Satisfying conclusion to an original story!

Any additional comments?

As the final book in the trilogy, I found that the Retribution of Mara Dyer delivered a very satisfying conclusion to the series. It delivered ample suspense, moments of of smirking levity, romance, joy, sadness, and loss. A good book should deliver emotion, and I think between the story and Romano's narration, it did that.

With that said, the final book (as with the first two books of the series) was a bit long for the plot and could have used some extra editing to speed up the pace a bit. I understand the need for chapter breaks when switching between story lines but there were not enough of those to justify 74 (yes 74!) chapters. Unfortunately, in my opinion this book lacked some great plot twists that left me with a mouth-agape look of shocked surprise. I wish Hodkin had held back more information about various characters so that the conclusion to the story didn't end as predictably as it did.

In terms of the narration, I really liked Christy Romano. Her voicing for characters was varied enough that it was easy to follow conversations. There were only two negatives: occasional mispronunciations and some rather jarring voice-overs in parts of the book.

Overall, a good book that I couldn't put down.

raging disappointment

the first two books were spell binding and flowed well. if you're expecting more of the same, this isn't it. characters have completely different personalities. the flow of the book is incongruous. if I didn't need closure so badly, I would have stopped listening after about 10 chapters. it's almost as if a different author wrote it and just needed to get it overwith. the bad launguage was totally unnecessary and added nothing to the story. if you're looking for closure, save yourself several hours and skip to the last 10 chapters. you won't miss a thing.
