Publisher's Summary

"You're part samodiva. I knew that when I met you. It's in your blood to be distracted by beauty...and pleasure." He turned to face her, taking in every sensuous curve of her female form. "You seem to have forgotten that it's in my blood as well. Whatever shall I do to remind you?"

Scandal. Blackmail. Obsession. It's just another day if you're a Marinossian. When Annika disappears without a trace, Talvi launches the hunt for his most infuriating rival yet. His only clues are from a government he's increasingly at odds with. In exchange for access to their resources, he does the unthinkable and reveals Annika's true nature. Time is short, but the list of names Talvi can trust keeps getting shorter. Back home at the family's country estate, his brother Finn is blindsided when the missing redhead turns up injured with no recollection of how she arrived. While his mother tends to her physical wounds, Finn's given the task of restoring her memory...and he just can't resist showing her his version of the truth. But playing mind games is like playing roulette - and someone's luck is about to run out.

    "This Book!!!! Wow!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Scarlet Tanager to be better than the print version?

    I read this book first, then listened to it... I usually get more out of a book when I listen to it... The story seems to come alive in audio format.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scarlet Tanager?

    The most memorable part of course is the ending....


    What about Nick Cracknell’s performance did you like?

    Love the voices, they suck you in and make you feel like you are there...


    Any additional comments?

    This book seems like it will be a turning point for these characters.. whether good or bad we will have to wait and see.... But things are definitely changing for these characters.

    "Completely amazing"

    I love how Emigh writes her and her details are amazing without being overbearing. There's so much going on in this story, but its not over-whelming. I love listening to Nick as he reads. There is so much emotion and growing and changing throughout the story I can never decide what I like best or even if there is anything to not like. I'm blown away by how awesome this series is so far and can't wait to continue on.

    "Not sure I want to continue this series"

    This was my least favorite of the three books. Not sure if I will read the next book. I like the narrator but I'm in agreement with our lead character in that something's are better left unknown.

    "I didnt see that comming!!"
    Where does The Scarlet Tanager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think this is the best book in the Annika Brisby series. It is if those first two books build to this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scarlet Tanager?

    I cant say much about it, but the end of the book.


    What about Nick Cracknell’s performance did you like?

    I was very happy to hear that Emigh Cannaday used the same narrater as she use for the first book (The flame and the arrow) in 'the Annika Brisbey' series.The narrater, Nick Cracknell has a nice voice. He is easy to listen to. Sometimes a bit monotome, but certainly very clear. His pronounciation is very good. The sound quality is also good. it was nice and clear. Nick Cracknell's acting skills brought the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Annika went dancing in the village, also when Annika and Talvi got together again and my more.


    Any additional comments?

    ** spoiler alert ** This review is based on an audiobook that I received. It is an honest review and the complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.This book started off with deception, action, and a sinister villain. It then went for a ride into the realm of appalling. Honestly, poor Annika! Then with another twist to the story, past actions comes back to haunt Finn and confuse Annika. This book was truly wonderful. This story is told primarily from the perspective of Finn. Annika is a huge part of this book but suffering from memory loss she is fighting her way to the truth.Talvi’s older brother and he has always been a big brother to him even if he did not condone his actions, until Annika. Throughout the series Finn has found himself torn between his feelings for Annika. In this book we are seeing a whole new Finn. He is obsessive and has become very unhealthy and dysfunctional.In my previous reviews I have always felt that Annika needed to grow up a little and I am really wowed by her development in this story. Some may argue this point due to her behavior, but she had very few memories that were clear and she was being influenced by Finn who had some very strong feelings on the subject of her marriage to Talvi.I however felt that Annika was trying to figure out everything. Especially her marriage to Talvi had been something that was not filled with joy and wonder. They actually had very little time together and their relationship started off on the wrong foot. When they did finally have a break-through she was ripped away in the worst way possible. I feel that by the end of this story that an entirely new Annika had emerged.I kinda missed Talvi in this book. Especially beause he did his damnest to find wife.In the end it turned out to be ok. I love what occurred when Talvi and Annika were brought together again. It was really wonderful, touching, and made my heart soar. But then…..The last chapter happened and I was left in a wretched state of disbelief. Disbelief at what happened between the brothers and I was absolutely with Talvi as he screamed: “No! No! NO! This isn’t HAPPENING!”Yep, right there with you brother. I am still reeling from what occurred and all I can say is “please say it isn’t so!” Wondrous addition to the series! I highly recommend.I hope I dont have to wait very long for the next book in the series. I think that something happened in the end, but im not sure if im right. I hope I am.I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "A little darker and more sensual than before"

    First of all, please note: For the proper enjoyment of this book, readers /listeners please read/listen to the previous two books first. This story picks up where the previous book ended.

    That said, very little actually happens in this story. The bulk of it is dedciated to addressing a few unresolved issues from the earlier books as well as leading us teasingly through the murkiness of Annika and Talvi's relationship. There are changes for other key characters in the story as well and the stage is carefully set for something more. Unlike the previous books, this book is more sensual and darker. It toys with addiction, torture, mind-games, PTSD as well as defining and unravelling the relationships between the various characters. The true nature of certain characters are better revealed while others display unexpected facets making the story more complex. To be honest, I am still not 100% sure if I am on Team Finn or Tean Talvi when it comes to Annika.

    More than the plot of this book, the complex nature of the characters are what adds depth to the overall story. And the ending... oh my! I am hopeful that this will lead to more adventures for the Marinossian. Perhaps the events in this book will give Annika the experience to handle the challenges of being a member of this somewhat notorious family.

    For the most part, I enjoyed the book. I remain committed to the series. Seriously, cannot wait for the next instalment.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Must Read!"
    Would you listen to The Scarlet Tanager again? Why?

    I listened to this story in one go and at over 14 hours that is a testament to how amazing it is. Each of the books in the series gets more gripping and pulls me in more and more. Book 3 started very differently from the first 2, with an urgency that pulled me straight in and shut out everything else. I had forgotten how charismatic Nick's voice is and how well suited he is to narrate this story.
    The whole of this book is centered very much on the families emotions, good, selfish, misguided and obsession. Where this all leads is why I listened for 14 hours straight. No spoilers from me, this is a book you just have to listen to, if you have listened to the first 2 I can't imagine you will be able to resist the lure of it.
    I know I have just finished it but I just have to listen to it again it is just that good, and that is definitely something I do not say lightly.
