The narrator was perfect for this story. I fell into the story immediately. She read it like she was living it, no breaking in the middle of a sentence, no hesitation, no fumbling for the voices. Her switch from the Irish accent to the American accent was fabulous.
Katherine Kellgren narration sucked me in at once. I couldn't stop listening! Her voice and expression made Book 1 my favorite out of the 3
The story was pretty decent. What was not so amazing was the narrator only being able to do an Irish accent like an old lady. All the Irish characters sounded like little old ladies. Even the guys. So that was distracting.
Toward the end, I started wondering when it would be over, as it got a little repetitive with the angst and magic practicing.
All in all, not the worst I've heard, and the story was definitely different from the ones I'm used to hearing.
Nora is one of my favorites, she is always a great story teller. I like the story and will probably "read" the other two books. The spells were over the top, too loud, too much. Will still recommend.
I love Nora Roberts' stories and especially her trilogies. When she writes about magic and lore, she brings it to life and always has that special gift of making you feel the characters. This Tory won't let you down. The performance was amazing and did justice to the story. I recommend it! You'll love it.
I love Nora Roberts, but this narrator almost ruined this book for me. She's practically yelling through most of it, and she makes Iona seem like an airbrained idiot most of the time she's speaking.
I am a Nora Roberts fan, if she wrote it, I'll probably read it, her trilogies do tend to run on a formula, but the story itself is always quite different.
Maybe, if she's not going to be yelling through the whole book.
I usually love Nora Roberts! The story line was pretty typical! No surprises! I felt the story line was pretty bland!
The audio version of this book is horrible!!! I almost gave up, but I did go ahead and finish the book! The narrator had a very difficult time voicing all characters. A good portion of the time I had to figure out who she was portraying. Her Irish sounded like an old woman. So all characters speaking Irish sounded like "the old woman"!
I struggled to finish. it was to average. I have started to read boo that tale more thought. I went to this one for a change from the fantasy books I had been into. I forgot how boring romance novels are. Narrator was a bit over the top but I have had experience with her in the past. she can be very good but has a tendency to go a little overboard
