I'd read the book back in the 60's or 70's. Since then I've forgotten the details so this was a new book once again. I enjoyed it over 3-4 days and looked forward to resuming the book where I left off. If you enjoy these types of books (Lone Assassin vs the "System," ) then you'll not have any complaints. And the reader was excellent. He could pronounce all the foreign words that gave me such trouble while reading. A nice English accent.
The narrator and Audible Frontiers! In at least three previous "Lost Fleet" and "Beyond the Frontier" audiobooks CEO Gwen Iceni was pronounced the same. Along comes the "Tarnished Knight" series and suddenly Iceni is pronounced "I-cen-I." Made me so angry that I missed the next few minutes of dialog every time Vietor said "I-cen-I." The producers couldn't maintain a consistancy in the way names are pronounced. Now I don't want to continue the book. The producers also allowed Marc Vietor to be much to "aggressive" in his reading. That's my take, anyway. I wanted to like this book but I'll skip the audio now and get it on my Kindle.
Christian Rummel was so good that it will be hard to replace him.
I listened to the first four parts of this book.. It was tough to keep going.. then I got to the last 8 to 10 hours and thought it would take off.. It did.. Slowly, the action started.. But I got to the last 20 minutes and wondered how he would wrap this up so quickly.. He never did though.. There was no proper ending for me.. No happy ending.. No sad ending.. It just ended!
If you listen to this novel, the last spoken words of the novel summed up MY feelings exactly! .
