Publisher's Summary

The charm of spending the Christmas holidays in South Wales, with its crumbling castles and ancient myths, seems the perfect distraction from the nightmares that have plagued literary agent Lyn Ravenshaw since the loss of her baby five years ago. Instead she meets an emotionally fragile young widow who's convinced that Lyn's recurring dreams have drawn her to Castle Farm for an important purpose - and she's running out of time. With the help of a reclusive, brooding playwright, Lyn begins to untangle the mystery and is pulled into a world of Celtic legends, dangerous prophecies, and a child destined for greatness.

    "Amazing story teller, she makes you want to step inside every single story"

    The only problem I have with Susanna Kearsley is the amount of time I have to wait for another story! I've loved every single one and can't wait for the next. It's gotten so that I don't even read the "about" section and just flat out purchase it.

    Amazing story teller, she makes you want to step inside every single story.

    Story
    "I've liked others Susannah Kearsley books better."

    I ended up reading it and not listening to the audible. I found the English drawl a little much. They all sounded like Sloan Rangers and like every thing was a dreadful bore.

    I have read all of this author's books and wasn't as keen on this as some of the others. Mariana is one of my favorite books ever, I've read it numerous times. I needed more meat on the bones.

    "Good but..."

    I love this author's stories but this one was just "meh". Makes me sad to say this because I've listened to all of her books and expect so much now.

    "Wonderful audiobook"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this reading of Named of the Dragon. The story sweeps you in and Katherine Kellgren's delightful voice doubles the pleasure.

    "great story"

    I really enjoy all the books i have read written by Susanna Kearsley. This was not my favorite, but I did enjoy it quite a bit. For some reason I was a little bothered by the narrator in this atory, but not badly enough to not finish the story. In spite of that I would still listen again.

    Story
    "Not Kearsley's best"

    The story dragged a bit, and the characters were marginally likeable. I was able to finish it, but kept waiting for something exciting to happen. My issue is that I had a hard time with the dream sequences, I struggled trying to determine if she was dreaming or not. Also, the main character didn't actually say many of her words aloud, but was thinking them and that was a little difficult to determine. The narration was terrible. In some scenes, she was yelling as if on a stage production. It was very off putting. She didn't do a good job distinguishing internal thoughts vs. external dialog. The accents were terrible. Sorry, I love Susanna Kearsley books, just not this one.

    Story
    "Cozy mystery"

    Typical of the other Susanna Kearsley mysteries. Introduces you to a group of characters and adds what we feel to be a little supernatural historical mystery. I enjoy her books, as they are just relaxing to read. I didn't care for the narrator on this one though. Her characters voices didn't coincide at all with the author's description, sounding much older and very prudish.
