Wonderfully human characters and interesting story. Not what you'd expect.
Definitely the djinni
I think it is perfectly named.
I highly recommend it!
Yes. Action-packed from the very beginning.
Father Jacob. He is smart and self-deprecating and just plain heroic
Thank goodness Kirby concluded this trilogy. His voices and inflections are fantastic!
I'd like more!
get. the. mongrels.
Great continuation of the story. But seemed to drag at times.
Hawk for sure!
Not having read the printed page, I can't say definitively. But the narrator was phenomenal!!
Mary Abacus receiving her boys.
His ability to seamlessly go between characters and his use of intonation for each character was great!
Wonderful story and terrific telling of it. Could not wait for my monthly credit to come and had to pay for the second book :)
NO. Penman's writing is so crisp, so clear, so colorful. This is the first audio of hers I've listened to and I was disappointed. King Richard sounded like Thurston Howell III on painkillers and Richard's queen Berengaria's voice was so simpering and insipid I wanted to scream every time she had dialogue.
Joanna of course.
No thank you.
Eleanor of course. What an amazing woman she was!!!
WORST? narraTOR. eVER!
Listening to the narration. He pronounced everyone's name completely differently than the first narrator. His inflection was horrible. He put an accent/emphasis on the last syllable of too many words (as if that made it an actual accent) and made statements into questions. The dragons sounded drugged. In all, it sounded like he couldn't decide if the characters were drunken Scots, Jamaicans, Germans or Frenchmen.
He could have listened to the narrator of the first book. He very nearly ruined the book for me.
The story itself was interesting. I liked the political intrigue and multi-dimensional characters and alliances.
