"A complex epic fantasy that crackles with vigor and magical derring-do." (Publishers Weekly)
"Buck Schirner is an adept reader, expert at rendering this vast, glittering tapestry of a world." (Library Journal)
the story was weirder than those before it. But i think it is fitting since our young protagonist is just getting into what it means to be this man of power. Games and magic and deception can even cause richard to act wrongly. I love his character and his live for the future attitude. I think he is really relatable and I like how he handles his mistakes. As for the performance: I found it somewhat difficult to track their voices. also a few simple words were mispronounced.
A most enjoyable installment in The Sword of Truth series. It does stand alone, for those who have not read it's predecessors, but (in my opinion) is much more satisfying when read as part of the series.
I loved Buck Schirner's performance except for one thing: his pronunciation of "prelate." Otherwise, the performance was richly executed by Buck's unique voice and character impressions!
I absolutely love the series! This narrator was better than the last for sure. Kind of worried about the rest of the books from the reviews of the other narrators.
this is one of my favorite books in this series. the Narrator did an awesome job. not overly fond 9f his Zed voice, and while he alternated pronunciation of Kelton, it was not distracting and I enjoyed the narrating nearly as much as the story.
Ok so the second book with Jim Bond was bad, and I read the review on this book and was worried.....but after listening I don't understand the hate for the narrator.... he says names correctly at least the ones I read complaints about I didn't hear him mix names up or say the same name differently.... I'm not sure if those were old reviews but I just didn't see the issue, he only says the name of the confessors city wrong but Jim Bond did also. I'd say if you made it through book two this guy is like gold!
the story wasn't bad it was a solid book in the series
Don't know if I got a different narrator than other reviewers, but I did not notice any of the problems mentioned. Maybe not quite as good as the first two, but no issues and I could get into the story just fine. I LOVE the Sword of Truth series! I've read the whole series about for times and now once through on audio books so I can listen to it while I work. So far very happy with audibles and my experience!
