The story sounds a LOT like Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, or George R. R. Martin's series. So if you liked either of those then you'll like this.
It's LONG. Very very long, which is a good thing if you like long audiobooks as I do. I listened to all of part one (~7 hours I believe) without fast forwarding at all... by part 2 however, I ended up FF through some of the longwinded descriptions. (But I listened to Jordan's book 10 on audio and FF through parts of it as well.)
The narrator is pretty good - he tries hard to change voices and, for the most part, you can tell the characters apart from his tone. He mispronounces the odd word but otherwise, he's completely listenable.
I would buy this audiobook again... so if you like long detailed fantasy (very detailed), you should like this. If you prefer your stories short and to the point... perhaps this isn't the one.
