An ancient continent is missing from Earth.
A primeval darkness threatens mankind.
A modern woman discovers her destiny.

When undercover agent Lily Thatcher is ordered to undergo a dangerous medical mind-wipe procedure prior to re-assignment, she avoids arrest and becomes a rogue agent. She quickly learns that there are much greater forces at work that are far beyond her comprehension.

Timur Demyan, formerly known as the feared Tamerlane of the ancient Tumurid Empire, has forged an alliance with a loathsome creature called the Leviathan. This beast’s insatiable hunger is currently being fed by another world’s few remaining souls.

For now.

Their paths meet at a showdown, but Lily knows that there’s far more at stake than just her mortality. A morbid question looms in the back of her mind:

Can she prevent Earth’s Apocalyptic Fate?

NARRATOR PERFORMANCE: 9/10

 

 

  • Narrator-Story Connection: 10/10

Kudos to narrator Andrea Emmes who always does an excellent job embodying the scope of the story with all its characters. Believe me, the scope was pretty broad in this one!

 

  • Voice Creation/Switch Over:  9/10

The voices were spot on for the protagonists and antagonist. What helps make it more believable is the narrators ability to infuse emotion into their character. Andrea Emmes is very skilled in this area.

 

  • Pacing 9/10

Great pacing employed throughout the story. I’m sure this is a lot harder than it sounds. The story flowed well from beginning to end.

 

  • Emphasis 10/10

Excellent. The emotional quality of each main character is key, as well as emphasizing the quirks of each personality. No easy feat to accomplish!

 

  • Reader-Story Connection  8/10

Only the skill of the narrator kept in the story of this book. There’s a lot of different elements in the plot line that made it challenging for me.

 

  • Sound Quality: 10/10

Publisher:   R. M. Mulder

Perfect.

 

  • Overall Performance: 9/10 

The narration was a big reason why I choose this title. I can’t emphasize enough having a good narrator for an audiobook. If it were in any other format I wouldn’t have read this at all, but because of good narration I could appreciate the story.
