Listening is not the same as reading, but it is still fun
Where are the Gbaba? Nothing to look forward to here, So wish I could return all these books.
Narrator was ok but not as good as the one who did the one who read the first two books. You see this in the secondary voices. Story a little less exciting as well. Not as much action.
I really really hate it when they switch narrators part way through a series. It breaks the immersion for me and makes it hard to get into the story while you are trying to adjust to the completely different flow of dialogue. :(
This is a solid continuation of the story.
It is slow moving, but that was to be expected based off the previous books in the series. Slow stories are a trade-off; in exchange for the time spent, a good writer will leave you immersed in the world described- and give you an attachment to the characters not easily paralleled in more fast paced novels.
Mr Weber achieves all that and more; leaving you surprisingly invested in the story and characters.
If you have the time to invest, I do not think you will be disappointed.
On to narration.
Jason Culp is disappointing as the storyteller. Taken singly, his performance in this book isn't terrible, but it is clear he did no preparation. Changing narrators mid-series is nearly always a bad idea, but his absolute refusal to pay attention to the accents ascribed to the characters by the previous narrator turned a bad situation far worse; leaving me often mistaking characters for each other.
Author tends to go into minute details and will often repeat the same details.
Narrator changed accents from previous books. In one instance he changed the gender of a character from how it was narrated in the previous two.
