Captivating Redemption

Would you listen to The Third Book of Swords again? Why?

Yes, I probably would. This one was captivating form the first chapter, full of action and a lot of resolve from the first 2 books.

What other book might you compare The Third Book of Swords to and why?

Comparable to book 1 in the series for the action and interest it holds. Also I would compare it to Warbreaker for an amazing ride of a story and a very satisfying resolve

What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

As with the first 2 books he was great. I still think some of the characters should have had a more powerful voice based on their personalities but overall his voice was very engulfing.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

- Karen "I'm an LMT originally from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. I lived in NYC off and on for 15 years. I decided I had enough of long cold winters so summer of 2012 I relocated and now live in sunny Sarasota FL and loving every moment of it. My favorite thing to do is lay on the beach all day long listening to the waves and a great audible book."

Mediocre ending to a poorly written series.

This book almost felt like a relief. Not because it was written better or because it was more consistent in naming the gods. No. It was a relief because now I can move on to books that are pleasant to read.
