A great story loved it

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anastasia I loved her strong character, how she took the bull by the horn and nothing stood in her way of the mission

Any additional comments?

This author gives you a little bit of everything in this short read. It might be short but you are never left hanging as he goes into details about each scene. I found this to be a delightful adventurous listen as he takes you on a journey in taking down a spy who wants the war to continue. The author brings the past to meet the future in this fun loving read. This is a very fast moving listen with pirates, spies, love interest set in the Civil War time frame as he brings modern technology with explosion of two airships meeting in a fight that is life and death. Anastasia buts her and her child's life on the line as she fights the evil and bring justice to the states.

Kat Marlowe did a good job in the narration. I did enjoy the listen as she brought to life the wonderful characters. Her tones were good but at times she really needed to take a breath. It sound at times like she was robotic not all the time just a few places. She did pull me in and take me to another place in time which I truly enjoyed. The characters you had no trouble knowing who was speaking. The male and female were done in great character voices I did not hear any background noise and the audio was very clear. As she takes on more books I am sure she will get it down. I do feel she will become a wonderful narrator and I very much look forward to listening to more from her. It was a really good audio that I would like to listen to again.

The author gives you a believable story with wonderful characters as he pulls you in. At times your heart races wondering if they will make it out alive. The author gives you tons of action as he takes you through a very thrilling read. He even throws in a little love interest which will break your heart. There was nothing I didn't like in this read. The authors writing still is outstanding. For a short read there is a lot going on and you are never left behind guessing. I look forward to listening to more audios from this author. I recommend you pick this up of a pleasant nice listen.

Interesting

It is an interesting story of Anastasia Hawke. The stakes are sky high in The Celeste Affair for ace spy. Set in the Civil War era Anastasia must find the bravery to fight private battle all the while avoiding the war in North America from intensifying worldwide. A well-paced story filled with sword fights and airship combat this is sure to keep you entertained. I suggest grab it.
