I have read and listened to the Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander., this series has been part of my life since the 1980s . I have been wanting to find something just as fantastic as it was normal I have found it with Michael J. Sullivan. I I listened to this book and when I was finished I started listening to it immediately again. I absolutely am in love with the depth of the characters and the suspense along with the gallantry and mystery this story entails. I commute to work and I listen to many audio books and I have to tell you that the narrator is absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend this series even though I have only listened to the first book , I have absolutely no doubt the entire series will be fantastic.
I thought the entire journey was amazing, the main cast just felt real and the banter between the two "rogue heroes" was very natural. If you enjoyed the Cycle of Arawn then you'll LOVE this.
This book is well written with a good mystery, good character development and certainly some laugh out loud moments. I could not stop listening to the story.
The fighting scenes are not drawn out and overdone. That is one thing about other similar books that make me fall asleep or fast forward.
Many moments of hilarity.
overall this was entertaining. But the plot was predictable and while the Ryria characters were well developed- the supporting cast was a bit flat. I struggled with caring about them and would skip ahead often when a chapter was dedicated to Arista. I will buy the next in the series as Royce and Haydrian have so many secrets yet to tell not to mention the narration was amazing!
Tim Gerard Reynolds brings this novel to life with his incredible narration. Each character has their own voice and style of speaking...and the story is fantastic. Sullivan writes with an incredibly devious mind that I thoroughly enjoy. This book is worth your time.
Story that captivates, twists and turns. Characters who are so real you look over your shoulder to see if they are there. Terrific performance. Will be repeating this listen event many times to enjoy over and over.
