Grace Draven is one of the most masterful storyteller, she is a genius who creates unforgettable and lovable characters (some hateful) in he point is she grabs your attention from beginning to end ans leaves you wanting more. Master of crows is one such as story penned by Grace, it's powerful, compelling and totally spellbinding, i want more :D Jay Britton is magnificent as the narrator and totally believable. Thanks to both of you. You're both amazing xx
"Amazing and unique!"
Grace Draven does it again. Awesome story, great narration, and hot like a thousand suns. At first I didn't understand why The Master of Crows had such a gruff voice, but the plot reveals why. And Jay Britton, I commend you on doing such a difficult voice and pulling it off spectacularly! I can't wait for more!
Simply sublime, from the exquisite prose to the amazing narration. A thrilling book filled with love and despair, sorrow and joy, and a triumph sweeter than Silhara's delectable oranges. An epic and unforgettable master-work.
"Fantasy slow burn magical romance"
I loved the story and world that Grace Draven created, the slow workup towards a romance between the 2 characters, the elements of magic, and the elements of mystery were extremely well written. I thought Jay Britton did an excellent job at the female voice but unfortunately I found the male main characters voice very harsh and hard to listen to, although appropriate for the book, it is something I would re-read, but not re-listen to.
"Well crafted romantic fantasy"
This is an intriguing world and well executed story telling. You should surrender and enjoy.
"Don't understand all the five star ratings"
I thought the characters were flat, the romance unconvincing, and the fantasy, while it could have been interesting, pretty much ignored until the last quarter of the book.
While the narration was fine, there were weird pauses every couple of sentences. I think it may have been taken from a CD and no one thought to take out the pauses between tracks. Made it drag more.
"A well written love story!"
Yes, because it is a good story that brings out feelings.
The final battle with the God.
Not a bad performance. He did well with the rough voice.
No....but it did make me feel good when she was freed by the Master of Crows at the end.
I enjoyed listening to this book! I did receive this book for free from Audiobook Boom in exchange for a unbiased review.
"Absolutely Beautiful story"
One of those stories you lose yourself in. I just finished and I'm going to reread it again and again. Just perfect!
I loved this book. I need more of her writing in audio form. Grace Draven is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
"Enthralling, subtle and sweet"
I picked this up on a whim because I was looking for a new narrator to love. I am so glad that I gave Master of Crows a chance. The story is so interesting, I could hardly stop listening. I loved the characters, and was happy to find the side characters were just as fleshed out and endearing as our main cast. This novel is entertaining, steamy and rather sweet. The narration was superb as well. Recommended to fantasy lovers who like a bit of romance and brooding male leads.
"A wonderful story, beautifully told."
I loved this story when I read it last year and I was so excited to know it was coming out in audiobook format too! The characters are so magnetic and although Silhara isn't easy to grow fond of at first, you soon find yourself falling for him. Jay Britton did an amazing job bringing this particular character to life and his very specific voice was perfect.The growing love between the characters is far from predictable and certainly not cheesy. The narrator did a good job in bringing the female character's voice off the page and I was swept away with the story telling from the word go!
A stunning example of Grace Draven's writing and superb narration by Jay Britton.
I would definitely recommend this and am looking forward to further collaborations between Grace and Jay.
