the vanessa narrator is unbearable

The stories are mostly fun. But what really bugged ne was the terrible narrator for the Vanessa storx. Her accent is just hideous!! And don’t tell me it has to sound like that because it‘s set in Germany. I‘m German and I‘ll rather die than have that accent. She also mispronounces all the magical terms. Absolutely unbearable!!

Stories from The Folly.

Liked it, but... They are teasers. To short to satisfy. Give us some more. 😊

A marvellous read

I loved the way it took me back to the past stories in the series. It was great to get to know some of the characters better
