    "interesting but too long."

    the narrator was excellent. I liked the book but the end was very predictable. the story went on far too long and in too much detail.

    "Sequel Not To Be Missed!"

    This continues the wonderful and inspiring story begun with Voice in the Wind. Even if you missed the first book of the trilogy, the author lets you know the most essential things - but, please do yourself a favor and go back and listen to the first book also.
    I just can't say enough good things about this whole trilogy and how it is both entertaining and inspiring. The author's historical research was impeccable and her spiritual insights are wonderful.

    Story
    "Heart wrenching and miraculous"
    Where does An Echo in the Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audible books I have heard. The Mark of the Lion series is amazing. Richard Ferrone brought the characters to life and touched my soul. I recommend this series to everyone, but especially to women because of the romance.


    What other book might you compare An Echo in the Darkness to and why?

    Centurion by L.D. Alford


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Richard Ferrone is amazing with the many voices and emotions that he presented. I felt like I personally knew the characters and at times it felt like they were talking to me.


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

    I primarily listened to it while driving to and from work and when I went to lunch. My drive time is about 20-30 minutes. Because of the book, I looked forward to the drive.

    "Perfect"

    Beautiful performance and a beautiful story. One feels as if one is present in all of it. It is a powerful story of love and redemption in the midst of great evil and depravity. Gods message of truth is so clear in it throughout the story. If you have not listened to or read it I suggest you do. It will change and encourage you in light of the knowledge of the love of Christ.

    "Excellent writing and characters!"

    Francine Rivers does an incredible job of applying the Gospel to real-life in her stories. Her characters are complex and easy to relate to. Their motives, words, and actions reflect the worst and the best of humanity, and I find a little bit of myself in each character.
    While listening to this book, I felt closer to God
    and was reminded of the importance of striving to stay close and grow closer.
