    "Awesome!!"

    This story is set in medieval times. Sir Hugh, a knight, and Lady Alice are warm, strong and some times funny characters and there are places in the story where you just want to laugh outloud. The hero and H are both clever, complicated and interesting individuals and have respect for each other and the story is intriguing. Sir Hugh is thought to be a bastard, but is he? His mother is thought to have poisoned both herself and his father but did she? Lady Alice is an educated female, extremely loyal and honorable and she wishes to be treated as an equal. Hard for any female during that time period. Barbara Rosenblat is wonderful at reading the story. This is not a story where there are those ubiquitous misunderstandings between the hero and the heroine they both say exactly how they feel.

    (Spoiler Alert):There is some mystery concerning who is trying to find the green crystal. Lady Alice is using this as a bargaining chip to get Hugh to give her a dowery so she can go to a nunnery and her brother can be sent away to school. But lady Alice makes a deal and ends up in Hugh's keep, Scarcliffe. Alice becomes a legend at Scarcliffe (she is able to deal with Hugh's temper and live.) and the people believe her to be a sort of angel. This is just a light feel good book. This is not Outlander! If you want to read something you don't have to think about that will just make you just feel good when you finish it , I recommend this book to you. It is one of my favorite books. Worth the credit. Good Listening.

    Story
    "Favorite book of all time"
    What made the experience of listening to Mystique the most enjoyable?

    The characters are so well developed and the narrator is excellent. I have listened to this book at least 30 times and i'm listening to it right now.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I just love the heroine and hero and the interaction between them. I love the way the hero respects his lady and stands up for her to all.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    Everything! I don't think I'd like the book if I read it. It's her characters that make it excellent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Mostly the dry humor of the dark knight and the way he reacts to the antics of those around him. It isn't a comedy but there are enough humerous responses to keep me coming back.


    Any additional comments?

    I think of myself as a fairly intelligent person but this book, named Mistique with characters like Hugh the Relentless, the bringer of storms, places like Rivenhall Manor and the fact it is a romance of the highest water has me in it's thrall. So wonderful!!

    "Shades of "The Princess Bride"!"

    I enjoyed this bit of entertaining fluff. Early Amanda Quick when still light and fun. Barbara Rosenblat's performance makes this completely enjoyable, sincere yet with a tiny touch of juicy camp.

    Barbara is a good narrator but the performance isn't as good as some others.

    "For me this was like visiting an old friend!"

    For me the narrator was excellent, she move the story along. She is a delight to listen to!
    In my opinion Amanda Quik's classic stories are her best work; although I find her current works nice I love her classic stories.

    Vince Flynn is my favorite author. I enjoy CIA or FBI thrillers, and sometimes light reading like Judith McNaught or Cathrine Coulter. Personal information, I became a grandma last year and love it!

    "Story great, narration terrible."

    The story is great, but the narration makes it hard to listen to at times.
