Publisher's Summary

Victor Morgan’s entire life has been in the limelight. Groomed by his fierce mother as a piano prodigy, intent on using him to build a legacy for the Morgan name.

But legacies require the utmost in care. Any little disaster can cause a mountain of problems.

After a 17th birthday party ends in catastrophe, a fight with his parents sends Victor out into the world for the first time on his own. With his Academy team and Sang by his side, it’s everything he’s wanted for years. It’s his time to get out from under his parents’ oppressive control and finally be himself.

But Victor is a local celebrity in the Charleston community. His name and face have been everywhere. His every move is noticed. When his actions lead to the risk of a very public exposure of himself and his team, including thwarting Sang’s chances at remaining a Ghost Bird, Victor realizes the life his mother built may jeopardize everything. The Morgan name may just be his downfall.

There may be no escape. The only way to save Sang and his team might be to give up what he really wants more than anything: to finally be the real Victor Morgan.

News reporter?? Apparently the narrater is now

Not finished the book yet, and having a hard time. The narrator COMPLETELY changed how she narrates this book and sounds like she should be reporting the news versus reading a story. Its very hard to listen to. I've invested my time in all the books this far, so I'm going to continue, but I'll give zero stars for performance. The story is really dragging too. We need to speed some things up. I'll update my rating on the story once I'm finished, but so far dreading listening to this awful narration to continue. I'm probably going to read most of it myself to save myself from the pain I feel listening to this 🙄

update: story did not changed my rating even lower. This story keeps dragging on and I'm losing interest.

Great story, narration a little off

I am a huge fan or this series. Natalie does an amazing job bringing the characters to life. There was a decent time gap between this book and the last. It feels as though maybe she forgot how she made all the guys sound? Usually she's able to make all 9 guys sound different and recognizable. This time around I struggled to tell the difference between some of them. Silas accent wasn't present for half his lines either. Overall, she did an amazing job as usual. Just seemed to fall out of touch a tad with the cast.

It's still a great story and performed very well. You should definitely pick it up!

What happened…?

The ridiculously extensive wait for this story is NOT worth your credit. I’m so confused. The characters don’t act like their former selves. Even Natalie Eaton’s amazing talents have matured, so that the characters aren’t as fresh-faced (voiced) as before. The verbiage is even off. It’s clear that CL Stone lost her love for this story, and seems to just be checking off the boxes at this point.

Volto, check.
Multiple characters that are duplicates of each other, check.
Sang whining and blushing every third paragraph, checkkity check check.

At this point, if CL Stone wants to resurrect this story, I’d say to bring the characters forward, so they’ve aged WITH us. Maybe separate them and bring them back during college or something. Because I can’t do any more of this naive-blonde girl-you really think I’m pretty?-crap. There’s been an influx of superior stories since the ghost bird series moved out. I dare CL Stone to do better and earn my money.

Read Out of order

Chapter 13 Pietoso is out of order and should’ve come around earlier in chapters after Capriccios and before Emporte. Unfortunately the flow was off.

Hopefully someone can fix it

It was good and bad...

Okay, first of all, I was really excited for Unsung Requiem, I even bought the whole ebook and audio version cuz I really love the whole story. But I invested in the audiobook more because Natalie Eaton was that good for me in the past 12 books. She really captured each character's voices!!

Now I'm kind of regretting using my credit for the audiobook version. Maybe I should've stick with the ebook. Why?

First, I don't know if it's really the same narrator but the voices were off. The narrator sounded like a broadcaster and was inconsistent with the voices of each character. I had to stick it in my mind that maybe they were all grown up a bit and got matured. Sang's voice was there but you'll really have to listen. Even Victor's voice is different. Near the end though, some voices were back.

Second, I don't know why but this books seems really different from the previous books. It didn't feel like it's part of the whole Ghostbird series. Nathan and Dr. Green's books was not like this at all. Maybe I just got used to Sang being the center of attention everytime. But I like that CL Stone is introducing Victor's life to her readers. This book just felt a little off to me.

Third, I don't know if you guys had the same issue but the audiobook I got has four chapters that was not in order (chapter 10-13). I had to check the ebook version.

I hope the next installment gets better. And the narrator too.
