This is definitely one of my favourites.
It has mystery, suspense, action, romance . I couldn't put it down. I also love the narrators accents. One of the best narrators I've listened to.
without giving to much of the story away. I liked the challenges.
I cannot understand why this book is available on audible and the first book in this series 'Wildwood Dancing' is not. That is her sister Jena's story which explains what happened to Tati in more detail for anyone who's curious.
The chapters were also a little long. Which made it impossible to leave the story in a good place. Although I barely put the book down anyway.
