The spellbinding story of an American lawyer who takes on a nearly impossible case-the defense of an African freedom fighter against his corrupt government's charge of murder Damon Pierce's life has just reached a defining moment: a gifted California lawyer, he's being divorced by his wife and his work often seems soulless. Then he receives a frantic e-mail from Marissa Brand Okari-a woman he loved years ago-and decides to risk everything to respond to her plea for help. Marissa's husband, Bobby Okari, is the charismatic leader of a freedom movement in the volatile west African nation of Luandia, which is being torn apart by the world's craving for its vast supply of oil. Bobby's outspoken opposition to the exploitation of his homeland by PetroGlobal-a giant American oil company with close ties to Luandia's brutal government-has enraged General Savior Karama, the country's autocratic ruler. After Bobby leads a protest rally during a full eclipse of the sun, everyone in his home village is massacred by government troops. And now Bobby has been arrested and charged with the murder of three PetroGlobal workers. Still drawn to Marissa, Pierce agrees to defend Bobby, hoping to save both Bobby and Marissa from almost certain death. But the lethal politics of Luandia may cost Pierce his life instead. Culminating in a dramatic show trial and a desperate race against time, Eclipse combines a thrilling narrative with a vivid look at the human cost of the global lust for oil. Here is Richard North Patterson at his compelling best, confirming his place as our most provocative author of popular fiction.



  • Even though I've already read all the books, I also wanted to listen to them on audio. Despite this book being my least favorite out of the four, as I found it excessively long and Bella's character to be weak and whiny, the narration was fantastic. I particularly appreciated that Jacob's character was voiced by a male narrator. Listening to the audio was actually more enjoyable for me than reading the book.
  • I must confess, as someone who's a bit older than the target audience and not particularly fond of supernatural romances, I found it quite a challenge to stay engaged throughout the Eclipse, the third installment in a four-book series. However, considering the immense popularity of the series, with multiple blockbuster movies and a whopping 28,071 listeners on this platform alone, who have given it an overall rating of 4.4, there must be something to it, right? The primary allure of this series lies in the captivating love triangle between humans, vampires, and werewolves. However, it's worth noting that the werewolf love interest doesn't truly come into play until towards the end of this book, which amounts to a total listening time of approximately 35 hours. Now, I understand that my opinion might be in the minority here, but I can't help but feel that the story could have been condensed to half its current length. Nevertheless, the cliffhanger at the end of this book has me hooked, and I reckon I'll probably cave in and purchase the final installment sooner rather than later, rather than waiting around for a sale as I usually do. In terms of performance, it's decent. The narrator doesn't make much of an effort to differentiate between male and female voices, which can be a bit confusing at times. However, there is a male narrator who briefly offers his perspective at the beginning and the end of the book, bringing Jacob's character to life. When considering the overall appeal of this series, it's important to keep in mind that the target audience is primarily high school and college girls, for whom it's a perfect fit. The content is devoid of explicit language or sexual scenes, though there are plenty of kisses and discussions about when things might progress further between the characters. While there is mention of vampire blood-sucking, it doesn't occur frequently, and the level of violence is relatively minimal. It's essential to listen to all four books in order, but do take into account the significant time commitment. As an adult, I can't wholeheartedly endorse its worth until I've experienced Book 4 and witnessed how everything concludes.
  • The love triangle in 'Eclipse' is absolutely gripping. I found myself laughing quite a bit at how the relationship between Edward and Jacob evolves. This audiobook just keeps getting more and more enjoyable as it progresses. I highly recommend listening to the entire series - you'll adore each and every installment. It's difficult to choose a favorite, both in terms of the books themselves and the characters within them.
  • I must admit, I was pleasantly taken aback by this series. Who would've thought that I, of all people, would be captivated by a romance novel? But lo and behold, with the introduction of mythical creatures into the equation, I found myself falling head over heels for this cupid-infused tale. In this particular installment, our protagonist finds herself caught in a whirlwind of emotions, torn between two loves: her one true love and her best friend. And if that wasn't enough to keep her on her toes, she's also being relentlessly pursued by a vengeful vampire, constantly under the threat of undead enforcers checking up on her, and strange occurrences are unfolding in Seattle. With all these elements at play, it's no wonder that this book becomes an irresistible page-turner that you simply can't put down.
  • I absolutely adore all of her books. In my opinion, this one leans towards being more sentimental compared to the other three, but I still thoroughly enjoy her unique ideas and seamless storytelling. Her writing style is elegant and her narration is incredibly smooth. As someone who reads a novel each week while also listening to an audiobook simultaneously, I have had the pleasure of experiencing both the written and audio versions of her series.
  • The plot of this audiobook keeps on getting more and more exciting. I highly suggest giving the third installment a listen. It's got everything from vampires and werewolves to humans, romance, mystery, and tons of action. I'm eagerly anticipating the next book in the series!
  • Man, I gotta be real, I am so let down. The first book was amazing, like seriously awesome. The second one had some sad parts, but still a great story overall. But then the third book hits, and boom! Talk about the main character being greedy. Throughout the entire series, it's been all about "True Love" between the hero and the main character - they're soulmates, you know? But out of nowhere, she suddenly ends up in the arms of her friend, kissing him like there's no tomorrow. It completely goes against everything that was built up between the hero and the main character. She keeps saying she loves the hero more and can't live without him, but she's also in love with her friend. It's like she switched her feelings just like that. It really messed with everything that made this series great. Not only was I disappointed with the main character and her actions, but I was also like, damn, this is turning into a soap opera. It's like we got vampires and werewolves on "Days of Our Lives" now.
  • While I kept on listening, the fate of the client is never in question, and there is no real suspense at the conclusion. The hero lawyer, while soaked in altruism, has no chance of winning the case in this kangaroo court. His talents are completely wasted; and we all know it from the get go. Probably the best thing this does is paint a picture of a west African oil exporting country; fully replete with Nigerian type corruption.
