Sixteen-year-old Lillim Callina is good at two things: running away and magic.

So when a dragon plotting to take over the world offers her a choice - work for him or else...

What a strange story. I expected to check and see that this was part two or even three of a series but it is part one.
This story has Lillim working with werewolves, and then she’s against vampires, but then demons and even dragons. I do know that all of these creatures can be in fantasy books, and sometimes they make fabulous stories, but it seemed way too convoluted for this one.
Then, Lillim tells her stories as in she was doing such and such way back then. Or the fact that she was the other person in another life. That’s all great but how did this stuff happen and why? I never felt like I understood her story and never cared if she lived or died while fighting all of these mystical creatures. There was no real connection because it is sort of flat.
The narrator, Rebecca Roberts, does a great job of acting the way the book says Lillim would act, but again, the story says that she will or will not do something and I would rather just feel it than be told how something is supposed to go. Rebecca Roberts does do a good job of inserting emotion into Lillim and allowing the listening to try to get close to her.
Sadly, for me this was just too far fetched. Way too much stuff going on and too many characters to understand why they were in the story.
