    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
    What would have made The Scar better?

    I would have enjoyed seeing more strength coming from the main character in fighting the curse of "cowardice." I still have ugly thoughts of the scene involving a stagecoach & robbers. The authors worked so very hard at making the character look like a complete jerk in the very beginning & then such a feeble excuse of human flesh throughout the rest of the book I had a hard time getting the love story. When I read a love story in fantasy & truly enjoy it, it requires that I fall a little in love with the characters myself to make it real. In this case I just couldn't see how any woman (save those missing some marbles) could find anything remarkable or loveable in the main character. Yeah he was a good looking guy (throughout the book this is really obvious) but otherwise he was such a jellyfish!!


    What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the character more human.. less like an insect.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Jonathan Davis did an excellent job narrating the story. I find no fault with his work.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the idea behind the story which is what brought me to the book. I thought if written differently I could have really enjoyed it.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the first part 7 hrs & then 3/4's of the 2nd part before I gave up on the book. The last straw was when the heroin got put in prison & tortured & our gallant knight would do nothing to help her for fear bringing the torture down on himself. This is the initial impression.. I have no idea what he eventually did if anything because I couldn't stand to listen to it anymore.
