Juliet’s mother died and she is coping by writing her letters at her grave but who […]

Audiobook Reviews: The Queen of Attolia, The King of Attolia, Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner

The Sound: As stated in my previous review of the first book, The Thief, I love Steve West! Will always be a fave narrator for me — so much emotion in his narrating! The Story: The switch from first person to third person POV caught me a bit off guard but it is necessary in this sequel as there are so many different things going on in different locations. I don’t think I disliked the POV switch […]
