"One of the top 10 storytellers in the world." (Los Angeles Times)
I read this book many years ago and got hooked on Archer's story telling. This is one of Archer's best works but this abridgement took way took much out. The relationship to Edward and her arch rival (Ralph Brooks) were too edited to get the true story.
This book was not as captivating as Kane & Abel. Seemed to have very little action and was rather predictable. The narrator was terrible, too. I don't think she read Kane and Abel because the way she portrayed the characters were way off.
I was disappointed in this. Too much recap from the previous book. I was more interested in the future than finding out what happens in the character's past. The author dwells at length on her backstory and given there is only 3 hours to go here, I was quite bored.
