This is really not a good fit for this trilogy and his performance is so bad it's distracting. The latter two narrators performed the Jewels trilogy and the Born In trilogy, respectively and they are fantastic! What would have made this romance irresistible? Better narrator. Please re-record this book with a new narrator like you did with Whiskey Beach! Is there anything you would change about this book?
The narrator! He is awful. I have gotten used to Nora Roberts books having better narrators. I going to get the kindle book and finish reading it there! Haven't finished it yet. I'm going to read it on my Kindle.source site
Shadow Spell: Book Two of the Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy (Unabridged)
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Smyth? Susan Ericksen. She knows how to put life into characters and how to do an Irish accent. From Nora Roberts, yes. Alan Smyth, no. What other book might you compare Shadow Spell to and why? Compare it to the first of the trilogy, Dark Witch, and there was a better narrator. Not perfect, as she made the Irish women sound like old ladies, but the American voices were better.
And she could actually perform the book instead of reading it, and her accent was at least believable. Irish accent is off, the inflections are wrong, the colloquialisms not emphasized properly. I don't like his voices for the characters. He pauses too much in the narration, and doesn't "perform" the book so much as read it.
Check the narrator before I order the last of the trilogy. I may just buy the paperback. So far the story is good, but I don't think I can stand to listen to the whole thing. I will buy the paperback and read it so the narration doesn't ruin it for me. I can hardly listen to this title, although I am a devoted Nora Roberts fan, the narration is so awful. I bought the kindle book and returned the audio.
It was terrible. The narrator lisped, paused very awkwardly and just generally didn't put any emotion into his voice. I also couldn't tell who was talking because the voices all blended together. Would you listen to Shadow Spell again? I agree with every one else.
The narration is the most terrible I have ever heard. I am not even half way thru and I think I am going to have to have a refund. I can not listen to this. This is awful!!!!
He has made this book sad The accents are totally off I am sad I have waited and waited for this book to come out and now wish I would have just read it instead of listening to it Loved it. Can't wait to read next one. Narrator realy good. All characters believable and recognisable. I have the trilogy in my ebooks. I was delighted to find them in audible.
However the narrator in this book was better than the first,why does Audible have American narrators trying to do Irish accents. I am Welsh my son and myself consider ourselves of far better Irish Accents than the people you employ. This is not the first time That I have been disappointed. Only the first time I have submitted a Review. However the narrators doing Welsh Accents are Perfect for the areas that the stories come from. So Well done on those books. Wallace Great fan of Audible. I wish the trilogy had one narrator throughout as I found it hard to get used to characters with different voices from the first book.
The story line is engaging to put it mildly! A love story with so much more , the story telling is brilliant! Now for the third book!!!! Thank you again. I read the first book and feel in love with the story that I couldn't wait to order the actual book so downloaded it on audible instead. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Book was good but the narrator was changed and that always throws me off. I know it is Connor's Story and changing it to a man is logical but Katherine did a great job in the 1st one and really it is very off putting changing people around mid way through a trilogy : Waiting for the 3rd now!
What other book might you compare Shadow Spell to, and why? Dark Witch, Key Series, Most of Nora Robert's books follow a similar storyline so you can sort of see where they are going before you get there :. Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? Not really but I smiled a lot whilst listening to the both the first one and this one. What disappointed you about Shadow Spell? It was so predictable. What will your next listen be? I am going to leave off Nora Roberts for a while.
Wont bother with part 3 when it comes out.

Most Helpful Most Recent. Kate Thoroughly enjoyed it! Kindle Customer Shadowspell Full of suspense, adventure and laughter too Loved it. Kelly Pasalich Miriam Enjoyable Love Nora Robert's story. Nora Roberts How could the performance have been better? Margaret-Ann Narration is terrible What did you love best about Shadow Spell? Eleanore So disappointed by the narration What did you like best about Shadow Spell? JulieAnn What is up with this narrator?
Amazon Customer Kathryn Helman Stilted narration What did you like best about Shadow Spell? Kristina Tina Horrible narration Would you listen to Shadow Spell again? They theorize, strategize, argue, laugh, and just be a family at that table. The teasing and playfulness they all share is wonderfully done. I also like the connection each of the cousins has with their animal talismans that have also descended through the centuries to help in this fight against evil.
