    "Wow"

    I tend to shy away from novels written by women; however, I wanted this book these books to go on and on. My wife recommended this after reading it, and I was totally cought up in the story and charactors. These books also reminded me of my own faith and motivated me to be stronger.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Echo in the Darkness?

    The theme of God's forgiveness permeates.


    Any additional comments?

    My husband could not make it through this series, but for us ladies ... Well, the characters are not realistic, but they are lovely. The author serves us well, because she creates characters that inspire.

    "I love this series. Excellent!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of An Echo in the Darkness to be better than the print version?

    yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Echo in the Darkness?

    There are several twists and turns that kept this story interesting.


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

    I loved Richard Ferrone's reading.


    Who was the most memorable character of An Echo in the Darkness and why?

    Marcus was the most interesting character. This entire book and it's characters are interesting because of its history and the similarity it has with our culture today.

    I can't wait to read (hear) the last book of the series. Francine Rivers is an excellent writter.

    Story
    "An Echo in the Darkness; Mark of the Lion, Book 2"
    Where does An Echo in the Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    An Echo in the Darkness, ranks very near the or at the top of the list of the audiobooks I've listened to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is very difficult to pick a favorite character, but I can tell you who my least favorite character is, Julie. She is selfish and very self serving.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To pick a favorite scene is also very difficult, the this book is a continuation of the lives of the first book, "A Voice in the Wind", several are early Christians, another wealthy family, in Rome, with slaves and a gladiator in the circus.


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

    One you stare either reading or listening to this book you want to continue, forgetting
    about the other things, you need to do.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book series, which I have recommended to many friends.

    "Loved the story, the female voices not so much"
