Would you listen to Lord of War again? Why?
I love audiobooks especially this one and have all of Kathryn's ebooks which I have read numerous times now to have this book in a different format is just all the more the best! Even though it took me a while to like the narrator's voice and I couldn't really imagine it as Brandt's voice. His voice I felt was perfect for Ellowyn's. As the book progressed I did start to like it anyway and I will definitely listen to it again!
What did you like best about this story?
Yes, I do have a soft spot for the romance but the battles and action which I rather enjoyed are just so descriptive and it really feels like I am actually there and so real! Brandt the hero is just a wonderful guy tough by nature but really deep down has a heart of gold and Ellowyn the heroine isn't afraid to stand up too anyone even the black angel Brandt who all men fear? Both characters are just amazing!
Which scene was your favorite?
The first scene when Brandt and Ellowyn meet and he tells her to "be gone wench" Ellowyn's reaction to being brutally rebuffed had me giggling and laughing.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I just loved the whole book and Ms. Le Veque can surely bring almost every emotion into play one moment I'm laughing the next I'm crying. As I stated above laughing at Brandt's and Ellowyn's first meeting. Then I was crying when Dylan was killed in the battle of Poitiers. I just loved his character so much and didn't want this too happen. Poor Alex and Annabeth!!! I am amazed how she is able to spin such a wonderful tale of love, loss but a happy ending as well!!!
Any additional comments?
I would have to say even though there is no explicit sex scenes described in detail which I am most grateful for. Plus, the book doesn't lose it's intensity despite not having any sex described in graphic detail the love that Brandt and Ellowyn speaks volumes without it. There is still a hidden implication of their joining and you could kind of surmise it happening which is fine by me but I wouldn't recommend the book for anyone younger than 14 years old. I don't know if I would want a 11 or 10 year old listening to it despite how grown up they are.

Where does Lord of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I love audiobooks, so when Kathryn Le Veque decided to offer her books as audios, I was very pleased because I am a huge fan of her stories. I will probably get more because I listen to them while I create some jewelry or just to relax. Lord of War, Black Angel is one of my favorites.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Lord of War?
There are so many beautiful scenes, I find it hard to choose.
What about Daniel Dorse’s performance did you like?
I liked his voice!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I prefer to savor each chapters slowly.

My review for Lord of War, Black Angel, posted on Amazon.com.
Emotionally powerful! 7 stars
When I read, I seldom cry! But Kathryn Le Veque’s Medieval Lord of War, Black Angel is so passionate that I shed some tears and had a lump in the throat! It’s a beautiful novel, breathtaking and emotionally rich with her characters Brandt de Russe and Lady Ellowyn de Nerra. I loved the sensual chemistry between her main characters. It’s the story of two major families in the warring times of England! Ellowyn, daughter of mercenary Braxton de Nerra, is sent by him, to collect men from a legendary warrior Brandt de Russe, Duke of Exeter, the Black Angel. As soon as they meet, they had gotten to a very bad start. I loved her heroine; she was a feisty woman, head-strong, intelligent and always got what she wanted. Brandt is a powerful warrior but also a generous man with a tender heart! Both their worlds were so different, her being overprotected by her parents and him trying to survive at war! I loved that touch of humor between them, he liked to tease her and getting her all feisty. Sparks starts to flare between the two and passion ignites! Brandt suddenly, felt a strong attraction to Ellowyn, who then stopped seeing him as her enemy but rather as a very attractive man. Their love relationship was so well developed. Being often on the front lines at war, he felt that he needed to protect her at all cost. As war goes on, their love became stronger! Emotional events will occur, that will make you shed tears! You have to read this novel to understand the chemistry between Brandt and Ellowyn. Ms. Le Veque is a high quality writer that pulled me into her medieval story and again, I had to keep on reading to know what would happen next. She is a very descriptive author, so much I could see the surroundings on the battlefield! It’s a captivating story filled with strong emotions, tenderness, passion and adventure. It was the perfect medieval romance for me! I am literally addicted to Kathryn Le Veque’s stories. I highly recommend this sublime novel!

But wish Kathryn had used another narrator. Had I looked more carefully at the narrator of this novel I would not have purchased it. He puts me to sleep. The story is wonderful and I am a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque’s historical novels. So glad I buy her books as well. For then I can read the parts I fell asleep in. Can not wait for her next novel.
Always a great listen. Enjoyed every book of Kathryn's. I tank you for giving me so much enjoyment
