Excellence Plot and Charters

The plot weaves a web of spies, heroes and patriots. Perhaps, (or should I say, May chance, ) the plot was too intricate for the length of the book. The ending is complete but the scenes flash by too quickly. I still highly recommend it. I’ve grown fond of Laura Frantz’s work. Aimlee Lilly performs the female voices to protection. However , the males voice lack a base tone. I look forward to more Frantz books set in this time period.

Good Plot

While this book has a good plot, I could not give it a five because it was too sappy. The narrator has a pleasing voice and does an excellent job of acting, but I struggled to see the characters as they were written because her voice for Elizabeth sounded like she was in her late thirties or early forties, and for Noble... What can I say? I've heard Welsh accent from all parts of the country, and this narrator could not do it well. It was very much the accent of someone who comes from India, creating cognitive dissonance when we're talking about Patriots in the Revolutionary War.

Sometimes 'Fair' is the best there is.

Well developed at its beginning I expected a thorough definition of both history and characters. Instead it seemed the author lost interest in both the meaty account of our nation's origin and the people who stood fast to its founding. The last chapter was rushed and nebulous. I won't be rushing on to read another of Frantz's novels neither will I ignore them. I'd rate this book as fair with the exception of the narration quality of Aimee Lilly which alone merited the listen.

Story wonderful but narration not so

This narrator was terrible with Noble’s voice. It was supposed to be Welsh but sounded more like he was from India. It was an annoying voice that I could not get past. Even the women kept slipping in their accent. It was very distracting.

Good read for a Colonial Williamsburg fan, like me

If you are a CW junkie, you will appreciate the references to all our favorite places: The Raleigh Tavern, the Governor's Palace, Bruton Parish Church and much, much more! Clearly Ms. Frantz did her homework! It's a good story! The narrator's male, Welsh accent ...did not ring true. Otherwise, the narration was fair enough. I love Laura Frantz and have several of her books. I will listen to this again!

Accents - NO

The attempt at a Welsh accent is dreadful, and so jarring considering its the accent of one of the protagonists. Can't make it through the rest of the book. I'm not even nit picking, if it even sounded remotely Welsh I'd be okay but it's a weird almost comical cross between offensive Indian stereotype accent and Chinese. Was no one in or around the booth listening in when this started and decided perhaps best to scrap it? How do you record hours upon hours of this and at no point did someone intervene? If you can't do an accent, just don't do the accent. Hardly anyone would have complained about a Welsh protagonist speaking with a plain English accent. But THIS abomination??
