    Sergey and Marina Dyachenko mix dramatic scenes with romance, action and wit, in a style both direct and lyrical. Written with a sure artistic hand, The Scar is the story of a man driven by his own feverish demons to find redemption and the woman who just might save him. Egert is a brash, confident member of the elite guards and an egotistical philanderer. But after he kills an innocent student in a duel, a mysterious man known as “The Wanderer” challenges Egert and slashes his face with his sword, leaving Egert with a scar that comes to symbolize his cowardice.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Scar again? Why?

    I would listen again if only to hear the narrator. You can get lost in the story with his talent.
    The story reads like an adult fable and fantasy adventure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scar?

    Egerts dual with Dynar(?). after which you can't decide if you are disgusted with him, pity him or are sympathetic to his story.


    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    he can really paint a picture of characters and situations with his inflections. he draws you into the story as if you were an eyewitness to the events.


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

    Just kept me listening, and entertained.

    Sarah Woolson has always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. The trouble is that, in 1880, everyone believes a woman belongs in the home, married and taking care of babies. Using her brains and a little bit of subterfuge, Sarah somehow manages to finagle her way into one of the city's most prestigious law firms, becoming an associate attorney and acquiring her very first client, a lovely young society matron accused of brutally stabbing to death her wealthy but abusive husband.

    Dawn says: "Delightful"

    What did you love best about Murder on Nob Hill?

    If you are tired of intense and complicated storylines this is an easy listen. Good introduction to a new character, with several other significant characters that can be developed in future books. As I said though, a light story.


    What aspect of Anna Fields’s performance would you have changed?

    Needs a more distinct voice for the various characters. Narrates as the main character well.

    When a band of backwoods hunters crash a corporate retreat in the wilderness, executives find themselves held hostage by men who will do anything to get the largest ransom in history. The corporate big shots hadn't wanted junior exec Jake Landry there. But now he's the only one who can save them.

    Overall

    A good enjoyable read with a likeable main character. Just long enough to keep the action going and wrap up with an acceptable finish. My first J Finder read, so I'll look for more.
