2 Are Better Than One

I really liked the narration. She has a great English lilt, and handles American and Cockney accents well. I generally knew who each character was from the narration.
I was grateful to be able to listen to both The Witch's Daughter and the Return of the Witch 's Daughter in sequence and immediately one after the other. The story was generally well thought out, but I would have liked to know more about how Elizabeth learned her craft. The use of flashback to tell about both Elizabeth's and Tegan's life experiences was a clever and useful technique. Although the first book can stand alone, the conclusion in the 2nd book is well written and satisfying.
I would love to hear what Elizabeth and Tegan do next....

This book wraps up the story of Elizabeth and Teagan perfectly but I still hope for another story with these characters.
