I like Elton John's music but wouldn't call myself a fan but I just loved this book. It's funny and sad and I think much better than the film Rocketman. And the performance of Taran Egerton is really fantastic!

Great story - enthusiastically delivered

I've been following the Ravenmaster on Twitter for a while, and as I enjoyed the tweets with pcitures and videos of Merlina, I was all too happy to puchase this book. The story is very enjoyable and delivered with great enthusiasm, that shows the passion of Christopher Skaife for his occupation as well as his love and admiration for the ravens.
It dips enough into history that the listener can learn a bit of history along the way. I gladly give the whole book 5 stars.

Only the interview at the end was in my personal opinion a bit superfluous because the answeres are in the book itself.

Intriguing and surprising

I sailed through this story within 3 days and enjoyed it quite a lot. It didn't have unneccessay lengthes and was never boring.
The narrator didn't impress me much but the story itself was wonderful; obviously written by an author who took her time to study Mycroft Holmes and pay attention to his character as well as idiosyncrasies. Aside from Mycroft Holmes himself, the other characters were well developed and I found one o two which I'd enjoy seeing again if the author wrote another story within that universe.
I would recommend reading or listening to Janina Woods' first book in the series "Mycroft Holmes and the Adventure of the Desert Wind" first but it isn't necessary to enjoy this story.
