    I'd agree with Charlie on Morgan le Fay - across all of your works, you've touched on what I think would be the closest to her essence, as she was many different things.

    I'm happy that you came back to this, as I love the Arthurian legends and your voice just seems to be perfectly suited to "teller of tales".

      That’s lovely to hear, I love reading things like this, and I love characters like Morgan 😍

    You reading me a bedtime story takes me back to my childhood 🤗 This is so refreshing and I may have to look into this story.

      I hope you do, it’s a great story! And it was written about 600 years ago to boot!

    Wow i didn't know you did Bedtime stories too Eve. You just became even more amazing to me. I love bedtime stories & being tucked I'll admit. Around the 4 or 5 min mark; i was out for the count 😴. You could count to 100 & only your voice could wake me back up from such a wonderful audio experience you given me. I didn't even know these existed. I sure hope you'll revisit this series again after your other projects are done. I love how your voice can soothe me. No bad or worrying thoughts exist when im here. So thank you & it's great to see you feeling creative lately 😊. Just make sure not to burn yourself out ok. Have the most wonderful day & keep being the best 🍀

      Thanks Geo! I’ve been running behind lately, trying to get to everything, but I should be able to record tomorrow . At least I have three more chapters of this story already recorded 😍

    Sorry Mom, but I think there's a new storyteller in town and she has a unique way of tucking me in at the end. 😜

    I listened back over the previous chapters. I had never really heard the story of Uther. So many focus on his legendary son. While I much enjoyed Chapter 3 and the love of Igraine and Uther so touchingly captured by your voice, I have to say that this chapter is my favorite. I've always loved the story of the Sword in the Stone, having grown up watching the Disney classic. Something I realized here that I didn't back then (although the movie does cover this) is that Arthur does not draw the sword for himself. He does it for his brother, Kay. The man destined to be king is the one who has no desire to rule but simply has the desire to help another. Who could be a more suitable king? 😀

    It is a delight to hear you read. As much as I enjoy your erotic audios, I think I could spend my days just listening to you read stories every night, letting your calmiing, honeyed voice be my guide through worlds I can hardly imagine. I went searching for other stories you've read and came across Born Yesterday. I can't wait to begin listening to it, even putting my Outlander audiobook on hold, to experience a new story through your voice. 😘

      Thank you, I hope you enjoy it! I had to do several accents and voices for that book, it was a lot of fun

  • CharlieRomeoLima on 2018-02-05 22:08:15 (UTC)

    Eve, with the broad range of accents and characters you portray in your audios, here I imagine you speaking in the guise of the inscrutable Morgan le Fay, an Arthurian character who has proven her literary resilience through the centuries with a similar versatility in roles such as powerful enchantress, benevolent healer, sorceress rivaling the powers of Merlin, wily villainess, and femme fatale seductress. I don't think she's yet been mentioned in the chapters you have read thus far, but I would not be at all surprised if she is pulling some strings in the background. :)

    I wish to second Storm's evaluation of your narration: "Eve, your voice is sultry, even when reading Arthurian legends." And thank you for continuing with this series; your voice brings the work to life in ways that merely reading the text itself cannot.

      Thank you Charlie ❤️I debated reading this series in a British accent but somehow this vocal style seemed more comfortable for it
