    Two hundred years after the Forbidding was broken, Santhenar is locked in war with the lyrinx - intelligent, winged predators who will do anything to gain their own world. Despite the development of battle clankers and mastery of the crystals that power them, humanity is losing. Tiaan, a lonely crystal worker in a clanker manufactory, is experimenting with an entirely new kind of crystal when she begins to have extraordinary visions.

    Craig G. Clark says: "About As Satisfying as Coitus Interruptus"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If they are huge into fantasy like me, yes, if not no.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The way the government is portrayed gives this book a 1984 feel. The least interesting part for ME is the In-depth mechanical aspect.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Grant Cartwright?

    If he narrates a book I'm interested in, but I wouldn't search him out.


    Was Geomancer: Well of Echoes, Book 1 worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book had some really great ideas and intrigued me just enough to continue the series.

    This time last year, I could go weeks without seeing another mage. In mage society I was an unknown and, all in all, that was how I liked it. It’s hard to say what changed. Whatever it was, I got involved in the magical world again and started getting myself a reputation.

    Cliff says: "Great book. Action packed and fun."
    "Predictable but worth the read."

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

    Creepy, fun, and predictable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Benedict Jacka? Why or why not?

    Yes! Though the story is predictable, the atmosphere Jacka created was very creepy! I'm really starting to enjoy the Alex Verus series.


    Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He performed the first two Verus books and I hope that he does the rest.


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

    If only I had the time, at around ten hours this book is constantly moving and again it has that creepy factor that sucks you in.


    Any additional comments?

    This book fits into the series perfectly and I'm very excited to start book four.
