    Story
    (311)

    Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck's reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle - disguised and alone - to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the 35-year spell of a madman.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, well spent, it was entertaining.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Unknotting the plot on why the charectors were acting so strange.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not sure.


    Do you think Bitterblue needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Out of the three books, this one was my least favorite.
    I really enjoyed Fire and Graceling better.

    It just wasn't as exciting.

  • Blue Lily, Lily Blue: Book 3 of the Raven Cycle

    Story
    (157)

    Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs. The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost. Friends can betray. Mothers can disappear. Visions can mislead. Certainties can unravel.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story just seemed to lose itself and did not really fit in with the first two books, which were very good.


    What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

    Will Pattson did a great job on the performance.


    Was Blue Lily, Lily Blue worth the listening time?

    It was ok, I usually love all her books, this was my least favorite.

    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    If you could sum up A Storm of Swords in three words, what would they be?

    Great continuing story, so much going on and always going in a different direction than you think the story is going to go.
