I very much enjoyed this story and some of the terrifying circumstances described. My daughter and I have listened to all three of the Audio Books and this book left me very concerned for the well being of my favorite characters (no spoiler's here). Suffice it to say that Oliver Potzch once again delivers a very satisfying story with your favorite characters and Grover Gardner has the most excellent voice acting. I highly recommend these series to anyone that enjoys mysteries and imagining what life must have been like in the 1600's for a Hangman and his family.
I struggled with the idea of listening to a story that parallels Ender's Game. Wouldn't that make this inferior by design? No is the honest answer. This book stands alone and perfectly compliments a book I love (Ender's Game). You get new insights into Bean, and also into Ender and others. You can now see Ender as others do (which is awesome) and you have a deep understanding of how Bean perceives the world around him and handles challenges.
All in all, I'm super thrilled by this book and look forward to the series of books that follow.
Go Bean, and Go Ender!!!
