Publisher's Summary

A new adventure begins on Harmony in the brand-new novel from New York Times best-selling author Jayne Castle.

Hannah West and Elias Coppersmith have no regrets about their impulsive wedding - because they can't remember it. All either can remember is that they were on the run. With Hannah's dubious background and shaky para-psych profile, she could have done much worse. The coolly competent mining heir arouses her curiosity - as well as other parts of her mind and body. And even her dust bunny likes him. But a honeymoon spent retracing their footsteps leads Hannah and Elias into the twisting underground catacombs, where secrets from both their pasts will come to light - and where the energy of their clashing auras will grow hot enough to burn.

Where is Joyce Bean?

First, let me start by saying that I love the Ghost Hunter series. Generally, I also like to listen to Barbara Rosenblat. But not in this series. Joyce Bean did an awesome job on the earlier ones that she narrated. I will probably bypass any future audio books in the series as this one was just hard to listen to.

Love the dust bunny

What made the experience of listening to Illusion Town the most enjoyable?

The story is great

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dust bunny

How did the narrator detract from the book?

If you can get past the sound of her voice the constant smacking she does will drive you crazy

Any additional comments?

Great book but the narrator sucks and really hurts the book

Narrator irritating

JAKs books need some new narrators. This voice was very old sounding and had strange pauses in the middle of sentences. This made it hard to concentrate in the story.

Wrong narrator

I enjoy Barbara Rosenblatt's narration of the Anna Pigeon series, but her voice is just wrong for this series. I actually considered not purchasing the audiobook when I saw she was the narrator, but since Jayne Ann Krentz has never disappointed with her futuristic paranormals, I decided to take a chance. It took several chapters before I could get lost in the book without being forcibly dragged out by the narration. The story is great, and the characters nuanced, so it's a shame to have it pulled down by the narration.

Please don't let Barbara Rosenblatt read any more of Jayne Castle's books.

I liked the story. I like most if not all of Jayne Castle's stories. But the narrator makes it difficult to enjoy the stories. The voice is way too old for the character. She squeaks and quavers. Please stop using her. Try Rene Raudman or some one like her. PLEASE!

Need new reader

This reader sounds like she's sucking her tongue. It's very annoying to listen to. I almost didn't buy this book when I saw her name

confused.

I have read all of the Jayne Castle books as well as JAK and Amanda Quick. I love anything arcane. the inflection in the readers voice made the heroine seam whiny when all of the feminine characters in her books are strong despite feeling alone in the world. I'm going to read this book myself and see if it was the intention of the writer but based on previous work I strongly doubt it. the story was okay but a bit predictable and the climax was a bit week. honestly I'm a bit disappointed after waiting so long for this book.

Everything that happens in Illusion Town stays in Illusion Town.

In Illusion Town Jayne Castle uses her ability to mix every day emotions and future day events into her trade mark editions of romance, adventure, and mystery all set 200 years from now. In Illusion Town she's recaptured the wit and action that has highlighted her earlier Arcane Mysteries/Romances. Prior to this book, author Castle had lobbed some cookie cutter, repetitive works that discouraged her ardent fans. In Illusion Town she shows that all is not lost. Now, if she could finagle a reader! Rosenblat portrayed the elder parts very well but for the rest, it was stilted. She placed the emphasis on the wrong part of a word and in many cases, the wrong word. I was convinced by the second chapter that Rosenblat hadn't even read the book before starting to record! To a new reader who didn't know the caliber of Castles work, Illusion Town would be in the "I tried but didn't make the cut" stack! Perhaps this story wasn't a 5 star but it's really hard to tell with an inadequate reader.

Get a new narrator

This book is so much like the rest of this series that I find it hard to tell them apart sometimes. Two incredibility talented people, both off the scales in talent, can't find a mate due to talent, get in trouble, get burned, off to bed then a covenant marriage. You would think after all the books so far that there would be no problem with off the scale talents since there are so many of them. It is a read I put on when busy with a mundane task, no thought involved in listening to the book, but this particular book has a huge looping hole in the narrator. I can't figure out why audible keeps such an annoying reader, just as you are getting into the story there is a pause and loud swallowing sounds before completing the sentence. Then there is the constant lip smacking coming in the middle of a conversation or at the end of a sentence, it is particularly annoying listening with a blue tooth. Both the unusually loud swallowing noises and slurpy lip smacking occur at regular intervals, at least every 2nd or 3rd sentence and sometimes more often. That coupled with her raspy deep and in places broken voice makes it sound like you are following a couple of great grandparents not younglings about to get married. I will not buy another book with Rosenblat narrating, the slurpy smacks and juicy swallowing actually made me nauseous a couple of times..

Review

I loved the book. Love Jayne castle books. The reader wasn't bad -- but not the best. Didn't get any feeling of excitement or adventure. Very monotoned.
