Rafe Savaryn is happy. He's in Venice, writing a novel on the Renaissance, enjoying being alone after a devastating divorce. He's trying to answer the question: what makes societies fail? Then a stunningly beautiful woman walks into his life and leads him on a horrifying journey back to the Dark Ages, where the answer to his question is revealed. He is shocked as he must make a choice no one should have to make. I won't give away any more of the plot, but I will say, "Fasten your seat belt! It's a roller-coaster ride of history, suspense, and thrills!" The answer to the question is right in front of you.

I thought the characters in Currency & Sugar were interesting, until I met Rafe. With a quick turn of events in his life. I was wrapped up in suspense until the end. Wood writes another great thriller.
The novel has a quick turn of events and abundant suspense.
Fortunately I had a long weekend to listen to the book.
Wood is a rising star.
Yes, the historical detail is so rich and colorful. Obviously, the author has experienced many of the settings in the novel firsthand, and it shows in his writing.
Jumping all over the globe, the author takes the reader on a wonderful journey through many lands, cultures and traditions.
It's interesting that he does so many voices and accents. He does carry it off well. As they say, you are participating in the "willing suspension of disbelief."
I loved his hanging out in Venice. I have visited it many times, and loved it more each time. It allowed me the opportunity to daydream about living there perhaps some day, even for a short while.
If you like historical novels, this one is for you. It's thrilling, chilling and of course, has an amazing ending- which I won't spoil!
I have read Currency, Sugar, now Delta. Can't wait for Motherland!!! Good Job L. Todd Wood!.
Yes, I would highly recommend this book to my friends. I travel and Audible is how I take my library with me.
Rafe Savaryn. Rafe is on a fast-paced journey to find the answer to his question.
Listened to this book in 3 days in the air and travel by rail. Christensen is very easy to listen to.
Rafe comes so close to the answer to the question he pursues, and performs an "about face"... off on an adventure.
Rafe's adventures take the reader across Europe, Russia and the USA. The story has a terrific ending... well, I cannot give that away. Download the novel and listen to it for yourself! We are aware of a lot of changes happening in the world today. One person can make a difference.
First let me say, obviously the previous review is a TROLL, attempting to discredit this authors work and message, because obviously it pissed him off. Yes, Wood is a conservative author but the book is fantastic-I couldn't stop listening. The Seattle, WA location gives the previous reviewer away. Well, I listen to most of my books in the car commuting so yes I enjoyed the audio version.
IF YOU LIKE PAGE TURNERS, THIS IS IT!
This book is unique-I have never read or listened to anything like it before. There are so many twists and turns, it just wore me out. Stayed up to 3am to finish. I love books like that, when you are put into the story and feel as if you are living it. Bravo!
The old man at the end - most definitely my favorite.
I almost did so, so yes!
Don't listen to the trolls - enjoy the book!
New headphones for Christmas 2011. The sound is so much better than before!
Food for thought that millions are starving for and simply don't know it. Entertaining. A very good ending for patriots
Not downloading it, let alone wasting my time listening to it. A silly concept, poorly executed and a weird conclusion.
Taken a different career path.
Not even Daniels, Hill or Brick could save this from the trash heap. Mark has very little intonation, and this is a shabby performance even by his standards.
Disappointed in myself for wasting these hours of my remaining life.
Be wary. The author gets on a high philosophical horse at the end of this novel, which is rather off putting considering the poor content in the first 3/4. All around, just an awful offering and definitely NOT worth consideration.
