    Barbara Holloway has a reputation for taking on the toughest cases - and winning them. But this time she's up against an unbeatable opponent - her father, the lawyer who taught her all she knows.

    Reed says: "Better than the first"
    "Absolutely terrific"
    Overall

    This was a wonderful story! I had never read this author before and am thrilled to find she has written several books --- all of which I intend to read as fast as membership allows! This is a fast-paced story but still offers good character development. Don't miss this one.

    In this prequel to The Sword of Shannara, in which many details of the Four Lands' history are revealed, Druids, horrified by the misuse of magic, have eschewed it in favor of science. But Bremen the Druid studies magic, and becomes an outcast on its account. Bremen discovers that an invincible army of trolls are fast conquering all that lay to their south. Before them come the Nazgul-like Skull Bearers, disfigured and transformed Druids who have fallen prey to the dark arts.

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

    Wrong age bracket for me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Terry Brooks again?

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Unknown


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

    N/a


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure this appeals to a great many readers. Wish I had run across it in my teens, not my 60's!

    New York Times best-selling author Stephen Hunter is back with another breakneck thriller, in which ex-Marine sniper, Ray Kruz, must outwit a group of murderous Somali terrorists who’ve laid siege to the Mall of America. Recently retired marine sergeant Ray Kruz has been talked into a mall trip by his fiancé, the beautiful Molly Chan. For Ray, Molly represents a way to reconnect with normal life, something his 20 years in the service and five tours in two combat zones have prevented.

    Jean says: "Another Action packed story from Hunter"
    "Couldn't stand this."

    Would you try another book from Stephen Hunter and/or Phil Gigante?

    Disliked this from the first words! I just didn't click with this narrator. Found him melodramatic and juvenile. Tried to focus just on the written word, but that didn't help either! Thought I might try the Kindle/WhisperSync version and looked at reviews on Kindle. Very poor ratings. Will trade this one back in! Ugh!
