    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.

    Robert says: "Highly, highly, Highly Recommended"

    Story
    Where does The Scar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favourites so far. I loved the way the fantasy elements blended seamlessly into the background, with the story driven by strong characterisations and intense personal experiences.

    If I hadn't read that it had been translated I would have assumed it was written in English - admittedly by someone with the seriousness I associate with Russian literature.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scar?

    The key traumas experienced by the lead lead character were very vivid.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the gradual evolution of the relationship between the male and female leads. It was such a wonderful twist on the usual fantasy relationships.


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

    I just don't think this book would make a film, people wanting fantasy movies would expect a lot more action and less character interaction driving the plot.


    Any additional comments?

    I can heartily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy as a genre but is looking for a little more depth to the characters.
