Nathan and Caroline's adventures continue, this time as man and wife. This is Book 2 in the series and it is helpful to have read or listened to Book 1. The pair definitely has a knack for finding trouble and their latest exploits are even more action packed than the previous book. I'm really starting to love this series and can't wait to listen to the next installment. Ashley Holt's performance was well done and I liked the continuity of having the same narrator throughout the series. I enjoyed A Question of Loyalty and would recommend it.

Really enjoying this series! The narrator is fantastic and I love the storyline, alternate history and steampunk are a great combination. I received a review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

What did you like most about A Question of Loyalty?
*I did not pay for this audiobook* I really liked how much of a step forward the book was compared to the former. The gap of differance between the two is pretty large. While the books writing style and what not remains the same a key differance is how much time has passed between the two books. We don't hear about the world of politics in Washington as I expected and was pleasantly suprised to be taken along on a late honeymoon and holiday.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I remain a large fan of the shifters in general. Be them wolves or kitties, compared to the former book the prevolence is much smaller in this book which is a shame but refreshing when they did crop up form time to time.
What does Ashley Holt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
As someone who is dyslexic the ability to have this book as an audiobook is a big plus and wouldn't be possible without narrators willing to read/record. Ashley Holt's narration has improved along with the books leap forward in time. Complaints about a sing-song voice from the former book have been resolved with a much more pleasant normal-sounding narration voice. I only wish the sing-song style had remained for some of the voice acting as well as a larger range of voice acting for each distinct character as it can be confusing to tell who is speaking once or twice. There are some background noise that seems to be Ashley readjusting in a chair during the recording, nothing overly prevasive but could have probably been edited out or re-recorded.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
"What are you doing on holiday?" Is the first thing that jumps to mind (Probably one of the worst movie taglines) but reading the book there where several points where like a movie-go'er watching a horror I wanted to just shake mostly everyone and demand to know "What the hell are you doing". If your not okay with an audiobook being a non-interactive experiance this book will be a rough ride.
Any additional comments?
This audiobook was supplied to me by the narrator Ashley Holt for the purpose of an unbias review and I have tried to remain as unbais as possible. If you liked the first book or would have liked the first book had you read it this audiobook is a nice enough experiance. While you could probably read this book without reading the first and understand most of it, read or listen to the first book... first. Had I paid for this book I wouldn't feel disapointed or unhappy with my purchase.
Nate and Caroline's adventure continues where the previous book in the series ended. This time they intentionally find themselves south of the border, in Floriana. In this historical, fantasy version of the United States, several of the southern states had been locked out of the US to prevent the spread of the plague. Our characters are part of the movement to reopen the borders, some 80 years on, with the blessings of the American monarch. Their sudo-holiday to Floriana has the dual purpose of being the couple's holiday and their opportunity to explore Floriana to report to the king.
It should be that simple, but it isn't. Between the attempts to murder them, the annoying guard, the unpredictable weather and all around craziness, this book is an adventure more than a romance. The political climate changes as the plot progresses and with that there are big decisions to be made.
I enjoyed the adventurousness of the story. Sandy Burney has a fantastic ability to weave the fantasty with reality to make an interesting, almost realistic tapestry. That is, if werewolves and other people with supernatural abilities existed!
