Would you listen to Like a River Glorious again? Why?
Yes! This sequel gives the reader everything that a sequel should: revelations, tension, terror, hope and in this one, lots of gold. The pacing was perfect for me as we learn about mining, life in California and the progression of Leah's story.
What other book might you compare Like a River Glorious to and why?
I would compare it to the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix because there's a great balance of passing time and building tension to the plot.
Have you listened to any of Erin Mallon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I listened to Walk on Earth a Stranger and I love Mallon's narration. She's up there with some of my top favorite narrators. Her tender emotion gripped at my own emotions many times and her soft Southern accent gives extra life and authenticity to the story.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Some parts made me giggle and some made me tense when things were quickly escalating. There's a few shockers in this book and I felt uncertainty when the book ends. I have no idea where the final book will go, but that's a good thing. Carson has managed to make me feel something in every book, which had been somewhat rare for me in the past.
Any additional comments?
This is a special series that I don't know that we'll see again. The backdrop of 1849 America is wild, terrifying, realistic and beautiful. There's a healthy romantic relationship that builds in this book, as well as great messages of serving others, tolerance of others and bravery. Highly recommended series.

This seemed to conclude the story for Leah Westfall. The California history of gold mines, indian and chinese slavery and the settlements reminds me of all adversity and sacrifices made for land. If you like adventure, history, and a hint of magic you will like this book.
