Audiobook Review – Lock and Key

What do a mysterious necklace, forbidden Blood Magic rituals, and a sarcastic Nocturne boy with the face of a fallen angel all have in common?

Me, apparently.

Since I started school at Nocturne Academy, strange happenings have befallen me. The werid key-shaped necklace I found at a flea market chokes me every time I try to take it off. Also, a tall, blindingly beautiful and bitingly sarcastic Nocturne has the lock that matches it.

His name is Griffin Darkheart and–like this freaking necklace–I can’t seem to stay away from him, though he’s being Censured for mysterious crimes. Among a student body composed of vampires, witches, were-dragons, and fairies, I no longer know what my future holds.

To heck with graduating with honors–I’m just hoping to graduate alive! Nocturne Academy is full of deadly dangers.

And I’ve already got a target on my back…

Readers who love Bully romance, brooding vampires, were-dragons, witches, warlocks, fairies, and fae will sink their teeth into Nocturne Academy where there are dark secrets, forbidden magic, and determined heroines just trying to survive.

Review

I said this is the first book I’ve ever listened to by Evangline Anderson and I have to say this because very intriguing. It did take me a little bit to get through because I feel like you’re just kind of thrown into this world and it takes a little bit to understand the language being used. Because there is this whole system of magic put into play and some of the labels in terms were a little difficult to kind of understand and I feel like it’s not really explain. By the end I understood and I got it.

The main character I really liked when you’re first learning about her magic you’re kind of not put off by it but like yeah I understand why she’s doing what she’s doing. I don’t want to give away any spoilers. I love a good academy novel I love anything with vampires and witches in anything that is otherworldly. But I love the fact that they don’t have a werewolves in this book they have were-dragons.

Riley Barrett is the woman who narrates this book. This is the first book I’ve listened to by voice actress Riley Barrett and it was a great time. Riley has a very smooth voice and for each character she has a distinct voice so you know who she’s reading for. I don’t believe she had to put on any type of accent for any of the characters so I can’t attach to her range of accents. Overall I would definitely listen to another book that she would narrate.

Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of wonderland. Please don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out.

Until next time

Happy reading

Much love
