What the Critics Say

“One wonders if there is another storyteller so adroit at filling his pages with intrigue and counter-intrigue, with danger threaded with romance, with a background of lavish colour, of silks and velvets, of swords and jewels” (Daily Telegraph)
“Sabatini's stories abound with drama and melodrama, action and excitement and brilliant colour, as well as minute period detail. No writer, not Scott, nor Dumas, nor Stevenson, has brought the past to life more vividly or accurately” (George Macdonald Fraser)

Can't match the original

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Two things. Reader is very interesting, which is great. However, he changes from being very loud to very quite. Very hard to listen.
Secondly, the story is just week.


Would you ever listen to anything by Rafael Sabatini again?

Probably not.


Did Michael Maloney do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes and no. Good job with voices, however, he could have done with out major tone changes.
