Who knew that being in a coma could be so exciting? The heroine, Ash, is a crime victim. She has a level of consciousness, of which the doctors and her visitors are unaware. She gradually returns to life and then has quite the adventure. This audiobook is well-written. The narrator gives a great performance too.

A gift? You know me. I hate gifts

It was only the cops rode off that Michael noticed a man of small stature gazing at him from behind a car, at the other side of the street.

Michael waved his hand. Bull! What are you doing here?”

Bull used a cart to wheel some object, wrapped in a linen cloth, across the street to him. I brought you a gift, my boy.”

Michael helped him push it. A gift? You know me. I hate gifts.”

Do you?” Bull smiled, mockingly. I think youre just avoiding me, is all.”

Meanwhile, Ash put on her high heels, straightened her midnight-blue dress, and pulled off her tiara. I was just leaving.”

Bull came uncomfortably close to her. Startled, Ash stirred away from him. 

His sneer was half-delighted, half-devious. Who—may I ask—is this goddess, this heavenly goddess that you keep here all to yourself?”

My name is Ashley.” She flushed. But I prefer Ash, for short.”

Charmed.” He bared his teeth in a mocking smile. Manny Bullock.”

Sounds like a mythological creature. Half-man, half-bull?” 

I prefer the bull part. Bull, for short.”

Puzzled at the way the conversation took on a contrary tone, Michael tried to find something soothing to say. 

My friend, Bull,” he said, in a manner of introduction, is an extremely gifted artist.” 

Dont you undermine me,” said Bull. Im much more than that—Im a prankster.” 

She said, I hope to see your work one day.” 

My work needs a seeing eye.”

My eye isnt blind.” 

Disregarding what she said, Bull circled around her front to back, measuring her up and down all the while. Blue—Ash! Whoever heard of that? The color reflects wonderfully on your skin—but it doesnt fit with your nickname.”

Sometimes, whats good for the body,” she countered, is bad for the name.”

This is an old-fashioned murder mystery with a high-tech twist. A virtual reality designer decides to solve a murder. His methodology is intriguing. Can he solve the murder without being accused of the crime? The story was great. I loved the number of characters and how you get to know each one better. Information is revealed very naturally in the book. The characters are engaging and easy to relate to. I did not like the way the narrator voiced Ash (a female character). He used a girlish, juvenile voice. This is an adult woman who was recently raped. Why would she sound like a girl!? Not appropriate and downright offensive.

I really enjoyed this one...

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It was a lot of fun and it was really easy to get into. I didn't get to read the first book in the series. So I was so happy that I didn't feel lost in the beginning. If no one had ever told me this was book two, I would have never known. And I would love to get my hands on the rest of the books in the series! I also really liked this narrator. She did an excellent job.

The witch of Ein-Dor has a stash of bones in her back pocket

This I know: on the eve of the battle, he went to the old witch of Ein-Dor, seeking some advice, some word of reassurance. He begged her to summon the spirit of the prophet Samuel, who used to be his spiritual advisor until they fell out. She chanted her usual nonsense, “Double, double, toil and trouble.” Then, out of the poisonous steam puffing out of her caldron, a ghastly face arose, to the sound of a rattling of bones. 

I am certain that the witch of Ein-Dor has a stash of bones in her back pocket. She could not have fooled me, if her life depended on it. As for Saul, perhaps he was ready to be fooled. He should have let Samuel rot peacefully in his grave, because there, opening in midair, was a wrinkled, toothless mouth, and the words that came out of the cold froth rolling upon it were utterly horrific.

“Why do you consult me,” came the rasp, in a voice that sounded like the dead man, “now that the Lord has departed from you, and become your enemy? He has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to another. Because you did not obey Him, because you did not carry out His wrath against the Amalekites… Tomorrow you and your sons will be with me!”

I imagine despair burning out of Saul’s eye, as he rode his stallion at a furious speed, back to Mount Gilboa. Yes, he knew his fate, and the only thing he could do about it was to usher it in. That, and no other, was the reason he reached the summit, and fell on his sword.

 


The David Chronicles: Trilogy

Paperback: Amazon



"I love this series for its convincing depiction of real people in ancient times, for its unflinching honesty, and for its vividly real characters. This David is no cardboard cutout to be filled in with bright crayoned colors. His Bathsheba is no plaything. And his women will take their place on the stage of history, will have their voice, and will cry out for love and hate and hope."
