I was looking forward to hearing this story, but could not listen to the whiny narrator's voice for very long, and soon abandoned the entire audio book.
Again, the story moves swiftly through many channels without losing the listener. Narration is artful.
Believeable characters, great story, and excellent narration. This is the first of three books, and the story arc is long and complicated enough to merit that length.
This book does not disappoint, althought (SPOILER ALERT) the end seemed a bit rushed and hurried, compared to the pace of the three volumes that led up to it. Not the ending I expected, though, which was a pleasant surprise.
Fans of the Mistborn series will recognize the fantasy elements of this book. The action is good, the narration is great, but it somehow doesn't quite meet the level of Sanderson's other books. Plus, it seems to be part of a new series....
Sanderson has created a believeable world with credible fantasy elements. The plot takes wonderful twists and turns, and the book is hard to "put down." Narration is outstanding.
This book continues the series, and left me wanting the next book NOW! It's wonderful and complex, with many unexpected plot twists. The narration, as always, is outstanding from these two narrators.
I loved the interplay of the Wild West (and its familiar characters) with a whole new fantasy overlay. I wonder, though, when the sequel will come out? It leaves the reader with a lot of loose ends.
The characters are fully developed, and the story is nicely wrapped up in this tale. Fans of Brandon Sanderson will find familiar themes, but all new settings. Very enjoyable.
This book kept me occupied, and I listened to the end, but it did not grab me.
The narration was fine, but I did not care for the form of the narration or the substance of the book. As much of the book takes place in emails, the narrator is forced to read the ENTIRE email address of the sender and recipient, along with the subject line, date and time. This alone was just about enough to make me stop listening, as it became really tedious to hear. The substance of the book was not new, or clever, or especially sad, moving, or even pathetic - just wasn't much of anything. The subtitle of this book could be: "the musings of a vaguely unsatisfied woman".
