    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    Would you listen to Broken Harbor again? Why?

    I have listened to all of Tana French's books. I absolutely loved The Likeness and Faithful Place. and In the Woods was very good. This title is more in line with In the Woods. I enjoyed it, but I didn't feel complete at the end. In the Woods and Broken Harbor both left me wanting a little more from the story.
    If you listened to and liked her other books; give this one a shot, but don't expect this to be as good. If you haven't listened to her books, I would start with The Likeness.

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Peter V. Brett and/or Pete Bradbury?

    Probably not.


    What was most disappointing about Peter V. Brett’s story?

    This book was clumsily written, predictable pulp. The dialogue was so horrible that it was painful to listen to. About two thirds of the way through the story, it actually took a decent turn and the writing was at least palatable. For a little while, I thought that I may get the next book in the series, also. Then, the story plunged deeper into the predictable, clumsy dialogue that plagued the beginning.


    What three words best describe Pete Bradbury’s voice?

    The narration was okay, and his voice was good. The problem is that narration is supposed to give more life to the characters and story, but in this case, it just proved that there is no life in the story.


    What character would you cut from The Warded Man?

    I felt no connection to any of the characters.
