I recently listened to the first trilogy about Drizzt Do' Urden. I really enjoyed the books but by the third book I missed the setting of the Underdark and Drow society. So I was excited when I discovered this set of books. I was taken back into the Underdark and backstabbing Drow society, the narration is great and the storyline is satisfying and easy enough to follow. I am just finishing the second book now and I think I'll end up making it through the whole series.
I have had this book in my library for a while now and recently enjoyed Liam Owen's narration in the Hard Luck Hank Series. So, I finally got around to listening to this book. It is an awesome book with good character development and lots of cool alien species. It's kind of a young adult sci-fi because all of the main characters are 14 and under, but it is so much more in depth than your typical young adult series. Unfortunately, the next two books in the series are out in kindle format, but not audiobook. I put in a request with audible for the next two books, and I hope others have as well.
The narration is good with a few special effects for aliens and thoughts inside the main characters head. I would be happy with the same narrator if the next books make it to audible.
Even on it's own I would recommend this audiobook, but hope the others are coming!
Just wanted to add to the positive reviews. I expected a campy sci-fi story based on the cover art but I had way more fun than I expected. I am moving on to book 2 now, I definitely look for more from this author.
The narrator is perfect. Maybe it's because of the author's name, but I keep thinking of a Sci-fi Bruce Campbell from Evil Dead. A few special effect voices added in for some of the alien races adds to the enjoyment.
Highly Recommended for a fun escape!
It took me two listens to fully appreciate the perfect balance this book achieves between police procedural, understated british humor and supernatural characters. When it clicked for me I went full steam ahead with the next three books and am now patiently waiting for book number 5.
This is easily my favorite urban fantasy series next to the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.
The narrator is fantastic and gets slightly better in the following books.
Listen and Enjoy!
I feel like I appreciate it more for what an astounding writing accomplishment it is than I actually enjoyed listening to it. I gave this book my full concentration and while it had some of the most enjoyable writing I can remember, a lot of it went over my head.
I am not always a fan of Scott Brick's narration for some books, but I thought he was spot on for this book and writing style.
Overall, I enjoyed it, maybe more of a 3.5 stars than 4. I still look forward To Mr. Tregillis' next writing effort.
This book is incredible. I thought it would be interesting and thought provoking and it was, but sometimes that means boring and it wasn't that. There are great characters, a unique world and a murder to be solved that keeps your attention while the world building unfolds.
I've never read another Robert Bennett book but this one is definitely in the fantasy genre. Lots of Gods and monsters and miracles. It's kind of hard to describe without experiencing it and I definitely recommend that.
The narrator fits the story very well, she differentiates between the characters very well and definitely does not distract you from the story.
It seems to be a stand alone novel but I definitely would not mind hearing another story take place in this world or with these characters.
I thought this was a good book in the series, but with one more book to go it kind of left me just wanting to know how it is going to wrap up. If you've made it this far in the series I'm sure you will enjoy it. Pete Bradbury's narration is excellent as usual.
I really tried to get through this. I had 3 hours left and I just couldn't continue. It wasn't necessarily bad, just boring. There are no elements of fantasy in this book, which is fine but it just didn't build much interest for me in how it was going to end.
The narrator was fine.
I would normally give this book 4 stars, but I feel I should help compensate for all the poor ratings based on narration. I also preferred Jefferson Mays, but I thought Erik Davies reading style was a pretty smooth transition overall.
I enjoyed listening to this story all the way to the end and when it was over I was ready for more. To me that's the sign of a good story and audiobook.
I enjoyed all the new viewpoints in this story as well as the cast of supernatural characters. Luke Daniels is a great narrator in general but I think this series in particular suits him perfectly and showcases his talents.
I was introduced to David Dalglish with his Shadowdance series. They were really fun books, but I think this is his best book yet. I don't know if he is just becoming a better writer of if it is the help of his co-author, but this book just seems to have much more depth of characters and depth of the world they create. Bottom line, it is a great book.
There are a lot of new characters and families to be introduced to and the whole religion system to be explained, but it is done very well. I think this is the first book of a trilogy of books, if not more, so I'm glad they take the time to develop the world so thoroughly.
The narration is fantastic. Nick Podehl is one of my favorite narrators and he does not dissapoint here.
I think the next 2 books in the trilogy are both expected out this year, so I'm glad I don't have to wait long for more!
