I love this series. Excellent!

Would you consider the audio edition of An Echo in the Darkness to be better than the print version?

yes

What was one of the most memorable moments of An Echo in the Darkness?

There are several twists and turns that kept this story interesting.

Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I loved Richard Ferrone's reading.

Who was the most memorable character of An Echo in the Darkness and why?

Marcus was the most interesting character. This entire book and it's characters are interesting because of its history and the similarity it has with our culture today.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to read (hear) the last book of the series. Francine Rivers is an excellent writter.

Inspiration and Romance done to Perfection

This series is a winner. The narrator is a total pro, making both male and female voices believable. A true voice actor. This book is 2nd in the series and picks up where the first book ends, with our female lead lying torn apart by lions in the arena in Ephesus around 85A.D. and her love watching from the stands, horrified.
I can’t really say anything about the book without giving away major spoilers, but just know that it’s very twisty and you won’t be disappointed! But definitely read/listen to the first book in the series, A Voice In The Wind prior to this book. Otherwise the book will lose all emotional impact and probably not make any sense.

Incredible!

The books in this series depict one the most amazing stories ever written! Francine Rivers brings to life what it was really like post Christ’s resurrection! I have listened to these books many times and I never tire of them. The faith of this lovely Jewish slave inspires my faith every time I listen to them! They are a must-read for every christian!

I’ve got all the feels!!!!

I’m absolutely crushed that I’m done with the story of Marcus and Hadassa! A Voice in the Wind and An Echo in the Darkness tell such a heart wrenching story of love, hate, forgiveness and the pursuit of God.
My only complaint is the use of the word “sardonic”. I’ll be fine if I never have to hear that word again, honestly!
But truly, this book is a work of art! I laughed, I cried, I loved; I got intensely invested in this story. I’m at a great loss of what to read next for fear of it not being as wonderful as this!
