    Midwich is a quiet English village until, one night, a curious occurrence results in the village being cut-off from the outside world for a day. When all the women of child-bearing age become pregnant, it is clear that something strange is happening. This novel was the basis for the classic science-fiction film, Village of the Damned.

    Spy, rogue, thief, and noble, Seregil of Rhiminee is many things, none of them predictable. And when he offers to take on Alec as his apprentice, things may never be the same for either of them. Soon Alec is traveling roads he never knew existed, toward a war he never suspected was brewing. Before long he and Seregil are embroiled in a sinister plot that runs deeper than either can imagine and that may cost them far more than their lives if they fail. But fortune is as unpredictable as Alec's new mentor.

    David says: "A really good story. (What homosexuality?)"
    "Let down by narration"
    Overall

    Enjoyable story with memorable characters in an interesting setting - I didn't find the 'world-building' a problem at all. I have to echo other comments about the poor narration, however. Mispronunciations, awkward phrasing and unrecognisable accents detracted from the pleasure of this audiobook. I'll listen to the sequel for the strength of the story, but would avoid anything else with this narrator.
