    As people start to recall the Oracle's prophecy, Erius begins to quietly kill off his female relatives who pose the only threat to his monarchy. Constantly in fear for her life, Princess Ariani the King's sister, gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl.

    Wonderful story and characters! I love the themes explored in this book, but it's never heavy handed. Good narration, too. I'm looking forward to the other two books in this series.

    Liga lives modestly in her own personal heaven, given to her by natural magic in exchange for her earthly life. Her two daughters, gentle Branza and curious Urdda, grow up in this soft world, protected from the violence, predation, and village prejudice that once harmed their mother. But the real world cannot be denied forever - magicked men and wild bears break down the borders of Liga's refuge. Now, having known heaven, how will these three women survive in a world where beauty and brutality lie side by side?

    Overall

    I loved the darkness and rich innocence of this created world. The characters and culture presented are a mix of old village life, fairy tale, and ... sexual perversion and cruelty. This story has incest, rape, and retaliatory sodomy. I can't figure out how it wound up in Audible Kids! It's a very well told tale--original, beautiful, and powerful--but it's not for kids.

    The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather have stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stick-up men who've spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system.

    Tony B. says: "Another winner for Davenport fans"
    "Simply Horrible"
    Overall

    Nasty characters doing and saying ugly, disjointed things. I couldn't get away from these characters and this story fast enough! I have very eclectic taste in audiobooks, but I couldn't get past the first half hour of this one.

    The other reviewer who wanted his money back was right. This was on sale, but it is no bargain! I want my $9.95 back, too . . . .
