I would say that this book lands firmly in the middle. I like these books but they get a bit long winded.
Merlin is the favorite of course.
I would if it were a new book and not part of another series.
I think there should be a new Rule for Narrators. Especially narrators that are new to a series that is already established.
Rule - You must first listen to the other audio books of this series so that you know how to pronounce the names of people and places correctly. Kevin Collins obviously did not because he pronounces character's names and the names of Cities so differently from the previous narrator that it is very distracting. Every time he says Charis ( correctly pronounced Karis with a hard k sound not the Ch as in charcoal ) it just makes me say it the right way which. Also that lends itself the pronunciation of Charissians and that sounds wrong too. There are many more examples but you get the drift.
Hopefully by the end of the book it won't bug me so much but it does for now.
I can't say that this ranks right up there at the top but somewhere in the middle. But its a good listen. A fast moving story with so many of my own thoughts expressed in word form. Especially in context of bending physics to your will when you're a Sci-Fi writer.
Believe it or not I liked Kerensky the best. The guy that is always getting beat up but never getting dead.
Let's just say that I wouldn't pick a book because he narrated it. I think he could use more inflection when speaking a female role. It was not as dynamic as I would have liked.
The book itself was a lot of first person communication with tons of "he said" and "she said". That gets old really fast.
