Critic Reviews

“Sabatini's stories abound with drama and melodrama, action and excitement and brilliant colour, as well as minute period detail. No writer, not Scott, nor Dumas, nor Stevenson, has brought the past to life more vividly or accurately” (George Macdonald Fraser)
“One wonders if there is another storyteller so adroit at filling his pages with intrigue and counter-intrigue, with danger threaded with romance, with a background of lavish colour, of silks and velvets, of swords and jewels” ( Daily Telegraph)

Fantastic

Incredibly well read, with compelling stories. I found myself staying in my car to hear the end of each chapter

Can't match the original

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Two things. Reader is very interesting, which is great. However, he changes from being very loud to very quite. Very hard to listen.
Secondly, the story is just week.

Would you ever listen to anything by Rafael Sabatini again?

Probably not.

Did Michael Maloney do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes and no. Good job with voices, however, he could have done with out major tone changes.

More superb adventures.

Cleverly crafted, beautifully written and still surprisingly fresh. This is a worthy follow up to the original novel. Sabatini knows where to tie the stories to each other, or the first book, and where to introduce new plotlines and characters to avoid staleness. The stories of Blood do rise above other works of adventure fiction from the period as particularly smart and well thought out.
