"Brilliant, with action and suspense all the way." (Best-selling author, Terry Brooks)
title says it all, there are long pauses between random words that damage an otherwise great book.
...from a story I've read, this book made up for it and more. This entire book is a prologue to the series and gives you all the insight into the characters that you could ever truly want. This book has secured me as a fan until the series' fruition.
One of the finest original worlds I've come across in many years. Excellent writing and narration. I will definitely finish all the series.
The story started off kind of slowly but then I got excited and just kept thinking "what a great story". I loved the characters, the narrator brings it to life and the story is compelling. I couldn't stop listening and couldn't wait to read the next book in the series.
Took a bit to get going, but I find that most of the best stories do. Characters are developed well, although they do seem to be more idealistic than realistic at times, but have enough depth to invoke feeling. Anxious to move on to the 2nd book in the series!
great story, wonderful talent in narration. The only bone I had to pick was the pauses in between sections. Some of them were so long I had to check if the recording was still playing! Regardless, thumbs up on the whole experience
Yes! and I am.
Great reader. Clear, Concise and catches the emotion.
Not original, but original.
all things awesome
Yes, this book has demons, but don't think for a second that it's a horror novel. These demons might as well be aliens from another planet - evil, carnivorous aliens at that - but not the soul possessing demons you've come to know in other stories.
That said, this is still an excellent novel. The author does a wonderful job at introducing the main characters and spends more than half the book developing them; their back stories, the homes they grew up in and relationships there, all the way up to their chosen career paths,
This may all sound boring, but the pacing was just right and you could sense that these individual journeys would lead to something bigger. And they do.
The narration was fantastic. No over the top voice characterizations, just solid storytelling. Breaks in chapters were handled with a brief pause. I loved this.
The only reason I held back a star is because the last act seemed to come on too fast, almost like someone edited out 2 or 3 chapters leading up to a significant point in the story. Still, totally worth a credit!
