I stumbled on this multiple times before I decided to give it a shot also since I once again forgot that the next two books were not available to me at this time, I will probably only listening to this one and may look out for the others.
That may seem like an ominous start to a review, but I must admit that I enjoyed the book. It felt the perfect introduction to someone younger deciding to try out the fantasy genre. We meet a world where magic is dying, and one of the last holdouts are corralled into organizations. One such organization is being run by a foundling. She is doing a good job, and a new foundling is delivered to them and Jennifer and Tiger then bond as a team because things are shaking up. There is a prophecy that the last dragon is to be slain, and that has everyone worked up.
It was this latter aspect that was the tongue-in-cheek commentary about the priorities people in our current world, and it was done in a simple enough fashion that I am sure inquisitive minds will find it. This is probably the main reason I might recommend it to my nieces(my nephew would have to wait a few more years for me to suggest it to him) in the coming years. It has a teenage girl set up in a precarious situation who listens to her gut against adversities bigger and stronger than her (at least in the very beginning).
My last KU review was Dead Stop (Sydney Rose Parnell #2) by Barbara Nickless, and I stopped listening to Expose at some point, so my queue went through another change

Have heard of Fforde and been meaning to read earlier books, this title sounds good. Have been trying Audible for a couple of months, they have some very interesting exclusives.
