Brass and Bone | [Cynthia Gael]

Brass and Bone

"Being Simon Thorne, friend and collaborator to Lady Abigail Moran, isn't easy. Yes, being a daring thief does have its charms. But I still haven't convinced Abigail that she loves me, and thievery, for all the romantical writers say of it, is not the way to wealth. Especially if Abigail insists we continuously repair the airship with our ill-gotten gains."

Publisher's Summary

"Being Simon Thorne, friend and collaborator to Lady Abigail Moran, isn't easy. Yes, being a daring thief does have its charms. But I still haven't convinced Abigail that she loves me, and thievery, for all the romantical writers say of it, is not the way to wealth. Especially if Abigail insists we continuously repair the airship with our ill-gotten gains.

"So when an old friend summons us to his estate and offers us a daring job with a hefty paycheck, we're happy to accept. The mission: use our airship to transport secret cargo halfway across the globe. Oh, and we mustn't forget to take along the witch and her sinister keeper. A witch more beguiling than expected and her keeper - or is that companion? - with secrets darker than one could imagine.

"Alas. Perhaps I have finally bitten off more than I can chew...."

    "Brass & Bone"

    Great listening! The narrator was excellent! Her use of different accents and her ability to convey a wide range of emotions brought the characters to life! The subtle way in which she expressed Simon's 'asides' kept me chuckling throughout. I laughed out loud more than once! :)

    "Weak story but wonderful narrator"

    As a child, I loved to listen to stories narrated by Claire Bloom. Since then, I have rarely heard another actor narrate a story with the same clarity, richness of voice, or diversity of character expression... until now. Amanda Cobb is brilliant, and I look forward to hearing her voice bring more stories to life. How about some of the classics?

    "A fun listen"

    My mom used to read us stories like this, with a different voice for each character. It's still my favorite to find an audio book read like that. It makes it so much more like going on an adventure. Definitely got sucked into the story. Has this narrator done other books?

    "outstanding narration!"
    What did you love best about Brass and Bone?

    I'm only a few chapters in, but the narrator's performance really brings the story to life! I'm not usually a fan of romance novels, but am a huge sucker for steampunk-inspired storylines.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Cobb is a rising star. You can hear a treasure trove of vast theatrical experience in her performance.

    "Average story, but read beautifully."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book was a nice escape on my daily commute to work. A little bit of a bore at times, but pleasant on the whole.


    What about Amanda Cobb’s performance did you like?

    The narrator brought a lot of depth to the characters, and I dare say, made them more interesting. I'm not sure if I would have finished this book had I been reading it on my own. The narrator saved this one.

    "Romantic adventure, rousingly narrated"

    A friend turned me on to this story, and I was pleasantly surprised. Author spins a good adventure tale, and the narrator brings a lot of life and depth to its telling. Loved the dialects and the sense of humor in her voice. Plucky, fun stuff.

    "Great for Commuters!"

    Typically, I enjoy reading only non-fiction. However, I recently started a new leg of life's journey as a commuter using the TTC in Toronto. A friend suggest I start listening to audio books and recommended allowing myself to get lost in Brass & Bone. It sure helps my commute to be able to tune out of my surroundings and into a story that I can jump in and out of. The narrator's voice is very engaging and enjoyable to listen to. Knowing that Ms. Cobb is doing both voices is quite impressive. I would love to hear her do other works.

    "Phenomenal..."

    In addition to a wonderful story, I was absolutely delighted by the creativity of the Narrator and her amazing range of characters! I look forward to hearing her work again in the very near future.
    Brava, Ms. Cobb... Brava.

    "An unexpected pleasure"

    I had never heard of this book but came across it while searching for a different audiobook. Nevertheless, I was hooked within the first 15 minutes. The narrator's voice and her varying vocal expressions made me forget briefly that I was listening to the same person portraying both leads. I look forward to listening to this book again from start to finish on my next road trip, and I will definitely be watching out for her next audiobook.

    "Wish she had narrated the Harry Potter books!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Brass and Bone to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I could listen to this narrator all day. Her voice was like honey.
