Don’t pick this up if
You don’t like it when too convenient things happen. You don’t like soft magic. You hate it when characters do dumb things. You don’t want on the page violent scenes. You hate it when authors spend a lot of time building the second book.

I get asked how I read so many books. This is how I do it:
Kindle Unlimited (definitely worth it for romance readers)
Audible (2 free audiobooks for your first month); I have the Audible Premium Plus with 2 credits a month
Prime membership allows me to get new books at my doorstep fast (get the first month free). I have Prime Student which comes with a 6 month free trial.
I also had Audible Escape but it got cancelled 😦
But Audible Plus is supposed to have a lot of books across all genres
