    The wizard Margle the Horrendous takes special pride in never killing his enemies. Instead, he transforms them into various accursed forms and locks them away in his castle. It's Nessy's duty to tend this castle. Its a lot of work, but she manages, taking pride in housekeeping talents that keep the castle from collapsing into chaos. But when Margle suddenly dies, everything begins to unravel.

    "Good Story; Ruined by Imitation Voices"
    Overall

    The story is entertaining but if you dislike a narrator impersonating voices avoid this one.

    "The Narration Dropped My Rating From a 5 to a 3"
    Overall

    I am a huge Dick Francis fan and have read Shattered several times in print. I was however extremely disappointed in the narration of this audiobook; the natural ebb and flow of the plot and build of tension is lost by distinct enunciation of words and phrases. The narration felt halting and severely undermined my enjoyment of this book. While I will continue to purchase Dick Francis novels, I will avoid this narrator in fictional works.

    Story
    (2)

    Boothenay Irons, to her own bewilderment, is the possessor of a mysterious power. By profession a gunsmith, there is something within her that answers to the history held within an antique gun. Not only can she hear its story, she is sometimes able to go back in time and interact with its history. Blood, as she comes to realize, is the road that carries her between times. Her strange ability began as a teenager while restoring an old gun. She slipped into a trance and witnessed an event in the weapon's history. Later she was drawn closer and found herself back in time where the guns story was unfolding.

    Michele says: "Poor Recording"
    "Good story; poor sound quality"
    Overall

    While the story and narration are very good some may find the sound quality distracting. There is a slight echo for the entire recording and another recoding is fully audible for approximately a minute.
