♥ ♥ ♥ + I picked this book simply because it had high ratings (4.4 stars out of 5 from over 2600 people) and it was on a selection in the Buy One Get One Free sale on Audible. I thought it would be one my husband and I could listen to together. I just like a good story, but he likes action. This one took awhile to draw me in. He says it’s because there was not much action in the first hour or so, but I had to concentrate to keep the characters straight and to make myself listen. Then it happened, I just got sucked right in like a big whirlpool. I circled for awhile, then got caught up and was suddenly into it. There was lots of action, people with interesting magical powers (travelers, healers, mouths, brutes and more). There was plenty of action, but there was enough of a story line to keep me happy too. We’ll read the next one in the series for sure.
