Not really. I did not care for the voice and it was not formatted correctly. The narrator would say Chapter 15 but it was reading on my device as chapter 23. Things like that.
I liked the history about the cave.
Baby voice for females who were strong characters.
Beginning was exciting.
Sweet contemporary romance
When Derrick discovers Brielle and she explains that she is a fallen star. I love how she says she is from Orion's belt, especially when we know that Orion's belt has special meaning in Derrick's life.
The narration is a male voice, but I loved how he portrayed Brielle. Amber wrote her character so well, that she really came across in Patrick's narration.
Its like a Hallmark movie.
This was a charming portrayal of dreams and goals and how sometimes they don't always live up to our expectations. I also enjoyed the setting as Humboldt County is one of my favorite places. I could picture Trinidad Head and the town setting. The author did a great job.
I loved Nancy's knowledge and portrayal of Roman culture during the first century AD. She did a terrific job of bringing to life the horror and plight of the gladiators and early Christians. How they survived that and still remained faithful to God is a testimony in itself.
I loved the romance between the hero and heroine. It comes late in the story so I won't mention names. The long wait was the only trying issue for me. Poor Jonathan never caught a break until the romance started.
The romantic scenes were definitely my favorite, but then again I'm a lover of romance novels.
Yes, the whole time period and life of a gladiator was brought to life by Ms Gimball. It was a difficult book to set aside so consequently I didn't get all my chores done while listening to it. Her portrayal of the times was gripping and quite impressive.
I would recommend this book for an exciting and gripping experience of the life of a gladiator in first century Rome. But be aware that Ms. Gimball doesn't hold back on describing the violence of that era. I really liked Joseph's portrayal of Jonathan. His narration for the male characters was excellent.
