Sadly, this one did not engage me and I was somewhat disappointed. I suppose it's because the main character merely observes rather than engages in the history. There just wasn't enough in this book to live up to her others.
I bought this book thinking it would fit in with my enjoyment of mystery or supernatural type of books. It was so boring I tried speeding up the playback. After several chapters I just gave up and used my menu options to mark it as already listened to. But really, this book sucked for my tastes.
Listening to Mitch Rapp right now. Love Vince Flynn. So saddened for his family and his huge family of listeners and readers.
You must read the winter sea Rosalynn Landora the narrator was awesome they needed her in this one

Audible needs to get Susanna Kearsley's book Marianna
I really liked the premise of this book, but got bored halfway through it. It was really long and tedious and difficult to keep track of all the characters. I didn't want to abandon it, but I was glad when it was over. If you like this sort of story, I think you'll be happy with the ending. The narrator was excellent - she kept me going.
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
A romance that takes two on a mind teleporting expedition. It starts out good, collapsed through the middle and had a predictable ending. Not bad for those that enjoy the romance genre.
I would put it in the middle of the books that I have listen to so far. I love the story in the Firebird, and how it tied to some of Susanna Kearsley's previous books, and I will almost certainly read it again. But, while I have loved Katherine Kellgren's narration in a number of other books, it didn't seem to quite fit with this story. While her voice is perfect for the "Her Royal Spyness" series, she seemed a bit perky/quirky for this story, which I found a bit distracting at times.
I absolutely love Sally Armstrong's narration of Susanna Kearsley's Shadowy Horses. It seems to fit perfectly with the story, and I have listen to it several times. Given how this books ties to Shadowy Horses, I would love to hear Sally Armstrong's version of this book. Unfortunately, well this version of the book exists, it is unavailable for sale in my region of the world. Somewhat frustrating to know that it's out there but unavailable to me.
12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!
The entire story, from start to finish - it was wonderful and addicting. I lost sleep because I wanted to follow the adventure of Nicola and Rob through Scottland, Belgium and Russia. The Firebird is beautifully written and Susanna Kearsley is a gifted writer who is able to transport you to another time and place. This book has mystery, intrigue, romance and strong, well developed characters. I really LOVED this book and I was so sad when it came to an end. It's just one of those books....
I kinda had a thing for Rob. I loved that he knew who he was, accepted his gift and all along had been pining away for Nicola. It was all super romantic and sweet. And in the end, he was able to help Nicola face and eventually accept her amazing gift.
She was great - her narration was spot on.
I've now downloaded and listened to all of Susanna Kearsley's books and I need more. Audible, please release more. please!
Half an hour into this I wanted to scream. The narrator over-dramatizes everything and her voice becomes incredibly grating. More like an audition than a story telling.
I wouldn't recommend the audio version of this book because of the irritating narration. I'm quite disappointed because I had researched the narrator's previous book reviews and hadn't found any complaints. As a previous reviewer mentioned, she reads too fast and with an irritating intensity without modulation except with a few of the characters' voices. I was really looking forward to Kearsley's latest book. Too bad I couldn't enjoy it.

I have listened to audible for many years - several books a month. This is the first time I have taken the time to write a review. I felt this was a duty to tell other readers that is is one of the best novels I ever listened to. If you like history (18th century European ) and or romance you will love this. And the narrator is gifted! I would listen to her read the telephone book.
