AWARDS 2021: Finalist in the Independent Audiobook Awards: Young Adult Category for Ava the Brave by Jules Adrienn REVIEWS FROM AUDIBLE YA SCIENCE FICTION Sound of Silence by Ali Winters "I think the audio narration of this book helped to enhance it. Don't get me wrong, when I read the book I thought it was good, but I couldn't understand or visualize some of the emotions the characters had until I listened to the audiobook. In essence, the narration of Silence made a good book a great book. I was finally able to grasp how dire Jace and Ray's situation was and I could see that they were possibly on the verge of a great love story. The narration was done so well that I'm excited about the second book. I really need to know what comes next for Jace and Ray. I'm wondering how their relationship will progress, how they will survive in a situation that seems bleak and why they didn't succumb to the... oh well, I can't say what they didn't succumb to because I might be giving too much of the story away." Anonymous Audible UK Listener "Shaina Summerville does a great job with the narration. Her voice and speed are perfect. I hope she will narrate future books in the series! " Karl Hill, Audible Listener "Wow - what a pleasantly surprising read! So amazed and awed by this book. Lovely reading this book from beginning to end - did not want to stop reading it.

This a great paranormal, new adult, and urban fantasy romance. I love Odessa Black's writing. I love the characters, and the scenery. My favorites are Cole and Allie. The storyline is complex, intriguing, fast-paced, and filled with mystery, and suspense. Now, I can't wait for the next book in the Series! The narration is great! Shaina Summerville has a great, soft, and beautiful voice, that fits the characters and the story. All the character were easy to distinguish.
