I love these books. I really like that this book draws in our protagonist without any coincidence. the third coincidence was getting a little too much after the last edition, bit this one is nothing like that. there's also less "but you're a woman!" moments. I know this would be realistic for the the, but I didn't really want to read that conversation over and over. so... what's left is a fab time traveling detective story that's entirely enthralling. thanks!!

maybe it's because I've read so many romance novel over the past couple of years but this one is got to be the stupidest that I have ever come across the complication in the last third of the story is so pathetic it's not worth picking up at all.

I'm a big Shane East fan..

I'll pretty much read anything he's put his voice to. I wonder how many books he reads and decides not the narrate. it's hard sometimes to find a good book, but generally anything Shane reads is great. this, too, was another example of great.

narration done perfectly

the narration of this amazing work was exactly what it should be. no silly voices... accents! a new accent for each character, bringing their individuality to life.

this is the best book I read in the last 6 months (out of about 50 books) memorable and funny and sweet and honest. I also like the 2 word chapter

I could listen to Shane east for ever

... and she puts on a girly voice when her own voice would be fine. A Linda Howard story deserves more than this narrator.

better than the middle one

this third book was more enjoyable than the middle one which seemed quite fake. and as vampire Romance novels go it is a very good version of that but it doesn't hold up to other more creative Romance novels that I have read in past.

Not good enough for the epilogue.

Having just finished this book I am appalled that the author, with such a silly, meandering, at times very boring, story could possibly dare to make her feble attempt to get into the mind of the greatest writer in the Western world; William Shakespeare.

At times the small sentences finishing a chapter made me cringe. The history rang false in so many ways. New information is provided to the reader in an, at times, awkward way with a note mentioning when the characters found out. This isn't good writing because it seems like stream of consciousness, rather than planned revelations.

I hope the TV writers rip it up and put it back together in a more satisfying way.

Yet, I will buy and listen to her next book.

look, it was fine. but don't hope for any kind of ending. there were times I was thinking that you could just skip whole chapters and move on with the story. But it's certainly entertaining, and look... at least the whole story is based on something more interesting than people constantly getting abducted... I'm looking at you Diana G.
