what In the world did you guys do with Stephen hoye?? that man was your ace in the hole for the dragon age series and you bring in a droll nasally sounding Gildart??
Mr. Hoye captured my heart and left me hanging on to every word in the stolen throne and the calling.
I don't know what's going on audible with your performers in these books but the quality of readers is severely lacking. luckily for you guys this is a book I've been wanting to listen to for ages so I'm going to fight through the hell that Mr. Jackson puts everyone through in his books during his destruction of exciting literature.
now that I've listened to it I'll say that the story was great. still narration left much to be desired.
Everyone complains abut the narrators reading pace, but a simple adjustment to the speed of the audio (1.25x) fixes this. In fact it sounds so natural I'm half convinced they slowed it down on purpose to make the book seem longer.
New narrator trudged through the prose like it was a waist deep tar pit he was trying to cross in no hurry. I found my eyes rolling into the back of my skull sometimes while he lilted each......and......every.....word.....and.....sy...lla....ble.........and generally seemed intent on adding at least another collective 3 hours to the novel through his pauses alone.
If he read quicker, I'd have loved him. Great voices--especially Rhys and Cole--but unfortunately the unique voices weren't enough to pull the narration out of its 2 star rating.
I still recommend the novel to any Dragon Age fan!
Having played through the game several times I feel very close to these characters so it was great to get a back story for Cole!
Words can not describe how I felt about this story, or should I say about the series in general. As a fan of the games starting off with origins moving onto inquisition. Reading the back story's of such the stolen throne, and the calling I am wanting even more story and lore. I highly recommend this book if you are a fan of not only the dragon age series but any fantasy story.
although sometimes the narrator's voices got a bit confusing as they were not always consistent, they were a solid 98% of the time. I have also fallen in love with Cole, his story and character are brilliant.
