Publisher's Summary

England, 1422: Owen Tudor, a Welsh servant, waits in Windsor Castle to meet his new mistress, the beautiful and lonely Queen Catherine of Valois, widow of the warrior king, Henry V. Her infant son is crowned king of England and France, and while the country simmers on the brink of civil war, Owen becomes her protector. They fall in love, risking Owen's life and Queen Catherine's reputation, but how do they found the dynasty that changes British history - the Tudors?

    "First ever narrated book
    "

    Normally I love to read books physically, I found this to be totally enjoyable in a gender I would normally give a miss. I have to honestly state I found the book totally engaging and in a way addictive. Once started it was difficult to stop.
    I will now look to more of this type of book, in addition to my standard reading fare of thrillers and crime fiction, and so on. The book is certainly well written and narrated by Ian that I was hooked after the first minute.
    Audible books was a trial for me, to see if I could actually cope just listening to the words being spoken, instead of having my nose in an actual book. Overall I am really happy that I did so, and have downloaded further books via the app to my smartphone, to continue this relaxing method of book reading.
    Would I recommend this first book of the Tudor trilogy to others, certainly. It gives the reader the feel of being back in time, and observing the story being told.

    "Great story, poor narrator"

    I am a major history buff and I especially love the Tudor stories so I was really looking forward to this trilogy. The story itself is good and definitely worth a read if like me you enjoy this type of history. I didn't know much about Owen Tudor before so it was very interesting. What let this audiobook down was the narrator, who I unfortunately have to say was extremely poor. All voices and characters sounded the same, he was extremely robotic and wasn't 'acting' the story as well as I'm used to other narrators doing. I felt like it was just any old person reading the book to me with no real experience of being a narrator. I am definitely going to read the next book in the trilogy Jasper and I am relieved it is narrated by somebody different, hopefully they will be a lot better.

    "Not recommended"

    Dreadful narrator .... had to stop after a few chapters. Too slow and deliberate with wooden delivery - in particular of the dialogues.

    "Good story"

    Well written but read a little like a shopping list.

    Interesting to hear the wars of the roses from this perspective.

    Story
    "Love this stuff."

    But it had some inaccuracies that didn't make sense. It wasn't enough to make me stop listening because it was a good listen. I just don't understand the point of killing off his daughter Margaret as a newborn. It's nowhere near as shameful as Showtime's The Tudors mishmashing Margaret and Mary into one person-and I didn't stop watching-but still. Ah well. There's not much out there that focuses on Owen and Jasper, so, for that, I'm grateful to Mr. Riches.
