    Story
    "Not a bad sequel"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. I enjoyed the first book of this series, and found this one quite enjoyable. Her characters are exciting, and I look forward to part 3.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of the different characters you get to meet and follow as they wield their various powers. The time travel that took place in the story provided intrigue and danger.


    What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was versatile which brought life to the various characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to give away too much about the book, so I will say the time travel and family reunions were powerfully moving and my favorite parts.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book of the series.

    "Couldn't wait to get my hands on it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Shadow of Night the most enjoyable?

    I love the narrator for this book. I love the voices and different accents used. You never have any trouble knowing which character is speaking.


    What other book might you compare Shadow of Night to and why?

    I call this series the adult version of Twlight.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    This book wasn't as good to me as the first. But it had to fill holes that were missing in the first book and new developments for the next.

    Story
    "Don't Want This Book to End"
    Where does Shadow of Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a long wait for Shadow of Night and it's more than equal to Discovery of Witches. This book wraps you in a world of magic. It incorporates history, art, alchemy, romance, and adventure. The words flow from the reader in the voices of the characters. Jennifer Ikeda is part of the experience of this book.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not as good as the first in the series, but a good listen. The performance was solid, the storyline good, but wrapped in many details.

    "A good listen for my comute..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow of Night to be better than the print version?

    I really like Jennifer Ikeda's narration. The story was not as good as Discovery of Witches. It was still entertaining. I would listen to another of Deborah's books.


    What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

    She has a great voice that let the story come alive.
