Shadow of Night didn't have as much suspense as A Discovery of Witches did. There was a lot of reveling in historical detail at the expense of moving the plot forward.
The gathering of witches teaching and supporting Diana
Some times there is too much time spent on details of clothing and things of that sort. felt it took away from the storyline.
Jennifer Ikeda does an excellent job of reading SON and giving voices to the different characters. Her timing and voice keep it interesting.
Diana discovering that she is a weaver and her interaction with the gathering in London.
Her ability to give the characters a personality with her voice.
When Diana promises to be with Philipe when all seems lost.
Yes, I would. I enjoyed the first book of this series, and found this one quite enjoyable. Her characters are exciting, and I look forward to part 3.
All of the different characters you get to meet and follow as they wield their various powers. The time travel that took place in the story provided intrigue and danger.
Her voice was versatile which brought life to the various characters.
I don't want to give away too much about the book, so I will say the time travel and family reunions were powerfully moving and my favorite parts.
Can't wait for the next book of the series.
I love the narrator for this book. I love the voices and different accents used. You never have any trouble knowing which character is speaking.
I call this series the adult version of Twlight.
This book wasn't as good to me as the first. But it had to fill holes that were missing in the first book and new developments for the next.
It was a long wait for Shadow of Night and it's more than equal to Discovery of Witches. This book wraps you in a world of magic. It incorporates history, art, alchemy, romance, and adventure. The words flow from the reader in the voices of the characters. Jennifer Ikeda is part of the experience of this book.
Not as good as the first in the series, but a good listen. The performance was solid, the storyline good, but wrapped in many details.
I really like Jennifer Ikeda's narration. The story was not as good as Discovery of Witches. It was still entertaining. I would listen to another of Deborah's books.
She has a great voice that let the story come alive.
