    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    AD 2053. Earth has barely recovered from a supernova that destroyed much of its infrastructure, and now a deadly particle storm is racing toward it. An international effort has been launched out of the Sky City space colony to save the planet, but the plan to build a giant protective shield is falling dangerously behind schedule. A series of murders has disrupted the workforce, so a brilliant but monstrous criminal has been enlisted to track down the killer. Then more startling news arises.

    The totalitarian East has triumphed in a massive invasion, and the United States has fallen to a dictatorial superpower bent on total domination. That power is consolidating its grip through concentration camps, police state tactics, and a total monopoly upon the very thoughts of the conquered populace. A tiny enclave of scientists and soldiers survives, unbeknownst to America’s new rulers. It’s six against six million - but those six happen to include a scientific genius, a master of subterfuge and disguise who learned his trade as a lawyer-turned-hobo, and a tough-minded commander....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Cut out all the bull about her struggle with sex- what crap- did this author have an aggenda or issue with it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rhiannon Frater again?

    Not if the writing continues on the same course.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Cut out all refrences to her sex life and stick with the story line


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The First Days?

    Gee I guess I already said that.

    If you could sum up The Circle of Sorcerers in three words, what would they be?

    Captivatiing!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the writer drags you into the story- makes you feel you are involved.


    What does Justin D. Torres bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His reading helps the overall objectives of the writer- to get you involved- you become one of the characters, whether the lead or just an observer- you are there.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No just anticipation of the flow of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Be patient allow the characters to develop, not in a dragging along way, but wait for them to mature, let the circumstances of the story move them to be the heroes and villians the story itself demands.
