Publisher's Summary

Squire William Raven has only one goal: to finally receive his spurs and become a knight. When his lord, Sir Robert de Cantilou, returns from a five-year crusade in the Holy Land, William wants nothing more than to impress him.
After Sir Robert's return, noble guests arrive from France, bringing intrigue to the castle. William is oblivious to the politics, as he's distracted by nightly visits from a faceless lover, a man who pleasures him in the dark and then leaves, a man he soon discovers is none other than his master, Sir Robert.
But William can't ignore the scheming around him when he overhears a plot to murder Robert. He becomes intent on saving his lord and lover from those who would see him killed....

Great premise, but disappointing.

Would you try another book from Aleksandr Voinov and Kate Cotoner and/or Philip Rose?

I would not try another book with Philip Rose as narrator. His performance ruined the book for me.

If you’ve listened to books by Aleksandr Voinov and Kate Cotoner before, how does this one compare?

I have not listen to books by Voinov or Cotoner before.

Would you be willing to try another one of Philip Rose’s performances?

No.

Was The Lion of Kent worth the listening time?

Marginally.

One of the worst mm romances I've come across

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have no idea, someone who reads a book for the sex... The characters were sketchy at best, the story was almost non-existent and the romance was so meh, I can't say I thought I took it as a real romance.

What could Aleksandr Voinov and Kate Cotoner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Improve the characters, give them more personality, make the story more engaging and the romance more convincing.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The audio narrator was terrible throughout but exceeded himself even further with an unbelievably fake French accents, which sounded more like drunken Russian and indistinguishable English accents for the characters. I almost threw my iPod when I heard his voice for William. The supposed lion sounded like a twink who's put extra effort to sound even more effeminate than required!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was really short!

Budding squire seeks to please his master. He does

Where does The Lion of Kent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audiobook is at a higher rank of quality than what I've heard so far. There's a side plot with this and it gels well with the juicy parts. The description is great and the narration and narrative easy to listen through.

Who was your favorite character and why?

William Raven is my favourite character. He is the protagonist and I feel I related more to him due to age than any of the other characters.

What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

He is able to distinguish different characters with different accents and pitches. He was able to imitate Steven in a way that reminded me of a friend of similar personality. He was able to portray Robert as a respectable figure to look up to. And his French accents, at times were a bit hard to follow as is true with the story's intent of a strong French accent.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It brought me back to my childhood where I would fantasise about being a squire/knight. It didn't really make me laugh or cry but it made me blush (to think if a lesser reaction).

Any additional comments?

Liked the audiobook art as it represents the visual.

The story is well-rounded. The length is what I would consider as an episode. There could be more and I wish there was more but as it is, it is good just as well.
