Exciting, Romantic, Dramatic.
How to answer this without giving spoilers, hmm? OK well one of the memorable moments was after Antonia was rescued and she discovered who her hero was.
I can't say without giving spoilers, but suffice to say that it was between Antonia and Jean-Phillipe.
Yes a few actually, but again I can't say which without giving spoilers.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable short story full of drama, passion, magic, danger and intrigue. The narration was great, with Tim having to do a variety of accents. His normal narrative voice is smooth and enjoyable to listen to, his cockney accent is fun, his Russian accent good, apart from the occasional moment when I thought he sounded like the Count from Sesame Street lol, but his French was suave and sexy especially when he is speaking to Antonio as the Captain. A wonderful achievement to manage all the voice characterisation and to do it so well.
