    Story
    (1473)

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    What disappointed you about Dark Witch?

    Although the story feels like a repeat of other Nora Roberts trilogys, I could get past that because she throws in some new twists. I have both the Kindle edition and the Audible version so I can read at home and listen at work. That being said, I'll stick to the Kindle after suffering through 2 hours of the audio at work today. This narrator is terrible and that's being kind. She is over dramatic, yells for no reason, has a horrible Irish accent, and all the female Irish characters sounded like old ladies while the American protagonist sounded about 14. I was amazed to find out she has won awards for her audio performance. This is my first review and I felt strongly enough about the performance to write it.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Haven't finished the book yet.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Katherine Kellgren’s performances?

    No


    What character would you cut from Dark Witch?

    Nora Roberts doesn't really put too many extraneous characters in her book so they all gotta stay.
