Love the Arkane adventures! I was thrilled to find this on Book Gorilla as Whispersync for really cheap. Dr. Sierra starts out in the British museum, becomes involved with crazed neo-Vikings, progresses to the British Library and then off to an island near Lindisfarne to foil the evil doers. Just the basics, no spoilers here. Story fast-paced and cohesive with good imagery.
On the other hand, the narrator has a grating voice and performs the characters weakly.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
NO! The narrator voice was like fingers on a chalkboard to me. The pitch, the tone and the inflection. She reads in a very emotional (when emotion isn't required) style. It was incredibly annoying!
Would you be willing to try another book from J. F. Penn? Why or why not?
I have listed to another book by J.F. Penn. Different narrator. It was a good book
If you could sum up Day of the Vikings: A Thriller in three words, what would they be?
Punchy, Exciting, Mythical
What other book might you compare Day of the Vikings: A Thriller to, and why?
There are definite similarities with Da Vinci Code, and Indiana Jones - With mythical artefacts being central to plot.
What does Veronica Giguere bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
She reads the antagonists very well, bringing an underlying menace to her character voices. Also a sense of urgency throughout the book which helped keep me engaged in the story.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. I would prefer to listen to all my books in one sitting, but it's never practical. At this length, this could be a perfect way for newcomers to audiobooks to start listening.
Any additional comments?
Joanna writes stuff that I want to read. Her plots are far reaching and mythical and I love the sense of adventure and fun that permeates her work. Day of the Vikings was the first of her audiobooks I've read and I enjoyed the experience. I'll be listening to another one very soon.
