What beautiful, jewel-like scenes set in a golden, unforgiving desert. Descriptions of a land I would not hesitate to visit again. Mr Beaulieu is a master of his craft. There are no dragging, monotonous descriptions of scenes but crisp, jewels that my imagination can savour. In spite of its length and the back flashes, I felt no impatience for the main story to continue. The story and the experiences of the characters which shaped them, unfolded likes the petals of the deadly flowers so central to the themes.
The narrator was the perfect choice to read this narrative. The only problem was that she sometimes paused in the wrong place before finishing a sentence or thought.,
I cannot wait to buy the next audio book.
I loved this audio book so much I found a limited ed hardback via Bradley's Facebook page to a place called the quill & claw.
This story takes me back to when I was young reading Arabian nights stories.
This is the first I'd heard of Bradley so I was a bit worried about using a credit
So glad I did
I highly recommend it.
I'm not going to bother filling you in on what it's all about as there are so many reviews already for this book on the web.
But as for the audio book, the narrator does a great job

This was was a disappointment. I didn't like any of the characters, the storyline set in the past felt like padding and it was just boring in places.
Narration was good.
I won't 'reading' any further books in the series.

I'd read a few reviews of this on both Audible and Goodreads and was looking forward to getting engrossed in a great story. However, I just couldn't! After listening to 7 hours I've had to give up. The characters are interesting, along with setting, and there's been some quite good action. The problem is it just sends me to sleep as it's not engaging.
I think the problem is the narrator. She's certainly not bad and I've enjoyed another book she's narrated. But it seems she wasn't able to give enough drama to the characters and situations. I wonder if a different narrator or reading it in print would make it a more enjoyable book.
