loved the story and the characters. but the narator could do with practicing reading emotionally. during scenes of anguish and stress the performance was a little flat. and every time the characters said "noooooooo!" because someone was killed or something, it just sounded weird. Noone would speak like that ever. other than that, a great mid way to a good story.
I am glad they wrap up a number of important details in each novel. Absolute cliffhanger with enough tied up that I feel good with the ending. Definitely need to carry on though. Mr. Sullivan is a brilliant author and his characters are memorable.
The stories were less enthralling than the first two books, but still very enjoyable.
Narration, as usual, was excellent. However, his distressed female voice could use some work.

GOOD but NOT Great... Series started well, 1st rate, but has gradually declined. I get the feeling that writer was in a hurry and story slipped from Adult to Young Adult. I had high hopes for the series and pray it recovers.
I believe that the story just keeps getting better. Rags to riches, Royalty to wash maids, heroes to villains, plenty of intriguing plots. Experience this saga yourself.
Ultimately, the plot twists are predictable and many of the "high tension" scenes aren't that dramatic. Then there are in-between scenes that move far too slowly, and there are so many 'Eagles of LoTR' that make the story reminiscent of early 80s adventure movies.
...and then, in this no-way-out situation, or heros are saved by...
Other than THESE elements, the characters are great, the dialogues are interesting, and I dig all the moving parts! I would like to have learned more about the goblins (ba ran gazal) because they seem pretty bad ass, but the author had to narrow the scope somewhere, and he sends to have chosen the geopolitical elements over the hero's quest archetype and I can get behind that.
