Publisher's Summary

As the 19th century draws to a close, James Weston, Earl of Falmouth, is dying along with it. Despite living in an age of airships and automatons, even London's finest physicians cannot cure the young man's ailing heart. His last hope lies in retrieving a powerful artifact from the remote island home of an eccentric scientist's daughter.

Elspeth Shaw prefers her solitary life to the tragic results that come from mixing in society. Elspeth is cursed: every mortal being who forms an attachment to her dies a horrible death. Yet when the doomed Lord Falmouth arrives in search of the very artifact that blights her, she hasn't the will to refuse. But the price for cheating death may be more than any human can pay....

    "Very good until it suddenly stopped..."

    This was a good book/listen right up to the moment that they said "To be Continued..." I'm a pretty understanding listener, but had I known this was just the first part I may not have bought the book. There are series books, in which one story follows another, which is fine. But this is not a complete story, and does not have even the immediate resolution of a series-book. This is actually the second time this has happened from the same publisher, and I'd kind of like a heads-up in the future when this is the first part of a story that may or may not continue. On that point: "Celine" on goodreads was good enough to ask the publisher about that and reported that "they told me that the second part in the series is being currently written, and it will probably release in 2013" which I appreciated, but it isn't a done deal either.

    Which is all somewhat unfortunate, as the story was good until the sudden stop. The voice of the performer (Kate Fallon) grated me somewhat initially, but I got used to it very shortly. In all fairness, the performer's voice matches the female character very well and thus was likely a deliberate choice: I can see the dreamy, slightly jarring cadence come out of a character with that background. Her male voices are definitely decent, and she seems to have a good range.

    "Most enjoyable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Heart of Perdition to be better than the print version?

    I am somewhat new to Audible books but found this format thoroughly enjoyable. The narration was clear and totally in character.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Fallon – was your favorite?

    Elspeth was performed in a believable and pleasing manner - heartfelt and plausible.


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

    As a novice, I needed several visits to listen to the book in it's entirety.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this narration of a book has piqued my interest in others.
