Wonderful story and beautifully narrated. I was transported into a different land - and resented having to lever myself back into the "real" world when I had to turn it off. The character's different voices, accents, and names were quite clear. Not sure how they did that!
A wonderfully old fashioned novel with a very contemporary theme. A woman discovers her power and begins to learn how to use it. Yes, it's all dressed up charmingly with witches, vampires, castles, romance, and a sprinkling of history - and, like the Harry Potter books, uses the timeless allegory of the orphaned child - but I still found a great deal of resonance with the ongoing themes of my own very prosaic life.
Escapist without being dumb...too many digressions sometimes but I was sad when it ended.
