    It was so easy to follow the story went along a great path and finially just when you thought it was coming to an ending a second path appeared and the story all pulled in another direction. Hope that there is a second book. Can't wait to hear it if there is.

  • A Clash of Kings (Part Two): Book 2 of A Song of Ice and Fire

    This is Part Two of Book 2 of the A Song of Ice and Fire Series. George R. R. Martin’s superb fantasy epic continues in consummate style as bloodshed and alchemy lay waste the Seven Kingdoms. This second volume of A Song of Ice and Fire is unabridged and split into two parts. The Iron Throne once united the Sunset Lands, but King Robert is dead, his widow is a traitor to his memory, and his surviving brothers are set on a path of war amongst themselves.

    The book flows straight on from the first. I couldn't wait to start it and when I did start I couldn't stop listening. Sad that some of my favourite characters are no long in the story. But it is still a wonderful read.

    What a great book. Can't wait for the next book. Love the way that George RR Martin puts his chapters into different characters names. You soon love or hate certain characters. Roy Dotrice is there any voice the man can't do. Look if you want a great book to listen to this would be a great one. Lanuage is a bit strong, so you might not want to listen to this on and Ipod dock.

    These books are great I have listened to all of them once I heard Virgin River I had to have more until I got to book 17. The narrator Therese Plummer did a great job Mens voices and womens voices were fantastic. After you finish listening to the series you will know where everyone lives. Thank you Robyn Carr for a wonderful story line.
    You must take the time to listen. Five stars all round.

    Story

    I have listen to alot of books. And this is tradgic. Having two narrators is not a new thing. It would by nice not to have pauses between voice changes. And this is an english story with American accents. The narrators seem to stumble over the words. I am writing this and I have only listen to 45 mins of the book. It is a shame, I think that the book would have been good if it had other narrator.

    When London editor Georgia Abbott comes to Sydney to work on Glow, a glossy woman's magazine, she has high hopes for a bright new start. Leaving behind a broken heart (her own) and a philandering ex-fiance, she's looking forward to immersing herself in the Tim Tam-eating sisterhood of woman's mags. Not to mention being whisked off into the dusty Australian sunset by a suntanned, Akubra-hatted fantasy man.

    So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity. Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either... After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood.
