Publisher's Summary

They won the battle. For now. But Junco lost more than she can handle to get that job done. The ancient aliens are returning to Earth and their long-awaited prophecy is about to unfold.

Lucan and his army need Junco to do her job if they have any chance of living through the ancient prophecy. They need her to follow directions and focus

But Junco’s friends are dead - some of them at her own hand. 

Her home is gone, her mind is more unstable than ever, and ghosts from the past are haunting her. 

And now she finds out they’ve been lying to her? How could she ever trust anyone again? 

Can a girl who was born a monster feel loyalty and love? 

Or will she let them all die in the end?

The most beautiful story written by JA Huss

This is absolutely the best romantic story I could imagine! My favorite book by JA Huss. Unlike anything else I’ve read by her and I’ve read them all!! It’s classic romance, not dark like most of them are. I love those too for sure. But this one...this love story is just beautiful! “I’m more than satisfied!” Kristen’s narrative was THE BEST!! Her voice of the characters was spot on! She sounded just like one would expect Junco to sound. And her Tier voice made me completely fall in love with him. It was hard to follow the others for I Am Not Junco because her voice was stuck in my head from I Am Just Junco. However, I was so, so, so happy to have the opportunity to read and listen to this story! I don’t think another book will ever top it!!

I need more!

I’m obsessed! I don’t know what she can even expand on to be honest, but I want her to try. I need more Junco in my life!

The plan is to have no plan

Perhaps it’s my fault. Perhaps my feeble mind simply couldn’t wrap my head around the complexity of the series. But, having finished the entire thing, I couldn’t explain what happened in the end or why the good guys won. This omnibus containing books 4-6 lost a lot of luster from the fresh and vicious first trio. There’s much less killing, just as much swearing, and much more belaboring of Junco’s tortured life.

“It’s not okay; it’s very far from okay because I’ve been here at the edge of my sanity so many times now, it’s starting to feel like home.”
Book 4: Range: Junco continues in a never ending cycle of crazy self destruction as differing factions continue to ask her to take actions based upon blind faith in their secret plans. While it’s true she’s been subjected to the trials of Job, I felt like she spent a lot of time holding big pity parties and rashly trying to punish folks without any true strategy or care for what consequences could follow. I like damaged heroes if they are also smart heroes; Junco was just damaged.

“I am the demon and the demon is me.”
Book 5: Magpie Bridge: Really?! Five books in and still we have the various sides bickering and scheming without the author explaining what in tarnation is going on. Beyond frustrating! There is, however,
a tonal shift and now we get three male narrators for a bunch of POVs. I get maybe showing us Tier and Lucan’s POV, but Ashur, Annun, or Tessen? It felt unnecessary and disrupted the rhythm of the story.
As much as I enjoy Steve West and Ray Porter elsewhere, narrator Kristen Sieh was so phenomenal,
I would have preferred to let her continue solo. This book attempted to explain the plot with mythology wrapped in flashbacks and divided into multiple characters, but only succeeded in convincing me that the author bit off more than she could chew.

“Killing has always been my one true super power.”
Book 6: Return: We get a climax and comeuppances and plans come together. But I have so many questions, big and small. What was the point of the seven entering the pillars? Why have each of them connected to one of the departed? Why did people’s hair color lighten as they leveled up? Are we really expected to believe that millennia old beings are so petty and cruel? And the idea that all these schemers relied upon legions of followers doing horrible things on blind faith, without the slightest clue how their actions fit into the plan? So many new uber powers and concepts (metamorphosis, time manipulation, soul capturing…) and confusing motivations. I think I could listen to this again and still not understand the hows and whys. Only, I’m not sure I care to go thru the effort.

elaborate world with enjoyable characters

trying to think of just exactly what I could write about the story without ruining it for YOU. junco is a confused, shit slinging, slut trainwreck of a character and shes perfect. And I think the author had it in mind to try and turn each reader into the same. I gave it high marks because I was fully entertained and engaged in this confusing multi leveled story that deftly left cornbread sized clues along the way but no honey butter or milk to wash it down until the end. it took me 15 minutes at the end of the first one to purchase the second book and start listening again. not a personal record, but indicative of my enjoyment.

This story had so much potential

The first three books were good till you realize that all everyone did was lie abuse junco. The next book in series starts with every two sentences junco is crying none stop. For someone who is powerful as they say, all she does is literally cry. How can you really love the ppl around when it constant lie? The whole team lies to her. Tier is abusive and abduct her against her will. Like what the hell is that and she still telling him she wants to be with him. The title of this book should have been we have secrets and we continue to lie to you at every opportunity.

Julie Huss is the bomb

This my 2nd time listening to the entire Junco series. I can see why you are so fond of it. Audible peeps, this is a truly a great read. As with many of her books, especially the Company series, they really suck you in. Also, I am not Junco has some great narrators at the end that really boost the last portion of the story. Kudos to the main narrator as she does an awesome job throughout both in the series.

Sublime writing

This saga is an act of genius - the sheer brilliance of which comes along so very rarely. The narration was spot on throughout and the production was good. I would highly recommend this series to any reader/listener who adores truly epic fiction. Yes, it is complicated to follow all of the different strands of the plot, but like all great art it rewards you for the mental effort many times over. This is one of those stories that will change your world view, and stay with you always, becoming a part of your very soul.

Not my norm - but loved it !!

I was little sceptical adding this one to my library - it’s much longer than I normally like my books and I’m not really into the alien side of things but I really loved it JAHuss did an amazing job
