I loved the story line. I was kept interested to the very end. The narrator was very good. The only thing I really didn't like was in between each chapter this hokey music played. It kind of sounded like a 70's soap opera soundtrack music. Very cheesy.
Although the story started to drag towards the end, I really enjoyed this book. I loved the back and forth between the past and the present and the intertwining of the two. The characters catch your interest and keep it throughout.
A waste of money on what I thought might be a promising listen. Very boring. Never gets off the ground so to speak. I stopped listening about a third of the way through.
This book sat on my wish list far too long! Now that I finally read it, I was sad to learn Katherine Howe has no other books posted on audible.com.
I really enjoyed this one. I saw it on the summer reading list in Real Simple and decided to check it out. I found myself getting excited to listen to this one and couldn't wait to get back to it every time I put it away. Great narration as well.
I enjoyed this story, it was a fun listen especially heading in to the autumn but either I am an especially cunning listener or the story was a bit obvious. Still just because you figure out the mystery pretty early on it doesn't make it less interesting to listen to. The historical aspect was very interesting and (I have no idea but guessed) was well researched.
Enjoyed the story. It proves that books can be good without descriptive violence. As witch books go it is one of the best. I would love to read more books by this author that are bound to be better than a 1st book.
This is the first intelligent historical thriller I've encountered since The Historian. I couldn't stop listening. My one qualm was with the narrator, who, like so many other narrators and actors, seems to think that everyone from Massachusetts sounds like a Kennedy or even better, like they are from Maine. While this annoyed me, it wasn't enough to keep me from thoroughly enjoying the story.
It started out a little slow but picked up towards the end. Although unfortunately it was predictable towards the end. I usually don't enjoy witches and spells but this wasn't over done with some well written historical scenes mixed in.
I choose this book to take with me to our cabin. I was looking for something to listen to on a quiet night on the deck or a walk in the woods. It was great for that as the book takes place in the summer/fall and lent itself to long walks. I also liked the music between chapters. In my opinion it added to the atmosphere. The reader was also, I thought, perfect for the book.
