I just have to say I really appreciate Powell reaching out to me directly to review this audiobook, and I have to say that she did such an amazing job with this narration! I think she really captured the voice of Tabitha Sparks perfectly and I just felt like she is a really great audiobook narrator. I look forward to listening to more of her work, and I really hope that she continues to narrate the rest of this trilogy.
I also am so glad that I got to enjoy the world of Tabitha Sparks and meet a new childhood hero that really went through a lot of trials and tribulations during this novel. The book mentioned how much Tabitha was a very intelligent little girl, and she definitely is. I don’t even think I could be able to handle even a fraction of the things that she was able to handle at her age. From her parents and her entire house basically disappearing one day, to having to live with her aunt Demonia, who really lives up to her name. Come on people, that name just tells you that there’s some sort of evil afoot. Who would name their child Demonia?! Clearly her parents knew that she was going to cause some problems as an adult.
I was also really glad that even though Tabitha lost her parents in such a mysterious way – and thank goodness it wasn’t something like they passed away or anything, but they just… disappeared out of thin air really – that Tabitha still had an adult in her life that was there to help her and continue to keep her safe in any way possible. Her tutor was absolutely amazing and we need more people like her in the world. Just saying.
All in all, I think this was a great first novel in the Tabitha Sparks trilogy, and I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.
