Enjoyed this book. Was interesting, a simple listen, it was what I expected. What I did not expect, was the entertainment. This is not a simple little plot, there is more here than meets the eye. Somewhat predictable, but a good listen.

This book is very atmospheric! Readers get a strong sense of what it was like to live in a medieval European town. The rhythms of Rhianna's everyday life -- her chores and activities, her family, her home on the bluff far above the town -- come through clearly. Even things we know to be true about medieval life but don't think about much are crisply portrayed. You can really feel how far distances can be when traveled by foot, or how long and deep nights can be without electricity.
The narration is also very well done.
The plot sounds fantastic in the blurb, but it wasn't presented with enough urgency for me to give it five stars. It's a gentle little story when I was expecting something with a little more punch. The good news is that this will likely keep it from being too scary for its intended audience (I'm guessing 9-12 years?), but I was never riveted to my earphones. I wouldn't listen to this again, and would recommend it to people looking for things in this setting but not if their main interests were mysteries or fast-moving storylines.
