    Lady Della despises all things Viking. They may rule the land, but they will never rule her. Unfortunately, her father doesn't seem to agree. To prove his continued allegiance to the Viking king, the Ealdorman of Strathfeld betroths his only daughter to a respected Viking Lord - a warrior whose legendary prowess isn't reserved for the battlefield. Fighting the newfound craving in her body and the unwelcome fire in her heart, Della must choose between everything she knows to be true and the one thing she never expected...

    Story
    Would you listen to Lord of Fire, Lady of Ice again? Why?

    Yes. Mason Lloyd's voice was very clear and resonated well with the characters. Plus the story was very entertaining.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the characters interacted with each other. It was both realistic (in the sense that they never knew what the other was thinking) and dramatic. I went through a wide range of emotions right along with them.


    Which character – as performed by Mason Lloyd – was your favorite?

    The Lady of Ice. He really captured her refined but sassy attitude perfectly with his vocal inflections.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    From the beginning to the end I was moved. The ease of slipping into the characters point of view was so smooth I didn't realize I had done it until I stopped listening. The range of emotions I experienced changed as fluidly as the characters emotions did. Sometimes I went from happy, to infuriated, to mildly smug, to utter surprise all within one brief moment. I laughed, teared up, and even found myself blushing. I am not naive but the Lady of Ice was.


    Any additional comments?

    Michelle M. Pillow wrote a wonderful book and Mason Lloyd did a marvelous job narrating it. When it was over I was sad that I wouldn't get to hear any more.

    Merrick, dark elfin King of Valdis, had once been heir to all that was good - happiness and pleasure his domain. Now, trapped as the ruler of mischief, king of necessary evil, he stands on a precipice of choice. On one side, his estranged brother, now ruler of what should have been Merrick's, and on the other, King Lucien of the Damned. Both would sway him. Damnation is winning.

    Story
    What did you love best about King of the Unblessed?

    The whimsy of the fairy tale people. Elves, trolls, dragons, sprights, berserkers, goblins...So many wonderfully developed characters. It was as if a beloved childhood fairytale had been reshaped into an adult fantasy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Merrick, I related to to him the most. He is not a flowery, flattering King who is able to express his emotions verbally well. He is sincere, and honorable in all he does. He did all he could to show Julianna that he loved her, and made a few mistakes along the way. He is, after all, not only a man but a King. What man doesn't make mistakes when trying to court a woman? They think like men not women. For King Merrick not only does he have to conquer his maleness to show her he loves her but he has to overcome being the King of the Unblessed.


    Which character – as performed by Ross Pendleton – was your favorite?

    All of the goblins, trolls, and sprights! First of all they were brilliant characters. Second, Ross Pendleton has an exceptional grasp on how a fairytale character should sound. His voice was pleasant and he articulated words well. I was blown away with how he could remember which accent, tone, and even how each creature breathed. Outstanding!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Juliana had a habit of asking for things, but as soon as it was granted denying that it was what she wanted. She was spoiled at home in Bellemare by her family. So when she was suddenly thrust on her adventure she wasn't used to doing things that took very much work. Then she would whine like a small child who had just been told no for the first time. When things got rough she would say she didn't mean what she asked for. It was very frustrating for me that she couldn't see what Merrick was doing for her. When Juliana...I don't want to spoil it. So I will just say, when Juliana decided to stop letting her human eyes see and saw with her heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to the other books in this series. I especially look forward to seeing how Merrick and Juliana do now that she has emotionally matured a bit.
