My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to admit, I really enjoyed listening to this short mystery. It took me several days due to other commitments. I didn’t have much time to get on the computer this week, and when I was in bed I had three other books to read, two of them dead tree books, but overall it was very enjoyable. I like that it kept me guessing right up until the end. There were a few surprise twists that I was not expecting. That was good.

I enjoyed the narrator, but if I had one complaint it was that she did not do male voices that well. I would have thought that would have been a necessity since the main character was supposed to be a male. Oops! Did I give something away? Probably not since this is actually book two in a series. If you have read book one you would know that our protagonist masquerades as male, but is, in fact, a woman. Still there were other characters that were actually male, and she did not do them justice either. I don’t think she can do an Irish accent either because early in the book there is a character that the author describes as Irish, yet Dawe doesn’t even try to do an Irish accent for him. Her German accent is pretty good, though, at least inasmuch as it sounded like what I thought it should have sounded like.

I will give this one 4 stars for the story, 4 stars for the narrator and 4 stars overall.

I received this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review!

    I’ve been eyeballing this one. I like the historical mystery bit and then when you toss in airships – well, I get all giddy inside. Too bad the narrator wasn’t up to the challenge of male character voices.
