Publisher's Summary

Beneath the light of a full moon, the Nightbloods and Seers are dancing. They are dancing as they await another Awakening, a dream that defines every witch's destiny. It doesn't matter that the coven is cheering and anticipating her turn into womanhood, because Calli doesn't want any of it.
She doesn't want to see the face of the hired hand Isaiah, nor does she desire the pursuits of a very determined Nightblood as she runs from a future with the Ordinary help. She knows that regardless of whether she taps into forbidden magic or not, an Awakening is rumored to hold ultimate power over the Seer who dreams it.
While the other Seers her age are given to their parties, their enchantments, and the lust of Nightblood suitors, Calli must choose how she'll endure the worst of her visions. There may be a way to survive her sleep, but she's not sure she can defeat the truth that will find her when she's wide awake.
Does real love even stand a chance against the darkest of magic?

If you could sum up The Short Life of Sparrows in three words, what would they be?

Seductive, whimsical and very enchanting.

What other book might you compare The Short Life of Sparrows to, and why?

It's not fair to compare one book to another as my comparison can put people off or mislead. This is a really good book! It's about love, friendship, betrayal, loyalty, secrets and lies forgiveness and letting go in order to find happiness. If that sounds good then give it a go.

What does Pamela Lorence bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great narration bringing the story to live. Both points of view from the main characters are strong and well performed. Very good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. It only took two!
