Yes, Amanda Quick gives us a few really steamy scenes, but what impressed me most was the storyline. (You could almost cut out the steamy parts, but they are really fun!)
I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say that the characters are well-written, the heroine is a strong individual (not just waiting to be rescued), the period details are great, and there is a real puzzle/mystery to keep you guessing.
As for the narrator, Anne Flosnick has a delightful voice. She is able to do men's voices quite well, and her vocal variety for all the characters seems to me to be spot on.
This book is so much fun! The characters are well-developed, the world is a fascinating alternate universe, and I can't wait to find out what happens in part two (soon, I hope).
Ms. Dawe has a great range. The Jaegermonsters are hysterically funny, and Crosp's voice is perfection itself! It's hard to believe this is just one person narrating. I certainly hope the same narrator will be used for the sequel(s).
