    What did you love best about Lord of Darkness?

    The overall story and the Ghost being a different character than the other men of the times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were a couple of scences which made me smile...no chuckle. :)


    Have you listened to any of Emma Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't, but overall I enjoyed her performance even though there were a couple of characters' voices were too "stuffy" and drawn out...especially compared to the previous narrator's choices of intonation.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When one character realizes looking back is not the optimum course in life.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the "read" - ok the listen! :)

    Where does Split Second rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Split Second is a very good story and it ranks high with other stories I've listened to.


    What other book might you compare Split Second to and why?

    To some of the Pink Carnation series - just in the sense that I like intrigue and suspense with even the slightest hint of romance or a good bonding relationship.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    None, but I'll keep him in the loop of authors to scout.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some sad parts.
