The magic and world is interesting, but the romance parts where ehh and narration less than stellar. When the narrator did effeminate voices for the female characters is was a little creepy. Our main character uses the word "like" to excess in describing things. Descriptions get fairly annoying in the middle as he spends to much time talking like a poet to or about a girl, unfortunately he isn't very good at this. The magic and exceptionalism of our main character makes it an interesting world to explore.
If it's post apocalypse I'm in.
The narrator really sets this apart from every fantasy audiobook I have ever heard. The story will keep you captivated until the very end.
I've already read and loved this book but the narrator added so much more for me with all of his colorful accents. He was phenomenal and to me, gave new life and dimension to all of the characters.
"In Reason I Trust"
I purchased this audiobook due in part to the really good reviews, but must admit I may have expected too much. This may be in part due to the tendency of the book to be largely one of building up the base of the story. There wasn't enough going on to keep me excited for the next part. I was also not a huge fan of the narrator, and felt that at times he weakened the believability of the writing. The ending did not leave me scrambling for the next in line.
This book together with the 2nd are two of my favorite books I've listened to. I don't write many reviews but I was compelled to in this case. If you like the genre then this is a masterpiece. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE 3rd BOOK TO BE RELEASED!!!
I will absolutely be listening to this book again. The voice of the reader threw me of at first, but as I continued listening it became quickly apparent that he was a very good choice of reader..
It took me about an hour to get into the book, but after that wow... I was hooked. The story has a well thought out plot, and the narration is exceptional. You will not be disappointed with this book. 6 more days until my next credit... Don't know if I can wait till then to start the next book in the series. This book was that good!
