July 2005: Alice Tanner stumbles upon two skeletons during an archaeological dig in the mountains outside Carcassonne. Inside the hidden tomb where the bones lie crumbling, she experiences an overwhelming sense of malevolence, as well as a creeping understanding that, however impossible it seems, she can somehow understand the mysterious ancient words carved into the rock. Too late, Alice realises she's set in motion a terrifying sequence of events that she cannot control and that her destiny is inextricably tied up with the fate of the Cathars 800 years before.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I didnt get to it.
Was Labyrinth worth the listening time?
No - I struggled to give it a chance but it didn't grab me.
Any additional comments?
Pedestrian writing values - "her pale skin and aqualine features" "her dark fringe of eyelashes " etc etc . Groan...

Nice little story, but nothing new. Jumping from the past to the present keeps the story going, tension up. History seems to be correct, geography, places, are sometimes not as real as supposed to be. Funny if you know places and history. Sometimes too romantic - as stories about these people mostly are.
