Publisher's Summary

Mark Taylor discovers first hand that no good deed goes unpunished when the old camera he found in an Afghanistan bazaar gives him more than great photos. It triggers dreams of disasters. Tragedies that happen exactly as he envisions them. He learns that not only can he see the future, he can change it.

His life takes a dark turn when his heroism becomes the subject of a newspaper article. The media attention and a harrowing encounter while saving a young woman, puts him in the sights of the ruthless cult leader who covets the secret to Mark's power.

Uncomfortable in the public spotlight, Mark suspects he's being tested by the force behind the camera's prophetic magic. Battling his own self-doubt, he must maintain the secret - or risk certain death.

Story is good but audible narration not so much

What made the experience of listening to March Into Hell the most enjoyable?

I have listened to the prequel and book 1 with a different narrator so it was a little disconcerting to hear a "new" voice for "Mark" in book 2 but I got use to it in the first chapter. What I didn't like were the sound effects that went along with the narration. It was weird and I haven't heard anything like it in the hundreds of books I have listened to previously. it makes it sound corny and is distracting from the content of the book. I like the story but I hope the future audibles for this series do not include the sound effects and I hope the original narrator, Daniel Penz, returns, I liked his voice better but that maybe because "he" was "Mark" in the first 2 books I listened to....

Would you be willing to try another one of Lee Alan’s performances?

Maybe in a different series.

Any additional comments?

Leave out the sound effects, they detract from the story.

Real Disappointment

The first book in this series was so enjoyable I thought I'd like this one too. Not so! The story was much less credible than the first. But the real killer of this book was the narration, I could hardly stand to listen at all. If I could give this narrator no stars, I would. This book was definitely not for me.

Painful Performance

First let me say that I love this series and thoroughly enjoy Mary McDonald's storytelling and imaginative characters. This is the second audible book from this series.
The performance had me searching for a hard copy so I wouldn't have to listen to the extreme vocal fry of the reader. I even had it playing at 1.25 speed! Add to that the ridiculous sound effects and dated porn music. I almost gave up.
Again, this is a great series but read the Kindle version.

Background noises and music ruined this book!

The contents noise and background music ruined this book for me. The characters / readers voice was not helping it out either.

Unable to finish this book only read 2.54 hours.

I rarely write reviews bot felt I needed to this time. The sound effects were appalling, the narrator was terrible and the story wasn’t one I enjoyed. The first book was ok although the torture aspect went on for far too long but I was prepared to buy the second book in the series. This book was not enjoyable at all thanks to the narrator and the ridiculous sound effects. I managed to listen to the first 2.5 hours but that was it. I will ask for my credit back. I won’t buy the next in this series especially if it’s narrator is Lee Allen. I enjoy a good thriller & have downloaded almost a thousand books but this was terrible. Don’t waste your money or your credit.

tough one for me

Ok, rarely write a review weather I love the book or not, but I had to in this case. it's kind of a two part set of comments. First is the story, same characters as the first book, same general premise , which I thought was a good first book...kind of a neat story, and as per usual, you kind of get used to the characters , you picture them, kind of feel like you know them. This is the big problem with book two in this series...and believe me, I am NOT someone that likes to criticize someones work or performance , who am I to do that ! BUT.....!!! The reader of the second book has an extremely super DEEP bass, baritone voice, SUPER DEEP, and my point of this is, it completely changes the characters in the book, I also did not care for the readers cadence , just awkward, 100% different from the reader of book one, I have really had to struggle to keep listening to this book. Also, they added a lot of sound effects to the story, again, at least to me......not well done, Just didn't work for me. Not being mean, just giving my opinion and I WILL check who the reader is for book three, if it's the same guy....I will be done with this series.

The narrator didn’t fit well with the story.

The sounds affects were silly and cheesy and took more away from the story. The deep voice and constant fluctuations in the narration made it difficult to follow along. I didn’t get past the 1st chapter and chose to read it instead it was that bad. I’m usually not picky, but this narration has way too much going on. The story sells itself, and leaves you on the edge often. The sound affects and fluctuations in the narrator’s voice didn’t match the story line and didn’t seem necessary. Sad I lost a credit over this.

Loved the first book ...

I enjoyed the first book and this story, but I find the music and dramatic sound effects distracting and unnecessary. The story needed no enhancement.

Terrible narration! Story is a disappointment

Would you be willing to try another one of Lee Alan’s performances?

Never

Any additional comments?

This book was such a disappointment after the first book. The narration was good in the first book and the story was interesting. This story is slow and I just couldn't finish it. The narration was irritating, it had sound effects and strange dramatic dialogue that reminded me of bad radio shows. I couldn't decide if this is a Christian book and if it is, the description needs to present it as such.

I'm not going to read the third book.

Is this narrator for real?!!

This is unlistenable. I'll just read it myself.
Managed one minute before asking for refund. Book one is great by the way.
