Such a wonderful gem! All 3 books are worth your listening credits, and this, the first book, doesn't disappoint. If you are tired of listening to "my pretty pony/puppy/fairy" with your kids, then this is the book for all of you! D.M. Cornish has created an entirely believable world, populated with utterly believable characters.
Best: The world is interesting and some of the story, while predictable, was very fun.
Worst: There are so many made up words that there is a definition in every chapter heading.
He failed the XKCD test
I'll be looking for the reader, Humphrey Bower. He was delightful.
