    Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's favorite pistol-packing, condom-carrying bounty hunter, is back and on the trail of a revenge-seeking waitress who's skipped bail. With the help of 73-year-old Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker Lula, a transvestite musician named Sally Sweet, and the all-too-hospitable, all-too-sexy Joe Morelli, Stephanie might just catch her woman.

    Mike says: "Narrator was great!"
    "Disappointing narrator"
    Overall

    I loved reading all of the Stephanie Plumb novels and was looking forward to the audio version, but was disappointed in the narrator. Her portrayal of Stephanie was rather asexual instead of the babe that Stephanie definitely is, and her attempts to portray the men sounded like, well, a woman trying to sound like a man. Most narrators are able to pull this off more convincingly. This version distracted me from the story, at least as I had imagined it.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Story
    What did you like best about Shadow of Night? What did you like least?

    I loved the first book, A Discovery of Witches, and enjoyed the continuation of the story of Diana and Matthew's adventure, but have had a VERY hard time finishing this story. There are way too many characters and the author does not take the time to develop more than a few of them. Each time I start listening, I have to back up several chapters to review who's who and what's happening or I'm lost. I've actually started the story from the beginning more than once and I'm starting to wonder just how much I care. I really want to like this book, and want to listen to all three in the trilogy, but if this one had been first, it would have been the last for me.


    Has Shadow of Night turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I hope hot


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Ikeda – was your favorite?

    I liked her Diana very much in the first book, but she seemed rather lifeless in this book. I don't think it was the narrator's fault, however.


    Could you see Shadow of Night being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I suppose, but I'd like to see someone I've never heard of in the major roles.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Royal Flush to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, as I did not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I find British people fascinating for some reason and loved all the characters.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all the


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't know.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is fun for a silly escape. It has an interesting perspective of a rather ordinary young woman with access to the Queen, pressure to marry some other royal,but who can't afford to live the lifestyle that the rest of her family expects.
