The Rebels of Cordovia

What a sweet and endearing tale. Clarke combines an exciting plot with intriguing characters for a definite winning start to this series. I loved how the underlying theme of morality shines through without overpowering the plot of the tale. At the same time, the characters themselves are such god people that you can't help but fall in love with them. Throughout the entire tale, Clarke's inviting voice shines through, inviting readers deep into the troublesome world that her characters find themselves living in.

This is definitely a fairy tale with a twist (or four). It's a heartfelt tale that will be fun for all ages.

Very enjoyable listen...

Would you consider the audio edition of The Rebels of Cordovia to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the book, only listened to the audio version. I like audio books because I can multitask while also listening.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the fact that it was clean. It wasn't full of graphic sex or violence, it was just a good story with good character development.

What about Carolyn Kashner’s performance did you like?

I liked the fact that she actually gave the characters their own voice - to me that's a sign of a good performance, when you don't have to figure out who's talking (again).

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

This story is compelling and there have been times where I almost wish that my commute was slightly longer so that I could find out what would happen next, sadly, I just can't listen all at one time.

Any additional comments?

This is a solid book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. My only "complaint" is that the characters seem a little too perfect, but then again, no one wants to listen to an extremely depressing book, and the characters where very entertaining overall.

Great story!

The Rebels of Gordovia is sweet romance novel of two people wanting to free their country from an evil, hateful ruler. Robin, the heroine of the story disguise herself as a man-thus many people she is --and along with her follow rebels do everything in their power to make the King's life miserible by taking the money from the tax collectors. Thus, they are called Robin's Rebels. It was a chance meeting of another group of rebels that things change for Robin and she finds herself falling for the leader, Daniel. There are many twists and turns in this story but it so enjoyable to listen to and the ending will surprise you. This is the first story of Linder Weaver Clarke I had the pleasure of listening to and will certainly seek out her other novels to read and listen too. The narrator did a great job narrating this story, she took you into each character being.

Entertaining Female Robin Hood Story!

Any additional comments?

The Rebels of Cordovia is a very entertaining and enjoyable Robin Hood story. It has action, adventure, and a little romance. It also includes a little mystery due the disappearance of the son of the former king (years before the story begins) who was beloved by all. Where is he now and why hasn’t he returned to Cordovia to overthrow the tyrant who is ruling over Cordovia with an iron fist and who taxes his subjects into extreme poverty?

I became engaged in the Rebels of Cordovia and characters almost immediately. The heroine is the daughter of the local baker, who also leads a small group of vigilantes that fight for basic freedoms and rights. Like the legendary Robin Hood, they steal from the rich and give back to the poor. The story is basically how she and another vigilante leader unite all the various rebel groups and overthrow the vile king. They also fall in love in the process.

I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Carolyn Kashner and enjoyed it tremendously. She did a great job narrating with varying voices for both male and female characters. Thankfully this story is the first book in The Rebels series by Linda Weaver Clarke, so I can look forward to listening to other great adventures in this compelling audiobook series!

A New Twist on Robin Hood

This book takes place in the fictional land of Cordovia, a country under the thumb of a terrible king. He usurped the throne from the rightful ruler and has oppressed the people with increasingly high taxes and unfair laws. His soldiers terrorize the poor people, and only aristocrats are safe from his oppression.

More and more rebel groups are popping up in each town, among them The Freeman, led by Daniel, and Robin's Rebels, led by Robin. Daniel intends to merge all the local rebel groups to create a force large enough to overthrow the king, but Robin's Rebels remains a holdout. When Daniel challenges Robin to an archery contest to determine whether or not the groups will merge, he doesn't realize that the masked man he challenges is the beautiful woman he recently met and fell for.

I really enjoyed this lighter fantasy romance, it was a nice change of pace from more hard core fantasy but also had more drama than a traditional romance. Robin and Daniel were characters you want to root for, and there were also many side characters with large personalities like Robin's father. There were so many funny scenes that put a smile on my face. It was an entertaining listen!

The narrator did a great job, I've listened to her before and her narration is always enjoyable. She has a calm easy pace that pulls me into the story. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Entertaining Audible book!

I have to admit, I am starting to get spoiled with all the great books that can be found on Audible.com. I love the fact that you can plug-in the headset and listen without turning pages or holding a book. It's wonderful! I was so excited to get this copy of The Rebels of Cordovia by Linda Weaver Clarke. It's a great read and the narrator, Carolyn Kashner has a very pleasant voice, with plenty of expression and great vocal changes to help identify the characters.

I so enjoyed this fun book! It has adventure, romance, a little mystery, history and action. No boring moments here. Linda Weaver Clarke's Audible book is really entertaining and enjoyable. And it has a great ending! Which I won't tell you about because you really need to get this book.

Rebels for the cause of the people, Robin and her rebels have to decide whether or not to join forces to protect the rights of the people. Placed back in the days of wicked and oppressive kings, the rebels work together for the freedoms of the common people. Will they succeed against the governing forces?

The romance is sweet and the action is plenty. I highly recommend this entertaining book!
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for my honest review, which I have given.

Good read of historic fiction

This book was provided free of charge in exchange for a review.

This book is historic fiction. It is part romance and part historic adventure. It involves a group who wish to be free of the tyranny they feel the country is under and all their adventures and romantic interludes.

The book is an easy listen and fun.

The narration is good and the story line is well knitted.

Robin Hood gets a feminine overhaul!

Would you try another book from Linda Weaver Clarke and/or Carolyn Kashner?

From Clarke, yes - Kashner, no. Narration was awful!

How could the performance have been better?

Kashner's narration is robotic and cheesy, it was very difficult to keep listening. I think I would've enjoyed the written version more, as her voicing of characters was a bit painful.

Any additional comments?

These are all sweet romances, clean and appropriate for all ages. ***This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.***

Great Youth Story

I feel this is great for 9 to 15 years of age, again this is my opinion. The story and the characters are great. I was shocked at the references of God, make me believe this is to be referenced as a Christian story. I would strongly recommend for young teens.

I gave it 4 stars due to the "static" in between some chapters, it could use a little more back story on the characters, but, that could cause youngins to loose attention.

Pretty Good

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I enjoyed this twist on Robin Hood. The best part of this series was definitely the characters. I found myself fully rooting for Robin Marie and Daniel, and I particularly enjoyed the part of the book where they were competing against each other. I loved the plot of the book, and I was completely surprised by the ending, which I didn’t see coming at all.

My major complaint is that the first half of the audiobook had quite a lot of background static, which could be quite distracting.
