Sintesi dell'editore

A string of unexplained, gruesome deaths brings fear and uncertainty to the streets of Ruritania’s capital.

And it could not have happened at a worse time. The planned visit by the Vice Chancellor of Jermania to commence peace talks is thrown into jeopardy. Will all the preparation for the negotiations come to nothing? Will the brutal war between the two nations escalate once again?

Meanwhile, the spate of thefts from wealthy homes continues. Who is responsible? And how can they be stopped?

And who is the mysterious figure who continually gains illegal access to the city apothecary?

With many conflicting and intertwining agendas, this proud and noble city faces the very real danger of becoming a nest of vipers.

loved it as much as the first one

seriously when I finished the first book I couldn't go to sleep and started the second one and I'm blaming the author the books were so good and I enjoyed them so much that I want to forget about my library and listen to them again but I do have a lot of books to listen to but maybe I will return to those books and listen to them again

A good second book.

An enjoyable book, with great narration. Not your usual type of story, but is worth it. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Great Listen!

Ruritanian Rogues Book 2 “A Nest of Vipers” By Richard Storry; initially I wasn’t sure if this genre would hold my interest but wow was I wrong. Immediately after finishing Book 1 “A Looming of Vultures” I went into Book 2 “A Nest of Vipers” what a great second book! I love the teasing between Willy and his master, and there are more twists in book 2, I’m really enjoying this genre and looking forward to more. Narrated by: Jake Urry who is by far one of my favorite, I could listen to him read gibberish and I’d be captivated. Recommended!

Hooked! I can't wait for Volume III.

Richard Story has a great vocabulary and paints a vivid picture. I love the intrigue and all the witty banter between Willy and his master.

All the twists and turns held my attention throughout!

Loved Jake Urry's accent. All the characters were so civilized!

Fabulous

He's a cheeky chappie that Richard Storry! He writes a brilliant tale of duplicity and skulduggery, all of it with a sarcastic slant; an edge of black humour. I absolutely adore the tongue in cheek aura of these books, and Mr Storry has very cleverly ensured that I listen to the next in the series! Almost unbelievably, the wit of this tale is raised to a higher level due to the masterful narration of Jake Urry. How does he do it, time and again? Whether it's a baron, a servant or a sexually excited lady, he manages to give them a whole personality and back story through their voices. Mr Urry is a narrator beyond compare and anything he blesses with his voice is worth listening to. 5 stars and a standing ovation from me.

Still the rat munched away happily...

A superb second story set amongst the glitterati of Ruritania, so atmospheric it is almost possible to hear the medals clink and jowls tremble. The combining of of the pomposity of the high officials and the titled with humour, as well as the background horror as cloaked figures meet by lantern light to plot murder and mayhem is simply delicious, reminiscent of a mixing of the 1963 film, The Raven, starring, amongst others, Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre, and the 1959 Peter Sellers' film, The Mouse that Roared. A balance of horror and humour.
Whilst Ruritania and Jermanica attempt to end the long time war by holding peace talks, there are some who would prefer the hostilities not to stop. People start dying horribly, apparently poisoned. And Willie is in despair of ever getting his master and friend, Baron Rudolph Von Meyerling, to cease his nefarious ways. Even to the extent of refusing him his favourite chocolate Tiffin.

If the story alone were not delicious enough, it is read by the superb Jake Urry, whose voice can be both warmly inclusive and simultaneously chilling. He is pace perfect, charismatic, and his portrayal of the various protagonists from the military men to the unhappy Willie are always individually suited. He lifts the story to even greater heights ( or should that be depths?).

A great book to cause both creepy tingles and smiles. My thanks to the rights holder for freely gifting me a complimentary copy of A Nest of Vipers, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. Although this is a stand alone, I recommend that the reader first gets to know the quirky characters in all of their rather pompous glory in the first Ruritanian Rogues story, A Looming of Vultures, also read by Mr.Urry. But it's certainly not essential - just peep in, eavesdrop and enjoy.
