    Award-winning author, narrator, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman personally selected this book, and, using the tools of the Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), cast the narrators and produced this work for his audiobook label, Neil Gaiman Presents. In this exciting new "illuminated production", the author herself reads her own work, supported by a full cast.

    What did you like best about The Privilege of the Sword? What did you like least?

    The best thing about the story was how all the characters lives were weaved together.
    The least favorite things was use sparingly used guest narrators. It was billed that Felicia Day was narrating the voice of Lady Katherine -- but she wasn't the character's voice in all the chapters of the book. Same with the other guest narrators.
    It broke up the continuity of the book and was distracting to the content of the book.

    I hope next time when they bill someone as narrating a character, they narrate the character in every single chapter.

    On the far side of the world, deep in former Soviet Central Asia, lies a stronghold called the Crossroads. It is run with an iron fist by a brutal warlord calling himself Sala Jihan. He is far more than a petty dictator, for Jihan holds the fate of nations in his grasp. To save a world slipping into chaos, Jihan must either fall or be controlled.

    Jessica says: "WOW! This series is riveting!"

    It's a fun listen. Great action and it moves along. It makes me wish Crossroads existed for real. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    John works in his family's mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He wants to be a good person but fears he is a sociopath, and for years he has suppressed his dark side through a strict system of rules designed to mimic "normal" behavior. Then a demon begins stalking his small town and killing people one by one, and John is forced to give in to his darker nature in order to save them.

    M. Mott says: "Great, if visceral book, terrible narrator."
    "narrater mismatch to character"

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

    The story is told from a teenage boy's point of view and the narrator sounded like a middle age man. I hate when narrators are poorly matched to the character they are narrating. I found it hard to enjoy the story because it was so distracting. I didn't like the narrators cadence.

    I wish I wouldn't have spent my money on this book

    I didn't really think the story was that entertaining


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dan Wells? Why or why not?

    no, not if the same narrator is used


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Allen Nelson’s performances?

    perhaps if he was supposed to be narrating a middle age or older man's character


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

    no
