Not one of Jennifer Crusie's best. Rather formulaic. She can write much better. I'm glad I've read some of her other books, otherwise, I wouldn't bother reading her other books.
I've already recommended the books to friends. It's a very good story and very well told. Lots of adventure, sword fighting, magic, tragedy, romance, a page turner.
I've never read/listened to anything like this series.
The entire "Heir of Novron" was amazing in my opinion and there were many, many scenes which delighted me, made me cry, had me on the edge of my seat, couldn't wait to find out what happened next.
I had tears in my eyes many times as well as laughing out loud.
I think Michael J. Sullivan finished the series beautifully. He wrapped up everything and I was not disappointed in the ending. I will be reading/listening to more of his books and Tim Gerard Reynolds, the narrator as well.
I enjoyed the entire series, and want to listen to all the books again. There is a lot of complexity in the stories and one can't comprehend everything in one listening. Plus, good books are always worth reading more than once.
I've never read a series like this one.
I enjoy the scenes when Hadrian and Royce are joking about what other careers they could do instead of being professional thieves and when Royce is trying to disway Hadrian from being so trusting.
Yes, which is impossible since it is many, many hours long. However, I did listen for many hours at a time which I usually don't do.
Tim Gerard Reynolds, the narrator, did a masterful job reading the books. He had so many voices for each character, I always knew who was speaking. He did an amazing job with Arista's voice, a woman, he conveyed her as strong and not whining. And the voices of Royce and Hadrian I think are spot on. I can't think of them sounding like anyone else.
Pete Bradbury's voice is too gravelly. I found it very unpleasant to listen to. I didn't listen to the sample but this taught me to listen to the sample audio before I buy another audio book.
The heroine was irritating. In the beginning of the book all she did was whine.
I didn't like her voice and I thought she read the story too slowly.
I was disappointed in the story and didn't like Mel. Too whiney, too wimpy, too middle class. She buys and wears designer jeans and shoes. She drives a BMW. She yells
Didn't finish book
Great adventure story.
When Jacky was riding the Shiek.
Ms. Kellgren has a great voice, speaking as well as singing. She does a great cockney accent and when she sings the songs that Jacky performs, the audio book adds so much to the experience of listening to the book.
I laughed a lot while listening to this book on my iPod. I walked around grinning like the village idiot.
This is a great series. Jacky Faber is an amazing heroine and the only way to experience the books are by listening on audio.
I didn't like any of the characters in this book. I enjoy quirky people, but these folks were mostly downright unhappy and dysfuntional because of who they were. I read and heard favorable reviews so I had high expectations which sadly were not met.
The woman's voice drove me crazy. Toooooo Southern. The story isn't bad, but I found the voice irritating to the point where I could not enjoy the story.
I was disappointed with this book. I was expecting something else I think. Perhaps getting more into the mind of the young Sherlock to explain why he thought the way he did and detailing his thought processes as he solved his first mystery.
