I have the pleasure today of taking part in the one day blog blitz for the audiobook of Wild Skies, book two in the Relic Hunters series by Lexi Rees. Many thanks to Lexi for providing me with a copy of this audiobook, and to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in the blitz.
After delivering the pearl, Finn and Aria thought life would return to normal.
But with the survival of the clans still in peril, they must continue their quest.
Can they find the next relic before the forces of evil?
Not everyone is who they appear to be, and time is running out …
Regular readers will know that I am a big fan of Lexi Rees and her Relic Hunters series, and have previously read and reviewed Wild Skies in ebook format. You can read my review here. As much as I enjoy reading these books myself, there is something about them that just clicks for me as an audiobook. Whether it is experiencing the sense of adventure brought to life from the page, or nostalgic feelings of when my parents used to read me a bedtime story, I can’t say, but something about it just makes me feel warm and comforted.
Lexi Rees incorporates her own love of sailing and horse riding across the Relic Hunter series, and her passion for these activities really shines through.
Once again, Chris Devon brings the characters alive beautifully, and I particularly loved his characterisation of Rahfi. Rahfi was a particular favourite of mine when I was reading Wild Skies, and Chris just seemed to capture his essence perfectly.
I am eagerly awaiting the next instalment of the Relic Hunters adventures and know that I will be both reading and listening to it.
