I started the series with book one (Rain Fall) because of audible's 4.95 'check out a new series' promotion and really enjoyed it. (I'm hooked on yet another series. :-) I am really enjoying this book as well. However, I was a little disappointed to realize the narrator is different. (I quite enjoy Dick Hill's work - discovered him in another series starter I picked up for 4.95 - The Black Echo.) The first narrator (Brian Nishii) heightened the atmosphere in a way that Dick Hill does not. Nishii read with a distinctly non-American pacing (a LOT slower than I as an American am used to or expect). His inflections and tone coupled with the fact that he speaks Japanese without an American accent came together to take that audiobook to the next level.
While I think Dick Hill does a wonderful job here, I don't have that 'transported feeling'. I really miss Brian Nishii.
