Such a great series, such a great narrator!!!
Joshua Swanson has the ability to make the book & characters come to life. I'd definitely listen to more books narrated by him. I'm EXTREMELY disappointed the narrator changed after this book - the pronunciations & voices of the character change, not for the better! =(
These books are so well done! They have engaging characters interwoven into modern versions of ancient myths & morality tales. I recommend them highly. Kids/teens will identify with the characters, learning by accident. (Too bad they really, really messed up the movies.)
The author did a good job of wrapping up the many plot lines without making it seem contrived or rushed. The characters have to examine what is the honorable, right, fair, just, honest, & loyal thing to do as they complete their adventures with humor and derring-do. They form close friendships & learn about themselves.
Yes take out the homosexuality out of the book, it is not needed, then this would be a great book! I am disappointed in the author, he ruined a good series
