    Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.

    What would have made Lord of the Wolfyn better?

    Narrator


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything by narrated by Jim Frangione, Tom Stechschulte, Hillary Huber, just a few example


    What didn’t you like about Violet Grey’s performance?

    Nothing. She did not make anything about the story memorably. I was thinking about grocery shopping during the first sexual encounter in the book. I had to rewind.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I kept listening because the first 2 book were very good and I wanted to know what happened with the family.

    The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and walked into self-imposed exile. Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.

    What disappointed you about Dream Warrior?

    The Narrator, William Dufris


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dream Warrior?

    When I stop listening to the audiobook and bought the ebook


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His portrayal of the characters was VERY, VERY POOR. He made the characters sound like old and decrepit people.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, the Author, and the fact that I could read instead of 'listening' ot the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible should issue a refund to anyone purchase the audiobook and demand a refund from William Dufris. Do not hire William Durfis to read any more books.

    All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member - a man trapped in a hell of his own.

    The narrator is so slow and pause so long. He completely ruin the book. He yelling for him to get on with it. Good grief...I notice the also used him for the other books...I cannot listen to this guy...Max Bellmore again.

    What has she done? With a new identity, a staged death, and a chance to flee the treachery that stalks her, Rachael has escaped from a faceless assassin. Now, thousands of miles from home, under the lush canopy of the rain forest, she's found sanctuary.

    A User says: "Liked the book, Hated the narration!"
    "Narrator ruined the book"
    Overall

    It was so difficult to listen to this narrator. Didn't they have a producer to review Renee's work. She is horrible. Good grief, she made the leading man sound mad and angry all the time. I would avoid any audiobooks with the narrator.
