A low in the series, but still well worth the time

I think the trouble with this book is the huge leap of faith we need to take in order to accept that any adult would ask children (or even untrained adult civilians) to go into such a heavily contested military zone. I had trouble swallowing this, and so the rest of the book also felt a little more "make believe" than the previous books had.

Even with that aside, however, I didn't find this book as compelling as the first three. I have purchased the next in the series, but feel a bit wary. It is difficult to put my finger on the problem exactly (it is still a good listen), but this installment felt a little forced. I got the impression that there were meant to be only 3 in the series, but the publishers made such a great offer Marsden dusted the characters off for number 4.

I have marked the narrator lower on this recording than the first 3 - this is simply because she has so much trouble with the New Zealand accents! She does a fabulous job otherwise and captures the personalities of the main characters well.

Awesome book, amazing series, highly recommend!

I own the paperbacks too and have read them many times but still I bought the audio books because I can listen while I'm at work (I clean houses). Love these books!
