Great performance, great voices, but what's with the random horns? As always from Butcher, the story is compelling and the worse a baddie is the more spectacular their demise.
I'm an avid reader and writer who is brand new to the audiobook scene, and so far... I love it.
I've highly enjoyed this story and its predecessor. The characters are believable and interesting! The story is exciting! It just hate the trumpets!
Throughout the story at seemingly random times they stop the actual story to play a series of horns. It's really jarring and always takes me right out if the book. The book itself is great though but those horns killed the audio book for me
If you liked Furies of Caulderon, you'll like this book. It expands the world and characters and leaves you wanting for more.
My complaint and the reason I'll return this book is with Penguin Audio. More than half of a critical battle (chapter 50) is missing. And what is the deal with the horns blasting at random?!?!
Anyway, listener beware. The story and performance are great. Kate Reading does a fantastic job breathing life into the characters. However, the editors at Penguin dropped the ball and left critical narration on the cutting room floor.
I read the first book and half read this book and half listen to the rest of it. So far I love this series. It is my first series I'm reading and it getting me to read more fantasy books.
Kate Reading is superb.. What a professional. Love the character development progression. Altogether very fun story.
