"[A] rich, character-driven series." (Library Journal)
No, because the violence is so mind bending. If such violence is needed to continue a series perhaps the series should end. Convoluted story line, repeating narration of horror perpetrated by children and adults. The narrator is excellent throughout. Find more books read by her.
Mixed. This book had too many story lines, too much twist. Ending was not so surprising to me if one listened carefully during the book.
Ms Rosenblat's voice is so capable of variance and expression. I always knew who was talking and what they meant. No need for she said, he said as other narrators say endlessly..
I'd rec'd the earlier books. But just like with the Bones series, the violence is so out of control to keep things 'new' that it is ridiculous and not something I want to hear.
