Audio: Never look back



Good narration from these two narrators. They had their own chapters and they did each other´s characters well.


I listened to one of my freebies, and a re-telling of Orpheus and Eurydice sounded interesting.

At first I did not know what to think. Eury was suffering from ptsd after the hurricanes in Puerto Rico. So when we had flashbacks of her talking to this boy, well they were clearly real! But were they actually real, I mean was this fiction or a paranormal? But yeah spirits are real, and her creepy best friend is real and wants to take her to the underworld. I guess that makes him Hades.

Eury meets Pheus in New York. He is a bit of a player, a great musician and they fall for each other. But she is haunted and the story takes a darker turn.

A good retelling, and I liked the spirits of this world. It would be interesting to see more. Also, a happier ending than the original.

YA fiction paranormal Own

Eury comes to the Bronx as a girl haunted. Haunted by losing everything in Hurricane Maria--and by an evil spirit, Ato. She fully expects the tragedy that befell her and her family in Puerto Rico to catch up with her in New York. Yet, for a time, she can almost set this fear aside, because there's this boy . . .

Pheus is a golden-voiced, bachata-singing charmer, ready to spend the summer on the beach with his friends, serenading his on-again, off-again flame. That changes when he meets Eury. All he wants is to put a smile on her face and fight off her demons. But some dangers are too powerful for even the strongest love, and as the world threatens to tear them apart, Eury and Pheus must fight for each other and their lives.


  1. It is always nice to read a book from the freebie pile!

  2. Is this the myth where he is leading her out of the underworld and he isn't allowed to turn around and look? That is the basis for the Broadway musical Hadestown. So tragic. Glad this is better.

    1. Yes he can´t look back stupid man, but it ends well

  3. Glad to hear it had a happier ending. I'm not one for the tragedies.

  4. I like it when they have different narrators for different povs, makes it more immersive.
