I read this before listening - and am SO glad. I've like the series from Sheepfarmer's Daughter. That said, this is a HARD listen. Words like "taig", "Arrenis" and others are pronounced completely differently than in the previous six books, making it difficult to follow the story. I can understand bringing in a new narrator, but she should have at least listened to the previous books!
In addition, most of the time, this narrator seems to adopt a whiny, childlike voice. Perhaps it is my age, but it is very grating, especially for several hours at a time.
I eagerly look forward to the next book in the series, and will buy it - in print. If not narrated by the same person, will also purchase the audio book!
