Seb Kirby is the author of two series, The James Blake series and the Raymond Bridges sic fi thriller series. He has been an avid reader from an early age, when his grandfather ran a mobile library in Birmingham. I am honored that he posted this review for the audiobook edition of my novel, Rise to Power:
- Where does Rise to Power rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?This is one of the best realised audiobooks I've listened to so far.
Have you listened to any of David George’s other performances before? How does this one compare?This is the first time I've listened to a performance by David George. I think his presence is excellent and he makes a great success of bringing out the passion and intrigue of Uvi Poznansky's great writing.
Any additional comments?The story of David, known by many only for the killing of Goliath, offers a rich source for mythological storytelling that has appealed to writers, poets, playwrights and filmmakers. Uvi Poznansky joins this select group by offering a new perspective, one infused with her acute artistic sensibility. Writing from the point of view of David himself, she presents a portrait of a man consumed by passions he will perhaps never be able to fully control and imagines in superb detail much that is absent from the historical record. This is not the expected picture of the biblical King but one that brings out the whole man, good and bad. ‘Rise To Power’, the first volume of a three book series, is an impressive achievement and one that leaves no doubt that the remaining books in the series will be at the top of your reading list.
