Sounds like Siri is reading it, good story though

I enjoyed the book but the narrator sounds like a robot or the talking clock. ruined it a bit or me

OK, but not Kane and Abel

The follow up to Kane and Abel spends the first half of the book recapping that story through the eyes of Florentina, Abel's daughter and the heroine of this tale. Ultimately for me, that was more interesting than what followed. Fairly pedestrian in pace, unusually for Archer, and just not that much fun... Narration also very robotic. Overall, very average...

Easy Listening

Nothing stressful here! Just a good story, told well! If you want something challenging or deeper this is probably not for you, but for a great story, well written.. a relaxing read.

Disappointing

No where near as good as the first book cane and able very long with out much of an interesting storyline going on
Felt like it was just filled out with minimal effort lots of boring long bits that were just written to fatten out the book

A Tale of Two Halves

Enjoyable book. Having just finished Kane and Abel, I found the first half of The Prodigal Daughter was a recap of Kane and Abel. However second half of the book was brilliant

Not as good as Kane & Abel. Pace of the book, story, depth cannot be compared to Kane & Abel.

Disappointing half book was a recap of Kain & Abel

I eagerly purchased this sequel to Kain and Abel. BUT the first 23 chapters (over half the book) was devoted to a condensed version of Kain and Abel, before it got onto the story of the prodigal daughter. So this story could've been told in the 6 hours that were left of the audio book.
