    One thought on “The Prince of Midnight”

    1. "Don't let that happen to me." Her words shook. "Don't leave me to be what I'll become without you."This is a review of the audio book as well as the story itself. Once again Laura Kinsale has written an amazing novel, and Nicholas Boulton has made it real. I can’t even explain what he brings to the stories he narrates. How he makes the hero and heroine so much more than just characters in a book. He doesn’t merely read their lines, he exists in them. The people, their lives, their passions [...]

    2. Llevaba con este libro dos meses, entre que he tenido mucho tiempo y los ratos que tenía para leer no me apetecía por que el libro es horroroso, así he tardado tanto!Los personajes son odiosos, ella se puede llegar a entender en algunas cosas, pero es más seca que la mojama y él tiene más pajaritos en la cabeza Son tal para cual!Encima es una historia que no tienes por donde cogerla, unas paranoias que se montan que te entra ganas de no seguir leyendo.En fin con un par de ovarios lo he ter [...]

    3. This was the first of Laura Kinsale’s novels to appear in audiobook form, and I’m warning you now – the review is LONG and there may even be some fangirling involved . If you want the short version, however – the audio book of The Prince of Midnight is fantastic, so go and listen to it immediately!As for the longer version… I’ve been following Laura Kinsale’s blog pieces over at AudioGals in which she talks about bringing her books to audio; about how she spent a long time listenin [...]

    4. No había leido ninguna novela de esta escritora anteriormente, pero la verdad es que no me dan ganas de intentarlo de nuevo al menos mientras me acuerde. Me resultó tedioso, totalmente prescindible.Pertenece a la familia de los libros que se dejan sin acabar o que hubieses deseado dejar

    5. Y no le pongo una porque no soy tan mala y amo como escribe Laura que si no. *Respira Viridiana, respira*Me sentí estafada, pues me lo habían pintado como un libro excelente y para mí fue todo lo contrario; ¿qué es entretenida? sí, lo es, pero carece de sentido en gran parte de la historia. Y eso que adoro a Laura Kinsale. La verdad no se como pudo ser BEST SELLER. La reseña completa en el blogrivillarreal/2015/03

    6. I didn't make it further than page 35, but I'm pissed enough about another K&K bud read going down the drain to give it 1 star for now. Might come back to because if there's something I hate it's having paid $$$ for books I end up abandoning. Also, now is probably a good time to attack my massive Toblerone bar. Earlier ramblings:“Okay, so I am not actually "recommending" this one to you, I only wanted to bring it to your attention. Ahem. 1. It has Fabio on the cover (we have never read one [...]

    7. Otro libro del #RetoRita que cae!!!! Y uno de los que más pereza me daba coger ya que el solitario Gandy que le dio Cassie en su reseña no auguraba nada bueno. Pero bueno, una coge siempre cada libro con ganas de que le guste. Pues con las ganas me he quedado porque vaya libro más insufribleMe gustaría saber qué clase de porro se fumó Laura Kinsale cuando escribió este libro. Seguramente uno caducado porque es imposible que de la mente de la escritora que creó la (para mí) maravillosís [...]

    8. Read it years ago but couldn't remember it well. Just now listened to audio, narrated by Nicholas Boulton. Solid 5 stars for his near-perfect impersonations, but only 3 stars for the story itself, mainly because I didn't like the heroine.Laura Kinsale is a superb romance writer, but this story arc was frustrating. Frustrating! The downers went on far too long. Leigh was frequently unlikable. She was cruel for about 80% of the book -- it ruined the romance arc. I wanted to slap her. She was also [...]

    9. #RetoRita22Mira que me gustan los libros de Laura Kinsale, pero con el Seigneur no ha podido ser. Desde luego, la historia es atípica y no es que no me gustase la situación pero, a medida que leía, lo que pensaba que pintaba bien. me ha ido aburriendo y el libro se me ha hecho cuesta arriba.La protagonista se me ha hecho, en ocasiones, infumable. La parte de Dulce Armonía, Paloma de la Paz y toda la parentela, muy muy cuesta arriba.En realidad, lo que valoro es el trabajo de la autora al esc [...]

    10. (4º del Reto Rita) Laura Kinsale crea en esta novela un protagonista masculino formidable, de los que impactan y enamoran desde el principio. Un héroe imperfecto que me ha encantado y que se sale de lo común en el genero romántico. El premio RITA que obtuvo al Mejor Romance de 1991 creo que es indiscutible, igual que la calidad narrativa de esta autora y la riqueza de sus personajes, siempre tan bien construidos y abundantes (al menos, en lo que hasta ahora he leído de ella). La ambientaci [...]

    11. #Retorita2,5 pero sobre todo por él. Le doy 3 pues que me encanta esta escritora (seguramente se merezca 2 pero no puedo)Tengo tal dolor por lo que estoy apunto de hacer. No me creo que vaya a valorar con menos de cuatro estrellas un libro de Laura Kinsale. Creo que estoy en estado se shock. Desde mi opinión, los personajes que ha creado esta mujer (al menos los libros que yo me leído de ella) me han parecido creíbles, bien elaborados, no sé, he conseguido entenderlos en todo momento sus ac [...]

    12. I'm giving this one such a low rating partially because of the great depth of my disappointment in the novel. Kinsale is usually an author I really enjoy, but this book had some Issues. It started off promising. Leigh is a woman who dresses like a man and goes off to France to find the mythical Prince of Midnight, a highwayman who once terrified the English countryside. She finds him and is disappointed: he's a recluse living in a crumbling castle, and he's half-deaf and suffers from fits of ver [...]

    13. Contains SPOILERS!!!!!I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am not a raving fan of Kinsale but I did enjoy this one. It was different in that the majority of the book was written from the hero's point of view. This made for a nice change. What also made a nice change was that S.T. the hero fell in love and recognised his feelings way before Leigh, the heroine. I also liked that BOTH S.T. and Leigh had flawed characters. It wasn't just that S.T. was deaf and suffered from vertigo, but that he fell in [...]

    14. 3.75 Will write later. On vacation. I think this is my fourth Laura Kinsale and I am still loving them. I see now that what she does very well is present us with tortured, disabled, defective or damaged heroes and heroines. There are no perfect romance novel caricatures here. Although they tend to be physically beautiful they have serious baggage or challenges. She handles this very well. As the story evolves the characters work through their issues or resolve their problems to some degree while [...]

    15. 1a reseña: Me suelen gustar mucho los libros de Laura Kinsale, pero con esta protagonista no puedoooooor2a reseña: vuelto a leer con motivo del #RetoRita y mantengo lo puntuación, es bastante flojo para ser de la misma autora que esa maravilla que es Flores en la Tormenta

    16. (Sigh) I've most definitely fallen in love with Nicholas Boulton's voice. He has the most seductive and romantic accent ever. I feel like swooning. (sigh)

    17. Algo falla en este libro y no tengo muy claro lo que es. Me ha gustado la narración, ¡qué digo! me ha encantado cada descripción y cada palabra, ha sido un gusto leerlo en ese aspecto. Pero sobran las primeras doscientas páginas. Algunas situaciones planteadas eran verdaderamente absurdas y, en algunos casos, hasta surrealistas. No me creía para nada al personaje del Señor de la Medianoche. Ni un poco. A medida que avanzaba, sucedían cosas sin ninguna lógica y sin que más adelante tuvi [...]

    18. I haven't actually read this book, but listening to the recently released audio version narrated -- I should say perhaps "enacted" -- by Nicholas Boulton was a wonderful experience. At first, the plot reminded me of a Georgian 'Cat Ballou' (an old movie, for you young 'uns, where Jane Fonda wants washed-up gunslinger Lee Marvin to emerge from retirement to avenge her family). There's that same feeling of disappointment and chagrin when she finds that her legendary hero is a drunken mess who's ut [...]

    19. 2,5 estrellas para esta novela que se me ha hecho mucho más larga de lo que esperaba, con partes muy interesantes y otras que solo me provocaban ganas de saltarme líneas. No le pongo menos estrellas porque hay una gran parte de él, el señor de la medianoche, que me ha gustado mucho, sobre todo ese miedo casi infantil o esa chulería tonta que nos enamora a las lectoras y que le aporta cierto humor a las conversaciones. Ella es un tema a parte, que da para una larga conversación. Tengo que m [...]

    20. What can I say about Laura Kinsale? She would be one of my writing heroines and one of my all-time favorite authors even if all she'd ever written was Flowers from the Storm. (A masterpiece of historical romance; read it if you haven't already!) Anything else she writes that I love is just icing on the cake. The Prince of Midnight was some very delicious icing!A summary of this novel's plot sounds so bizarre. Lady Leigh Strachan, a beautiful young woman whose happy, bucolic family life was shatt [...]

    21. Narrated by Nicholas BoultonIt’s finally here. Romance listeners have eagerly awaited The Prince of Midnight, the first audio release from Laura Kinsale’s fascinating backlist. Earlier this year, Ms. Kinsale announced that her entire backlist (twelve titles) would be released in audio during 2013 and into 2014 and now we have a taste of Kinsale’s skillful writing combined with Nicholas Boulton’s talented performance. It’s sheer audio perfection.Once a famous highwayman, S.T. Maitland i [...]

    22. I disliked this book and had to force myself to finish it. The hero, S.T. Maitland is a likeable guy. An aging highwayman with infirmities due to an explosion. The heroine, Leigh Strachan, is irritating, rude and aggravating beyond measure. The interplay between the two should have been good but she is just bitchy. All in all, something to be skipped at all costs. Definitely not worth reading.

    23. This is only the fourth Kinsale book I've read, but one thing I've realized I'll never have to worry about is encountering a cookie-cutter story in one of her novels. I never think to myself, while reading one of her books, "this is a lovely twist on < insert historical romance trope >." I can't even say that modern historical romance authors seem to have cribbed Kinsale's plotlines and manner of storytelling, because I've yet to encounter contemporary books in this subgenre that are as wo [...]

    24. I'm quite convinced that Laura Kinsale is one of the best Romance author's of the past few years. Her stories are complex, engaging, original, and heavy on the history. She has yet to disapoint me. Leigh is on a mission to avenge her family's killing. Her foe is a religious minister (we would now call him a cult leader) who turned the town against her family for one reason or another. She seeks the help of S.T Maitland, the famed Prince of Midnighta fabled highwayman. What she finds isn't exactl [...]

    25. This was a fun change to the sort of historical romance books I normally read. The hero and heroine were both flawed characters, but despite that they were both interesting and, mostly, likable. I enjoyed the slow burning romance. The plot was quite interesting with an injured former highwayman being lured out of retirement to help the heroine seek vengeance against those who wronged her. I'll be happy to try more Laura Kinsale books in the future. Overall 3.5 stars. Audio note: The narrator Nic [...]

    26. I LOVE Laura Kinsale for her depth of emotion and effortless imagery but this book really fell short for me. The best part, by far was the ending , the "liasion a cheval" (quite an erotic fantasy for an equestrienne!!) but the main characters were so irritably inconsistent - running hot and cold throughout.I never liked Leigh at all until the epilogue! And even ST flip-flopped so much that it was hard to know who he really was, other than a masochist for following her.I also didn't care for the [...]

    27. This is my second Kinsale. Prince of Midnight had a tough battle to follow Flowers from the Storm for me, as Flowers was totally engrossing and fabulous. So how did I find the Prince:Well the ‘Prince’, S.T was human, real, a broken down fellow, full of human quirks, shilly shallying, ineptitudes, highs and lows. You might love him one moment and say ‘really’ the next, but that is why one can empathise, he is one of us as we all try to get out of the dragging mud pool of life. ST and his [...]

    28. It was between a four star and a five star for me but I decided to go with a five star because Laura Kinsale can do no wrong and has yet to disappoint me. Plus, while I think I still prefer Flowers from the Storm and Seize the Fire, I did enjoy this a lot more than My Sweet Folly which was a four star. I'll come back and write a proper review when I've had time to get my thoughts together. I must admit I wasn't too pleased when I saw there was an epilogue as I don't really think it was needed, b [...]

    29. I know beggars can't be choosers, but I can't help itThis book has a lot of my 5 star tags but Kinsale just didn't seem to know what to do with them. I liked the deaf-mountain-man-hermit thing and the emotionally-unstable thing but these were so inconsistent that it wasn't even entertaining. The leading man would go from a gimpy puss to Zoro in a split second; I would have rathered he stay the gimpy puss, he was likable then.Also, just as a PS, this is one of those travel books where the whole t [...]
