i like the narrator, but this book just wasn't quit up to my understanding that it would be a sword and magic fantasy...
I can't decide if i liked book 1 or 3 better. I'm downloading book 4 now and i'm ready to continue right away. Especially after the ending of book 3. I'm kind of surprised because i'm more into epic sword and sorcery books.
So, i'm still loving the series, but the first half (and know as a guy i'm not really into romance novels) is almost pure love story. There's no geatuitious sex and it's still "G" rated, but I knocked off a star for the lengthy romance part. Still, it is an entegrial part of the story. I was more interested in the action and adventure and the rest of the book holds true. I'm starting book 3 now. Oh, and btw the narration remains to be excellant!
I really enjoyed this book. It's about a young woman and her unexpected journey to India to help break a curse on a man who was changed into a tiger more than three hundred years ago. I was afraid that it might be a romance novel, and it is to an extent, but focuses more on their almost Indiana Jones like quest to break the curse. I enjoyed learning about India and would pause and google places and goddesses in India to better picture where in India they were and to learn about the Hindi god's and goddesses. I purchased the second book in the series right after finishing the first book. The narration was excellent! I will likely search for other books she has narrated because her narration is so pleasing to listen to and she does a great job at her creation and performance of other characters voices.
Horrible, horrible, horrible narrator! Yuou can hear him breath deeply in the middle of a sentence. I couldn't listen for more than 20 minutes...it's that bad
I liked this book. The author builds a stong hero with integrity and honor, and does well at mixing furture tech and a world of magic. I never thought I would like a book with a unicorn in it...
The narrator speaks so fast you can't folow the book. I listened for a time at 1/2X just to try to follow the story, but I can't get through a book that way. I can't really rate the book, it might actually be good. I just really didn't like the narrator...
Russian lit can be a bit different. I don't think this was translated well. There is a lot that goes on in the story, but it's a lot about nothing. The narrator has great voices for characters, but the main character's voice is dull and not read with any feeling. I managed to finish it, but overall was dissapointed.
I got this book because a few reviews said if you like John Ringo, you'll like this. Well, it was ok. I listened to the whole thing, but it wasn't very developed and the story is a little weak and out there. I doubt I'll listen to the others unless it's on sale. Save your credit.
I wish there were more like this series. It ranks highest of all! I also love Terry Goodkind, Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn and Way of KIngs), and the Eragon series. I've listened to this series 2 times this year and will probably again before the last one is released hopefully in Jan 2013.
I found this book a worthy listen, but at times hard to follow. It seems to jump around a bit. I selected the book because Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are some of my favorite narrators and it was worth a credit for the book
