REALLY enjoyed a story involving true Christian believers as the main characters. I deeply wish there were more audiobooks that fit that description: a story involving true Christian believers as the main characters. I don't mean just a pure romance. I'm a guy and would like it to involve other things - in addition to having a strong romantic theme. This one certainly fit that description. The suffering was a bit more of a challenge then I would have hoped for, but I enjoyed this audiobook quite a bit.
It's not a great story, it doesn't keep the reader/listener interested throughout.. I think the love story is cheesy, boring and doesn't amount to you feeling anything for the two characters...
Its a love at first sight book, that doesn't feel like love at first sight.
i think this book would have been better if there was multiple readers, mainly a female playing the female role.
it was ok, i mean every book good or bad has something that you can take from it.. i couldn't recommend it though, although there is a story in the book that is touching and probably the highlight of the book.. no spoilers here.
i can't say i was to excited about this book, the story just takes you through multiple war zones where you end up wondering what is the purpose of anything going on...
I love Christian fiction and cozy mysteries. I'm blind now, so I listen to all my books.
Memorable, engaging, suspenseful
There were several moments. One was the captivity of Z and Dean.
This was the first time I listened to him. He did an outstanding job, perfect for this book. I never tired or got bored listening to him.
The most moving moments for me was Z's ability to maintain her faith and not grow bitter through all she endured and witnessed. Her faith never faltered.
I love all the books written by this author. She does wonderful research and her books are realistic. Her words are so descriptive the listener is transported to the scene in the books. The narrator added an extra depth to a wonderful story. I also enjoyed the setting of this book. All the characters are memorable.
Good plot and character development. Good narration. No gratuitous sex and violence.
Pleasant voice and good timing.
Such a shame. Great author! Really great narrator! But such a horrific story. I wish books came with ratings. I never would have signed up for this violent ride.
The main character does too much wining and complaining about how unfair life is. Both main characters act like children with a crush ... does he/she feel the same, what if they do, what if they dont, how could they feel the same ...
The author asks us to "suspend our disbelief" but it's hard to suspend disbelief to the point that the Special Forces could be as clueless as the book portrays them and the mysterious character at the end could have been in two places at once as the story seems to imply. Maybe the next book in the series clears up the implication that a character was in two places at once but the story line and the shallow characters are not interesting enough to bother finding out.
This is my first book by Ronie Kendig. It started out a bit slow, but once it took off, it was really good. The foreign names got a bit confusing at times. This book is in 2 parts. The second part was definitely the best. I realize it is the first in a series, but I wish she had tied up a few more loose ends. If you enjoy military-type books, you will like this one.
