It's in a category along with Deborah Harkness' books, Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night.
I enjoyed that the author historical facts into the fantasy in a seamless way to evoke a truly possible existence! I can't wait for the next book from this author!
I waited for months for this last book and now had listened to it three times!! Jennifer Ikeda was THE perfect reader to embue the characters with life!!
Deinitely in the top 25%
Linnet & John.
I've read 11 of 12 of the Sookie Stackhouse books and felt a huge chasm opening up....no more Sookie books! :( So in a chat with one of the Audible specialists, I found out about Phillippa Bornikova! The only problem is that there's only ONE book!! Please, please write more Linet Books!!
I did. I'd spent so much time with these characters that I wanted to experience them again.
I absolutely love that this book was such a long book. I enjoyed every rich detail and description, the entire building of this world, characters and lives was spell-binding.
I am so happy that there was both a male AND a female narrators....not just a male adjusting his voice to mimic that of a female and vice versa. It really made the story work!
I would indeed!! These are characters who are entirely believable...though unique. Also, Harris has a great way of getting to the "meat" of each character and working with narrators who are able to sink into each persona.
She successfully brings each character to life in a way that just isn't possible when reading. I now identify Harper with this narrator in the same way that Johanna Parker IS Sookie Stackhouse.
I just about did!!
It's one of the best...completely gripping!
I enjoyed the battle between the brilliance of good and evil.
He is able to "cast" a character through changes in his voice and able to step out of the "narrator's" position...as an external force, and get deep into your mind!
Iles' ability to seize your complete attention is truly legendary. There was also a perfect matching of story to narrator which resulted in a TOTAL experience in just the way Iles intended.
Sleep No More.
both primary characters
I HAD to listen to it at EVERY POSSIBLE MOMENT!
The plot was intriguing and definitely kept my attention throughout.
I was curious about this character as I am addicted to Sookie Stackhouse. Harris could never keep up with my unsatiable desire to read Sookie books! I thoroughly enjoyed my introduction to this new character, Harper, and her brother, Tolliver.
It was mind candy: entertaining, easy to identify with the characters, well-spun story.
At first, I found it difficult to hear because the narrator's voice is quite low. Took at little while to get comfy.
Excellent narrator who brought these characters, past & present, into credible, exciting existence. Can't wait for Book 3.
Diana. The process of her learning about herself and her powers is excellently portrayed.
Absolutely. Did not want this book to end.
