loved it. characters came to life. action...adventure...suspense...romance.... and edge of your seat can't wait to continue storyline. don't want to turn the book off. characters draw you into their lives and you can feel their emotions as if they were your own. the story is not predictable... if you think it is going to go one way it goes off on a different tangent. there is never a dull moment.

I haven't listened to many books. I found this narrator was easy on the ears. he brought the characters to life and personified their personalities. he got you used to what each character sounded like then built on that premise. using their voices to quote them instead of this person said this and that person said something else. he didn't just read words. he helped bring the book to life. some other narrators read the book word for word..... (Peter said "I am going to the fair" "I will join you at the fair later" responded Gail.)
this narrator would use 2 distinctly voices for the 2 characters. other narrators would read it as written. it is a surprisingly enjoyable difference.

I would recommend this book as a must read. it made me want to read book 1 and book 3 of the series.

I was given a copy of this book in audio format by the author in exchange for an honest review.
