I'm normally not a fan of this genre but I was blown away by this story. The characters were so diverse, rich and vivid and it was both suspenseful and heartbreaking. The narrator was brilliant - she really sensitively brought the characters to life in her lovely rich voice and she was very believable with her british accent. I'm from London so I'm a pretty tough judge of accents. What a fantastic listening experience!
Yes, I could really feel all the action this way.
Jed is really good. You want to dislike him but he's such a good guy deep down. I really liked romys narration her characters were very real. I enjoyed and am already listening to the next.
If you liked the Narnia books as a child you'll love this darker story that has the same style, feeling and fantasty elements. The writing is beautiful and sensitive and I was artfully transported to other worlds. The narrator captured the lyricism with her beautiful voice and artful, credible characters and emotion. I'd read this again and recommend it highly.
Alpha One was thoroughly enjoyable. It's a love story, thriller and mystery all in one. I loved the narration particularly - she is so emotionally in tune with the characters I felt like I was right there with them. I think this is a series and I can't wait to hear the next!
