I took a chance on this book there was no sample available by have enjoyed Nora Roberts book before. All I can say is that after listening to only 3 chapters I was hooked. I have never written a review before but felt the need to write one now. The books release timing is prefect with Halloween only a few days away. So take a chance and get this book . I will write more after I finish it.
I have not. But her voices are great. I usually will not listen to books with out hearing a sample first because the narrator can make or break a good book.
It hooked me from the first sentence. an intense need to hear more and find out where and what was going to happen next.
I listen to books because I'm not a strong reader have listen to over 200 books in the past year all types . So I know Nora Roberts writing style.But again the Narrator can make the story good or bad and Katherine Kellgren does an excellent job.
This book started off really bad - trite and boring, but the narrator was so over the top dramatic that I could not keep listening to see if things ever got any better. I tried twice and turned it off almost at once. She was loud and dramatic in just about every line she spoke. Could not imagine a whole book listening to this. I am not a fan of Ms. Robert's trilogy books but was willing to give this a try. Not happening - returning today.
Good story - pretty typical of Nora - I enjoy all of her books but I had a really hard time listening - the narrator was so overly dramatic I had to stop several times to "rest" my ears - I have also purchased the e-book and will be reading. I am sure I will enjoy that more!
the reader was overly dramatic - I am all for emphasis on the "exciting" parts of the story but the reader was completely over the top!
I did not read the print but the audio was fabulous...Katherine Kellgren brings Ireland and the characters alive with her Irish accent.
There were so many I cannot choose ...
Again I enjoyed so many the book is truly gripping, humerous and emotional the entire way through.
Yes, both laugh and cry but not much cry only one scene.
Nora Roberts has done it again. a brilliant story combining other worldly and the modern. Katherine Kellgren was fabulous in her character narrations. I felt I was in Ireland listening to the Irish people. Cannot wait for the next book.
funny, romantic, high energy. quality magic.
The narrator helped this story, though the story was good.
Loved it on to book two I also really liked the narrator despite all the negative comments
I like reading books about witches. The last trilogy I read was "The Discovery of Witches". This one is comparable and did not disappoint. I found myself staying up very late, extending the sleep timer multiple times. I purchased books 2 and 3 so I can listen to the trilogy without interruption. Book 2 is performed by a different reader. I am anxious to set the sleep timer and stay awake! I am sure it will be as good as the first. I feel like I know the characters and enjoy their.company!
Nora Roberts writes a compelling story. She has developed characters who are believable. The reader does an excellent job of breathing life into the story.
I only have 2 issues with the book:
First, the sex in the story is explicit. I understand that it is par for the course in romance novels, but I wouldn't let a minor read it.
Second, the witchcraft is explicit,also. OK, the book is titled "Dark Witch". But I have read a lot of books about witches without this level of detail about the mechanics of spell casting.
If these issues don't bother you, then I recommend the book.
