I think the story was a good story; however, only the very last part of the book actually took us back to where book four left off. I do not feel that it went very well with the other books in the series - almost like runoff series from a popular televison show. I feel that the first part of this book was 24 hours of filler with only the last 4+ hours actually relating to the story I had been waiting for. Kristen Britain is a fabulous writer - I just feel this book really didn't relate very well to the first four books. Ellen Archer is as always, a fantastic narrator!
I believe Susan Hill is able to draw the reader in with what she writes and Steven Pacey gives it life. As an author she is not afraid of topics often left out for fear of controversy, such as rape, death and dying, etc. I also love the way she doesn't feel obligated to close her books with happy endings for everyone involved, life just doesn't work that way.
I would love to write something done; however, for two reasons I am unable, 1) I have several memorable moments, and 2) I don't want to give any of the story away - I feel it is that good!
I could listen to Steven Pacey speak for hours! His narration of the Simon series is perfect!
I am sure the story is really good; however, I stopped listening because the narrator's style of reading is almost continuous; seemingly without pauses for long periods of time. It is hard to reflect on the story or separate characters in my mind when a story is narrated this way.

I am going to buy this series in hardback.
No - not really. I have read many fantasy novels that have kept me enthralled and not able the put the book down; however, this book's endless dialogue on the main character's life at the university helped lose my interest. I have stopped reading this series.
I do not feel that Bronson Pinchot is very excited in his narration. His unenthusiastic narration made me stop listening - left a lot to be desired.
Not if it is like this one.
