Publisher's Summary

A thirst for revenge.

Ava is committed to vengeance against the man responsible for the death of her parents. The same man, the queen's herald, kept her prisoner for two years, until she escaped with Luc, a warlord bent on vengeance just as fierce as her own. He's forged a powerful army of people from all through the region, called the Rising Wave, to march on the Kassian royal family and smash its corrupt power under the weight of their anger. But for Luc, just as for Ava, his true motive is a lot more personal.

A hidden magic.

Luc suspects Ava has magical abilities, and suspects he's benefited greatly from them, but he's no stranger to the burdens of power. He's prepared to let her tell him in her own time; after all, she's his heart's choice, and he will give her all the time she needs. Except time is running out for both of them. As they near the Kassian stronghold, forces from within their own camp and without will use every trick they have to stop both Luc and Ava and tear them apart.

A secret laid bare.

Luc knows Ava has a secret she's keeping from him - but what he doesn't realize is that she has many. And when those secrets are exposed, everyone will have to grapple with the consequences. Ava is prepared to sacrifice her happiness and even her life to save the Rising Wave and Luc - but she would prefer to use her heart and her head to outwit her enemies instead.

Includes prequel novella The Rising Wave.

Just buy the book

I was pretty excited when I heard this book was going to be put out on audio. I love Michelle Diener's books, and Christina Delaine did a wonderful job narrating Ms. Diener's Class 5 series, so i had hopes that this book would be treated well also. Nope. Neither narrator has the right sound for this book, and the female narrator is so choppy and robotic, I checked to make sure I wasn't listening to a text-to-speech program. Seriously, who green-lights these narrators?
In short, the book is really good, so save your money or credit, and just buy that.

Couldn’t listen beyond the first chapter

The female narrator was very difficult to listen to. Her intonation and style were not for me at all to the point where I stopped listening and returned the book. A shame since I had been waiting for this book to be released on audible. Time to go buy to book and read it myself I think

Great Story, Bad Narrator

I love this book, I'd read it twice as an ebook and was thrilled to learn it was to come out in audio. What a disappointment, though! Stephanie Wyles is abysmal. A previous review comparing her to a text to speech app are right on. I'm so sad about this, a great narrator can make a book fabulous, an average narrator at least doesn't detract. (And I'd put Tim Paige in the average category) But poor narrators can ruin a great book. Listening to this audiobook is painful.

I loved this story

This story keeps you on the edge. You always know the good guys are going to win your not quit sure. I love the sex scene they are there and you get the point, but it not to overt. I didn’t like the narrator to much her voice was always the sam flat no inflection. But all in all I liked the story. Thank you.

Liked the story

Female narrator was flat and tone was grating. Male narrator was fine. Like the story and characters. Put up with narration to finish story

wonderful

This story was wonderful. I enjoyed the plot and characters whole heartedly and when I realized it was coming to an end I immediately started hoping for a book 2. The only negative I can state about this novel was the female narrator. I'm very sorry to say that her voice and pacing were grating and jarring. The female narrator's voice often pulled me from the book and back to reality because she paused in odd places or sounded out a word strangely but in comparison the male narrator was superb so balance of sort was restored. My final thought on this book series is I will definitely be on the look out for the next book but perhaps just the written word alone.
