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?

Swords of Fate

All is at it was

The story had an unpredictable ending but I would of love to have more information on how the swords were made. I read the First triad and it gave me a glimpse to this series. However I expected more depth from the book of swords and did not get it.

Now on to read the next series of the Lost swords and finish the Triads other books.

All in all, I enjoyed the adventure and how I seem to be looking down into the story as if I was there.

Really love it.
