Publisher's Summary

1197 A.D. - Smarting from the loss of his betrothed, Sir Keller de Poyer has learned not to trust women. A bear of a man with a brilliant mind, Keller is socially awkward but an accomplished knight. He is so accomplished in fact that his liege William Marshal gifts the man with lands in Wales for his meritorious service. But there is a catch - in order to secure the lands and titles, he must marry the Welsh heiress.

And so begins the journey into the Netherworld - a castle with a dark reputation and an heiress who hides her own terrible secrets. Death lives at Nether and Keller is caught in the maelstrom. Can he save his new wife from danger and betrayal before it's too late?

    "Consistently Good Writer!"

    I have listened to many of Kathryn Le Veque's books and she always writes interesting stories that are emotionally charged. You can always count on her books to be filled with true to life dialog with believable challenges along the way. This book also has light humor to keep you smiling. The narration of Brad Wills adds emotion and excitement to this Medieval tale.

    I recommend this story to those who enjoy a good story along with a sweet romance. ;-)

    Mr. Wills brings to life any story he is narrating and this one is no exception. Loved it from beginning to end.

    Story
    "Emotionally Gripping!"
    What did you love best about Netherworld?

    It literally swept me away to another fantastic world! It's filled with all kinds of emotions, sadness, hope, joy and happiness! When Keller meets Chrystobel, his future wife, he suddenly senses that something is wrong and that the resident of the castle are hiding dark secrets. The story grabs you and holds you until the very end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sir Keller de Poyer was my favorite because he was a respected knight and a great protector but he was, also awkward with people. This made him a refreshing and unique character!


    What about Brad Wills’s performance did you like?

    Brad Will has done it again! His voice was perfect because it was the way I imagined Keller's voice.


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

    I never listen to an audio in one sitting, I prefer to taste it chapters by chapters. Listening to audio, relaxes me! And since, I'm a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque's medieval novels, it's always a delight to listen to her stories. They totally captivate me!


    Any additional comments?

    If you love a story filled with strong emotions and rich characters, then I highly recommend NETHERWORLD!

    Any additional comments?

    Once again, I’m captivated by this author-narrator team. I had the opportunity to listen to this audio twice. Second time around, it was just as exciting and suspenseful as the first. A great production from start to finish. Ms. Le Veque’s stories intensify emotions with her captivating plots. She brilliantly draws the reader/listener emotionally--hook, line and sinker. You love, laugh, hate, stomp your feet, and ultimately draw swords and daggers, ready to do battle, alongside hero and heroine.

    Nether Castle, located in Ireland, is controlled by Gryffyn, a madman, son to the Laird. Griffin is ill-pleased with his father who’s recently traded his keep and lands and his sister’s hand in marriage to a knight of William Marshall’s choosing, Sir Keller. He terrorizes his father and two sisters. He takes great pleasure watching them beg for mercy.

    In fact, Gryffyn is ill-pleased with both sisters, as well. His youngest sister, Izlyn, now 12, has known fear and terror since her mother birthed her. She’s been thrown in the dungeon countless times by her brother. At a young age, Izlyn stopped speaking, further angering her brother. All comes to a head when the new owner of Netherworld, Sir Keller, arrives at the castle.

    The prologue drops the reader into violence and anger, scarcely leaving room to breathe. After the furious fight, all is put to rights. I can breathe again, but very dramatically the tables are turned and the impossible happens. This cliff hanger sucked the air from the room once again. Chapter one takes us back in time to the day before. Now we find what leads up to this gut-wenching moment.

    Sir Keller is a great knight. His battle field strategies have carried him to the point in this story. He finds he’s to marry a woman 21 years younger, Chrystobel. Frankly, he’s not interested. That is, he’s not interested until he happenstance meets her outside the gates of the keep before he’s introduced. Life isn’t looking too bad after all. Sir Keller is very shy with women, but she intrigues him. His stance of protection and kindness to these two abused women softens my heart. His love, tenderness and concern for Chrystobel and her sister charm the most hardened heart. The rest of his fellow knights (very interesting men—can’t wait to hear stories about them) understand what the girls have incurred in their lives. They are ready to defend them with their lives.

    Both Chrystobel and Izlyn are very skittish. Their brother has been abusive for so many years, they expect a heavy-hand from men in general. These girls learn a lesson from Griffin. They learn men cannot be trusted, rather they need to be feared. Just as I think Gryffyn has been cornered, his reign of terror can be not more, he connives his way into the keep. His sole aim? To kill and take what is his.

    Narrator Brad Wills pulls the story’s action from its pages, wraps us in the turmoil of evil. I enjoyed experiencing the girls’ hesitancy. I love how he captures the timidity of Chrystobel, his marvelous job in conveying her fear of telling the truth and what it may cost her. Within a battle, he takes me there – the quickened pacing of words and tone, produces the desired effect. Tension builds in my chest like a spring wound tighter and tighter.

    Come to Netherworld to experience true evil and true love. You won’t be quite the same when you depart.

    "Not her best"

    Quite an obviously contrived and lack lustre story. The Knights have to be the worst knights ever! Allowing a madman to hide in the castle on multiple occasions, just to allow a poor plot to develop. Disappointing compared to her other works.

    "Great Story and Wonderful Performance!"
    Would you listen to Netherworld again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to 'Netherworld' again. It's a great story and Brad Wills' performance is incredibly entertaining!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Keller de Poyer was my favorite character. He was quite different from most of the other knights this author has written about. Although he was quite commanding and efficient in battle, his personal life was rather empty and sad. He'd been the loser in a previous relationship and was petrified at the thought the same thing might happen again.


    What about Brad Wills’s performance did you like?

    Brad Wills is a wonderful narrator! He doesn't just read the story, he ACTS the story!! I could hear the smile in his voice at the lighthearted passages, even when he wasn't laughing out loud. His emotional range runs the gamut, from sternness or anger, to humor, to sadness or utter fear. He differentiates characters expertly, and even reads the female characters as expertly as he does the male characters. He really puts the heart into the story!


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

    Listening to a book all in one sitting is not always the best way to enjoy it. I enjoyed it immensely, but preferred to listen to it over several days.


    Any additional comments?

    I would listen to ANYthing Brad Wills narrates!! He's the best!

    Prefer historical romance/mystery books. My absolute favorite is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

    "Unexpectedly good"

    Although I've become a bit cynical when it comes to historic romances I enjoyed this one. Interestingly there is a small portion where the narrator is talking to the producer and it didn't get edited out. It was nice to hear a little spot of the art he must create when telling the story.

    "Wonderful!!"

    This was another great story written by Kathryn and narrated by the best in the business Brad Wills. Even though I have read the book, it was brought to life by Brad with his wonderful voice. It was filled with adventure and love. I thought I was living in that very castle. I especially loved the part when Brad was singing the naughty songs the men were singing when they had to much to drink. I had to back up and listen again and again. I laughed every time. I loved it!!
