    Sergey and Marina Dyachenko mix dramatic scenes with romance, action and wit, in a style both direct and lyrical. Written with a sure artistic hand, The Scar is the story of a man driven by his own feverish demons to find redemption and the woman who just might save him. Egert is a brash, confident member of the elite guards and an egotistical philanderer. But after he kills an innocent student in a duel, a mysterious man known as “The Wanderer” challenges Egert and slashes his face with his sword, leaving Egert with a scar that comes to symbolize his cowardice.

    Story
    Where does The Scar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This story ranked up there...no doubt. It has some strong moral lessons about doing what's right, regardless of your rights.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scar?

    There were several, the first being the fight between the Traveler and Lt. Seoul. The good Lieutenants insistence of his innocence rather than admit that he showed poor judgment and could have been morally wrong even though socially correct. The most important point was when his newfound love showed him the path to redemption, although unknown to Egert. Her willingness to stand for him, the murderer of her betrothed, was as selfless as any I've seen, and provided much needed reminders of how we should be willing to go the extra mile for a stranger.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?

    Although a min or part, the contribution of the Traveler was without a doubt the most enlightening of any in this story. He both laid out the plot, and showed the path to redemption for the main characters in such a way that I've not seen since the Soothsayer warned Ceaser, "Beware the Ides of March!"


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely. I listen while driving between jobs (sometimes upwards of 3 hour trips) and occasionally needed to make an extra coffee stop just to get to the next chapter break.
