I, too, got this as a $4.95 purchase via gift cert, and am SO glad I didn't waste a credit on it. I don't mind the narrator so much, it's the actual story. I had hopes that this wouldn't be a "bodice ripper" kind of story, as I am not a big fan of romantic fiction, but the story sounded promising, so I gave it a try. I've spent a significant amount of time rolling my eyes listening to the dialogue between the sorcerer and the witch. Really? I mean, really?? I've liked other Nora Roberts' books, but this one is a huge disappointment. The characters are interesting enough to deserve better than the treatment they are getting here. There is some funny dialogue and a few entertaining situations, but not enough IMO to save the story. Routing this one to the dustbin.
Sophomoric platitudes and an old voice for a young sorcerer put this listen at the bottom.
Morrigan's Cross is an excellent story all around. I read it previously and was correct in thinking that it would be a great audio book. It was better than I thought.
Please note, this is the first part of a trilogy.
this belt 4th or 5th or 10th of the story. and they still open. Nora Roberts could you write directions to the nearest grocery store I think it was the most exciting works as a rat.
The story is the same as ever other and can't even hold my attention. What did hold my attention was the horrible voices of the narrator and his need to make wet smacking noises every two seconds. It was a waste of a credit!!!
The convenience -- I've read the series several times as it's really one of my favorites (from NR, at least), but it was really lovely to be able to listen to it as I was driving on my way to work!
The relationships between the Circle. The six of them had an exceptional connection as a group, but also each character had a different sort of deep connection to every other member of the Circle as well.
