[Boku no Ai o Shire!] have been Other than that I loved the plot It was entertaining and kept my attention till the endI pretty much loved all the characters The author spent a lot of time on character development which showed because they were all well written We find out bit by bit about Lilith and who she is She is so uncertain oferself what with The Boy Who Would Not Say His Name her disability and the fact thater powers seem unreliable yet she is also feisty and brave which we see when she is taken and made art of the Council against Job-Hunting for the So-Called Handicapped her will She was such an easy to like character and was probably why I liked the book as much as I did The council of course are a shady bunch of witches All Lilith knows is what sheas grown up listening to but now that she is to become one of them she starts to see that they aren t what she thought I loved the idea of the Sage and what she is I m actually really looking forward to the next one to get information on the council and the rogue group I feel that now the world building is done in this book we can concentrate on the nitty gritty details In all this was a great read I was delighted that the author chose to focus on the world and character building and not on romance It was a pleasant change from some of the other YA books I ve read I feel like I like Lilith for the fact she is so intent on getting answers and doesn t swoon at the first sight of a boy Filled with some awesome characters great word building lies deceit and betrayal it s one I can recommend to all This is my first time listening to this narrator and it definitely won t be my last Lynn Norris was brilliant She The Hunger Within had plenty of tones and voices for the characters and really puter all into bringing them alive Her inflections were spot on and the world came alive under Between Two Skies her narration I willave to check out from Witch-Hunting in Seventeenth-Century New England her I was given this audiobook at my reuest andave voluntarily left this review This in no way affected no.
