Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this sequel to Volk’s Game (also available from Tantor and read by Hoye), Alekei “Volk” Volkovoy remains a covert military operative. Hoye’s tones of multilayered self-doubt and grief intensify as the hero must locate a Fabergé egg and find terrorists who bombed American property in Moscow. These missions force his return to bloody Chechnya—where he’d been captured, tortured, and maimed—and into the hands of his old enemy, Abreg. Hoye evokes heartfelt empathy for the anguished Volk, and for the agonizingly conflicted Abreg, too, a notable acting achievement. He skillfully reflects various Russian accents, some thickly guttural, and contrasts the subtle Russian rhythms and intonations of Volk as well as the southern-tinged American accent of a U.S. agent. The wrenchingly strong depictions of physical and emotional torture could distress some, but Hoye’s dark, brooding performance perfectly mirrors the plot. --Whitney Scott --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

With her final novel, Villette, Charlotte Bronte reached the height of her artistic power.  First published in 1853, Villette is Bronte's most accomplished and deeply felt work, eclipsing even Jane Eyre in critical acclaim.  Her narrator, the autobiographical Lucy Snowe, flees England and a tragic past to become an instructor in a French boarding school in the town of Villette.  There, she unexpectedly confronts her feelings of love and longing as she witnesses the fitful romance between Dr. John, a handsome young Englishman, and Ginerva Fanshawe, a beautiful coquetter.  This first pain brings others, and with them comes the heartache Lucy has tried so long to escape.  Yet in spite of adversity and disappointment, Lucy Snowe survives to recount the unstinting vision of a turbulent life's journey--a journey that is one of the most insightful fictional studies of a woman's consciousness in English literature.
