"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)
but the story is worth it. his annunciation as well as pronunciation of some words coupled with poor inflection really ruin the experience. Some characters sound like villains from old Disney channel cartoons (no really like that one generic bad guy voice from the shows) and it's quite amusing. don't let the narrators voice destroy the book though, it's worth it.
Overall, this book was absolutely beautifully told and I would highly and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a story of a High Fantasy universe. Heroes and antiheroes, villains, monsters, Wizards, and a love across time. The only thing I can possibly knock on this is with the performance. And the only bad thing about it is the way the performer voices one of the monsters. I understand where he was going with it but it hurt my ears every time he did it. Other than that, I absolutely loved it.
I love this book. The performance was splendid! Character voices were consistent and entertaining. I have read the book before many years ago and I could not have been happier to hear it read to me. Great job!
The books themselves are awesome. However the narration could use some work. I guess maybe I can stand it cuz I've already read it. For those who can't stand the narration read the books cuz they are my favorites and the only books I've read twice.
I honestly believe that everyone should read these books because it's what's happening right now. To me they are an inspiration to get up and do something about the world we live in or end up in a war to be slaves.
