This author was able to weave a story full of folklore, legends, true history, love, pain, and sex in a way that did not interfere with the flow. I enjoyed learning about the folklore and true history as much as living the romance through the absolutely fantastic voice of Dennis Kleinman.
Bethoc's transformation was my absolute favorite part.
Dennis Kleinman has a warm voice, and is able to convincingly act out the different characters, without making the females sound like shrews. His performance, as usual, makes one feel as they are listening to a play, not just someone reading a book. Very well done on the Scottish brogue.
I teared up when Bethoc finally realized she was wrong about the death of her father and betrothed.
I enjoyed the story and loved the narration of this audiobook.
I would place this book in the middle range of all of my audiobooks. Having said that, I have listened to over 300 audiobooks, and this is one I will remember.
I loved that this story was not at all predictable. I listen/read a very popular mystery series obsessively, and Ms Henderson completely surprised me in the end.
While I really enjoyed Steve Marvel's voice, it is smooth and not distracting, I really did not like how he did Evelyn and Henry's voices. It is difficult to imagine she is raising her voice at Alex when the narrator is doing a high pitched whisper.
The ending of the book brought me to tears. Without giving storyline away, it is completely worth the journey to get there.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was my first by this author, but it will not be the last. I anxiously await the rest of this trilogy. Despite my reservations about Evelyn's voice, I do hope Ms Henderson stays with the same narrator.
Yes. Loved this story, loved the narration and it is a Whispersync special too.
Ella is strong and steadfast, even in her insecurities.
This is a toss up I loved how well she went between Leo's British and Colin's American accents.
I have a new fave female narrator.
I ended up turning off the narration and just read this book. The book was as enjoyable as the rest of the series, in print
The narrator, who also narrated the rest of this series, emphasized every other word...to ad nausium. It became so frustrating, I could not finish listening. I am not sure why the over emphasized words, when she only did this in the last two books, but it should have been dealt with before release.
Not worth the money
I loved this story for its uniqueness. The story had just enough intrigue and was not just another "fluff Regency".
The minor characters were just as strong as the main characters.
I cannot say enough good things about this narration. It was as if I were listening to a stage performance of the story. Definitely not just someone reading a book to me.
I did listen to this book in one sitting. I had to run to the store, and just took it with me.
I cannot wait for further collaborations between this author and these two fantastic narrators. Thank you for taking me into the world of Ren and Lia!
The heroine was very consistent. Probably my favorite of Ms Kinsale's heroines.
The romance never really developed. The "hero" continued to punish the heroine all the way to the end, when he had always been the untrustworthy of the pair.
Nicholas Boulton is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators. One really feels the emotions when listening to him
No to both. But it did anger me toward the hero all the way to the last.
This is not whisper sync enabled. So, I had to send quite a bit of time trying to find my place when going between the ebook and the audio. So much so, that it became intolerable
I was not disappointed in te story, but in having to read it at the same time as I listened to it
Ms Bartlett needs to learn how to read. She repeatedly made huge mistakes in words, which changed the meaning of a sentence. She pauses when there is no punctuation justifying it, and Fails to do so when there is. The only difference between characters voices is shrill to ear piercing shrill. The reading is stiff, and ncomfortable at times. I ultimately ended my torture and just read the book. I would be really upset if I had paid more than $1.99 for ths audio. I must assume there are directors, or at least someone who actually listens to the audio before releasing it, they did not do their jobs.
I would not have cut anything, as I believe an unabridged recording should be jut that. I do think they should have been a little more concerned about the integrity of the story though.
A few classes on public reading. Maybe some poetry reading....
