Sometimes the only way to love - and redemption - is to make a deal with the devil. After the death of her parents, Lady Aurora de Marquise is left with no illusions. Stripped of her birthright and betrayed by her uncle, escape is her only option. With her life on the line, she narrowly avoids another murder attempt - only to run headlong into Lord Brigham de Mornay, a man most consider a monster. With her uncle's henchmen nipping at her heels, Aurora knows better than to trust a stranger - especially one as compelling as Brigham. Well-honed instincts urge her to flee before his abundant charm takes a nasty turn into aggression - and she ends up neck deep in trouble. Wary, but undeniably drawn to him, Aurora pits her will against his, challenging his authority every chance she gets. But when her uncle manages to track her, she is left with the ultimate choice - surrender to the man who now holds her heart or risk it all trying to escape again. Gritty and fast-paced, Warrior's Revenge brings to life the magnificence of the medieval age while exploring the meaning of honor, duty, and nature of true love.

Someone very slow on the uptake may have more patience than I do. The narrator takes all the action out of the story by reading so teeth-grindingly slowly.
I would like to see more careful editing to remove the jarring inconsistencies in the text.Phrases such as "pushing someone's buttons" for instance, do not sit well in a medieval context and detract from the atmosphere. There were a few similar instances which were glaringly out of place and could have been amended to improve the whole.
Sue Pitkin reads as if she is following her finger along the text like a schoolchild. She pauses when she should continue to the end of the phrase, and at other times places inapt stresses on certain words which can make utter nonsense of the entire sentence. Frequent mispronunciations are also very annoying, particularly STIFFLING (sic) instead stifling.It is a common enough word after all.
I would not cut any characters.
I usually enjoy stories by this author and feel that she has been badly let down by the producer who should have picked up, and rectified, the errors made by the narrator.
The only comment I would have is that sometimes the vocabulary did not fit the times.
The classic example would be a reference to someone being caught in the "crosshairs".
I have alway enjoyed being read to, but when found audible it was a dream come true, love listening to books
This was a ok book only because it was to much detail.. Instead being 15 hour long she could have shorted to probably 10 hour long.. The narrator could have been better. As long as it was it could had more action in it.. It was a bad book it just was too detailed..
I have enjoyed this book and read it many times. I was very excited to find it as an audible book. I started listening to the book and was unable to get past the first few chapters. I waited several months and tried to listen to it again. Unfortunately I couldn't get past the same few chapters again. I love audiobooks and I love Coreene Callahan's story but I could not recommend this book. Sue Pitkin would do better just reading the story without her interpretations. Did not even seem like the original book that I have enjoyed many times.
It is one of the more realistic stories that I have listened to. It had believable characters, set in a great time frame. Overall it was a wonderful story to listen to I couldn't stop listening to it and it kept me up till all hours of the night. Thank you again for a great story. Sincerely Patricia weiger
