This book was awesome I'm a massive Dresden fan and I was very scared that this book would be bad and make me hate JB but is was AMAZING!! I loved it and I'm so happy there are more books ahhhhh so good
I don't know if this is really my cup of tea. I think I like the Dresden Files and the Spire story a lot better than this series but maybe I will try one more to see if it grows on me.
Loved it- great story and performance. The editing of the actual audio was lacking. There were weird instrumental breaks and you could tell where they had spliced sections together because the timing would be off suddenly. Won't keep me from listening to the rest by any means but thought I'd put it out there!
After reading the Dresden files I fell in love with Jim Butchers's writings. But like many other books, it took me a while to get into this story, and the setting. I'm not one for stories written in the ages of knights and kings. However, as usual Jim makes this story come to life and had me cheering for the main characters and wanting to listen to what would happen next. I prefer a male voice, but found Kate Reading to be OK to listen to. She doesn't get too dreamy in her delivery which I am glad about, nor does her pace get slow and depressing like I found occurred with the narrator of Divergent. I'm now on book 5 and loving every instalment.
I can't imagine how. It sucks.
I am having trouble focusing on the story at all, the narrator is so distracting.
Kate Reading sounds like a bad renn faire actor at the end of the summer season with a hoarse voice. I just wanted her to relax, already! Have a lozenge, try talking in your natural range, and own your actual accent. Ugh. I don't have an issue with Brits, but I can't stand haughty used in place of actual skill. You know, like James Marsters has real skill. I wanted to like this story. I really like the other stories by Butcher. This narrator is like listening to nails on a chalkboard.
Ditch Kate Reading, and hire an actual voice actor.
I really liked the story and the performance was pretty good, but the production was terrible and the random trumpets were really distracting and annoying.
Kate's performance was pretty good but the editing and production was just bad.
I really enjoyed this listen, the story was so gripping in many parts. this spirit inclined fantasy story accents the real life that some tap into... Kate's voice and her ability and depths are also impressive. I recommend!
