Summary

I don't look for trouble. It finds me: murderous teachers, sexy supernaturals, devious plots.

My name is Dawn Rose. I was the food-scavenger for my group of outcasts in the Fringe - what used to be LA County before the Abnorms and supernaturals turned it into a hellscape. But I never expected to witness a brutal murder-by-magic.

Now I've been whisked off to Briarwitch Academy, the place where magic goes to grow. The faculty think I have an ancient untapped power. Yeah, right. Like I'm going to fit in with drunken gnomes and goth pixies. And then there are the smoldering shifter-dudes. One of them basically stalks me. The other hates me. I want them both.

I'm just trying to survive the bullies and my classes and the magical weirdos who don't think I belong here. But when evil threatens the academy, I have to stop it from reaching back home. And that whole murder thing? I know who did it. And he knows I know. And life's about to get way more complicated....

Horrible

I cannot stand to listen to a narration that sounds like the narrator is on the verge of sobbing any second. Maybe this is a good book but I will have to read it instead of listening to it.

the teen angst and readers voice are way too high

I tried for 8 chapters but just couldn't get past the shallow character and plot development.I suggest anyone buying this both listens to the sample at least twice and decide if they can listen to 8 hours of that. The reader's voice was soprano the whole time. It made my ears bleed half the time she's definitely going on my blacklist.

excellent

the only thing that can make this book better is if they had dual narration a male narrator for the male voices and a female narrator for female voices instead of the same narrator for everybody (personal preference)but other then that AMAZING and the narrator does an excellent job of pulling and immersing the reader in
