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...
This book is entirely about The Witch Assassin and her travels with the Fiend's head. I was thinking it would be another book about Tom and was initially disappointed by this, but it' is important back story from a different point of view. Overall though it's not as good as the other books so far, so I dropped a star from it's ranking.
Nothing like a good ghost story and the first three books have been Great! The narrator is fantastic and sas great charicter voices. I look forward to listening to the rest!
The female narrator's reading was just plain bad, but she had good character voices. I don't get that at all. Too bad the characters didnt have more lines. Also could the author have made the female protagonist any more of a victim.
This reminded me somewhat of the Iron Druid series, but with a female protagonist and a gargoyle instead of a dog. The only thing I didn't like about it was that she drinks and talks way to much tea...ha ha!
About whether or not to purchas the books in the series. The narrator is excellent! He's the same narrator that narrated The Godling Chronicles, which is a series worth a credit (see my review there).. If your looking for a series about poison, intrigue, and magic get The Farseer Trilogy. The narrator in that series starts out pretty bad, so listen at 1.25x and you'll get through them and love them.
This really is a Great Series and this is the best book so far. The last few chapters blew my mind. What a great magic system!!! Every book gets better and better. I highly recommend listening to this!
Stop here if you're a fan of Sanderson and Jorden. This auther is young and the book could use a better editor, but the author has the potential to be a great epic writer. I love the novel magic system and the way the second half of the story flowed. Michael Kramer brings life to the story and likely plays a part of why this story, along with the unique magic system, kept reminding me of Sanderson and Jordan.
Not what I was hoping for. To be fair, the book isn't that bad and the narration is really pretty good once I listened to it at 1.25x. It's just not a book for adults, or fans of noval magic systems.
Somehow I managed to get through the book, but only because I listened at 0.5x. I don't recommend this book for anyone, unless they RESLLY, REALLY LIKE Dragon Tales. It's the Narrator that really ruined the book for me, so giving the story 1 star msy be harsh. but because I managed to get through it it moght deserve another star or two.
This book has the chance to be the beginning of a great epic fantasy series. The magic system isn't really unfolded until the second half of the book and it's quite novel. The narration is excellant and that makes it an even better listen. Definitely worth a credit.
