't quite my cup of tea. Personally I could have done without much of the oogling and longing. I also found the main protagonist's doubts in the mid part and onwards a bit...it felt a little bit put in there for the sake of being there.
There isn't a great diversity in this book. So if that's something important to you then this book might not be for you.
But those were the only few things that I noticed. Other than that it was a good, solid, and entertaining listen.

A different Armageddon
I really enjoyed this book - so much that as soon as I finished it I searched to see if the next one was available and it was and I bought it and listened to it straight away and have pre-ordered the next one.
I found the story captivating, I wanted to know what was going to happen and I found myself caught up in the events as the characters were so believable.
I enjoy books that alternate characters telling of the story as this one does as to me it gives more insight to both the plot and the character.
The only downside I did find was the ending, a cliff-hanger - I admit if I had known I might not have ever read it not without having the other books in the series first ( something I often do if I read a review of a book that states this and I check and find if at least next book is out before buying it, I would rather wait than wonder but that is just me).
The narrators were perfect choices for this book - they brought all the characters alive so well, they gave the book the atmosphere it needed and really nothing else I can add except just perfect.
I did receive this book free in the hope I would write a review for it and am so glad I did as I had not come across the author before and now they have a new fan as I will be buying all their books from now on.
