    "just wonderful"

    excellent beginning to this series. starts a little slowly...but well worth investing the 18 hours.

    the narration is awesome. an excellent alternative to the "fantasy novels are narrated by English guys" cliche. only critique is the oddly long pauses between some sentences...but, overall, highly enjoyable.

    "Great narration, poor last third of the story"

    I enjoyed the start of the book. The concept was interesting, and with the great narration you could feel the fear of the demons every sunset. The last third of the book was lame, predictable cliches of every fantasy trope you can think of, with it becoming difficult to suspend disbelief.

    I would give the book two stars, but the narrator was so good that the audio book deserves three.

    "Slow start but worth it"

    Great book but definitely a slow start to get interesting. I almost stopped listening to the book several times but decided to see it through. I'm glad I did. Now I can't wait to start the next in the series.

    "ends too fast"

    the end came too quickly for my taste. I hope that there will be more so I can be lost in this world again.

    "Unreal how amazing this was"

    I am shocked... Being a huge fan of fantasy fiction I have been struggling lately to find something good and happened upon this by chance. This book is unreal! Epic story and turn of events I can't wait until the next one!

    "Good Story.."
    Where does The Warded Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The warded man ranks in the middle of the many books I have listened to I enjoyed the characters and the magic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Warded Man?

    The most memorable moment was the warded man's first fight with the demons after he met Lisha.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could have been better is there were not so many pauses. There seemed to be a pause after every sentence and it was irritating from start to finish.


    If you could rename The Warded Man, what would you call it?

    If I could rename this book, it would be Hold till Dawn"


    Any additional comments?

    This was a good book, but would have been better with another narrator.

    "I really enjoyed this book."

    I think the story and the narrator are great but there are spaces between chapters so long I think the app stopped.

    Story
    "A bit mumbled"

    The story is fantastic but the narrator has a very low voice and his words sometimes become hard to catch. I had to listen to this book at higher volumes than normal to catch what was being said. Still, the performance wasn't bad, just quiet. There were unusually long pauses between sections that had me checking my app to make sure it was still running.
    Take this as a review of the narrator. The story itself was very exciting and action-packed.
