    They kill without mercy. Disappear without trace. They are The Two. And now the stakes are raised once more for Detective January David. 5 lie dead, brutally murdered - the first taken on the night of Halloween and as autumn bleeds into winter more ritualistic murders are discovered. January must battle his demons, for in his mind lies the clue to stopping a ruthless murderer. But his worst nightmares have literally come true when he discovers there's not one, but two twisted killers on the loose.

    What could Will Carver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Tell the story in a more understandable way so that it could be followed.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration was clear and entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    At multiple points while listening to this book I thought someone had put chapters together in the wrong order. The book/plot was very convoluted and confusing. I continued to listen to all of it to try to understand what they had done wrong. At the end I was convinced it wasn't their problem, it was the author's. Interesting idea but very poorly constructed!

    What made the experience of listening to The Desert Spear the most enjoyable?

    Although this volume doesn't exactly pick up where the previous one left off, the author does connect the dots in a most enjoyable and fulfilling way. The extra history and background provided here enhances the story greatly.


    Which character – as performed by Pete Bradbury – was your favorite?

    The narrator does a fantastic job portraying all the characters and making them distinguishable and real in their own right. An excellent narration that makes the book that much more enjoyable to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward expectantly to the next volume!

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    Orson Scott Card does a masterful job of storytelling and blending our world and his magical world of Mithermages. The development of the characters is both full and enticing as we see the different worlds from each perspective. The plot moves at just the irght pace without leaving us gasping for breath (except in anticipation) or bogging down in some moralizing quagmire. The magic system is artfully crafted and consistent without being so complex we can't grasp it or so predictable we can see what will happen before it takes place. It is hard to turn off and I was reluctant for it to end and can't wait for the next volume! The dual narrators helps keep the different settings from being confusing and both bring the story to life in their own way. This is a definte must listen!!

    Four years ago, assassin Court Gentry was betrayed by his handlers in the CIA. Now, an old comrade returns to haunt him - and to force him on a mission against his will. With his ruthless employers on one side, his former friends on the other, and a doomed mission ahead, Court Gentry would kill to get out of this one alive.

    This is a great action packed story of espionage with a mix of political intrigue on the side. Very well done and very well narrated. It is a good sequel to the original story and Court is a wonderfully intricate character. The only problem I had with this book was the ending. I understand leaving an opening for the next book but this was just felt a little bit like it was left unfinished in an effort to lead to the next episode.
