TOUR Audio - YA Fantasy - Looking for Dei by David A. Willson Narrator: Tanya Eby

Looking for Dei
by David A. Willson
Narrator: Tanya Eby
Length: 10 hours 5 minutes
Publisher: Seeker Press
Released: March 30th 2018
Genre: Fantasy

A new and intriguing fantasy world that has depth and perception. The world that pulls you in and make you believe that fantasy worlds are the only worlds that exist. This YA fantasy was filled with suspense, magic, secrets, fascination, and multiple viewpoints. There were the core characters but there was also more. The good thing and the bad thing that I found was the many angles/viewpoints to follow. Its good to see the varying degrees but at the same time it was a bit confusing on the senses. If a longer this may have been a benefit for the growth in to more. 

There was a completed and intricate cast of characters starting with Nara, Mykele, Kayna, and the others such as Bylo Willson, Gwyn, Dimmit and more. The characters were amazing, the settings detailed, the course and direction was filled with more and then some. I'm hoping this was just the beginning to the world found within this audio.

Tanya Eby did a good job with lending voice and dynamic to the characters and their POVs. I found the audio to be clear, smooth, and moving at an acceptable pace to not need a significant increase in speed.

 I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by David A. Willson. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it. 



Join Nara and Mykel on a journey through the Great Land....

Fifteen-year-old Nara Dall has never been good at keeping secrets. Yet it seems that her life has been filled with them, from the ugly scar on her back to the strange powers she possesses. Her mysterious adoptive father refuses to say anything about her origins, and soon, she and her best friend must attend the announcement ceremony, in which youths are tested for a magical gift. 

A gifted youth has not been announced in the poor village of Dimmitt for decades. When Nara uncovers the reason, she uses her own powers to make things right. The decision sets her and her friend on a path of danger, discovery, and a search for the divine. In the process, she learns the truth about herself and uncovers the biggest secret of all: the power of broken people.
 
David A. Willson has worked as a restauranteur, peace officer, and now, author. Taught by his mother to read at a young age, he spent his childhood exploring magic, spaceships, and other dimensions.

He lives there with his wife, five children, and 2 dogs.
