Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Resoundingly, yes. This is a story that is better to listen to than to read (and I typically don't even enjoy audiobooks). While recovering from a concussion, I downloaded a few of my favorite books (under doctor's orders not to read). I couldn't get into others, but this narration was fantastic and I found myself totally captivated for most of the story.
At the same time, there are just a few parts that drag. Hang on through them, because the story is worth it!
What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?
I loved this narrator. She's fantastic -- I was sometimes amazed at her ability to do different voices and had to check to see whether she was the sole narrator. She was the voice of Liadan.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Oh, quite a few, but I don't want to spoil it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Well, I always listen to audiobooks when I'm doing something else, so it was good enough for that. I wouldn't suggest this book for devoting all your time to.
Would you be willing to try another book from Juliet Marillier? Why or why not?
I would because I like the first book a lot. This book was much more mediocre, so it makes me less enthusiastic.
What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her accent makes it feel more authentic, like you are hearing this book around a camp fire.
Could you see Son of the Shadows being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
No. Just, no.
Any additional comments?
This book starts out well enough and I enjoyed it. Yet the longer it dragged on, the more boring it became. I feel like this book is longer than the story can truly sustain.

Brilliant continuation of the Sevenwaters stories - took awhile to get used to the new voice after the first book, but still brilliantly done.
Juliete is an amazing author, this book series has me completely hooked. The narrator this time was far easier on the ear and was able to pronounce Irish names properly, the story picked up almost 18 years after the 1st book and it felt as if it flowed seamlessly. A pleasure to listen too. I was completely captivated by Liadan and Brans relationship.
