Inhaltsangabe

Gifted with meta-human powers in a world full of capes and villains, Tori Rivas kept away from the limelight, preferring to work as a thief in the shadows. But when she's captured trying to rob a vault that belongs to a secret guild of villains, she's offered a hard choice: prove she has what it takes to join them or be eliminated.

Apprenticed to one of the world's most powerful (and supposedly dead) villains, she is thrust into a strange world where the lines that divide superheroes and criminals are more complex than they seem. The education of a villain is not an easy one, and Tori will have to learn quickly if she wants to survive. On top of the peril she faces from her own teacher, there are also the capes and fellow apprentices to worry about, to say nothing of having to keep up a civilian cover.

Most dangerous of all, though, are those who loathe the guild's very existence. Old grudges mean some are willing to go to any length to see the guild turned to ash, along with each one of its members. Even the lowly apprentices.

Great story, okay narrator

As usual, Drew Hayes created a world with just enough detail to be submerged in but not so much as to be overwhelmed. The story was good, even when the tension could have been greater.

My main point of critic is the narrator. Since the main character is female, a female narrator seems the obvious pick. I did not listen to many female narrators, so I have close to no point of reference, but the way she speaks male voices makes me cringe. I will most certainly listen to any sequel, but I wished they would've gone for a second narrator to speak the male parts.
