Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love.…
With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends.
Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.
Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives.
When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.
Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself - and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope - and love - alive….

Horrible narration

What would have made Dark Witch better?

The narration of the story was so off putting that I couldn't even sit through the first 5 minutes of the book before I had to shut it off. If it had a different narrator I might be able to listen to it. Also not very happy that it is an abridged reading. Most Nora Roberts books are not very long so why do they need to be abridged when done in audiobook format?


What didn’t you like about Katherine Kellgren’s performance?

She seemed very over dramatic and she rushed quite a few of the lines on top of yelling them making it very hard to really understand what was being said.

Narration was Horrible!!!

What did you like best about Dark Witch? What did you like least?

I love the story line. I hated all the yelling..


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator made me feel like Iona was Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. She made her sound like an idiot, constantly repeating lines loudly. All her voices for the other characters made them sound like old people. I don't think I have ever heard anything worse. I didn't even know they were supposed to be young for the first 4 chapters of the book.


Any additional comments?

I pray that the second book has a better narrator. I love Nora Roberts and I'm surprised she didn't make sure it had the right narration. Even though the narration was awful, I love the story and will read the 2nd book. I will review on the next narrator.
