The Regional Office is Under Attack

From Goodreads:
In a world beset by amassing forces of darkness, one organization—the Regional Office—and its coterie of super-powered female assassins protects the globe from annihilation. At its helm, the mysterious Oyemi and her oracles seek out new recruits and root out evil plots. Then a prophecy suggests that someone from inside might bring about its downfall. And now, the Regional Office is under attack.

Recruited by a defector from within, Rose is a young assassin leading the attack, eager to stretch into her powers and prove herself on her first mission. Defending the Regional Office is Sarah—who may or may not have a mechanical arm—fiercely devoted to the organization that took her in as a young woman in the wake of her mother’s sudden disappearance. On the day that the Regional Office is attacked, Rose’s and Sarah’s stories will overlap, their lives will collide, and the world as they know it just might end

From Me:
Hmmmm.  It was fun.  But maybe not for me.
I got very caught up in the 'attack' but then didn't completely understand why and what they were attacking.
It's told from different POV and I like that as I feel it gives a better understanding, helps me to understand the different characters.
I listened to this on audio, and maybe that's why it lost me---I couldn't turn back to figure things out.  Great narrators tho!
Like I said---it was fun and I did enjoy it---just didn't love it.

I don't think that's for me either.

I listened to this on audio, too, and while I love the performance I didn't love this book as much as the couple people that recommended it to me.

Doesn't really sound like my kind of book either...

I hate that about audios too. I know people say you can rewind--but what if you are listening when you are driving or you are arm deep in mud out in the garden or dripping in disinfectant as you clean the bathrooms?!
