Amazing story . Pronunciation counts.

What did you love best about Queen of Swords?

The story. The characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Queen of Swords?

Bertrand's realization. (No spoiler)

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Quay is pronounced "key". Plait is prounounced "plat". Richildis is pronounced "rich SHIL dis".Bertrand is pronounced..... sigh, it's rather painful to listen to.

If you could take any character from Queen of Swords out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Michael _ a true gentleman.

Any additional comments?

New narrator? This one is good but not for this book.

A Pleasant Book

Well developed plot and characters. She could have used a little more research on her real people though, she tried to make Eleanor of Aquitaine into an older character when in fact she was a teenager during the second crusade. Other than that it was a truly an enjoyable read, er, listen.
