Ndeed but she could have one with a flaw or two to make her a bit believable obviously flaws weren t pre ordainedAs for the performance I am going to get on my accent soapbox again I m afraid This is set in England and all of the characters are English so why couldn t they have used an English narrator The American accent immediately annoyed me not because there was anything wrong with it per se but because it was just wrong for the story But let s just accept for a moment that the accent is American please please Sabrina The Girl With A Hole In Her Heart don t try ando a British accent Everyone sounded like a bad version of Joanna Lumley even the men And worse the Druid Priestess suddenly spouted random cockney words Why It wasn t as if the whole character spoke cockney just the odd word here or there I cringed every time It was a shame perhaps my enjoyment of the whole book was affected by the performance but I firmly believe that if your book is set in Britain it would be a whole lot convincing if the accent was true to lifeThis audiobook was given by the author narrator or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom Review of Audio Format Very Well DoneA post Arthurian tale a bit of a twist Gwendolyn is born from mystery

Ight English accent this pulls you out of the story somewhat For me this is not really an issue but I know for others it is This audiobook was provided by the author narrator or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoomcom The ueen of Knights by David Wind 55 starsMuch of the focus of this story seems to be in England and is based on the love between the Lady Gwendolyn and the Knight Miles Delong whose fates are Collins Dictionary Of Astronomy determined by mystical powers However there is a lot of stimulating rivalry later onThis novel is woven with many myths and fantasy elements which I enjoyed Much of the beginning is like a romanticream with vibrant colours and beautiful settings combined to create a scene that is MEMORABLE BOTH TO THE CHARACTERS AND THE READERIT STARTS both to the characters and the readerIt starts a steady pace but it picks up in style when we are introduced to the hulking cruel bull of a Knight Morgan of Guildswood who is prepared to kill anybody who stands in the way of his marriage to Gwendolyn When Gwendolyn falls in love with Miles Delong a rivalry begins Expect very well escribed and exciting battles in melees classic confrontations between and evil These battles were
