Touching prequel that will leave you wondering...

STORY- The Sparrow is the second of three prequels to Mott's book "The Returned." People all over the world are returning from the dead -- yes, returning, seemingly normal and unharmed, not zombies. This is the touching story of a young girl who returns. It's very short and enjoyable. The only problem is that it's a prequel, so if you want to find out where these people are coming from and why, you gotta buy the book. Nevertheless, it was free and I enjoyed the 40 minutes I spent listening to it.

NARRATOR - Good job, nothing special.

OVERALL - I think it's worth the time and the free download whether you plan to buy "The Returned" or not.

- AudioAddict "I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!"

interesting

this is the second prequel I've read from this series so far both prequels has made me curious about the full story. We keep getting snippets of different people that have returned from death, but of course you're missing most of the story. the author has done a great job getting you interested in the story while keeping the rest a mystery.
