This was the second listening, and it still was fresh and spellbinding. 1 star off on performance as the narrator tended to use the child voice for every character. 1 star off on the story as it would present pieces out of order then back-up multiple times to cover what had happened from different character perspective, instead of weaving the perspectives chronologically.
I think this may be the best book so far in this series. Strong characters, strong plot, and great narration made for a wonderful listening experience.
