I listen to books while I do the repetitive part of my job and while I do yard work. I can't use audiobooks that require strict attention.
Most definitely. Hartman has a complete world here. The history and culture are complete, not created as she goes along. The characters are engaging, the relationships complex and real. I like the steam punk feel. I look forward to spending time with these characters, again.
I think I liked Seraphina's relationship with her uncle, Orma, the most.
I have not, but I did enjoy this one.
Not exactly. I didn't want to rush through so that it was over too quickly. But it was hard to stop.
I loved the way she could change her voice! It helped me so much to understand who was talking and not get confused, but to help me follow along.
I loved the twist at the end where Lady Corongi was actually Imlann! It blew my mind cause I was not expecting that at all.
No I haven't but after reading this I probably will consider it.
Sometimes I laughed.
Love this book so much!!! It was amazing! Great job Rachel!!!
follow a woman named seraphina who has a secret she's!!!!! o no I'm not going to tell you. You have to read it to find out any way read it for sure it makes you feel happy it makes you feel sad laugh or cry it's great book read it
I am a fiber artist and teacher. I love moderate action, plot twists, diverse characters and much romance.
I guess this is basically a YA level novel, but it was so clever & fun, anyone who likes dragons and castles will enjoy it. We started this one on a road trip and then had to get out a puzzle when we got home so we could just sit and listen in the living room?
The narration was very good and fit the main character and genre quite well. The "voices" were maybe not utterly perfect, but they were pretty darn good. Her phrasing was excellent in my opinion. The pauses at periods and proper observation of punctuation made it much easier to absorb all the little details of the writing, which is quite literate and, at times, amusing, and the hints about the various ongoing intrigues.
It says there are 2 narrators above? Huh. I didn't see that on the "cover" and I didn't notice in listening. I guess if there were two they worked well together!
Even though most of the intrigue obviously gets cleared up by the end (it wouldn't be very satisfyingly YA if it didn't) the excellent characters have us thinking about planning another road trip to start the sequel.
