Audio Addict Capt Kirk
Its not the Wheel of Time but it was good enough to give me hope for the next book.
I struggled with the lack of description and exposition to give any real explanation of what was happening and why it was happening. Perhaps due to the fact that with a first person narrator, the things the main character was intimately familiar with would not spare for much thought.
Though, at times it was clear that the main character seemed to be speaking directly to the audience and therefore some further explanation of what was happening might have been relevant.
The story itself was gripping enough despite those things, and I will certainly be reading the second one.
Some of the colloquial dialog for the period feels natural. I am happy to go over this old friend prior to the new movie about to go into production.
A first person book in which a prince describes attempting to get back in power. The reader is given very little information about who the prince is, or how his magic works. There needs to be some rules governing how the magic works, as well as world building and at least one likable or interesting character before I could consider this a good book. There is not any character of interest and I will not listen to any more books in this series.
This is a series that I could listen to, on repeat for the rest of my life. Non-stop. A must read/listen to series that will change the way you view the world.
