A great sequel

What made the experience of listening to An Echo in the Darkness the most enjoyable?

Believable character with good story arcs

What other book might you compare An Echo in the Darkness to and why?

The Gospel series by Jerry Jenkins. Similar setting and feel.

Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

Hadessa

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

Hadessa because of the believability of her faith expressed in her character arc.

Any additional comments?

The sequel is as good as the first one. The characters continue to act like real people, there is character growth, and there are good emotional peaks and payoffs. This time I noticed and enjoyed that some of the characters experienced events that occurred to characters in The Bible. No spoilers but Paul and Philemon stand out the most. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one. Final Grade - A

interesting and well written

although this book is based on the christian religion and I am not an advocate of discriminating relligions I found the book well written and interesting. despite the main character of Hadassa being a but over the top and annoying because of this. The writer has woven the characters and the storyline masterfully.

Faith building story of love and forgiveness!

Transports the listener to a long ago time when Christians were persecuted. One young girl's experiences lead her to face her fears and doubts and listen to God's direction. This story does not disappoint! A true love story on many levels!
