I must say that I love, adore many of the Jayne Anne Krentz Books, but I found myself cringing while listening to this story or falling asleep to "The Lost Night". I typically adore the paranormal in Jayne's stories. I also enjoy the plot replayed over and over again -- that of two powerful talents finding each other. I have not managed to finish listening to this title though I've managed to fly solo to the USA and back to Sweden and take a 11 hour train trip within Sweden... again, solo (meaning no children to watch at the time). I simply must not be a Harmony fan. It is a pity. This was my first audible listen, and a treat to myself. But it one that I could not manage.
I don't know how to be fair to Joyce Bean in this review. After-all, she portrays the messenger in this dynamic. I had a super difficult time enjoying her voice when listening about Harry Sebastian. I cannot distinguish if this is because Harry's lines were simply not pleasing for me to hear or if it were the portrayal of the lines.
What is there not to love about this story? I truly enjoy the performance by Jennifer Ikeda. I sometimes get lost in the flowery descriptions by Deborah Harkness... but thankfully audible has a 30s back space so to speak. I used it so often with this story, because I had to hear it again. I finished the story today and I will buy the 2nd book immediately! Thank you Deborah Harkness & Jennifer Ikeda!! Thank you audible. Love it!
