Summary

King Richard has made peace with Saladin, but must run a gauntlet of enemies to get home from the Crusade. While England waits for her King, Prince John spares neither lives nor fortune to usurp his brother's crown. Roland Inness and Millicent de Laval once more find themselves at the centre of a growing civil war. Each will play a crucial role in deciding who will ultimately sit on the throne of England. The Ransomed Crown is the rousing conclusion to The Saga of Roland Inness, though not likely to be the end of Roland's story. The author is working on a new Roland Inness tale to be released in late 2017.

Good stories very poorly read.

It’s a good thing the stories are engaging as the reading is very poor. I am managing to stick with it but have come close to giving up several times. He regularly stresses the wrong word or gives a distracting inflection. Worst of all is the breathy delivery of the dialogue that makes all the characters sound the same and all a bit weak. It’s like he is telling a bed time child’s story not a historical adventure of swords, death and blood. Sir William marshal the greatest knight who ever lived sound like he couldn’t have fought his way out of a paper bag. Biggest shock is he is reading all the books. A good narrator can raise a bad book above the rest and a bad narrator will ruin a good book. Alas this is the later situation.
And the city in the holy land is pronounced AKER not Arkrer

The Ransomed Crown

We very much enjoyed this audio book. We were disappointed to not find the 5th book of this series in audio. We will be reading it.
