It's hard to pinpoint one best thing, but I like learning more about Roarke's past.
Again, hard to pick just one. All the characters mesh with each other and play off each other so well. Roarke is awesome, but what is he without Eve? Peabody and McNabb. Feeney! Summerset! Mavis! Trina!
She manages to articulate the characters so well that I know who is speaking even without dialogue tags. Even the two male Irish voices are distinct. Excellent job.
The Shadow and the Star has always been one of my ultimate favorite books. I love Samuel's angst, how he drove himself to be fast and deadly, yet struggled with his lust. The way the author showed his progress from lust to love was amazing. Leda is possibly my favorite Kinsale heroine, innocent, naïve, bound by her moral code, yet steadfast in her principles. Mr. Boulton did a beautiful job of showing both the hero and the heroine. Bravo!
I've loved the Amelia Peabody series since I read the first book 20 years ago. The narrator nailed the characters. Amelia's full steam ahead attitude, Emerson's bombast, and Rameses piping voice pulled me into the story. It was like listening to a one woman show!
