    Overall

    This woman does such a remarkable job with all these Anne Perry Thomas & Charlotte Pitt books, I just have to write a comment. The author spends more time in this series of her books than in others reading expressions and tone of voice in the characters the Point-of-View character is studying, and Davinia has a way of capturing all of that. She is rather remarkable in her talent, and her voice is very pleasant, taking on different tones and accents for the characters. I really enjoy her reading, which is more like acting, of these books and I intend on going through the entire series, they are so well done.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    In this installment, Temeraire and Captain Lawrence take a journey into what may be the end of their relationship. There is a constant threat of seperation, but also a peek into what life was like for the Chinese in the early 1800's in this alternate universe. Very interesting and compelling, I would highly reccomend this book and series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Temerarie and Lawrence are my favorite, they are the leads and always interesting.

    Story
    Would you listen to His Majesty's Dragon again? Why?

    Yes. I ended up buying the next two books in this series and I love them. The author does a great job, very enjoyable, and the reader has just the right tone.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked best the relationships between the Lawrence and Temeraire, but also between all the characters.


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does all the voices, but the voice of the 2 lead characters are especially right on target.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I haven't the time to hear it all at once.


    Any additional comments?

    I've highly reccomended it to others.

  • March Upcountry: Prince Roger Series, Book 1

    Story
    (688)

    Roger Ramius Sergei Chiang MacClintock was young, handsome, athletic, an excellent dresser, and third in line for the Throne of Man. So it wasn't surprising that he became spoiled, self-centered, and petulant. After all, what else did he have to do with his life?

    Euryleia says: "Lots of fun!"
    "Prince Roger introduced"
    Overall

    Not as dynamic and compelling as Mr. Weber's Honor Harrington series, still this first book in the Prince Roger series introduces us to a young man who lives in a very interesting galaxy. The story draws us in more as we encounter the characters who are in his orbit and the inhabitants of the planet they all find themselves on. The books ends rather abruptly.

    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King enjoys immense popularity and a resounding chorus of critical acclaim for her exquisite mysteries. The God of the Hive continues the thread King began in The Language of Bees, in which Mary Russell and her famous husband, Sherlock Holmes, face trouble with Scotland Yard and the deadliest of adversaries.

    connie says: "Imaginative and engrossing listen"
    "Holmes & Holmes & Russell never fail to deliver"
    Overall

    Once again Laurie R. King guides us into the life of Mary Russell, Sherlock Holmes and Mycroft Holmes, as the trio, along with family and friends, are hunted and manipulated by the gray threat they can sense, but not identify. Into this comes the Green Man, a charming and mysterious stranger who comes to the rescue when least expected.
