Summary

My name is Makoto Heart and I've always wished for a chance at freedom. Every day, I prayed before the Starlight gods, asking for their divine assistance in accomplishing such a difficult task.

Being an experiment for as long as I can remember, my hopes of obtaining freedom have diminished, drastically. The disappointment, haunted me, as I and my spirits struggled to survive. I had no hope left, believing my final plea fell upon deaf ears, yet again.

But what happens when my prayers are finally answered? I'm thrust into fulfilling a destiny, with the help of six star knights. Suddenly, I am no longer experiment 555, but the stolen princess of Heila.

Freedom, how you have teased my troubled soul. May the Starlight gods guide me and my knights, on this path towards the unknown.

Amazing story, shame about the female narrator

I have read this series and completely loved it. So i automatically thought i would love the audio book...... i was so wrong. By chapter 6 i was wishing i didnt start.... the female narrator sounds like a robot.... im so disappointed that i dont think i will even buy book 2 in the audiobook and will just down load the book again and do it old school and read. PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE SAMPLE BEFORE U BUY TO SEE IF U CAN LISTEN TO THE NARRATOR

Keeps your attention for sure!

Not only do I absolutely love the story and this author, but the narration was fantastic as well. I love how it switches between male and female voice when the book changes POV.

Sucks you in

The story is one that pulls you in. There was a few times where I thought the F MC just kept getting things thrown at her but the author did a really good job with actually making you more sympathetic/empathetic towards Mako. The author did a really good job at world building as well as character building without it being tedious and uninteresting. I think the narrators did a good job with their parts and I think it’s really awesome the narrators made different voices for the different spirits. Even the male narrator did a good job with the male spirits, yea they are deeper and older sounding but you have to remember the spirits are actually much older than their hosts and the gods place them in different hosts. Anyway well worth the credit and I already bought the second one!

interesting

This was an interesting story that kept my attention the whole time. I loved Mako and her spirits. She was a fun character that had real depth. The female narrator was good, but the male narrator sounded older than the characters he was portraying.
