Mr. Hearne in this fourth book in the series, got it right with a perfect mix of humor, great story telling and a narrator that makes the characters come alive. Kudos to Luke Daniels for his great performance and pronunciation of a difficult language. It is best to read the books in order due to so many characters come and go throughout the novels. For those of you who find Oberon a hoot you will be please to hear he plays a major role throughout the whole book.
This book was well worth the credit to buy it. Enjoy
The storyline was interesting but proceeded slowly. This may be because it was the first book in the series and the Author was setting the storyline and introducing all the future characters. But it got tedious when the main characters had to discuss their feelings, thoughts and actions to the point of stalling the story. When they droned on and on the main female character started to sound childish and the male pompous. The narrator did a fine job on the voices for the secondary characters but the voice for Jacob was like gravel and Bella was high pitch and whinny. Several times I almost gave up, but the secondary characters sound more interesting and give me hope that the other books won't be so plodding.
You get familiar with characters though out the series, and start to look forward to their book.
As I said If it's not broke don't fix it. Changing the narrator detracted from the flow of the series. The same characters with different voices ruins the experience.
A quick easy listen. Reminded me of the show Bonanza where the father always had the perfect sage advice at the right time in the right place etc.. Predictable plot nothing complex
Good vacation listening.
The first quarter of the book was heavy on the Celtic mythology it made the flow of the story bog down.
I have the whole series that Audible has available,and I am waiting for the next book to be added to Audible library
The war scene when Atticus helped his friends get justice but they died after accomplishing their goal.
yes as long as the first part of th book was left out
