Long and drawn out

Books 1&2 great but book 3...
To many blah blah blahs. Some high interesting periods then completely drops to boredom. How many times does a writer mention each character running their hands through their hair? This writer?
Nearly every character. Seriously? Completely disappointed with book 3.
I hope book 4 doesn’t leave me wanting a way to recoup time wasted on hands running through hair!!!

Outstanding Series

These books and the narration are some of the best I have read or listened to. They need to be made into movies.

A Fictional Story.....Or Maybe Not??

A lot of action, breath holding suspense and thought provoking question of good versus evil. The God's Lions series is a must read for anyone who believes good will always win over evil. Kudos to John Lyman for a great story.
