I think this is the best by far
too many to really recall one specific
I love the different accents she brings to the story she delivers every word the way it should be heard.
This is a really good book to the point I got my husband engulfed in it as well. He couldn't wait for me to finish it so he could enjoy it by himself.
I love the story like and the fantastical world that Deborah Harkness has continued unveiling to us in the second book of the All Souls trilogy. The biggest problem I have is that she spent so much time reminding us of what happened in the first book. Having read them back to back, this seemed a bit excessive.
This is a good listen, as was the first book in this series. While I am not a big fan of the more romantic aspects of the story, the rest of the plot plays out well.
It continues where "Discovery of Witches" left off. Some aspects of the storyline make it difficult to compare to other books of this genre.
Her vocal characters are consistently distinct and and not just read.
No- I was disappointed.
I was looking forward to this book, and did enjoy it somewhat, but it was nowhere near as good as the first book,
Yes- to be suspicious of trilogy series
I like the witch part of the story best. However, unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the vampire genre.
Yes, but only if they are interested in stories that include vampires.
Meeting Queen Elizabeth.
Yes, it was worth the listening time. The timeline and history timeline was well researched by the author.
The narrator did a great job.
I swallowed the bait, hook, line, and sinker, and now await the sequel! Although I was more immediately engaged by the first book "Discovery of Witches," this book was intriguing for its historical context and literary allusions. I derive great pleasure from Harkness' ability to bring stale and musty history to life. Her depiction of the often lauded Christopher Marlowe as a demonic drunken opportunist is a fine foil to Matthew as well as to the fledgling Will. The author's knowledge of the occult sciences also enlivens the text. Through her fiction, she presents the possibility of real-life applications of magic, whether through simple acts such as brewing tea or practicing yoga.
In regard to the narrator, finally a French accent I can tolerate.
It's different for a change from what I normally read. I mean I've read about vampires (Anne Rice) and witches (Anne Rice and Nora Roberts) but when the two come together in a romance .... well, I'm all in! The story is poignant and gets the reader involved with the characters. I love it when you feel connected.
None so far.
I have both the book and the audible download and actually thought the book had more feeling/emotion. Not that Jennifer Ikeda's narration took away from that.
It's perfect just the way it is.
I cannot wait for the next one. Thanks to Ms. Harkness for a wonderful story and all of the historical characters! I loved it.
I can't really say without giving it away, but I liked the romance and how two people from two different worlds could be together and combat the impossible.
This sequal was wonderful and Jennifer is a delight to listen to. The history was wonderfully displayed but not overly so. The frustrating part were the pauses between chapter announcement and the chapter, several times I thought that it had stopped working because they were so long. It took the flow from the story.
Deborah is a wonderful writer and I find that just when I come up with a question, she answers it in her story. The writing in both her books were very intuitive and I look forward to the third! Deborah please hurry!! LOL
Great series sequal
I am captivated by her ability to be spot on with all of the accents and inflections. She is wonderful to listen to.
A must listen!
