Yes. I have listened to the other titles in the series more than once and will probably listen to this one again also. This series was written for young adults and I discovered it as a children's librarian. One of my favorites.
I loved the way she did Kamaal's voice... and she can make the bad guys really bad. Her accent was delightful and also the way she used volume to add emphasis.
This book was compelling reading so there were times when I was afraid for the characters but I did not cry when a main character died even though it was sad.
I was drawn to this book because of the title of the first book which I did read (and it was recommended by a fellow children's librarian) The Blood Red Horse. I decided to listen to the next two books so I could do two things at once.... like travel on a plane or drive....or work in the kitchen!
