An introduction into a different world

Chapman creates an interesting world for her first book. The main character is, thankfully, not so jaded or tired of living in a bleak frontier town unlike most stories of this kind. She is tough, and brave, with a softer side, but can handle herself well. Her perspective on "visitors" is something pretty neat for an NPC. Andrea Parsneau is great as the narrator. She manages to do the male voices very well, most ladies cannot achieve this to her her level, and her words flow like water in a mountain brook. A good set up for the rest of the series. I have to find out what happened with the Hog!

Oops! Somehow I overlooked reviewing this book!

O.K. I have read this and the first follow-up book in the series. Book 1 lays out a very fine world and occupants of this world. The lead character is a very strong women who has "bite". There is a little off-color language, so I'd say a reader would need to be a 15 year old. I can recommend this series, and I'm looking forward to book 3. Now for the obligatory: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I’m shocked !!!!!

Man this is not me, I don’t give 5 stars but this one totally deserved it, I’m amazed at this creation, it’s totally beautiful and the narration is perfection ( great story and great performance ), I want more so much more, this must be continued as an Audio series !
There is so much more that needed to be said, that I want to say but I just can’t find the words.
Get this one is my advice to all, you won’t regret it I promise !!!!!!

Absolutely Brilliant! A fabulous Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Desert Runner to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print edition, but I can say that Andrea Parsneau did a fabulous job on the naration.

What did you like best about this story?

Considering the rather short length of this story the characters are fully developed and realised brilliantly.

What about Andrea Parsneau’s performance did you like?

Andrea Parsneau's performance can not be faulted, she breathed even more life into these already vivid characters.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Get in, buckle up, and hold on!

Any additional comments?

This was a brilliant book. The game world is unique and interesting and full of possibilities I can not wait to read more.
