Choosing the Highlander by Jessi Gage "...The narrator did a GREAT job! The variety of accents and the fact that she could do a male character who actually sounded like a male not just a female pretending to be a male. That was a nice plus there..." 10/9/16 Audible.com

The Wolf and the Highlander by Jessi Gage "...As far as the narration, it was very good.

The Lady Meets Her Match by Gina Conkle " ...Narrator and actor Marian Hussey was a pleasure to listen to. Her voice for men was believable.

The Lady Meets Her Match by Gina Conkle "...Marian Hussey, the narrator, did an awesome job of bringing the characters to life.

My Highland Lord by Tarah Scott "...As for the narration.LOVED IT! I am a huge fan of Marian Hussey. Her narrations are just fantastic, all the men sound like men and if it's the hero he sounds sexy. She gives everyone their own distinct voice, the men and women. She has a great reading voice and reads with emotion and inflections as called for. She does the accents very well too. I highly recommend Marian Hussey she makes a story even better..." 10/1/15 Audible.com

Wicked Wagers by Bronwen Evans "...The icing on the cake the performance by Marian Hussey, she is superb!" 12/31/16 Audible.com

Splendour by Brenda Joyce - "...Marian Hussey is a narrator I’ve been aware of for a while, but this is only the second of her narrations I’ve listened to. She’s certainly a very accomplished performer and I’m going to be seeking out more of her work, as I enjoyed her performance in Splendor very much indeed. She has an attractive, youthful-sounding speaking voice which lends itself well to the role of Carolyn, but there’s also an undercurrent of maturity and conviction in her performance which come through as the story progresses and Carolyn has to delve deep to find the courage she needs to face a number of difficult situations. Ms Hussey performs the male roles well by adopting different pitches and timbres, and the accent she uses for both Nicholas and his brother is appropriate and consistent. There are a number of secondary characters in the book who appear throughout, such as Carolyn’s father, Princess Maria-Elena and little Katya, all of whom are instantly recognisable, as well as numerous minor characters such as servants, nobles, soldiers etc. who are all swiftly and clearly depicted through the use of a wide variety of tone and accent..." Audiogals.com

Meet The Earl At Midnight by Gina Conkle - "She was very good at pulling me into the story. From the first words she uttered, I only heard her words and nothing else... Hussey’s vowels were well-rounded and clearly pronounced, making it possible to distinctly hear every word spoken. I never had a moment, even with lower class, male accents, where I had to rewind to hear what had been previously said.  Even in multi-voiced conversations, Hussey clearly defined and captured all of the characters..." Audiogals.com

Salt Bride by Lucinda Brant - "...Marian Hussey isn’t a narrator I’ve listened to before, but her performance here is excellent and I will certainly be seeking out more of her work as a result. Her voice is very pleasantly modulated and her narrative is well-paced and expressive. She differentiates very effectively between characters so that there is never any question as to who is speaking in those scenes – and there are quite a few – in which there are more than two or three characters present. Her interpretation of the various female characters is very strong, with her portrayal of Diana being the stand-out performance. That lady’s languidly supercilious utterances are laced with venom and bitterness as she cuts a swathe through London’s society as its most sought-after hostess. Ms Hussey doesn’t have a particularly deep voice, but her portrayals of the men in the story are successfully done by use of a variety of tone, pitch and timbre. For Tom, Jane’s younger half-brother, Ms Hussey adds a slight edge to her voice and introduces an element of eagerness into his words which expertly convey his youth and inexperience. Salt’s speech is considered and deliberate, with an air of authority and arrogance that perfectly reflect his austerity of character... Ms Brandt’s eye for detail and her ability to craft a fast-moving, suspenseful and highly entertaining story combined with a highly polished performance from Marian Hussey make this an audio I have no hesitation in recommending to fans of historical romance and romance audiobooks alike."
