I enjoyed the story from the first book. was not thrilled that the reader of the book changed. it took me out of the story for the first few chapters.
All audiobook work for me... So average
The historical characters coming to life.
The spider god Areop-Enap. Made me laugh out loud so hard I choked while swimming.
I love how easily you get sucked into the whole book series.
My favorite character is josh because how much he thinks he knows about magic and how he finds out that everything he thought he knew was not even close to what it really is.
my favorite scene is when josh is running after the niddhog.

so far this series has been wonderful. The stories are billed as for the teenage reader, yet even as an adult I think they are fantastic. the way the characters, real people, and characters of myth/ legend are used in the story telling is exciting. Great performance that helps the listener complete his mental imagery.
Good fun story that kept the whole family engaged and was sufficiently enjoyable enough to ensure our purchase of the next book in the series.
Narration was generally good but some very questionable accents and a few absolutely horrible voice choices (Mars the God of War had a high, petulant, reedy, whiny voice that was so terrible it made me want to scream) detracted somewhat from the experience. But over all, it is still well done.
Very well read, very easy to know which character is being voiced.
Use of history and legends meld well into a story of modern adventure. Adding human emotions and desires to the motivations of the legendary characters makes them seem more real/plausible.
The next book can not down load fast enough.
