  • The Warrior's Path: The Sacketts, Book 3

    Filled with exciting tales of the frontier, the chronicle of the Sackett family is perhaps the crowning achievement of one of our greatest storytellers. In The Warrior's Path, L'Amour tells the story of Yance and Kin Sackett, two brothers who are the last hope of a young woman who faces a fate worse than death.

    Overall

    This is another good Lamour book. The narrator is the same from book one and two. He does a good job with the different characters. I was afraid that I would be tired of the story line after the first two books, but that was not the case. This book was just as good and kept my attention.

    If you like the first three Sackett books you might also like books by G.A. Henty ("In the Reign of Terror" is a good one to start with or "The Cat of Bubastes".). Lots of history and adventure that's good for all ages.

    On Jericho Phillips' floating brothel, sex slaves are forced to endure unspeakable acts. Now one such soul, 13-year-old Fig, is found with his throat cut, his tortured body tossed into the river. Commander William Monk of the River Police swears that Phillips will hang for this abomination. But the miscreant is as wily as he is monstrous, and his wealthy clients seem far beyond the reach of the law.

    Story

    I have listened to other books by Anne Perry and narrated by another (a female - who did the first three in the William Monk series). I will NOT listen to another narrated by David Colacci. I will purchase print editions of other Anne Perry books in this series rather than listen to this narrator. He is absolutely horrible. I was able to suffer through it in order to find out the ending, but, my word, this guy is bad. He is terrible at the British accent and every word seems contrived. If you listened to the earlier books by the female narrator, you will HATE this guy.

    Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now, with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious work yet.

    cwdunn says: "Thanks for updating the Cussler files on Audible!"
    "Ok but a little tiresome"
    Overall

    This book was ok but needed some of the details edited out. I found myself tuning out the reader many times or fast forwarding to some action. Definitely predictable as are all Clive Cussler books I've read.

    A Man Called Trent opens on nester Dick Moffitt lying dead where he was killed by King Bill Hale's riders. His son Jack and adopted daughter Sally, who witnessed the murder, go for safety to a cabin owned by a man called "Trent", an alias for Kilkenny, who is seeking to escape his reputation as a gunfighter.

    "Bad Narrator"
    Overall

    Louis L'Amour is great, but the narrator of this particular book is terrible. I'd definitely look for another L'Amour before this one.

    A shot rang out. The Arabs surged forward under a savage fusillade of heavy fire. Nearer and nearer they came, shouting with hate and blood-lust. Geste rushed up and down his side of the roof, pausing only long enough to load his rifle and fire into the shrieking mob below, hoping to trick the Arabs into believing the fort was heavily manned.

    Loren D. says: "Definitely a classic."
    "Serious & Funny"
    Overall

    This was a great book! Serious at times but also funny at times. It was a little slow at first, but if you will persevere for a little while you will be hooked. This particular narrator does an excellent job with the different voices and accents, especially the two Americans who show up.

    When 16-year-old Angus Campbell finds himself orphaned and his life at risk, he leaves Tabriz and makes his way to Teheran to seek employment with the British ambassador there. His knowledge of Persian, Arabic, Armenian, Kurdish, and Pushtoo secures him a post as a secretary for Mr. M'Neill.

    Overall

    This one was a hard one to get through. The narrator does a good job but the content is so detailed and tedious that I had to force myself to finish. The audiofiles are messed up in two places also. I would NOT recommend this book unless you really really like military history and particularly military history in Afganistan, persia, and the area.

    An ok listen. This book wasn't quite as good as the first Sackett books.

    Son of a feared fighting man, Barnabas Sackett inherited his father's fiery temper, sense of justice and warrior skills. Declared an outlaw in his native England, Barnabas set his daring sights on the opportunity of the New World. The ruthless piracy of the open seas and the unknown dangers of the savage American wilderness lay before him. And so did the thrill of discovery and the chance to establish a bold new future if he survived.

    This book is full of action and adventure. Very interesting for all ages. Those who liked this book might also like books by G. A. Henty.
