It’s no secret that I love the Kill or Cure trilogy by Pixie Britton and I was gloomy that the trilogy had ended but in came Pixie on a white stead to save the day with Shakira Shute in tow and the first book on audio.
We all know I love this series and if you want to read my reviews of the books you can take a look here (Kill or Cure, Kill or Cure: Bloodlust and Kill or Cure: Oblivion). This is not going to be a post rehashing what I thought of the books but what I thought of how well the first book translated to audio.
This is the first audiobook I have heard from Shakira Shute and it was magical. It is a whole new experience having a story you love being told to you. It almost reminded me of having my mum read to me when I was little (oh the feels). Shakira manages to perfectly encapsulate the story and the raw emotions that are woven through this tale. Shakira bringing’s Pixie’s remarkable work to a new level. The book its self is emotive, intense and the characters are stupidly easy to connect to and Shakira has done a brilliant job of portraying this through the audio.
In parts I found myself experiencing the story in a new
way. There are chapters that I never looked into past the surface level while
reading the book that gained more physicality and I more detail through the
audiobook. Which is an attack on myself as a reader I am fully aware of.
