There are some authors that are a cut above the rest: Joe Abercrombie, Brent Weeks, George RR Martin, Peter Brett, Pat Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, and Mark Lawrence. With these authors, you can be assured that a pre-order commitment won't turn out to be a waste. The Red Knight solidly places Miles Cameron in that "cut above" category.
Loved his performance. The lead character sounded like Sean Bean from the Lord of the Rings.
Pete Bradbury takes the story engagement to another level.
Arlen Bales of Tibbit's Brook of course!
At 1hr and 29min, the story isn't too hard to listen to in one sitting.
I really love how Brett has taken his short stories and published them in book and audio-book form. I think it is something that more authors should consider doing to tide readers over until the next full manuscript is finished. If you haven't listened to The Warded Man and The Desert Spear, grab 'em! They are grade A pieces of fantasy that rival the work of Scott Lynch, Brent Weeks, and Joe Abercrombie.
Engaging characters, compelling action, a little mystery, and hilarious English slang, a great combination making for a great listen.
Michael Page is amazing. I've listened to seven or eight books he's read and I've not been disappointed yet.
Really though, there were like more gay men than straight men... I just really don't enjoy listening to a dude talk about how nice an ass another guy has.
I have listened to the three previous books by Brent Weeks and was enthralled by them. They were amazing, so I was pretty excited about The Black Prism. Sadly, this book feels like someone else wrote it. Not only does the book disappoint, the reader is quite a let-down as well. The reader has the tendency to chop off sentence clauses that should be read as a whole and make them sound really choppy. His voice is so-so but after listening to Paul Boehmer do the Night Angel Series, this guy just sounds terrible. The book itself reads like a Brandon Sanderson before he figured out how to write. Way to much focus on the magic system and really shallow and boring characters. I really just don???t see how this could be a Brent Weeks book and I hope he doesn???t write more in this setting [crosses fingers].
