    Life should have been easier for Sonea, now that Regin ignored her and the rest of the novices treated her with wary respect, but she cannot forget what she witnessed in Akkarin's underground room, or his warning that Kyralia's ancient enemy is watching the Guild closely.

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

    The whole Black Magician's trilogy was a wonderful group of books. At the end of the series, it made me long for more. I found that Miss Trudi wrote another series with Sonea as a main character. I am interested in reading that. I am currently enjoying Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" series.


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

    Never underestimate someone with humble beginnings.

    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    Would you listen to Spider's Bite again? Why?

    Yes. I bought the book because it was on sale. Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. For this reason I usually use whisoersync and purchase the Kindle copy also, so I don't have to put it down.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spider's Bite?

    Assination in the Pork Pit.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Quarry scene.


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

    Very Much so.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    If you could sum up Allegiant in three words, what would they be?

    Why Change Style?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Allegiant?

    Over all the book was very good, and the conclusion to the series was great. My only complaint is why change your writing/Storytelling style in the third book. IMHO if you wanted to change styles use the changed style for a new series. Don't change horses in the middle of the stream. Other than this is was an awesome book and great conclusion to the series.

    "Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon. I'm Gin Blanco. You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I'm retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren't aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox."

    The book flowed and left me wanted more from Gin Blanco.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was an exciting continuance to the Gin Blanco Saga. The story flowed and kept me occupied. I have whispersync with tthe Kindle version and once I stopped listening, more than once I picked up my Kindle and continued reading. Very good. Can't wait to see what happens in book 3.
