If you read or listened to Sabriel (the first of this series), I would heartily reccomend that you listen to this book as well. The story is not as fast paced as the first, but the characters come alive during the course of the story. Sam and Lirael are both flawed, but that is what makes them interesting and real.
The ending will certainly leave you wanted more, but luckily the next book in line is waiting for you to download. Ah...The information age when everything you want can be instantly granted for you. Happy Listening.
That's about all I got from this book. Anger. First, DeMille tells you either through the Lion or Corey at least every five minutes how angry they are. If I hear it once I heard at least 100 times how much they wanted to kill each other in this book. Talk about boring.
Second, I myself am angry because I had to listen to the entire book as I downloaded it for a 16 hour drive and couldn't download anything else.
Save your time and money. This book is boring, predictable, and not very creative.
Baldacci spins another good mystery here that, unless you have an extensive knowledge of serial killers, you could never figure out. This book is defintely worth the listen, but it does have some long drawn out narrative sections that are a little boring. Overall...Good for the ears.
