Quick Thoughts: I am so glad that I listened to Sideswiped before The Drafter or I don’t think I would have enjoyed this one as much as I did. I was already invested in these characters (especially Silas and Peri–as individuals not a couple). The action was top notch. The twists really twisty (so maybe there was one too many in the middle but alas the end saved it for me). The world totally fascinating. However, it was the characters that made me love this book and start the countdown to book 2.

Audio Thoughts:

Not gonna lie–January is quickly becoming part of my 10 top narrators in the business. She just nailed The Drafter –the pacing, emotions, characters. Just really enjoyed this!

  1. This one really looks interesting, and I’m glad you said that about reading the other first. I’ve read books like that and know that if I hadn’t read the book before it that I would have probably not liked it as much. It’s all about that connection that lingers, I think.

  2. I started this one back in August and I was having a hard time engaging. I am planning on reading it over the break when I have to time to digest it.
