I have listened to the first 2 books in the series mostly enjoying both of them. The narrators could have both been better, but the plot kept me listening to them. I liked the reader much better when he read the last book.
That leads me to believe it is merely the book that is bad. I have had it in my library for the last 2 months and have only been able to stand about half of it. Every time I start it up again I think "Oh yeah, now I remember why I turned this off!"
Halfway through the book it still appears to be going in no particular direction, it is slow, and they keep revisiting characters I have had no interest in learning more about from the first 2 books.
I had to write a review for this to spare others the regret. Even if you enjoyed the first two books like I did you will probably find this one a lost cause.
Actually, the reader for this book makes it nearly un-listenable to me. Her different voices are more annoying than creative and her overall tone is mostly monotone.
If you can get past the reader, the book also isn't very entertaining. It doesn't bring anything new to the genre, and I don't think I will buy other books in the series.
