    "Narrator is very bad."

    Loved this book and have approved of all the books in the series. I do not like the narrator at all. She does not change how she describes mundane issues with how she describes fights and battles. It is very hard to get excited about the book the first time through. Definitely would not use this narrator again. Will not seek out books read by her.

    "Lots of Adventure"

    Paks sets out on an adventure and there is plenty in this book. This is completely different than the first book. My only complaint is the narrators choice for the elves. This is silly on my part, but they sound like the aliens in the "Galaxy Quest" movie and it grates on my nerves.

    "Could not stop listening wonderful!!!"
    What did you love best about Divided Allegiance?

    Wonderful story Paksenarrion courage and natural ability to just understand what needs to be done in the face of danger. I would love just a tiny pinch of that.


    What other book might you compare Divided Allegiance to and why?

    The First Law series by Joe Abercrombie they seem to have the same personalities the only difference is that our hero had a family and he is haunted by them but then he starts a new life with a lot of adventure. I would to read the las book though...........AUDIO WHERE IS IT!!!!


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not listened to any other of her book but I will make sure to look for it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No I would not make a film they are always messed up and I can not beleave that any book writer would allow people to change anything just to make money. Look at Christopher Paolini's wonderful story they messed up his wonderful book with that so called movie and cut out the real story nothing made sense.

    "Quite good"

    Good overall reading, strong storytelling, weak male voices, many distinct and distinguishable voices, well portrayed characters; an engaging listen.

    "fast moving, keeps you going"
    If you could sum up Divided Allegiance in three words, what would they be?

    so not boring.


    What about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance did you like?

    For the most Jennifer's perfomance is easy to listen to. there are some parts that get to fast but... oh well the sound of her voice is wonderful. I like it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, wanted to just sit here and listen, but had to things to do. But it is easy to pick it back up and go on with the story line.

    Story
    "Good old-fashioned Fantasy"
    Would you try another book written by Elizabeth Moon or narrated by Jennifer Van Dyck?

    Yes and yes, it's very enjoyable and both do their jobs well.


    Would you recommend Divided Allegiance to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would and have. It's a light read with just enough depth in it to keep it compelling and everything about it is enjoyable.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I thought the narrator did an adequate job. I wasn't blown away by it but I enjoyed it enough to continue listening.


    Did Divided Allegiance inspire you to do anything?

    It reminded me how much I enjoyed sword and sorcery and heroic fantasy.


    Any additional comments?

    Paks is a great heroine to follow, she's a traditional hero type with a sweetness to her that belies her love of fighting. It's also really refreshing to read a story without romantic entanglements and where a woman is not defined by how many men want her.

    "Unbearable narrator, fun book."
    Would you try another book written by Elizabeth Moon or narrated by Jennifer Van Dyck?

    I'd try another book written by Elizabeth Moon. But I hope that I'll never have to listen to Jennifer Van Dyck again. She does not understand what is happening in the book and speaks ridiculous voices. I found it very hard to listen to.
