Publisher's Summary

1333 A.D. - The lovely and educated Lady Aubrielle Grace di Witney is what is kindly termed an unmanageable woman. Her uncle, the Earl of Wrexham, has been awarded custody of his niece because her mother can no longer handle the head-strong beauty. Like a coward, the earl abdicates his duties to his most powerful knight, Sir Kenneth St. Hever with the instructions to transform her into a submissive lady. Aubrielle and Kenneth are at odds from the onset; Kenneth expects obedience and Aubrielle is less than compliant. When the battles die down and a strange, wonderful comfort settles, Kenneth comes to discover that Aubrielle is a lady with a secret. Because of this secret, her mother is murdered and Kenneth finds himself protecting Aubrielle because he wants to, not because he has been ordered to. Mysterious sects and a crazed warrior want the lady dead for different reasons. It soon becomes a test to Kenneth's cunning and knightly skills to keep his beloved Aubrielle alive.

Outstanding!

There is not a single book by this awesome author that has disappointed me. Although I've read this book a few years ago, I absolutely loved every minute of the audio book. Tim Campbell is a excellent narrator and kept my attention throughout. Highly recommended.

Loved it and all your books

Except for Katherine dying in childbirth. I suppose there’s a reason for it in a future book.

She finds what she searches for.

A strong headed young woman, in pursuit of the lost chalice, from the Lord's Last Supper, is intent on pursuing her goal, at all cost.
Therefore, her mother, has left her in the charge of uncle, as her constantly evading the care of those charged with her care, is unseemly and improper conduct for a woman of her status.
In turn, the uncle turns her care to the only person, who seems to be able to prevent her escape, Sir Kenneth.
Thrown together, they begin to learn more about each other, and as various evil acts are committed by others, and unexpected situations occur, they learn to support each other.

from start to finish ..... I was captivated.

the narrator was able to connect with me and to convey emotion and the portrayal of each character nicely. and was able to convert from one to another seamlessly. The stories told by Kathryn have all that I want in a romnce novel, the adventure takes me to a far away land in a disrant time. The love story aspect has my heart a flutter.....and the scenes where the couples make love are beautifully written....and are not vulgar. That is what i like the most about how she writes.....I hate being submerged in a story and them badda bing ....badda boom......I am reading a seedy nasty vulgar article for a porn show. The love scenes are so well written I never feel that way while listening to Kathryn LeVaque.

Another great LeVeque story

This was a good story with interesting and engaging characters. The narrator was quite accomplished and enhanced the experience. My only negative, is the audio quality. There was some sort of glitch in the recording, a very distracting "blip" sound every few words throughout the entire narrative. I am sure it is not my issue, as I tried listening on several of my devices with the same result. This was one of the better narrators, a shame his performance was impacted by poor recording quality.

Great sequel!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes if they had read or listened to the first book "Dragonblade." It's a great sequel to the first book & I love Kenneth's love story.

What other book might you compare Island of Glass to and why?

"Dragonblade" also by Kathryn Le Veque which is the first book in this series. The only reason I'd compare it to is because it is the love story of Kenneth St. Hever from the first book.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes, great adventure & romance!

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

I really liked towards the end when the little knights came to Aubrielle's rescue.

Any additional comments?

The narrator is not my favorite, but I felt he did a good job switching back & forth between the characters' voices in the dialogue.
