Publisher's Summary

After two years and seven months biding her time on Anima, her home ark, it is finally time to act, to put what she has discovered in the Book of Faruk to use. Under an assumed identity, Ophelia travels to Babel, a cosmopolitan and thoroughly modern ark that is the jewel of the universe. Will her talent as a reader suffice to avoid being lured into a deadly trap by her ever more fearful adversaries? Will she ever see Thorn, her betrothed, again?

Love this series!

Dabos' third book, and it just keeps getting better and better! Excellent narration which really gives character to each person.

Delightful

I love how this series is a blend of mystery, fantasy, and awkward love story. I only regret that I have to wait for more. Truly an enjoyable listening experience.

Weak link in the series

The first two books in this series are wonderful: a unique premise, fast-paced, many and diverse characters, multiple story lines, humor, affection, and unexpected turns. This third volume does not live up to its predecessors. There are almost no characters other than Ophelia. The story is slow and not particularly engaging. It's missing color and and verve, humor, and true affection between characters. Ophelia does find Thorn, but they are unable to connect emotionally. I still believe Thorn is either autistic or has Asperger's Syndrome. The search for God is necessary to the story arc but has become boring. Will I buy the next volume? Yes, based on the merits of the first two books. Will I buy a fifth volume? We'll see. It's time to wrap up this series.

Story is great, but I'm hating the narrator

still haven't finished the book, but I will very soon. the story is great, I read the first two books in two weeks and decided to try the audiobook for the third to listen while sewing. I have to say I'm hating the accents done by the narrator. as an italian, I feel very annoyed every time Mediana speaks. the accent feels very unnecessary, too strong, almost like a caricature.

it is very off putting and it's a shame, it's ruining a great book for me.

Love this book, can't wait for the fourth!

The story line of the series is interesting, new, one might say quirky. Love the mix of mystery, fantasy, romance and humor. This book is not as good as the first too, it's slower and the love story feels unrealistic, forced even. Usually there is lots of quirky characters and a bit of humor, almosr like caricatures, however this books lacks this, as it focuses on the main character Ophelia. The narrator is the best part of the experience, she is a delight to listen to and truly makes the characters feel alive, discerning different accents and voices, I love her work on these books.

Fantastic

Have loved this book. Ophelia and Thorns adventure gets you pulled into the story making you feel as you are part of it. Have loved all 3 books and can't wait for the 4th.
