I very much enjoy the odd Nora Roberts book as the stories tend to deliver you into the environment they take place in. I did feel like I was in Ireland and who doesn't like a good love story but this narrator made me feel like every second was the characters last! The intensity of "going to have a pint" was downright distracting! I am looking forward to book two but only if they change narrators!
the narrator was awful! I can honestly say she seriously ruined the book. I have read all of Nora Roberts books and loved them, so I will delete this audio version and read the book. The story is great I wish they would redo it with a different narrator, seriously shouldn't the editors listen to them at all before releasing them? There is a huge difference between reading enthusiastically and hysterical shreiking
Hate the performance. Felt I was 12 years old listening to it. Normally enjoy Nora Roberts but this story and especially the performance were not up to par.
I can't imagine
Not to me
For me this was a very bad choice, I usually love Nora Roberts
I really enjoy listening to Nora Roberts books.... mostly b/c I'm a hopeless romantic, but I can't wait for the remaining books in this series!
The story was very good. Waiting for the second book.
The battles fought against the evil one.
Yes, please get someone else to read the rest of the series. The narrator was too dramatic and listening really wears the story down.
Yes, it needs to follow the story line into at least one or more books.
I've been reading Nora Roberts for years and she just keeps getting better. Change your narrator, please do your fans a big favor.
A more interesting storyline
I won't go for this series for sure
The accent was detracting
How do I return this book? I heard you can do that.
In love with love...
Im only writing this to give another opinion of the narrator in this story. I enjoyed her immensely. Im African American and I can't say that I am strong in the do's and dont's of Irish accents but I enjoyed this story and Katherine's narration. I was caught up during the magical excitement and her rise in voice was timely. She has a strong voice and I could tell which character was which. Keep doing what your doing Nora. I can't wait for the next two episodes and I hope you keep the same narrator. There is nothing worse than having to switch narrators during the middle of a series.
Absolutely! And I already have. The story is riveting and so well narrated, with such gusto and enthusiasm thet you just can't get enough.
It is difficult to choose a favorite character because they all have their endearing qualities but, I think that Mara is one of my favorites . Her "human" perspective on the whole magic situation is very down to earth and I enjoy her sense of humor.
The battle scene at athe end of the book is my favorite. The intensity of power experienced by Iona is breathtaking.
The ancient struggle between good and evil...... Can innocence and purity of heart win?
To be clear immediately, I’m a fan of Nora Roberts/J. D. Robb. I have thirty-plus of her books, including most of the In Depth series. I actually pictured Roarke and Eve Dallas in a few of the love scenes in the Dark Witch. Her books are never deep. I mean, come on, she’s not Shakespeare. But, being Shakespeare isn’t her role or intent. Nora Roberts writes those wonderful curl-up-on-the-sofa girly romance novels. Escapism at it’s finest. And, basically, that’s what you’ll get with the Dark Witch, Book 1.
A paranormal, ethereal theme draws a girl together with her cousins in Ireland. A bit formulaic, but she, with her cousins, chases off the demonic presence that has infiltrated the O’Dwyer clan for a century or so. But, it survives for the sequels to come.
I had no trouble reading (listening), and understood well who-said-what-to-who. I am, however, going to bad-mouth the reader. Holy smokes, woman! Take a breath and settle down! Way too much ‘emoting’. I realize there were some tense scenes that needed a tone to convey climax. But, the reader sounded like she was having one on occasion and I actually fast-forwarded through a few of these over-the-top sections.
This is the first book of a trilogy. If Nora retains the same reader, I’m not sure I’ll be interested in the follow-ups.
