    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story has to many details that don't add to the story. Half of this story could have been edited out.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jay Lake again?

    No. I was planning on listening to the sequel whoever this is so disappointing.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Katherine Kellgren?

    Perhaps a full cast production.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am disappointed I was looking for an fantasy audiobook. There is a lot of decription of the different cities but somehow It never pulled me in.
