by Nora Roberts | Read by Katherine Kellgren

Katherine Kellgren narrates the author’s Cousins O’Dwyer novel with a bravado that will bewitch her listeners. Long ago, Sorcha, a witch and healer, began a feud with Cabhan, a fearsome sorcerer. Now as her descendant, Iona, arrives in Ireland to begin a new life with her cousins, she finds an ancient evil still haunting the family—and it’s waiting for her. The ambiance of Ireland is palpable in this audiobook, thanks to Kellgren’s nearly flawless accent and inflections. She does a remarkable job making each character’s voice distinct and the emotions that bind them all instantly tangible. Throughout the book, she emphasizes every shift in tension and intensity, bringing each lush scene to life. B.E.K. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
