I loved the book Jester Leaps In, which provided a fascinating glimpse of Constantinople during its heyday. IN this book the locale is switched to the troubadour era of Languedoc, another romantic time period. However, JLI managed to strip the romance while still leaving the enchantment, on a much earthier level. This, book on the other hand, strips the romance and appeal of the troubadour era. It focuses on suffering and is not redeemed by an ending where it feels like justice has been done IMHO.
Possibly this is in some part due to the readers. The male reader read the previous book and has a wry, sarcastic tone that is perfect for Feste/Theo. However the female narrator is pretty bad and completely lacks humor. Both of them are really, jarringly bad at reading the voice of the apprentice, a 13 year old girl; they both voice her like she's a mouse; incredibly irritating.
