Summary

In medieval England, duty is everything, personal honor is more valued than life itself, and homosexuality is not tolerated by the church or society.
Sir Christian Brandon was raised in a household where he was hated for his unusual beauty and for his parentage. Being smaller than his six brutish half-brothers, he learned to survive by using his wits and his gift for strategy, earning him the nickname the Crow.
Sir William Corbett, a large and fierce warrior known as the Lion, has pushed his unnatural desires down all his life. He's determined to live up to his own ideal of a gallant knight. When he takes up a quest to rescue his sister from her abusive lord of a husband, he's forced to enlist the help of Sir Christian. It's a partnership that will test every strand of his moral fiber, and, eventually, his understanding of the meaning of duty, honor, and love.

Superb!

If you could sum up The Lion and the Crow in three words, what would they be?

Dramatic, Moving, Exciting

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved both William and Christian, but if forced to pick one I suppose it's Christian. He was so determined to do whatever was needed to prove his love and admiration.

What does Scott Richard Ehredt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He brought the book to life and his voice was perfect for this historical story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were several, but the epilogue had me shedding a few tears.

Any additional comments?

It's not often that a book will move me to tears, but the wonderful story and excellent narration did just that. I cannot recommend this highly enough and I know I will listen again. Without doubt one of the best books I have listened to!

Great book, poor narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of The Lion and the Crow to be better than the print version?

print version

What other book might you compare The Lion and the Crow to, and why?

Maybe Greenwode by J Tullos Hennig. They're both very moving and with excellent male leads.

Did Scott Richard Ehredt do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

I suppose he tried, but on the whole, I found his narration disappointing

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It certainly was.

Any additional comments?

This is a well written and very moving historical romance with two strong male protagonists. I've never had this author before but I'll definitely be on the lookout for more. The only disappointment was the narrator and his inability to pronounce simple words. Castle was sometimes pronounced with either a long or short voul sound, shone became shown, clash became clarsh. That was weird. Still, if you can get past that, it's a book well worth reading.

Scott Richard Ehredt is PERFECT

Any additional comments?

I will admit I was hesitant for this audio book - not only because it's a historical romance, which can be an iffy thing when dealing with M/M unless it's AU, but because when I listened to the sample the narrator, Scott Richard Ehredt, sounded like a stuffy old British guy who would bore me to death. God, was I wrong!

Scott Richard Ehredt is PERFECT. He blew me away. Seriously...Blew. Me. Away.

The characters and time (late 1200's to early 1300's) are beautifully, and even lovingly, portrayed. The only thing I didn't love about this was the ending (even though it totally fits). The ending killed me. I hated the ending. I wish someone had warned me.

RECOMMENDED!

Rungs above on the ladder of homo-narratives

So well written!

Situated in time and space, rich with historical imagery, and not lacking in steam.

Far from shallow 'boy meets boy' contemporary ear fills: this narrative was cleverly written and performed with excellence.

The hopeless romantic and history nerd in me dreaded hearing "we hope you have enjoyed this audible...."
