As many others have said, this book without Marsters narrating it is just not up to the rest of the series. I just finished reading the ebook, and it was great, so no problems on that end. (Yes, I read them then listen to them as well. Sue me.) While I normally like John Glover a lot, and was willing to take the risk to listen to this with his narration, I really wish I hadn't. Marsters set a standard narrating this series that probably can't be met with anyone else---like listening to the Aubrey/Maturin series with anyone but Patrick Tull as narrator.
I wish I had my credit back for this one. If the reason that Marsters didn't narrate this book was a scheduling conflict, then next time, it would be better for Penguin to wait to release the book when Marsters was available. I think they've traded total sales for a quick release. Bad move.
If you like Marsters narration, my advice: get the book or ebook, but skip this audio version.
