    What did you love best about Divided Allegiance?

    Wonderful story Paksenarrion courage and natural ability to just understand what needs to be done in the face of danger. I would love just a tiny pinch of that.


    What other book might you compare Divided Allegiance to and why?

    The First Law series by Joe Abercrombie they seem to have the same personalities the only difference is that our hero had a family and he is haunted by them but then he starts a new life with a lot of adventure. I would to read the las book though...........AUDIO WHERE IS IT!!!!


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not listened to any other of her book but I will make sure to look for it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No I would not make a film they are always messed up and I can not beleave that any book writer would allow people to change anything just to make money. Look at Christopher Paolini's wonderful story they messed up his wonderful book with that so called movie and cut out the real story nothing made sense.

    The impossible has happened. The Lord Ruler is dead has been vanquished. But so too is Kelsier, the man who masterminded the triumph. The awesome task of rebuilding the world has been left to his protege Vin; a one-time street urchin, now the most powerful Mistborn in the land. Worryingly for her Vin has become the focus of a new religion, a development that leaves her intensely uneasy.

    Would you listen to Rapture again? Why?

    Yes

    Everybody loves a good love story and to think that a boy gone bad was because his love was not returned. Listen and you will know what I am talking about.

    I would not change anything. I would liked to have stayed for their wedding and a little look in the future.


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is a very good reader I love listening that way I cannot cheat and skip a couple of pages to get to the good parts. Now I can listen to them over again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    O yes. Me and my iPod spend lost of nights while my husband was sleeping listening in the dark kitchen because I cannot wait to hear what happens next.
