Wonderful book, Lacklustre narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of Dancing on the Wind to be better than the print version?

No, I usually do feel the audio versions are better but not this time and there have been a lot of great Narrators so far for the Mary Jo Putney novels, but William Kirby is not very exciting. He mainly talks in a monotone and does not have a good female voice which is essential. I really enjoy men reading romance novels but not if they are bad.

What other book might you compare Dancing on the Wind to and why?

I think Mary Jo Putney's whole Fallen Angel series is fab! and have really enjoyed all the stories. My favourites are Petals on the Storm (which I hope will be next!), One Perfect Rose and Angel Rogue.

Would you listen to another book narrated by William Kirby?

Not, if I could help it.

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

It would have been, this book is a combination of Spy novel, Romance novel and Indiana Jones (I swear at the last chapter Mary Jo knew the historical details and saw how she could fit a overtop action sequence in and it worked wonderfully, except for the which was as dry as dust).

Any additional comments?

it is a fab fab story but it won't make your heart sing like so many of the Mary Jo Putney audiobooks do, perhaps try another Mary Jo Putney Audiobook, they might re-do it with a better Narrator.

Mary Jo Putney Always Amazes Me

At first I chose randomly one of her work "The Bargain" and didn't expect much, but then it surprised me and wanted for more of her work. Now I venture the second of the Fallen Angels series, and I love it too. As always the characters and the storyline is richly developed, and full of unexpected twist as her distinguished uniqueness that hooked me for the first time.
I wonder how the author has vast and unlimited imagination. I definitely look forward for the upcoming audiobook of the series.

A most enjoyable book

I really enjoyed this! Very entertaining. The narrator did a fine job and the story kept me interested from the opening line. Kit and Lucien were great together. Overall, very enjoyable.

Excellent historical romance- and so much more!

Insights to British history, strong characters created with psychological depth. Shows the close bond twins can have. Hot sex scenes, plot has believable twists and turns. Nobles who act nobly. Other nobles who are depraved. Dowsing for dungeons!!Excellent page turner & good narrator. 5 stars!!

A good solid step in the Fallen Angels series

In book 1 of this Fallen Angels series, "Thunder and Roses," Nicholas and Clare had faced the hurdles of him being half Gypsy through his mother which had made his father's father despise him, and her having been raised by a pastor father so dedicated to caring about every parishioner that he never seemed to regard his own daughter as any more than just one more parishioner.
Now that those two got happily wed, Lucien, Earl of Strathmore, finds himself pursuing a lovely young woman who herself is seeking her disappeared sister.

not urgent normal mjp

became tedious and annoying with never-ending twin psyco-mumbo-jumbo. add to that implausible divination and it felt like author was trying way too hard to be inventive. not sure if I want to waste credits on rest of series or not.

Rather far fetched connection

This book was okay. I particularly liked Lucien, aka Lucifer. He was a great character. I was not too fond of the female lead, Katherine. She was way over the edge. The plot line concerning Katherine and her twin sister was really stupid. They could read each others minds even when miles apart and could talk to each other through their thoughts. Absurd.
The narrator was very good and was adept at female voices as well as his deep male voices.

This book was not a favorite

I have read a number of MJP's books and this by far is one of my least favorite. It rambled on, the narrator was subpar, and a great deal of the subject matter relating to Satanism I found distasteful. This one is not a keeper for me!

Wonderful story horrible narrator

Just as in the first book in this series, I found the story interesting, entertaining and intriguing. The characters are also interesting ad easy to relate to. The narrator is one of the worst, I've heard. Absolutely no emotion and certainly does't do justice to the characters or to the story. Regardless of the narrator, I couldn't stop listening.

Edit: I just tried to listen to this story again. Could not do it.....the narrator ruins the whole book. I love this story....just can't listen. Sorry.

Fascinating story

I listened to this book on Audible. The story itself was great. It had depth, it was well paced, and it kept my interest.
However, while the narrator did very well in the non-dialogue areas, he missed the mark in dialogue. The voices were fine. But the emotions in the voices most often seemed to be flat and lacked a reflection of the action going on and the emotions being portrayed. I think I’d have preferred to have read this book rather than listened. That aside, great story.
