Tell the story in a more understandable way so that it could be followed.
Narration was clear and entertaining.
At multiple points while listening to this book I thought someone had put chapters together in the wrong order. The book/plot was very convoluted and confusing. I continued to listen to all of it to try to understand what they had done wrong. At the end I was convinced it wasn't their problem, it was the author's. Interesting idea but very poorly constructed!
Although this volume doesn't exactly pick up where the previous one left off, the author does connect the dots in a most enjoyable and fulfilling way. The extra history and background provided here enhances the story greatly.
The narrator does a fantastic job portraying all the characters and making them distinguishable and real in their own right. An excellent narration that makes the book that much more enjoyable to listen to.
I look forward expectantly to the next volume!
Orson Scott Card does a masterful job of storytelling and blending our world and his magical world of Mithermages. The development of the characters is both full and enticing as we see the different worlds from each perspective. The plot moves at just the irght pace without leaving us gasping for breath (except in anticipation) or bogging down in some moralizing quagmire. The magic system is artfully crafted and consistent without being so complex we can't grasp it or so predictable we can see what will happen before it takes place. It is hard to turn off and I was reluctant for it to end and can't wait for the next volume! The dual narrators helps keep the different settings from being confusing and both bring the story to life in their own way. This is a definte must listen!!
This is a great action packed story of espionage with a mix of political intrigue on the side. Very well done and very well narrated. It is a good sequel to the original story and Court is a wonderfully intricate character. The only problem I had with this book was the ending. I understand leaving an opening for the next book but this was just felt a little bit like it was left unfinished in an effort to lead to the next episode.
