This is the same story as the Sign of Seven Trilogy. the narration is well done but the story is almost exactly the same. the sign of seven was a good story line but i didn't want to hear it again in a 14th century format. the concept had great promise but it was predictable once you have read the Sign of Seven Trilogy. I hope this helps
I am currently listening to this book - for the third time. I haven't been able to stomach the first half and keep giving it another "chance," but I should have learned my lesson! The narrator does such a bad job half the characters cannot be distinguished from one another due to Ms Roberts' lack of imagination when creating their names! His female voices are whiny, and irritating. Of course all fault cannot be pinned on him... he had nothing of substance to work with. Every few pages the same drivel is being spewed ex: "By the power of three, so mote it be." Seriously!!! None of the characters are engaging and the romance is just predictable. Do not waste your money on this, even if you get it on clearance.
Ms Roberts has many much better novels out there. Alas, I don't think I will read (listen?!) to anymore of them the flashbacks to this will ruin anything with her moniker on the cover. Trust me this review is not too harsh, I have gone quite easy, sample and see for yourself...
Keep the anti-nausea meds close at hand!
I have read most of the series that Nora Roberts has published. In fact, I've been listening to her "In Death" J.D. Robb-series since Audible began offering them. ( 6 more to go!) They are WONDERFUL!!!
The "In Death" series features Susan Ericksen's considerable talent as narrator. She gives life to all of the characters. I listen during my commute and I can't wait to get back to Eve Dallas' life.
When I saw the $4.95 offerings, I decided to try "Morrigan's Cross". By the time I listened to 1 1/2 CDs I just could not stand to listen to this book anymore. I'd finished both of my books for the month and I wanted to try one of the $4.95 "bargains"...but this book was NO bargain! Dick Hill's narration bored me silly! I literally couldn't take his droning on and on and on.
I hate to waste money by not finishing a book, but there are too many great books out there for me to spend time on ones I don't enjoy. I thought I'd try this one for $4.95, but the narrator is so irritating that the story is lost. I can't get more than halfway through, and the same narrator does the other two books in the series. Too bad.
This book is so boring and confusing. I'm glad I didn't download the whole series. I'm just upset that I spent 1 credit on it.
