I would recommend that everyone read the first book and listen to the second book from audible. The narrator does not do this story justice. The producers made an excellent decision by not inviting him to read the second book.
Unless this narrator has learned to convey emotion, I will not endorse him narrating anymore books.
This story is excellent and its approach to magic and new and refreshing.
This audio book is definitely worth the price. The story and characters are unforgettable. Give this one a shot.
This book reminds me of the Shadow Dance series from David Daglish. The plots are very different but the characters leave a lasting impression. The characters are very memorable and the author doesn't spend most of every scene describing the environment. I appreciate setting in a book but describing the rocks and trees in every scene can get a bit redundant and annoying. Especially when the characters are extremely interesting.
This is the first book in the series so it warrants your attention if you are interested in the assassin style fantasy novels. The story is good enough that if you have an issue with the narrator you can at least buy the written novels.
The author has a gift for character development and telling an amazing story. However, a majority of the conflicts in the entire series stems from the main character "Faythe's" own immaturity/stupidity. It makes it very hard for me as an individual to truly fall in love with the main character. All that aside, the narration is great and the flow of the book leaves nothing to be desired.
