Imagine you wake up and the world around you-life as you know it-has changed in an instant. That's what has happened to Whit Allgood and his sister, Whisty. They went to sleep as normal teenagers, and woke up as wanted criminals. Accused of holding incredible powers they'd never dreamed possible. And now, just how different they are-special, even-if just beginning to be revealed in a strange new world.


My Thoughts:

This has been on my TBR pile for a long time now and this past weekend, the perfect opportunity presented itself to listen to it. I have to say I loved this book and part of the reason was the narrators for it. Elijah Wood and Spencer Locke were amazing! Audio books with multi readers are some of my favorites to listen to.

The story is a bit far fetched but that's okay that's what fantasy and imagination is all about. A typical good vs evil type scenario is the theme of the book. You have this new order taking over and making things the way they deem appropriate. Putting anyone they want to death and or in prison if they are kids until they are of an age where they can be put to death. It's crazy world that sort of reminds me of the move Pleasantville after the new order takes over. Everyone and everything is perfect and in it's place. Kind of creepy heh.

All in all I enjoyed this audio book and have put the second one on hold at my local library to listen too. Thankfully book 2 has the same cast of readers which already is a plus in my book.

I love listening to multi-voiced audiobooks too. I can imagine Elijah Wood's pretty spectacular.

Have you ever listened to The Lord of the Rings or William Shakespeare's plays narrated by several actors? Phenomenal stuff. :)

I've heard people talk about this series and really enjoy it. Thanks for the great review here. I've had a few friend tell me about it too, but I don't know why I've never really picked it up. :) Thanks!
