Definitely among my top five series. I began this series about a decade ago...I just never believed I'd get lucky enough to have it available in audio!
Loved the language/cultural differences between alien and human...the concept of having an assassins guild to solve personal/political disputes...and of course, the "wild ride" action of these characters from every area of this beautiful planet to the far reaches of space.
That would have to be the diminutive all powerful grandmother aiji Illisidi, racing her beloved mecheitti war horse monsters all about the mountains of molguri. Her character as portrayed by Daniel Thomas May was exactly as I remembered her from reading this series.
Oh yes! Listening to the first chapter and realizing that Daniel Thomas May was the perfect narrator to bring this great series to life!
Heavy praise for Daniel Thomas May in his ability to bring each of these characters to life. Foreign words/phrases were handled with expert fluidity, and i always knew which character was speaking. This series doesn't use "cliffhangers" to get you to read the next book...but if you love this first book as much as i did, you just won't be able to resist listening to the rest.
