For me the books started off interesting but soon after the author kept changing back from the past to the here and now it got a little confusing, and she lost me. There were a few things that throw me that I wondered why someone didn’t ask about them, there are a few things I how did that happen don't get me wrong some of it I really enjoyed and liked.
I thought the narrator did a wonderful job from her characters to the emotions she gave them. She paused when she needed to and laughed when you expect, showed sorrow through the voices as well as the excitement. I didn’t hear any volume changes if any breaks were taken I could not tell. There are no background noises just a very clean and clear audio. Her male voices are just as good as her females, you always know who is talking and what they are feeling. I thought she did a really great job and it wasn’t her fault that I could not get into this audio. I thought her character voices were nice males sounded manly and females were great.
Please do not take my word for this, we can’t all enjoy the same things, there are a lot of great reviews on this book. Take a chance give it a listen and you decide for yourself whether you like it or not. For me the author lost me early on and just could not get my attention back.
SummaryIn the Age of Wizards, Time is a commodity more valuable than gold.
When Aoife (EE-fa) stumbles upon an antique trunk in the attic, it calls to her with an ancient magic. Inside she finds a stairway leading into darkness and cannot resist stepping onto that first stair. It leads her to dark truths her mother never wanted her to uncover and love so powerful she walks through time to save it.
Her magic is dormant.
When Aoife Burke rushes home after the unexpected death of her father, she discovers her mother has vanished amid inexplicable circumstances. She returns to her childhood home to search for clues of her mother's whereabouts, but another shock awaits her. Sean O'Connell, the object of her girlhood crush, has purchased the family home. She senses Sean is hiding something from her; he refuses to let her inside and does everything he can to keep her out. A determined Aoife breaks inside and stumbles upon an antique trunk in the attic. When she opens it, instead of the normal musty clothes and ancient letters, she finds a stairway leading into darkness. It calls to her, and she cannot resist stepping into the trunk and onto that first stair, which leads her to magical truths her mother never wanted her to discover.
His magic is dangerous.
Sean O'Connell has been assigned by the Inter-dimensional Portal Protection Agency to keep Aoife and her mother out of Faery. But when she breaks into the house and disappears through the portal in the trunk - like her mother - he has no choice but to follow her, even though stepping into Faery will force him to face his past. Keeping her safe and out of the hands of the Wizard King also becomes a fight to save Aoife's life from her own mother, who has discovered a time portal in Faery leading her back in time to alter her past mistakes, putting Aoife's life in peril. Sean is willing to do anything to make sure she's safe. Even if it means he has to tap in to his dangerous magic to do it.
