    I'm an avid reader and writer who is brand new to the audiobook scene, and so far... I love it.

    "I was riveted!"

    I really enjoyed this sequel! So worth a listen! The characters grew and flourished in this book! Start with The Summoner and hold on for the ride!

    "Very good story."

    I enjoyed the story. Interesting characters with a bit of humor to avoid too much darkness.
    The narrator did an excellent bringing the story to life.

    "As the saga continues..."
    What did you like best about The Blood King? What did you like least?

    I like that Tris and his group of friends are slowly growing into their skills as they bond together as a group. The story has a good pace with action as well as story and character development.


    What other book might you compare The Blood King to and why?

    The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. It follows the same type of storyline. The main character is wronged and leads a group of friends to rise up and crush the ones that are abusing them. Plus, the main character is coming into his powers like Tris.


    What does Peter Ganim and Gail Z. Martin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They are able to bring depth to all of the players in the story that I wouldn't have been able to do had I read the book.


    Was The Blood King worth the listening time?

    Yes!

    "Great book, Author lacks creativity"

    This book is a sequel to THE SUMMONER.

    The book itself keeps you intriged for the most part, however, you can skip some entire chapters without missing anything. The book seems to add chapters for clarification, but the author gets side-tracked frequently.

    4/5 for a successful sequel but it continues in the same vain as the first book to the point of repetition.

    "Such A Shame :-(("
    Would you try another book written by Gail Z. Martin or narrated by Gail Z. Martin and Peter Ganim ?

    I have loved these books, ever since they were first published. I really looked forward to listening to these books. It is such a shame that the narrator did such a poor job of telling the stories. I still love the books, but I doubt I'll listen to another book narrated by Peter Ganim.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jonmarc Vahanion is my favorite character. I love his irreverent attitude to just about everything.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could have been so much better if it had been narrated by someone else, someone who could read the dialogue with more feeling. It sounded very flat, and sometimes sounded ridiculous.


    Do you think The Blood King needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I know that there is a follow up story, and I also know that unfortunately it is narrated by Peter Ganim, which means it will not be narrated as well as it deserves to be.


    Any additional comments?

    I could wish that these books had been narrated by someone else. I still love the books, and will still enjoy reading them, in printed format.
