I thoroughly enjoyed this story, but I found the narration to be confusing.
The tale of the thieves, Hadrian and Royce, starts off simple enough but it quickly snow-balls when they become embroiled in a conspiracy to kill a king and anoint a new emperor.
I found this story entertaining, and was very quickly caught up in the lives of the characters.
Sullivan's voice runs through the narrative with a quirky sense of humor that had me laughing out loud, and a vivid imagination that had me so caught up in the story I was very disappointed when it ended.
The only negative thing I have to say is that the narrator sometimes confused me. He did a great job, but sometimes the dialogue was difficult to discern. He did voices for different characters, and sometimes they wandered and melted into one another so that it was difficult to distinguish who was speaking.
And it's "Ry-ri-a" not "Ri-year-a"
Once again I found this fun, interesting story set in an engaging world with interesting characters and conflicts to be undone by the narrator.
Brutal, Beautiful, Compelling
My favorite character is Jehane bet Ishak, a Kindath physician, because she is a very powerful female character.
Inconsistent, Clear, Emotive
Yes, absolutely! I wish I could have listened to The Lions of Al-Rassan in one sitting.
This story is magnificent, but the narration threw me out of the story often. Unfortunately, the narrator tried to speak dialogue in accents and he mixed up the voices and it was difficult to track who was speaking, or what accent that character had.
I will definitely buy the book to read.
