That's What I'm Talking About

Quickie #Audiobook Review: One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews

One Fell Sweep: Innkeeper Chronicles, Book 3 - Nancy Yost Literary Agency, Ilona Andrews, Renée Raudman

One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews,
Narrated by Renee Raudman
(Innkeeper Chronicles #3)
Speed: 1.25x


My "re-read" of One Fell Sweep in audiobook format was perfection and served to further endear this amazing series to me. Both intellectually stimulating and emotionally satisfying, the world of Dina Demille and the Innkeepers is wholly unique and fascinating.


Ms. Raudman brings to life the essence of each character, giving each his or her own unique and identifiable voice. She captures emotion: excitement, pain, sorrow, desire, madness, in each scene. I love her narrative voice for Dina, mixing her patience with a slight hint of southern charm. The team of Renee Raudman and Ilona Andrews is an auto buy for me.

My Rating: A
Narration: A+
