Once again, Fiona Skye has done an excellent job of word crafting and weaving a tale that is both engaging and riveting. As listeners we are privy to seeing a different side of Riley and David as they grow and change roles in this book. There are a couple of new characters introduced which promise to be just as intriguing as the others.
The narrator, P. J. Morgan once again was excellent in her narration. Her narration was consistent with the first book. I loved her rhythm for reading and expressive voice. When I hear P. J. Morgan narrate I hear Riley – she has a knack for taking on the character and wearing her proudly.
There were no issues with production. I appreciate the clearness of the audio book.
