Lots of action and predicaments for Temeraire and crew to escape from.
Simon Vance is a master--he has so many voices that are perfect for each character! His "accents" are great.
It made me frustrated when I got to the end. I wasn't ready for it to be over, and I wanted to read more about the next adventures! It is one of those books where one says "Oh no! It's over?"
Can hardly wait for the next Temeraire book.
I love the complexities of the characters; together with the action parts, this is a great book. Khristine Hvam's masterful narration serves to add to the quality.
Jane of course is my favorite character. She is a very tough heroine, but very human in spite of Beast living inside. I love the way Faith Hunter peels away the layers to reveal her flaws.
It was the moment she shared in the sweat lodge when she learned about Cherokee warrior women.
It was when Molly decided to live.
The only thing I hate about Faith Hunter's Skinwalker series is finishing one, and knowing it will be months and months before the next one. I hope hope hope Khristine Hvam will continue to narrate; she makes the characters and scenes truly come alive.
Yes. It has been among my favorite books, read and reread many times, and I was soo happy to see it on audible
My favorite moment was when Tiger finally realized Del was for real.
I liked nothing about his performance--it was terrible. His voice is totally wrong for Tiger; he sounds like some city song-and-dance man speaking to those he considers ignorant and impressionable clods. He would be better doing Music Man. His voice for Del is not much better; he simply adopted what he must consider a northern Europe accent. I just hope he isn't used for future Tiger and Del books. He came very close to ruining the entire audiobook. I hope people won't judge the book by the narrator.
It made me cheer many times.
Jennifer Roberson's Swordancer series is among the best in the genre. I'm very glad I had a chance to listen to it on my ipod. I hope there are more, and I hope we have a better narrator for future books.
I like all the Jane Yellowrock audio editions better than the print version because, good as the print versions are, reader Khristine Hvam adds so much to the listen.
I love the intricacies of Jane's personality and growth as the books progress.
She is a great reader, and this is up there with her best.
Yes, it was hard to make myself stop listening, even when tasks were calling me.
I always cannot wait until the next Jane Yellowrock book comes out, and this one was no exception. Go Faith! Go Jane!
I love the character of Jane Yellowrock. She is every hero you ever had.
There is no comparison. Jane is the ultimate.
I've only heard her with the Jane Yellowrock series, and she is a master! She is a perfect Jane and also perfect for all the other various characters in the series. No one else could do justice to the series, and I hope she continues to be the narrator for future Jane Yellowrock books.
I did want to. Listened to part of it on a 400 mile trip and then more on the return. Although my rule is to listen to audio books only in the car, I could not help myself, and I finished listening when I got home. (as I did with Jane #4)
Write faster Faith--we need the next installment!
I love Jane's character!
The most memorable for me was when "beast meets were-cat."
Khristine Hvam is a master! Her voice is perfect for Jane, and she is very adept at the various accents of the residents of New Orleans.
Beast is Back!
The entire concept of Jane Yellowrock is so fascinating--I'm just sorry there are not more at this time. I want to say "Write faster!"
One of my favorite books of all time. It makes the Arthur legend into history.
Mary Stewart's version of the Arthur legend comes across as how it really was. She incorporates all the myths and legends into one story that seems to be Truth. Her characters are flawless.
I have not listened to any other of Nicol Williamson's performances. This one is excellent.
The Crystal Cave is perfect for this book; no other title would suffice.
I wish Audible would remake Mary Stewart's Arther trilogy unabridged. So much is lost in this abridged version.
I could not get into the book at all, could not make myself care what happened.
Liked none of the characters.
No, it's the only audio book I've not been able to make myself finish.
I love Faith Hunter's books, and Blood Cross is among the best.
Jane Yellowrock is unique in urban fantasy; she is tough and gritty but has a vulnerable side as well. This is more than an action thriller and character development is excellent.
I have only listened to her as she performed the Jane Yellowrock series; she is one of the best readers I have ever heard, right up there with Simon Vance. While the series is very well written, Khristine Hvam's performance makes them very special.
Jane and Beast are back!
I purchase Audible books to listen to while I am driving and generally save them for trips, which are frequent. Faith Hunter's books are the only ones I have actually sat and listened to in my living room because I can't wait for another trip to roll around.
Nohting disappointed me. Great ending for the Pax story.
Will listen again to Mystic and Rider, narrated by Jennifer Van Dyck, written by Sharon Shinn.
Jennifer Van Dyck was great--she has narrated other of my favorite books. She did pronounce some names differently than I would have done, but overall she is a great narrator.
Every character had his/her own fit, and all are needed to move the story along.
