Audio Book Review: Chase The Dark (Steel & Stone #1) By Annette Marie

Chase the Dark (Steel & Stone) (Volume 1) - Marie Annette Brown


My Review:


Why I let this book sit in my TBR pile for two months is beyond me because this proved to be an amazing action packed read! I adored this first novel and intend to pick up the next book right away. I hadn't heard of this author before, which is strange considering how good the ratings over on Goodreads and Amazon are for this book.


Piper was an awesome character that came off just the right amount of flawed (in her world) for the reader to relate to how she was feeling. I also enjoyed being lost with her while everyone figured out what to do next. She also made some unexpected friends right off the bat, which I couldn't help but be suspicious of. All of that made the story entertaining and move along at a reasonable pace.


I'd like to say that I am Team Ash and proud. At first he seemed standoffish and emotionless. By the time they had escaped a near death experience he seemed to somewhat warm up to everyone. I loved the moments he and Piper had together. They were so sweet and totally made me rethink his exterior persona. 


Lyre was very entertaining, but I didn't understand the obsession he had with kissing Piper. He has two sides to him: super laid back or somewhat creepy. He helped lighten the mood and move the story along. I was laughing so hard that I almost cried when I was listening to the boiler room scene.


I can't wait to find out what happens next, considering that the ending left me with a lot of questions about Ash and why he did what he did. I can't say anything more than that or I'd be giving a very interesting part of the story away. This book just doesn't deserve a spoiler, it deserves to be devoured. That's how highly I think of this book.


The Audio Book:



I really enjoyed the voices for Ash and Lyre. In some scenes Piper sounded very nasal, to the point of pulling me out of the story and mentally making note of it. Overall it was awesome and I would listen to future readings by Jorjeana Marie
