This is my first review on Audible. This book demanded it of me.
It was a pleasure to listen to. The language it used was full bodied, lightly poking at one's vocabulary without being pretentious. The narration was lightly accented, clear and concise with a pleasant timbre and rhythm.
The story line was well balanced, neither too cotton-candied optimistic nor too cold and dark. The use of magic was just about right. Just enough to be mysterious without being so overused as to seem gimmicky. Character development was first rate. This was a long book and yet it didn't get tiresome.
I shall impatiently await book 2.
I had to sit through this book twice before I came to really enjoy it. The idea of the main character takes a bit of getting used to.
I do recommend this book and I hope the author considers it for a series. Hmmm.
