Listener Opinions

    " This is a great book to listen to, as I did in the car with a book "borrowed" from the library!!!! I tell you, if you enjoyed Nancy Drew as a kid, you'll like Elizabeth Peters' "Borrower of the Night" as an adult! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 1/27/2014

    " As much as I enjoy the Amelia Peabody series, I thought this one was very slow and plodding. It does not inspire me to try the next one in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn | 1/27/2014

    " Not my cup of tea. Not enough action - I prefer my mysteries with more suspense and this moved too slowly for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacia | 1/26/2014

    " Totally different character. Still rich in history. In another part of the world. I loved these as much as the Amelia Peabody series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malle | 1/22/2014

    " I adore the Vicky Bliss books. I wish there were more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosa | 1/22/2014

    " Not my favourite in the Bliss series but reread it so that I can start the John Smyth and Vicki Bliss ones. Those are great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 1/12/2014

    " A diversion. Not as good as the Peabody series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vi | 1/6/2014

    " Without a doubt, Elizabeth Peters is one of the best mystery writers that I have ever come across. I adore Vicky Bliss just as much as I adore Amelia Peabody. The problem I had with this book was that all of the men were incredibly annoying. I'm definitely going to keep reading though because of the amazing protagonist, the complex and well-written mysteries.... and a Smythe character I've been hearing about who gets introduced later on... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 1/4/2014

    " Not romantic enough for me, compared to Peters' others. ;) "

    " excellent novel with vicki bliss "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee Anne | 11/26/2013

    " Re-reading, not quite as interesting as I'd remembered. Still, an interesting and clever mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simba | 9/9/2013

    " Pretty fun - on to the rest of the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aelliana | 1/1/2013

    " The story was slow to start, but it got better. Still, I'm glad I started the series with book number two. Would have been nice to have read this before no. 4, since Tony shows up there, but it's not importent for the plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tamara | 11/26/2012

    " It isn't that it was a bad book and the plot was good. I didn't find Vicky as likable as the Emersons. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 11/18/2012

    " Narrator's voices were too similar and at times it was difficult to know which character was speaking. Plot was a little melodramatic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 7/26/2011

    " Better than most of her mystery/adventure/romances. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Robinson | 7/12/2011

    " I love a good mystery, and this is a start to a great series with Vicki Bliss as the main character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 6/29/2011

    " Perhaps a bit dated, but the mystery and suspense is decent and I am a sucker for the art history aspect of this series. Unlikely and sometimes annoyingly self-deprecating heroine- how likely is a blonde bombshell medievalist? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay | 2/11/2011

    " Interesting premise, truly terrible characters. I was rooting for everyone to die at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mailis | 1/27/2011

    " If you love Agatha Christie, you will probably love this too. I cannot but feel closeness to Vicky Bliss, with her saucy ideas and robust passion for life. No nonsense woman, like Peters love them to create, mixed in a haunted castle whodunit, where the mystery lies in present and past. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 1/26/2011

    " As much as I enjoy the Amelia Peabody series, I thought this one was very slow and plodding. It does not inspire me to try the next one in the series. "

    " Read the book predicable

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 10/25/2010

    " Solidly fun reads that are perfect for curl-up on the couch with tea fall reading. "

    " It isn't that it was a bad book and the plot was good. I didn't find Vicky as likable as the Emersons. "

    " I'm a big fan of the Amelia Peabody books, so I tried this one, but I just had a really hard time getting through most of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 6/14/2010

    " Decent mystery, not as good as the Amelia Peabody series. I have heard this is the worst in the Vicky Bliss series, so I'll give another one a shot before abandoning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee Anne | 5/29/2010
