The Trenton Legacy

This was a really good story.Some of the characters were sympathetic,I liked Liam. Amy Williams was an ok narator.Sometimes she nailed it but most of her voices seemed screechy and overplayed to me.She has a nice reading voice. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Gripping

I really enjoyed this listen, the story gripped me from the first page and kept me engaged right through to the end. Maggie & Tim were likeable characters and Samuel's legacy is ever present through his granddaughter. A good thriller brought to life by the narrator. I would listen to other books narrated by Amy Williams and look forward to reading more from Dale Ripley. Generally I prefer to try to work out who the baddies are, but in spite of knowing fairly early on in the story, it didn't spoil the book. Recommended.

Great Thriller!

The Trenton Legacy by Dale Ripley packs a punch. I was totally immersed in the story of Maggie. There are some cliche things, but I enjoyed them. I really liked how the story moved along and kept my attention. The narration by Amy Williams was very well done. She added the right emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

A mystery/ thriller that is entertaining and also suspense to add to the enjoyment of listening to this audiobook. It's a good story line and good narration

Lots of Potential.

The central plot of the novel is a good one. The characters needed a little more fattening up, they were a little cliché and one dimensional. The story wondered around a little between a mystery, a crime and a Boys Own adventure. The narration was good. It would have benefitted from stronger editing but was a reasonable listen. It would be interesting to see if the second book in the series improves.

Crazy!!

This is a crazy book! When listening to it all I could think of is this could happen in real life. It's pretty much a war on our immune system! I loved how in the end she finds her grandfather did what he did to protect her. But wow this is scary

Good Storyline

This has been a good book. A bit over exaggerated in some character profiles but still enjoyed it.

Any William's has done a good job with the narration. Her vocals for the characters were well defined.

Wow...another fabulous thriller by this author!

Murder, a mad scientist and a race to solve a puzzle left by a dead man. Maggie Trenton is devastated when she learns of her estranged grandfather’s murder. But the old man had sent a clue to her via his trusty dog just before his attackers finished their job. Now Maggie & her bf Tim are trying to figure out her grandfather’s message while staying one step ahead of the killers. This book is fantastic...you’ll stay on the edge of your seat hoping that Maggie survives and that there will be justice for the bad guys! Great performance by the narrator, who pulled off several characters so seamlessly. Definitely a must read...and on my re-read list.
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Interesting and different storyline. I didn’t care for the reader. Some parts of the story dragged for me where other parts flowed well.

Full bore excitement

Thriller about a mad scientist who would like to eliminate defective people so that he can become the master of a perfect race.
The characters in the story must discover the truth to prevent this from happening.
The narrator was very good.

Enjoyed it!

This was a great book to listen to while making a long drive. Some cheesy parts for sure..but the overall story was great. I loved the concept. I wasn't so thrilled with the narration. on this one but that's probably a personal preference. I loved the characters..Mad Dog was especially interesting. Maggie was one tough cookie for sure...by the way..if Liam ever needs a home..I'm your girl!!
