    Welcome to Gramayre - where witches, warlocks, elves, and gnomes are real; where a spoiled girl-queen and an army of teenage witches, and ragtag beggars battle an overwhelming force of rebel knights and time-travelling anarchists for the future of the most unique, and perhaps most important, planet in the galaxy.

    What did you like best about The Warlock in Spite of Himself? What did you like least?

    The production of this audiobook was awful. The narrator was so much louder than some of the character voices that I had to adjust the volume. In some places the sound effects were so loud that I couldn't understand the dialog and some of the voices were so over done that, once again they were not understandable. A straight reading of the story would have been an improvement.

    I did enjoy the story. It was not great literature but it was entertaining, the parts I could hear.

    A thousand years ago, the armies of the Arcosian Empire, led by Mornhavon the Black, crossed the great sea and tried to conquer the land of Sacoridia - and during Karigan G’ladheon’s early years as a Green Rider, Mornhavon’s spirit, sensing weakness in his prison walls and seeking vengeance, began to wake.

    Jennifer says: "3rd book and still an interesting story"
    "Not as good as the previous two."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Since I listen to this primarily in the car or when I'm weaving, I don't feel that the time was wasted but there seemed to be much more set up and description. A little too much. I thought the "Grandmother" character was a little over done and the problem with the wall and conversations with the Guardians could have been shortened for more flow to the story. These plot points seemed to be used as padding.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kristen Britain? Why or why not?

    I have already started listening to the next book, but if it is as slow as the third book, I don't know if I'll buy another.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was good with real differences between the characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.
