    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.

    This is in my top 5 and if I really think about all the books I have listened to it is #2 for sure!


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

    The encounter with the wanderer at dawn and the outcome from that meeting...

    The knife throwing scene in the beginning of the book. There are many more.

    What scars you.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is so well written and Jonathan Davis deliverers each line with perfection. You will not fall asleep! The writers are very creative how they describe the scenes. I wish they would bring their other books to the US and to Audible. I want more!

    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.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A new story would have made it a 4 or 5 star. It was weak. I don't even know what to say.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm getting out of the teen drama books and going on to something more mature.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Emma reads the other 2 books before this and she is okay. Aaron never heard him before and he was okay but not when he is reading for a girl.


    What character would you cut from Allegiant?

    Tris' brother.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to agree with others. Skip this book and make up your own ending. It will be better than this. Sorry. I was excited to see this coming to the big screen but not so much now.
