    High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches. Its task, programmed so many millennia ago, is to guard the human settlement on this planet, to protect this fragile remnant of Earth from all threats...to protect them, most of all, from themselves.

    Casey says: "Interesting Premise"
    "Better than I remember it"
    Overall

    I read this book (and indeed this entire series) about 7 years ago - its been a pleasure to revisit the world of harmony. The reader narrates the book very well, giving each of the characters both a fitting and distinguishable voice during dialogue. In narrative, the reader is clear and easy to understand allowing the listener to drift into the world.

    A lost race of elves, the taredhel or 'people of the stars', have found a way across the universe to reach Midkemia. On their current home world, these elves are hard pressed by a ravaging demon horde, and what was once a huge empire has been reduced to a handful of survivors. The cornerstone of taredhel lore is the tale of their lost origins in the world they call simply 'Home', a place lost in the mists of time. Now they are convinced that Midkemia is that place, and they are coming to reclaim it.

    Chris says: "Disappointing"
    "Good book, average narration."
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book itself, but the narrator's voices for the characters were inconsistent and unconvincing. At some points, it became difficult to tell who the narrator was trying to vocalize, the voices were often that similar and interchangeable. Also annoying was the narrators tendency to have the characters *sigh* constantly.

    In all, I'd recommend reading this book instead of listening to it - its a good story, but unfortunately the narrator isn't quite up to scratch this time. Four stars for the book, Two for the narration.
