This was a great book, but it wasn't about Rialla. Rialla wasn't even in this book. I was greatly disappointed when I first started this book, expecting Rialla. Only to be surprised, when it started talking about a thief named Sham. The book is still great, but because of the description I was extremely disappointed.
I enjoyed the story.
Her speech is overly enunciated. And just listening to her distracted me from a story I have enjoyed.
about the same. I love the book, and the audio As a audio newbie I've always thought that reading the book is better than listening to someone read it out. In some cases I'd have to say that's the case - some Robin Mckinley stuff is dull, dull, dull in audio when I loved the book - but this isn't the case here. I'd recommend to anyone.
Nothing specific. I've listened to her other recordings for this series and for Raven's Strike and enjoy listening to her.
Tell us about yourself!
A new story told wounderfully, I just love this author. The main character is a spunky soul with some amazing adaptability in acting. I enjoy the way she moves through the different characters she has to portray.
I have listened to this story four times over the last year and a half. It is a great now as when I first read the book version. I'm a science fiction fan at heart but this story really gets better every time I listen to it.
Reading is my passion...but life as a working single mom, listening to books better fits my busy schedule! LOVE Audible!
I am in such awe of how Briggs makes such an interesting story-line that has me hooked from the moment I start it! This one will not disappoint you!
