I listened to this book on Audio book and it's really a great story. I enjoyed that it's slightly dramatized with a lot of sound effects, and the narrarator has the sexiest voice ever!! But most of all it's a great story with just the right mix of faith, action, suspense, and romance all rolled up into one. I'm hoping to get the rest in this series and listen to them on CD.
