"Fans of Beverley's Company of Rogues series will truly enjoy this delightful adventure." (Booklist)
This has always been one of my Jo Bev's favorite books and I was delighted to see it [finally] as an Audible.com offering. USUALLY, this narrator is not a favorite of mine, however, I must say that she did a MUCH better job narrating this book and I hope that she continues in this same vein.
Now, when is Audible going to bring out "Three Heroes", "Christmas Angel, and "Forbidden" to round out the Company of Rogues series?
I Really liked this book. It was my first Jo Beverly Novel, and I listened to it because our friend Anne Flosnik narratored it - anything she reads has proven to be good. There were great characters and the writer used great adjectives to give you ideas of who the people were and I felt I was sitting right in the middle of many of the places that story took place. I only wish when authors are doing series that all of them are on audio. I'd like to read the Dragons Bride but the tought of Simon Pebble reading it is a turn off. I have listened to some that he does and can tolerate it but Its hard after listening to a female narrator as good as Anne.
I enjoy Jo Beverley. However; be prepared to have a lengthy story line that just isn't necessary to make her books good listens. This book was somewhat like that, but it still did keep my interest. I found it very entertaining and visual in it's verbal description. I was quite drawn in by the story. I also enjoy listening Anne Flosnik in some of her reads. This one was done well.
I listened to it straight through and it was like watching a movie for me.
