Publisher's Summary

In the third installment of the Girl Genius novels, Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle begins as Agatha Heterodyne returns to her ancestral home, the warped little town of Mechanicsburg. There she must claim her inheritance by convincing the artificial intelligence that animates her family's castle that she is, in fact, the new Heterodyne. But this apparently simple task is made complicated in several ways: An imposter claiming to be the legitimate heir appears. The Empire is convinced that Agatha is the person responsible for the Long War (and to be fair, they are not entirely incorrect). And, worst of all, the Castle itself is insane.

From the Hugo Award-winning Girl Genius online comics comes this third book in the Agatha H. trilogy; and just like the first two, Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle will grab you from the first chapter and not let go!

    "Highly recommended"

    A great novelisation of the first half of the Mechanicsburg arc of the Girl Genius story. Like the two novels preceding it, this book faithfully tells the story found in the comics, and also greatly expands on background material. It is a recommended read for any fan of the series.
    The book has two flaws however; the book ends mid-story with a cliffhanger, and the narrator has way too few different voices for the characters she portray. Other than that, it is a great read.

    "Fun Stuff."

    Nothing profound, nor exceptionally original. A fun fun time. Adds background to the graphic novels.

    "The Comedy continues!"
    What made the experience of listening to Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle the most enjoyable?

    The writing adapted for a prose novel and the performance of the narrator. Her voice has managed to capture the comedy and the CRAZY that is part of the Girl Genius web comic and translated it perfectly to audio book format. In fact I'd advice anyone who has only read the book to get this in addition. Also any who reads the comic should listen to this book to see how their favorite characters are performed by this talented narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The different voices and accents the author managed to put in for each voice as well as the passion with which she perfoms their vocalizations.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    I think I mentions that above but I will be looking into other perfomances if she was this good for what I imagine is a hard cast of characters to vocalize.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Agatha loses her mind for a minute but is brought back by her feelings for two people whose lives are in danger.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr and Mrs. Folio please write the next prose novel soon so the next audiobook of this can come out.

    "Uh, where the heck is book 4? "
    Would you consider the audio edition of Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle to be better than the print version?

    What you don't know is that there is an online comic. For free... And yes I bought this also. I guess it depends on your aesthetic tastes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle?

    What? Well ok. Spoilerville. The coffeemaker. That's all I'm going to say. (laughs to self)


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    The Castle


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

    Adventure, comedic bathos, battles, thievery, and a lot of sneaking around. That's just the first ten minutes.


    Any additional comments?

    Finally an adventure with a female lead. She's smart, sometimes too smart. She'll make you laugh. Monsters!

    "Ending?"

    I like this book but the end was confusing even after listening to it twice. After the third listen I still don't like the end.

    "LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!"

    I love this series. I read the first two and I am seriously considering listening to them too. The only negative is that they haven't released a 4th book for me too read/listen to yet.

    "More Please!"

    Agatha is a great female protagonist! She's intelligent, stands up for herself, and doesn't let other people push her around! She is also sweet and kind-hearted. I also like that you even end up liking most of the "villains."

    "Very Enjoyable Listen"

    New parameter for my reviews, long enough for a credit. Terrific performance, though the sheer number of characters made unique portrayal difficult. Enjoyable, complex, slapstick and consistently megalomaniacal dialog kept me listening.

    "Cliffhanger in a novel? Really?"

    Would have been five stars if not for the cliffhanger for an ending. Novels should be able to stand on their own, even novels part of a series.

    That's what you get, I guess when artists decide to try to become novelists.

    I can't wait for the next installment. light, clever, fun, and satisfying. Maybe we get to see the Foglio's "Myth" series covered to audio book format...

    "A great companion to the Girl Genius comic series"

    If you are a fan of the Girl Genius comics then you will find this audiobook, or the book, to be a good addition to GG lore. With additional insights into the motivations and thoughts of key characters, it's the same story told in an interesting way, without out new plot developments. Well performed and well recorded, the audio quality is fine. Not essential but will be enjoyed by fans or those totally new to the series alike.
