Publisher's Summary

1234 A.D. - For as long as she can remember, the Lady Adalind de Aston has loved Sir Maddoc du Bois. Being sent away to foster did nothing to cure her of her unending love for Maddoc, a sentiment he did not return. Years later, Adalind returns from fostering as a cultured and beautiful woman. So beautiful, in fact, that tales of her beauty are legendary and a string of hopeful suitors follow her home. Maddoc, now faced with this exquisite and refined creature, is tasked, as the captain of the army, with chasing the suitors away.

One suitor after another is turned away by Maddoc's blade. Some go easily; some do not. Meanwhile, Maddoc has come to know Adalind on an adult level and is coming to think he has been very stupid about rejecting this sweet and beautiful woman. In fact, the more suitors that come around, the more Maddoc finds himself succumbing to Adalind's charms and soon joins the parade of suitors. Adalind is thrilled when the man comes to his senses and offers for her hand. Finally, what she has always dreamed of will soon be hers.

But a new suitor pledges for Adalind's hand, a cunning and powerful knight who will not be deterred by Maddoc. Maddoc and the knight face off in several fights, each one more brutal than the next, until the knight finally challenges Maddoc to the ultimate battle to the death for Adalind's hand. A brutal battle ensues and Adalind, in her attempt to help Maddoc, ends up nearly costing the man his life. As Maddoc lays wounded, presumably dying, the challenger knight abducts Adalind and flees.

Adalind's grandfather is the great David de Lohr, Earl of Canterbury. With Maddoc lingering near death, David gathers some of his oldest and dearest friends to help rescue his granddaughter.

Powerful and captivating!

Where does Unending Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This one is the best! 5 stars

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Maddoc du Bois, a knight with a great skill, also very skilled with ladies.

What does Sean Patrick Hopkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have read this book, but I had the chance to sample it, and fell in love with Sean's voice.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Powerful!

Any additional comments?

I am a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque's books and this one is my favorite as an audio. She is a talented storyteller that never disappoints me. It's a fast-paced and well written story that I highly recommend, specially if you love medieval stories. This novel is filled with tenderness and action!

One of LeVeque's least interesting

Slow narrator, predictable and flat story and characters. Skip this one for any of her many other good books.

Unending poetry

Like fed the story, didn't particularly like the poetry. A bit over done. The pulsating adventures of rivalry were very exciting. The beginning was a slow start and a bit annoying, but it finally took off in chapter 9. Again LeVeque has the talent to twist and twirl a good story. I enjoy her genius!

narrator

I really enjoyed listening to this narrator! The narrator can make or break the book.

A good book

While the story and performance were very good I have two things to criticize. The first is the fact that too much narration can be overkill and many authors are guilty of writing too many words when a few words would have worked. The second is at the beginning of each chapter the narrator quotes poetry in a soothing type voice. Drove me crazy.
