    Rake. Rogue. Scoundrel. Each of these words has been used to describe Damien Largess, youngest prince of Cardenas, most frequently by his ridiculously somber eldest brother. Damien is perfectly content to spend his days drinking at the card tables, and his nights in the bed of his scheming mistress, especially since doing these things seems to vex his high-handed brother to no end. But when he steps into a glittering ballroom on the night of his twenty-fifth birthday, the roguish young prince's life will be forever changed.

    Gaele says: "Not to be missed is the narration - a true delight"
    "Wonderful historical romance"

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

    I liked this story much more than the others I have listened too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Elise Marion can weave a story and the narrator made all the characters that she created come to life for me. I listened to this while I was walking to help keep me occupied. All of the characters seemed like they were real people that you could run into while walking down the street. I had reservations about a male reading when there are so many female characters, but once I got into the book I didn't even notice that.


    Have you listened to any of P. J. Houry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to any of P.J. Houry's other performances, I enjoyed this one. The tone of voice and voice inflection made listening to this book enjoyable.


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

    If I could have listened to it all at one time I surely would have,


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to listening to the rest of this series of books, this was the first audio book that I really devoted myself to listening too. I had tried to listen to others but the narration just did not keep my interest.

    Would you listen to The Second Son again? Why?

    I would listen to The Second Son again. I got totally swept back into Cardenas listening to this second book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Serge in The Third Son, seeing so much of him and his love and devotion for Isabella in this book is so sweet! Being the Second Son Serge has resigned himself to the fact that the woman he loves, Isabella, is set to marry his oldest brother. After a tragic meeting on the road leaves Serge in a coma, he wakes to find that one brother is dead and the other is now king. This leaves his Isabella free for him to try and prove that he is the man for her,


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

    I had not listened to anything else narrated by Piers Gibbon, I liked the sound of his voice and the rhythm and pacing that the book was read in.


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

    One of the most heart breaking yet, heart warming stories that you will ever see,


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy this series by Elise Marion, and I cannot wait to listen to more of her books!
