Plenty of twists and turns
What did you like most about Desolate Sands?
An intricate plot, never sure who did what until the end. A lot of unexpected happenings too. A bit too graphic in parts so I had to move forward.
Have you listened to any of Mil Nicholson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No I haven't. I did find some characters voices confusing as to who was speaking. Still not sure if Mil is male or female.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes but I can't give it away
Any additional comments?
A good listen, but be aware of the language and gory descriptions.
