    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.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Dark Witch?

    Too much like previous stories -- felt like a rehash of old themes, and we're used to Ms. Roberts coming up with fresh ideas.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    Yes. This was okay, but I had expected better based on her record. However, I will not buy anything performed by this narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was dreadful and absolutely annoying. Simple reading would have been a thousand times better than the breathless dramatics... If she had confined the drama to the conversational bits it might have been marginally better, but I doubt it


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Witch?

    We don't need the bedroom scenes


    Any additional comments?

    As this is part of a series I'll probably buy the next, but NOT if the next ones have this narrator, I tend to re-listen to stories, especially to refresh my memory before the next book comes out, but don't think I could stomach this one twice. Get a better narrator.
