I greatly enjoyed Tim Curry's performance. This book had an unusual magic structure and excellent story telling and world building. I found the main character to be engaging, I only wish some of the other characters were more so. I look forward to reading more of this series and seeing learning more about this world, the author does not leave you with a cliffhanger but there are definitely some unanswered questions.
This book was my "Twilight" as an angsty preteen, although it's a poor comparison; I may be biased, but I think that Nix writes with more substance than any of the vampire romances. My own dog-eared copy sits proudly on my shelf, and it was a nice listen during the traffic and commute of"adulting". Love Tim Curry as narrator. Was thrilled to find there are more Old Kingdom books- I thought it stopped at "Abhorsen"!
I've listened to the Abhorsen trilogy 4 or 5 times and I'v yet to get tired of it. The originality of the story and the excellent narration make these my all time favorite. Tim Curry is a really great narrator for these books in particular.
Great performance. Great flow, great story line, enough mystery. Its worth it. I hope the next book continues the good vibes the first has created.
Nix creates a wonderful world of adventure to immerse yourself in! Curry is perfect to bring it to life!
