ok, So...I loved this book and I loved the series. I think tho that the real question is this: will Audible EVER give us the last book in an unabridged form or will this be another like OUTLANDER series where there's just some cheap abridged version of the next in the series? I'm getting a bit frustrated. I love epics but I love the endings too. So far i've got 4 unfinished epics in my library. 3 of them because Audible doesn't have the last books.Codex, Ice and Fire (boo George R.R. Martin you promised us September!), OUTLANDER (i won't consider it done til you give us unabridged; so far the abridged has really bad and unsatisfied reviews.) So, YES (!), I love the Codex Alera Series. Great narration, great characters (some I love to hate), great series. BUT PLEASE, can we have the last book in unabridged and SOON!
Nice story continues - careless/sloppy editing. Many chapters missing last few words - or next chapter missing a few words. In cliff-hanger transitions, this is an important gap - and simple carelessness by the editor(s). Read the book instead
The Book was great but there are parts of it missing, and the trumpets are distracting.
I enjoyed the audiobook overall, but the random horns that blare in your ear for no particular reason were annoying.
The book was fantastic, my only issue which dropped the overall rating was the poor quality of the recording. It sounded like a very poorly done rip of a cd with scratches, there were random blips, jumps, and noises.
The story was engaging and fun, however the story sounds like it was edited by a drunkard. There are several sections outright missing text that is important to the storyline. Kate Reading is great S always but boy oh boy....this one is rough.
Like the previous books in this series, this too was well written, and a good story. perhaps it's that I've been reading therm back to back but I found my attention, my patience waining during this book. Hopefully after a short break, the final book will recapture my imagination.
You would think they would get over this childish need to announce important scenes with horns after the first book or two. Admittedly, they seem to be used less and less as the series goes on but when they are used it grates on the nerves as fingers on chalkboard. Good continuation of the story, suffers the infallibility of the protagonist problems of so many of these books . Worth the credits!
