Geek chic with a bellydance beat
This is a good book to pass time by if you are just needing something in the background while you are working. It honestly is not Nora Roberts best (I have read many of her books; Witness and The Collector were awesome) but I wasn't too convinced with this book.
I loved hearing how the past and the present were connected, I mean it was great in the story. The one thing though I wasn't too impressed with was parts of the narration. Some of it was good. I admit very good. But some parts started to irritate me. I think it was the tone of the narrator as she was trying to inflect certain parts of the Irish dialect. It just irritated me.
I honestly prefer Julia Whelan. I'm sure other people would disagree but for me she did a better job in narrating Nora Roberts.
Not really. I didn't bust out laughing or anything. I think I just enjoyed it overall.
A different narrator.
I have a large number of her books, and generally enjoy them. Her stories are formulaic, but I read for enjoyment, not for knowledge, so I don't care as long as the characters are appealing.
That so-called accent and the volume levels going up and down so rapidly. I want to actually hear the storyline, not try and figure out what she just said. I went back and tried to listen to this book again, and I just couldn't stand to do so.
My name is Mary. My huband Ken and I listen to books. Ken is a truck driver and he says that it helps the miles go faster.
exceptional in every way, and the narrator was just grand. loved it very much...fine and dandy
I was very excited to get this audiobook because I work 10 hour shifts and an audiobook is a great way to pass the time. I had read the book before and it is honestly one of my favorite trilogy's by Nora Roberts. However, after listening to it it reminds me a lot of her other series based in Ireland. Similar character descriptions and personalities which is a bit repetitive especially if you consider reading other books of the same author.
My biggest disappointment for the audiobook was the narrator. Her pitch and volume were very off a lot of the time and the biggest part that irritated me was her voice when she voiced The women. The ladies in this book are great beings in the prime of their lives and the narrator voiced them as if they were 50 year of Irish housekeepers. I am not sure I will buy the other two books in the trilogy unless they have a different narrator.
I love books that show caring and love among the main characters. This book shows a family that most folks would want to be part of.
When the "mortals" almost died to protect the witches. And when Lona (the newcomer), speaks in defense of Finbar (the fourth),
A book that makes you feel good about yourself after reading.
Couldn't even finish the book. The narrator makes every Irish woman sound like an exhausted senior citizen.
I don't think so.
Disappointing. Predictable plot like.
Absolutely! Nora Roberts comes through again with a tale of mystical magic in this enthralling book. She pulls you right into the story from the first chapter.
How the characters are developed and how well she draws you into their lives.
When Iona and Boyle finally admitted their feelings for each other.
It made me laugh because the characters were so believable and life-like. I also love anything involving magic, so this story ticks all boxes for me.
Can't wait to listen to the other two books in this trilogy!
