Publisher's Summary

The second book in a YA quartet filled with intrigue, mystery, and romance, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory.

The year is 1453, and the end of the world is closer than ever.

As Luca and Isolde continue their journey, their attraction grows with each passing day. Even as they try to remain focused on the mysteries they’ve been ordered to investigate, the tension between them builds.

Their budding, illicit relationship is put on hold when a boy, Johann, and his army of children arrive in town. Johann claims to have divine orders to lead the children across Europe to the Holy Land, and the townspeople readily accept his claims. Luca wants to believe, but his training tells him to question everything...but when Johann’s prophecy begins to come true, Luca wonders if they have finally stumbled upon a real miracle.

Yet even the greatest miracles have the potential for darkness…and the chaos that follows Johann is unlike anything anyone could have imagined.

    "Boring and repeticious"
    What disappointed you about Stormbringers?

    I loved the first book, but this one was boring with the repetitions over and over again about what the characters feel or think! I had to drop it after the first few chapters! The male narrator in the first book was wonderful, giving each character a different voice and accent, this Nicola Barber sounded the same all the way!


    What could Philippa Gregory have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I would have liked her to keep the first narrator. Also, the first book kept me intrigued every minute of it, she should have kept that same pace. This book sounded like a children's book


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Tiresome insistance on explaining what the characters are thinking or feeling


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    First time I am disappointed by P.G., and I have read many, many books of hers!

    "Good read."
    Where does Stormbringers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high on the list that I have already enjoyed. Even though I love all of Phiilippa Gregorys books. It is a different format than I've read of hers before but I did enjoy it. I wasn't as fond of this reader, as I was of the the male voice in the changelings.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The detail in the settings and the people just make the whole book come alive.


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

    Yes it was hard to put down. After I finished the next book. Foods.Gold I am planning to reread them because they are really good.


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome

    Story
    "Decent story; irritating narrator"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Story good enough to pass the time on the road, but very disappointed in the new narrator. Loved the guy who read the first in the series, he brought depth and humor to the characters. The narrator of book 2, however, has limited range & specifically portrays the female characters as vapid airheads with little intelligence. Perhaps this wouldn't have been so apparent if the book 1 narrator wasn't so good.


    Would you recommend Stormbringers to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not as good as other Philippa Gregory tales but an admirable stab at something different.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicola Barber’s performances?

    Nope


    Do you think Stormbringers needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Meh. I would probably listen to it but also wouldn't miss if it didn't happen.
