Summary

Nowhere is safe when the gods are wicked.

Since the beginning of times, there has always been two sides: Norms and Idols. But never have the scales been so unbalanced as they are today.

I'm a Norm, which means I grew up in fear of the Idols and their godly powers. And now, I'm going to be surrounded by them, day and night. I've been offered a place at the prestigious Gifted Academy, an opportunity very few Norms get.

To survive, I must become invisible. But my hope to get through the academy unscathed goes down the drain when the most powerful boys in school set their eyes on me.

They hate me simply because I'm a Norm. If they knew who I truly am, they'd tear me apart limb by limb. But I'm done cowering away from Idols. It's time for the Norms to fight back, and it all starts with me.

Contains mature themes.

Terrible

I don't think this author understands how to write an ending. You have to wrap up at least this books open ended plot lines before writing in a suspenseful cliffhanger that sojourns into the continuation of the story in the next book. This just felt like I was cheated out of a story I paid for. Besides that, the dialogue was simple and boring. The story has a decent premise that will keep you interested enough to keep going. But there's really not very much angst happening between the main characters...you kinda just end up hating them all.
Their pull to each other doesn't make sense. As far as the narration goes...both actors had lackluster performances that didn't carry the right inflection. I also found the man's accent to be very "valley" and borderline obnoxious. There was no distinguishing between any of the Male leads in tone so you get confused about who is even speaking. Not moving forward in the series.

Male narrator ruined this for me :(

I tried sooooo hard to finish this series but the male narrator just ruined it for me. the female was good. He sounded like a pothead the entire time and I couldn't tell when he switched between male leads at all. I am sure that is challenging but when they have a conversation in the book I had no idea who was talking. The story was pretty good but even when I tried to switch to kindle I heard the voice in my head and it kind of ruined it for me. I hate leaving anything but amazing reviews but felt it should be shared. If you are considering this book, just read it.

Worst male narrator on Audible

Please look up the video, "BurgerKing Foot Lettuce" and you will understand how absolutely awful this narrator is. I'm hoping he doesn't get paid for such a god awful preformance.

Male narrator completely f$&@‘d. this up!!

I wanted to like this book. I really tried but the male narrator butchered this and I could not finish this. In the beginning of the story I thought it had potential but it quickly turned into a a horribly narrated harem/bullying type of book and not a very good one.

male narrator... eh

The female narrator was fantastic, the male narrator was awful. He made each male character sound whiny and idiotic. I'm really hoping he's better in the second book, because I really want to continue this series, however it took a lot of patience getting through the book when one of the guys point of views came on. I may have to just switch to reading this series instead of listening.

Great story, but is it worth it?

the story line is good so far, but the Male voice makes me want to dig out my ear drums! Madeline Dauer did a really good job distinguishing characters. All-n-all, had his voice been in the preview, I'd never had bought it. Listen at ur own risk!

OMG!

The story line is really good, The female narrator is okay but the male narrator, well if present I would wanna shake him and tell him STOP talking stupid. This is suppose to be a school of really smart kids and he narrates like the dumb bird in bugs bunny cartoons, Tadum Tadum, tadum....duhhhhh. I could listen anymore past chapter 5.

That male narrator...ummm

I couldn’t finish listening to it. I had to read it when I got the chance. The male narrator was not good at all. The fact it is the same narrator across all books I just gave up and read it on my own. If he would just read it with his own voice instead of trying to act out the character as a bored surfer?? Maybe it would have been tolerable. I should have read the reviews before purchase.

Do not read, trust me.

There is sexual abuse scenes depicted in this book.
A father with a son, absolutely disgusting! they try to play it off as not real because it's a created image in the brain sent to the father, who demands the scene. (magic; both can experience the scene as if it's real),
JUST WRONG!!! just because you can write things like that doesn't mean you should.

The male narrator is absolutely horrible. it's worse than a "stoner dude" voice. nails on a chalk board.

if I could give this book zero stars I would.
