    Raybould Marsh is a British secret agent in the early days of World War II, haunted by something strange he saw on a mission during the Spanish Civil War: a German woman with wires going into her head who looked at him as if she knew him. It wasn’t his imagination; the wired woman can see into the future and use her knowledge to twist the present. In fact, Marsh soon discovers that the Nazis are running missions with people who have special powers....

    Story
    Would you listen to Bitter Seeds again? Why?

    The story is complex, and may require more than one listen, many story lines are woven into one all-encompassing plot line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The concept: it's fascinating. Considering that Hitler was such a fan of the occult and science...this story fits very well into the 'what if' scenario for the SS and what Hitler could have / might have done if he'd had the chance.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The description of the Taragon Film; where all the battery charged students are displaying their abilities.


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

    It made me think hard about what levels of technology we have today versus what was cutting edge in 1940-41...if this is 'what might have been' then what are we headed towards today?


    Any additional comments?

    If you're not a fan of the WWII genre or steampunk, or accustomed to hearing German spoken/written, then you may have a hard time understanding sections of this book. However, don't pass up a great tale just because you may not know the language. Tregillis has woven a fascinating tale.
