Rules of Stone by Alex Lidell narrated by Victoria Mei

Rules of Stone audiobook cover artBook Summary

One elite fae warrior. Four superior officers. A bond they can’t remember - or resist. 
Lera was once human. Now, with dark magic leaking into the mortal world, Lera and her four fae warriors must protect her home realm - even if that means going undercover to a human military academy. But when a sudden, terrible accident melds the males with their human disguise, everything changes. Now it’s up to Lera to make her mates remember themselves, their mission, and her, before the entire mortal world pays the price.
River, Shade, Tye, and Coal can’t overlook the gorgeous new cadet who’s just arrived at Great Falls Academy, but when the tantalizing Lera starts breaking rules and ignoring orders, the four senior officers intend to put her in her place. Lera will learn or she will quit - that is just how Great Falls works. 
Rules of Stone is the first episode in the Great Falls Academy novella series, featuring the same reverse-harem cast as Alex Lidell’s internationally best-selling Power of Five series. Episodes (novellas) will be released in one-month intervals and feature a complete internal plot, as well as an overall season arc. (Listening to the Power of Five novels is not necessary to enjoy Great Falls Academy.)
Join Lera and her males for an all-new Power of Five adventure!

My Thoughts:
I was so very excited to get this book and listen to it. It has a promising summary and is the first episode in the series, so it was a short listen. Unfortunately, I didn't connect with the characters at all. The overall story was there, and it wasn't bad, I just couldn't get into it. Lera and her four mates have a cool mated bond and I thought the extreme differences in the men was a good idea. 
What I absolutely loved about the book was the narrator's voice. She did a wonderful job, especially with the growly voice from the wolf shifter. That was probably my favorite! I would listen to more of her book narrations, hands down.
I thought the book itself was a 2/5, the narrator was a 4/5 so combined, I would say a 3/5 overall.

Thank you to the author/narrator for the review copy of this book via audiobook obsession. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
