1333 A.D. - The lovely and educated Lady Aubrielle Grace di Witney is what is kindly termed an unmanageable woman. Her uncle, the Earl of Wrexham, has been awarded custody of his niece because her mother can no longer handle the head-strong beauty. Like a coward, the earl abdicates his duties to his most powerful knight, Sir Kenneth St. Hever with the instructions to transform her into a submissive lady. Aubrielle and Kenneth are at odds from the onset; Kenneth expects obedience and Aubrielle is less than compliant. When the battles die down and a strange, wonderful comfort settles, Kenneth comes to discover that Aubrielle is a lady with a secret. Because of this secret, her mother is murdered and Kenneth finds himself protecting Aubrielle because he wants to, not because he has been ordered to. Mysterious sects and a crazed warrior want the lady dead for different reasons. It soon becomes a test to Kenneth's cunning and knightly skills to keep his beloved Aubrielle alive.

This was a good story with interesting and engaging characters. The narrator was quite accomplished and enhanced the experience. My only negative, is the audio quality. There was some sort of glitch in the recording, a very distracting "blip" sound every few words throughout the entire narrative. I am sure it is not my issue, as I tried listening on several of my devices with the same result. This was one of the better narrators, a shame his performance was impacted by poor recording quality.
the taming of the Knight and the Shrew
when he like watch her breast feed Bren
when he begged for her life....it showed that he never let his pride get in the way of his love.
the epilogue ripped my heart out....i had become very attached to Ken.
Good story, Tim Campbell is a good narrator. The performace can make listening an enjoyable experience. Put together a good writer such as Kathryn Le Veque. Nice experience.
Yes if they had read or listened to the first book "Dragonblade." It's a great sequel to the first book & I love Kenneth's love story.
"Dragonblade" also by Kathryn Le Veque which is the first book in this series. The only reason I'd compare it to is because it is the love story of Kenneth St. Hever from the first book.
Yes, great adventure & romance!
I really liked towards the end when the little knights came to Aubrielle's rescue.
The narrator is not my favorite, but I felt he did a good job switching back & forth between the characters' voices in the dialogue.
It’s another thrilling medieval story of a Knight and a Lady, named Kenneth & Aubrielle. She is a headstrong and beautiful young woman who does what she wants and he is a beautiful knight.
Some scenes of confrontation are cute, funny and well written!
When Aubrielle proposes marriage to Kenneth!
No, I really enjoyed this audio!
All of Kathryn's stories done in audios are perfect for me!
I loved the book, so I decided to try the audiobook. The audiobook is terrific too- I love both mediums. The audiobook is more like a performance of the story, reminds me of theatre. Tim Campbell as narrator is terrific and brings the story itself to life- I really like listening to his work!
I enjoyed the first few days that Sir Kenneth and Lady Aubrielle spent together. She was made his ward by her uncle as she was considered uncontrollable. How Kenneth dealt with Aubrielle and the situation had me laughing out loud.
I liked Sir Kenneth's physic, Argus. He had a dry wit and sarcasm. I also enjoyed Kenneth's second knight, Everett, he had many chivalrous qualities and was funny as well.
Once I began listening to the story I found it difficult to put it down, as I became involved in the story and characters. I found myself carrying my kindle everywhere to follow along! With an audiobook I can listen while I do other things, which is helpful.
I really enjoyed this audiobook and would recommend it to a friend. I would love to see the entire Dragonblade trilogy on film!
I was able to finish Island of Glass, but at times laughed out loud at the formatted (and a bit modern) dialogue. I finally decided that the story was written with a writers' program, or was actually a children's novel with sex added. The actual story was ok, or I would not have been able to finish it; but the narrative and dialogue was awkward and simplistic. Very unbelievable.
Hate to judge, as Ms. Le Vegue appears to be a successful writer. But I'll not be tackling the third installment.
And by the way, forget the epilogue. That actually made me mad enough to bother with a review.
