I have been a fan of David Morrell's books for years and was excited to see this one come to Audible. It is one of my original favorites. The downside is the narration, it is too fast and at times choppy and unclear. It can be hard to follow and I find that despite knowing the story, I occasionally get lost. It is still a good book and a good choice, you just have to get past the less than desirable narration.
I have enjoyed the Saga of Recluce series since I fist discovered them years ago. I was thrilled to see that they are finally coming available in audio format. These stories take a while to develop and the series gets better with each book as the overall plot develops. Kirby Heyborne is ok as a narrator but not the best I've heard. The Magic of Recluce is worth the chance as the series continues to build on previous books. Not the best of the series but enjoyable if you have the patience to let it develop.
It is about time the Honor books became available. I have read these multiple times and am glad they are finally available in audio. I agree with some of the sentiments regarding the narration, it could be significantly better but it is also far from the worst I have heard. I give it 4 stars because of the narration but I am also willing to overlook it because I am glad the books are available.
