Of all the audio books I've listened to I would put this book as a solid second place.
This book reminds me of a Shannara-esc world, but also a bit of The Hallows.
He has a very nice voice to listen to, though every now and hen character voices get mixed up.
Apocalypse, Magic, War, and Romance.
This is the sequel to Ice Forged and I loved it. I cannot wait until the next book comes out!
I really was drawn into the story. The details and layout of events made the story come to life for me!
Blaine, he was whose head I was inside, and he was a very like able character who I could relate to.
The scene that was my favorite was the first scene where Blaine describes the homestead and how they survived.
I was also very interested in the fire ribbon scene, it had me on the edge of my seat!
The very beginning of the book, where an elder sibling like myself made a very hard decision to save their younger siblings.
A wonderful listen I recommend it.
I loved the flow of the story. I was never bored listening to this story, and it often made me talk outloud to the characters. When Darius would as for ideas I found myself chiming in and hoping he picked my idea.
My favorite character was Darius, though the Queen and Amala were close seconds. I loved being inside Darius' head during this story. He was so down to earth and reasonable it only made sense to follow him.
I loved every moment of Mark's performance. His theatricality in his reading was both endearing, and riveting. He was extremely charming, and animated. I loved his voices and how they brought each of the characters to life for me. I really felt that his reading made the book more like a movie, I could so clearly see the images he described in my head. He was absolutely fantastic.
I had many extreme reactions to this book. I both laughed out loud and cried. Mark's heartfelt reading of tender moments and emotional exchanges had me fighting back tears on multiple occasions. I also found myself talking to the characters, especially Darius. I was so wrapped up in the book I would answer questions, remark about characters, or snarl when sepoy ethnic didn't go the way I wanted. It was so wonderful to get so lost in the story.
Kingslayer is the first audiobook I have had the pleasure of listening to. I had no idea that listening to a book in my car or in my room on headphones at night could be so wonderful! I fell absolutely in love with Mark Wilson's voice, theatricality, and his ability to bring the words to life. He used different voices for each character, making the book reading seem more like watching a movie. Mark's delivery of the story was, in a word, fantastic. I was riveted to the story for its entirety; it made me laugh out loud, cry, grip the steering wheel with excitement and nerves. Kingslayer was an enchanting story, well read, and excellently written. The main characters were like able, well rounded, and wonderfully brought to life by Mark Wilson. I found the story to flow smoothly, the battles to be exciting, and the romance to be heartwarming. I highly recommend this book, especially in audio form.
