The story is great but the heavy British accent takes a little getting use to, but not a negative. The drop in stars has to do with flaws in story I found but won't share to save the entertainment for others.
Anything terry brooks is a greatread
British easy clear
Definitely worth your time.
The narrator sounds like she should do professional lullabies. I couldn't listen for longer than 30 min at a time because she lacked the necessary animation and enthusiasm all great narrators exhibit.
No. It takes a ton of patience befor it even starts getting slightly interesting.
She lacks personality.
Nope. I've heard enough. It's too hackneyed of a story anyway. Give me characters that are unique.
Save your credits for something else.
Rosalyn Landor is absolutely spectacular as a narrator. The story is a good, well written piece of fantasy, not any new ground, but good all the same. This was an enjoyable listen and again, Rosalyn Landor was the star.
Odd comment, but...There seems to be a variety of readers for this series. It's interesting how the pronunciation changes of places and people. I suppose this narrator was selected since the story's main character is female. I drive 2 hours a day to work, so I am grateful for this series. Wards of Faerie failed to entice me at first, I didn't think I'd like this one, but it worked it's way through and wound up being a good choice. I do wish my favorite characters would stop being picked off in this book and his other. :)
I honestly don't remember the book that well. I just remembered felling slighly ripped off...like I paid a full credit for a third of a book...I know it was like 14 hours long it just felt really incomplete.
Lack of an ending...clearly part of a series didn't even feel like a full book
I don't know
This book is what made me turn to overdrive....the on-line library audiobook system through the public library. I can't see paying for this. I also found it for free there. IT is great in that it opened my eyes to the fact that I am spending $$$ every month for books I could be listening to for free! So I guess in this sense it was an awesome book because it will save me money!
Yes, gripping story with some nice twists to the plot. However, when the reader encounters words end in s there is horrible hissing noise. It seams to be how it was recorded which has increased sibilance errors in the audio.
Good tone however, the over recording of s sounds is a real distraction.
Pity about the recording problems. I've brought book two in the series hopefully it will be better.
Great story but seemed like just the first half of one book, looking forward to listening to the 2nd in the series.
