    Story
    "i can't wait for the third book!"
    If you could sum up The Reckoning in three words, what would they be?

    Change....anticipation...love


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was fascinating. The story moved in time, in different countries...a real mystery. A great love story. Unexpected things happening in the story.


    Have you listened to any of Laurel Lefkow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She does a good job with both 'The Taker' and 'The Reckoning'.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It surprised me more than once with the turns the story took; made me say "Aha!" Also made me tear up a time or two.


    Any additional comments?

    This author has done an admirable job in writing these books and I can't wait for the last book of the trilogy. These characters are mesmerizing.

    I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.
