...I love listening!
One of my favorites.
I haven't listened to this narrator before. I liked her narration, it was very dramatic. She pulled off the accents for different characters well.
You really want to see certain characters do well and others... you want to see defeated.
The story is powerful and well-researched. I found it riveting and poetic in its foray into a spiritual realm few are allowed to enter. The characters were well developed and some seemed to be old friends and old enemies by the ending. The excellent narrator had her work cut out for her with the multiple voices required to really bring the story alive. Her accents and ability were stellar! I found the continuation of the story on past the most common endings to be very gratifying as well. I will be listening to more of this author. I highly recommend it.

This was a killer book. I can't wait for another book to come out. About the best voodoo horror story I've read. Her writing is superb. Little things mentioned at the start play out near the end of the book. Reminds me a little bit like Stephen King. Does.Again, this was well written and structured. I highly recommend.
The narration was good in this book. But other than that, I really did not like it. This book is long and I just couldn't wait for it to be over so that I can go on to something else. I guess I must not be into voodoo very much. I'm sorry I wasted a credit on it, but I listened to the end. I would not recommend.
I do not normally care for horror stories, but this one popped up on the daily deal and I will listen to Robin Miles read a grocery list, so I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The story was complex but not overly so. The characters were likable but flawed enough to be realistic. I could even relate to the antagonists, which I prefer to having a bad guy that's evil for no reason. The only problem I had was with the ending. *****MINOR SPOILER AHEAD***** The ending was mega-super-happy, when the entire tone of the book up until then suggested a more tragic resolution. *****END MINOR SPOILER *******
The narration, of course, was top notch. I LOVE Robin Miles' voice! She is able to handle multiple accents, multiple ages, and has no trouble with male voices, up to and including teenage boys.
Entrancing story of redemption and love. I was hooked from the beginning until the very end. Never a dull moment never a dull voice. The narration was superb!! She had every voice down and distinct. I could tell immediately which of the MANY characters was speaking. Wow is she talented. Will definitely read or listen to more by Tananarive Due and more read by the narrator!!
Could have been condensed. It was a long book. The first 2 hours were intriguing with a sad start but the middle 16.5 hours seemed to last an eternity, and at last (finally) toward the conclusion things were interesting again.
She did a fine job, a couple mispronunciations of WA state names but I did like her voice.
No need for a follow-up.
