I'll preface my review by saying I haven't read the rest of the series yet, but I'll be purchasing book two right after I submit this review.

Donaldson before, see Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, you'll know he doesn't shy away from uncomfortable topics. Rape, physical and mental torment, and questioning the grey area sanity are all things he exposes the reader to and this "short" novel contains them all.
You won't feel comfortable listening to portions of this book but I do think you will come to the same conclusion I have. If this book's quality is indicative of the series to come I think you're going to be in for a great ride.
Scott Brick's narration as always was great, no complaints there.
This series was Donaldson's best work, even better than the Covenant series. 5 stars is not enough to rate this excellent story. I would highly recomm..Show More »end not only this book but the entire series. The book was so good that I did an all-nighter because I COULD NOT STOP LISTENING.
