Great plot, story, characters and narration. The story of 1906 Eudora was amazing. The use of a historical figure in President Theodore Roosevelt was brilliant. The characters of Ben Corbett, The Crosses (Abraham, Moody. Hiram and Ricky) were great even the supporting and minor characters.

The narration brought the story and scene to life vividly. Great job.

I recommend this book it was great. Read or listen to it and judge for yourself. Keep your mind open.

The book was fast paced...too fast. It seemed like so much was going on that by the time I realized it, it was over. I did like the character of Sasha and she was definitely a sheep surrounded by wolves all out to do her harm from Terrence, Paris, and even Norman.

I doubt I will get part two of this...if there is one and I kind of hope not.

Dontay Walker had it rough growing up in the projects with a drug-addicted mother who forced him to become a man at the young age of 15. His father was a rolling stone, having multiple children with many women. Dontay always fought for his father's attention - until taking his spot became more important than gaining his love. Now, at the age of 30, Don is the leader of one of the most successful and most feared drug organizations in the city of Philadelphia.

I had no real expectations but I did expect a good performance. The performance had pauses and the reader's swallowing was audible.. the voice of Desire struck my ear as being too high pitched. The story itself did not grip me. characters were introduced so quickly that I had to rewind to find out where they came in, who they were and how they fit in with the story.
