This was a great "read"!! This book and the one before in the series (Thuvia) are my two favorites in the five book series. I like the books about John Carter's kids much more than those about him I suppose! I will revisit this series again! By the way, don't be scared of the horrible reading voice in the double first two chapters. He isn't anywhere else in the book, and it's so bad I felt bad for him! The other reader was very pleasant to listen to and does the rest of the book alone.
