  • Tigana

    Story

    Tigana is the magical story of a beleaguered land struggling to be free. It is the tale of a people so cursed by the black sorcery of a cruel, despotic king that even the name of their once-beautiful homeland cannot be spoken or remembered.

    But after years of devastation, a handful of courageous men and women embark upon a dangerous crusade to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the dark world the brilliance of a long-lost name: Tigana.

    "Possibly my favorite audio listen"
    Overall

    I loved reading Tigana, and I loved listening to it almost as much. Simon Vance is a good narrator. Kay really develops his characters in this novel, unlike in Last Light of the Sun, which I also just finished, and was very disappointed with. Any Kay fan should enjoy this audiobook.

    The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her - not necessarily in that order.

    Story

    I've really been enjoying this series as a fun, not too deep, summer distraction. Even though the narrator makes the occasional pronunciation mistake in the previous books, I've enjoyed her performance overall. Living in Northern Michigan, however, I have a BIG problem with her narration of this novel. Since a lot of the story takes place on or near Mackinac Island, she really should have learned the correct pronunciation of the name. Mackinac is the French spelling, while Mackinaw is the English spelling, but both are pronounced the same way. Every time she said "Mackinack" instead of the correct pronunciation of "Mackinaw" I winced. And that was many, many times. So, if you're from Michigan, or just know what the correct pronunciation should be, you might want to read this installment instead of listen to it. It might save you some pain.
