I would have enjoyed seeing more strength coming from the main character in fighting the curse of "cowardice." I still have ugly thoughts of the scene involving a stagecoach & robbers. The authors worked so very hard at making the character look like a complete jerk in the very beginning & then such a feeble excuse of human flesh throughout the rest of the book I had a hard time getting the love story. When I read a love story in fantasy & truly enjoy it, it requires that I fall a little in love with the characters myself to make it real. In this case I just couldn't see how any woman (save those missing some marbles) could find anything remarkable or loveable in the main character. Yeah he was a good looking guy (throughout the book this is really obvious) but otherwise he was such a jellyfish!!
Make the character more human.. less like an insect.
Jonathan Davis did an excellent job narrating the story. I find no fault with his work.
I liked the idea behind the story which is what brought me to the book. I thought if written differently I could have really enjoyed it.
I listened to the first part 7 hrs & then 3/4's of the 2nd part before I gave up on the book. The last straw was when the heroin got put in prison & tortured & our gallant knight would do nothing to help her for fear bringing the torture down on himself. This is the initial impression.. I have no idea what he eventually did if anything because I couldn't stand to listen to it anymore.
