    "These book are great."
    Would you listen to First Rider's Call again? Why?

    I read these books and enjoyed the story and can't wait for each addition. When I heard that they were doing an audio book I was a bit Leary. Some are done horribly, but Ellen Archer did a tremendous job. I have enjoyed listening to her and can't wait for the next.

    "Excellent"
    Where does First Rider's Call rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listened to the first book and as soon as I got done I had to have this one. This is an excellent series! Checked the author's website & book 5 is being written now. Can't wait to hear it!


    What about Ellen Archer’s performance did you like?

    I love the voices she does! Each character has their own sound which is wonderful! Makes for a very enjoyable "read"!!

    "Seat gripping"
    What made the experience of listening to First Rider's Call the most enjoyable?

    I'm not big on fantasy novels but this was a free one, so I thought why not have nothing to lose, Man! it grabs you from the first page and doesn't stop. The narrator is fantastic I have recommend this to my grandson (14) got him hooked too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Rider's Call?

    the Berry sisters, who would know they are very important


    Which character – as performed by Ellen Archer – was your favorite?

    All of the characters she is great added to my favorite


    Any additional comments?

    Read or listen to all of this series you won't be disappointed!

    "A must for fantasy lovers"

    A very good performance draws you into this rich fantasy land. The character development draws you into this strange but somehow familiar world.

    "once again, well done"

    As the second book, the story deepens and sucks you into the story and doesn't let go. the story continues and is wonderful.

    "Wonderful story"

    I enjoyed reading the book and, now, listening to the audiobook. Ellen Archer does a terrific job with the many voices and a surprisingly good Scottish burr for Lil Ambrioth. In my head, I've pronounced many of the fictitious places differently; particularly accents on syllables.

    "It gets better..."
    Any additional comments?

    First Rider's Call starts with a bang, then gets v-e-e-e-r-r-r-y slow. Another irritation is that the main character seems to start from zero, without the history or knowledge she gained in the first book -- she seems too clueless, so you want to whack her over the head and tell her to read her own story from the first book! :-) But the novel improves about halfway thru, and the story really takes off from there. It's worth the wait, especially if you're enjoying the series.

    In terms of performance, Ellen Archer does a decent job. My only substantial complaint is that her pacing is also slow -- enough so that I shifted the playback speed to 1.25 and left it there for the entire book (without realizing it!).
