We haven't read the print version but I can say that the narrator has excellent voices for the characters that are so distinctive that it seems like multiple narrators. I usually read allowed to my children but Steinbruner does such a masterful job-- it's way better than what I could have done with it. We love listening to these books and are just about finished with this one and will immediately start the third one.
We love the main character, Conware, and his relationships with Nevery and Rowan. They have depth and real substance. You feel what the main character feels and root for him.
His voices! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful variation and inflection. How he manages to switch into Kern's Scottish accent and back to others is amazing.
We listen a chapter or two every evening as my kids are settling into bed. Wonderful nighttime story. Each chapter always leaves us wanting to hear more.
