still tilting at windmills, after all of these years.
the first volume, at least, is highly derivative of Tolkien, the Thief series of video games and the Shannara series.
it's a fun read (or listen), but don't expect to have your intellect challenged.
the reader is excellent, the story is hackneyed.
I liked it. there were some odd pronunciations but overall good. takes a little while to get started.

this is a good book! but go for at least 30 minutes - it's starts a little slow - dialog is a little lame in the beginning but if you stick with it takes off and you won't be able to put it down!
Best ever!!++++++Story is great and ever so captivating! Tim is of course awesome as always. A must for each and every fantasy fan. You won't be dissappointed;)
I was drawn to this series by the free short stories which were great samples of the entire series.
The author specifically wrote the Revelations and Chronicles series so that they could be read independently and in either order without missing or spoiling too much. I have found that his method of reveal is so similar between the two series that I am actually enjoying reading them in alternating order. I read the first Revelation, then the first Chronicle, second revelation, and so on. Enough back story to get the inside jokes but not enough to short circuit any plot lines. You could probably start with either series.
The two main characters are a great "Odd Couple" - each teaching the other a different point of view and such. A lot of sarcasm. The characters develop over the course of the series and it has been interesting to watch that happen. There is a good amount of action with some death and destruction, but just enough to keep it from being too saccharine.
At first I was not a fan of the narrator, but as the story developed either he improved or I began to notice how he subtly played each character differently. By the end of the book I was a big fan.
Fun characters, lots of plot twists, and an excellent narrator combine to make an entertaining listen. This title actually includes 2 books, both of which were enjoyable and leave me wanting more.
Not amazed by the vocal arts of the reader, but could be worse. Not bad, just could be better. The story was definitely intriguing, but there were some gaps that were harder to jump than others.
I have recommended this book to many friends and family
I love the narrator, his voices MADE the characters come alive.
Once you listen to this one you will be hunting for more. The good news is the series is complete and every book is as good as this one!
