Audiobook Review: Believe by Nanette O’Neal

Best friends share everything, right? Unless it’s a secret that could cost them their lives. Robyn and Kit are born with forbidden magic-sense, the power to see and hear beyond Earthly sight and sound. It’s a curse that haunts them, but the girls are strangely drawn to it—could there be more to this power than they’ve been told?

When they spill their secret, it opens a doorway back to Forever—a beautiful realm where magic-sense began. They learn the truth: they have been given a noble gift. It connects them to the Skyborn royalty of this new world. They’ve been summoned back by the forces for good to preserve the kingdom and revive the power where it once flourished—on Earth. It can thrive again, if Robyn and Kit are brave enough to follow.

However, the doorway awakens more than magical fairy-tales. A dark force is unleashed—one that has battled the Skyborn since time began, and it wants the girls dead, the Earth destroyed.

Beyond the doorway is where the adventure begins—trickery, kidnapping, a prison break, rescue teams, sword fights, magical gold-dust, holographic medallions, and singing orbs—but only for those who have the courage to believe.

My Review

I chose to listen to this book after receiving a free audio copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Kit and Robyn are new friends, but they both believe in magic which is now a crime. In fact, they both have magic-sense, the power to see and hear more than most people on Earth can. They end up in another world where magic, both good and bad, is everywhere. Nanette O’Neal has built an interesting new world, and I look forward to reading more about it.

Kit, Robyn, and Cam (Robyn’s brother) are just starting their adventures in Believe. They each face their own challenge as they face the dark force that wants them dead. Will they all survive the threats that they face?

The narrator, Joe Christensen, has a voice that is pleasant to listen to. He has good pace and timing, and he brought the story to life.

Believe is a great book for middle-grade readers. It has magic, adventure, fantasy, suspense, battles…it has everything most kids love to read about!

Snippet

Robyn and Kit are best friends who share everything—unless it could get them killed. They both have magic-sense, a dangerous curse where they see and hear things beyond earthly sight and sound. Robyn sees things that aren’t there, and Kit hears voices when no one is in the room. They dare not tell each other because it could get them arrested, but they can’t stop thinking about it. Finally, when the local bully, Logan, goes too far and teases Robyn about her secret in front of Kit, they spill their guts to each other and a magical doorway appears. It has a special message carved on it: Welcome Skyborn Warrior. Your Awakening is Now. It’s an invitation to step through, but there’s a problem: Robyn sees it, but Kit doesn’t.
