If you could sum up The Age of Treachery in three words, what would they be?

Gavin Scott delivers an intriguing mystery which unfolds in beautifully written and detailed prose. Engaging characters are skillfully woven into the background of post-war England, mystery and Oxford politics. The protagonist, Duncan Forrester, is a likable hero with an unwavering sense of moral values. The type characters readers will enjoy following.

"The Age of Treachery is bound to have great appeal to lovers of literary and historical fiction.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Although I am not a science fiction reader, I found this an amazing story with characters and emotions we can all relate to--even the aliens. The production brought you into the action from the creaks of a floor board to the mist of a crowd.

What other book might you compare Earth's Ultimate Conflict: A Gray Guardians Series to and why?

Since I read very little science fiction, I am unable to make a comparison. However, for those who are drawn to the conflicting emotions of motherhood, Kathy Porter's well developed scenes will draw you in.

What does Peter Jude Ricciardi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Peter has an excellent voice for narration. He also did a phenomenal job of creating voices for the various characters and the sound effects brought you into the story in a movie like way.

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

The strong pull of Ellen between going with her hybrid children or staying with her husband and human child was compelling. The fate of aliens who had rediscovered their human-like emotions and were to become outcasts was heartbreaking.

Any additional comments?

The characters were believable, even when their situations were not. Porter was able to suspend, reader disbelieve and create an enjoyable story with many characters to root for.
