Fine story, but why, oh why, did they change readers? I loved David Chandler's narration but his guy is very difficult to listen to. I now need to decide if I will listen to the next four books or just skip to book 12 which is a return to Chandler's narration. I love the books and characters but, oi vey... it was laborious listing to Mr Schirner read.
I loved learning about Henry's history and family.
Return to the services of David Chandler! It could have been better in almost every way, but Chandler is one of the best. Don't change horses mid-stream.
Good question... I'm not sure yet. I liked the story but it was painful to listen to.
Use David Chandler as a narrator. Have him go back and re-do the four books that Buck Schirner!

After reading the reviews by all the so-called literary masterminds, the reader Buck Schirner wasn't as bad as I thought. Like most series where you have the same reader over and over then suddenly the publisher, not necessarily the author, makes a change. We are always disappointed at first and complain "Why did they do this!" Over the years there have been complete disappointments in my opinion on reader changes, but in this case it wasn't really to bad. Buck's deep voice in some situations was a bit strong, but his other characters came through flawlessly. Everyone has their favorites, like mine are Scott Brick, which alot of people don't like, and Dick Hill which can't narrate a bad book. There are many others I like but these two are my favorite. Give Buck a chance since he reads the rest of the series and this series is very good. This particular novel gives alot of background on Henry Meloux and where his life has evolved from. I have to say there wasn't anything sinister in the story line but it was a very good read.
The previous ones were much better but this one is still very good
I have read other novels narrated by Buck and I consider him in my top 10 readers
never been able to sit and finish in one sitting
Interesting, historical, captivating
The plot keeps the listener on the edge. One thinks the answer is clear and then
Great performance by Buck Schirner. Am listening to another book read by him right now. He IS Cork O'Connor.
Didn't get to sleep till 3:30 A.M. one night because I began listening that evening at around 7:30 and finally turned the iPod off at 3:30A.M.
The story drags to nowhere and the narrator simply sounds too old for the character - I loved some of the author's other books but not this one.
