    "Painful"

    I have loved all the Avalon books before this one, and this time it was not the story that killed me. Honestly the problem with this book? The reader.

    I have never stopped an audiobook right in the middle before now. This woman's voice is painful. She makes this painful monotone almost screechy sound when she is doign a character singing or chant. Her male voices made me want to drive a cheese grater into my ears to get it out.

    Read the book by all means, but don't waste your ears on this one.

    "Not Bad"

    Good story line, I love the historical references. The story almost moves to fast, skipping two or three years at a time. This might be partly the reader as she never pauses to segment a difference in time, but it does get a little confusing at times.

    "B O R I N G"

    I really looked forward to listening to this book, but after 3 long boring hours, I had to stop and delete. My mind wandered as it went on and on. And the narrator's voice was really irritating to me. Sorry I wasted a credit.

    No she is by far the worst narrator I have ever listened to.
