    I enjoyed listening to this a lot. The story was engaging and well worth listening to.

    Tulip. So full of innocent energy. Delightfully sweet and naive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the interactions between Master Yi and Tulip.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    While narrator of the story does sometimes have issues with the narration cadence, I thoroughly enjoyed the character voices. They were believable and well portrayed. I had no trouble following the characters and there were many.

    I look forward to book 2!

    Story
    "Warriors and Flowers are just the beginning!"
    Would you listen to The Warrior & The Flower again? Why?

    Yes I would, I loved the book and the characters! The author was able to bring everything to life with the wonderful and beautiful details. I loved the House of Flowers and how everyone was named after flowers, Tulip and Peony were great :) I loved the Oriental references and the paranormal elements that were both part of the story. Yi was an awesome character and it was heartbreaking to see what he goes through in the book. But his relationship with the Madame is great after seeing how much she is like his daughter that was murdered.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Yi the main character was absolutely my favorite. The warrior in him was very clear and yet there is also that other side that loves and can be sweet and caring. You can clearly see how much his family meant to him, especially when he takes responsibility for the girl.


    Which character – as performed by Al Kessel – was your favorite?

    Peony was my favorite :) I LOVED the way she was portrayed in the audiobook and she was so funny and smart yet innocent at the same time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    When a Warrior is pushed too far, only a Flower can bring him back from the edge.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this book and think the author did a fantastic job of portraying the characters and bringing the story to life for the reader :) And Al Kessel did an awesome job with his voice inflections for each character. It made me laugh, made me cry and had me on the edge of my seat many times! That is exactly what a good book should be :) Definitely recommend it!

    Story
    "Loved the Characters & Adventure. Great Narrator!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.The audio version is fantastic. The narrator does a great job of bringing the characters and the action to life. I was able to envision each detail as he read and on many occasions found myself laughing, wiping away a few tears, and cringing at some of the battles as I listened to this great story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are fantastic. I loved that they were so easy to get to know and I also enjoyed the adventure and the magical elements of the story.


    Have you listened to any of Al Kessel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. This is my first time listening to this narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are a lot of scenes that stand out in my memory but the one that earned me a few stares from the people next to me on the treadmill was the scene in which Tulip was fixing Yi’s hair while he recovered from his injuries. I couldn’t stop laughing when the emperor commented on his elaborate coif.
