    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    I really liked this story. There were no lulls, just pure entertainment. Sad to see it end, but there is always the possibility for more.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Story

    Please read my review of "The Warded Man".... and double it!!!! When I told my husband the story gets even better, he couldn't believe me. The details regarding multiple cultures, lands, traditions... wonderful. Peter V. Brett is a guy I would LOVE to sit around a campfire with, an interesting mind. What more can you get from BUF?

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Warded Man again? Why?

    I would listen to this again. I actually started it over when I got my husband to read it. He is now on book two "The Desert Spear" & we are both awaiting "The Daylight War" with eager anticipation. This I must caps, I COULD NEVER GET MY HUSBAND TO STICK WITH JUST ONE BOOK I SUGGESTED... OR ANY FOR THAT MATTER. NOW HIS BEST FRIEND HAS READ IT TOO!!


    What about Pete Bradbury’s performance did you like?

    The narrator did a wonderful job expressing the emotions & personality of a variety of characters... kudos.


    Any additional comments?

    I must admit, I almost put the book down in the beginning.. Sorry Peter Brett. But after a short time, I had to keep going... HAD to. This story has the potential to be the next "Star Wars" mixed with "Indiana Jones"..... hopefully it will not get slaughtered into a 90 minute movie. This book alone needs the audiences time, don't get me started on book two. The worst part is I will be sincerely sad when the story finally closes.
