Not bad at all. Story was pretty good. I did question some of the dialogue as being "too modern" but I could be wrong. Did they use the term "half an hour" in the medieval times? Also, I was getting annoyed at how much Domenic mistrusted Meg. Other than that , the story was enjoyable.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Wow....this book was so awesome. What a romance. I have no idea how the author could write such ridiculously sensual and HOT scenes without the characters even having sex! I have never listened to a book wishing the heroine would have her monthly flow already! (You'll understand when you listen to the book)
Great characters, great story, wonderful romance.....it's just so so awesome. Very credit worthy....it's regular price worthy in my opinion.
Now...I have NEVER been a fan of Anne Flosnik and in most of my reviews I don't hold my tongue about her narration.....well this book has made me rethink Anne Flosnik as a narrator. I usually cringe when I see she is the narrator...but she did an excellent job with this book. I stand by my other reviews of her narration...but this was a different Anne...I LOVED how she handled every character.
Listen to this book! I'm going to get the other two in the series RIGHT NOW!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I loved this medieval romance. Unique plot, beautiful love story with lots of suspense and great characters. Sexually tasteful, the little falcon and brave warrior make a grand duo! The narrator was wonderful at times but grizzly voiced at others, the wonderful outweighed the not though and I really enjoyed her. I will continue on with 2 & 3 and I wish she would write Sven's story as he is the most mysterious character of all.
For the genre it was quite good. Elizabeth Lowell is a good storyteller. It is a shame about the narrator.
The narration by Anne Flosnik wasn't too bad except her interpretations of male characters was absolutely deplorable - especially the main male character. It was embarrassing to listen to and I cringed everytime, especially during the love scenes. It is a shame because I quite liked her accent. I will think hard before listening to her again.
Good news that someone else is narrating the next book in the series. Hopefully it will be an improvement.
Yes. I found the characters interesting and I enjoyed the story very much.
I love how the story ended. It left me wanting additional chapters or a sequel.
She used some voices I would have imagined the characters to have.
Time and again the action of unspoken love.
This narrator makes dialog of young women sound like old men, young men sound like over dramatic thespians and the bad guys rasp and hiss like Gollum! Over-acted! I guess this one is just above this narrator's skill set. I wanted to give up after the first 2 hours!'
Probably not another book by written by Elizabeth Lowell, possibly another narrated by Anne Flosnik.
I highly doubt it
I would not recommend this book to anyone. The narrator has totally ruined the experience for me because of the most boring narration and phony voices. I have had to stop repeatedly to brace myself to just listen to the STORY, not the narrator. I am appalled she was not stopped and told to begin this book again.
The Woman in White
Her horrible attempt at making a man sound "evil." She had three levels of inflection throughout the entire story, most of them a hoarse whisper. The levels never varied. I can talk about the mail being delivered with more enthusiasm, inflection, or variation in my speech.
Yes. It inspired me to write my first review. Sad that it had to be because the narration was so poor. The story was not much better.
I will be most cautious to make sure I do not get a book narrated by her again.
Loved the story well written keeps you interested in the characters you want to root for the main characters. The narration was somewhat disappointing but would still highly recommend the book
Almost through with this listen and feel like my throat is sore from listening to this reader rasp her way through this story. I like Elizabeth Lowell tremendously, but I will not ever listen to anything of hers or anyone's read by this person again. It is full on painful and simply ruined the recording for me.
