    Story
    "Superior writing, excellent narration."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the Beast Master series to any one 10 to 100, male or female. There are no objectionable words for any age allowing parents to feel they must hear it first although parents will enjoy it as well. The writing is superb to the point you can't tell if written by male or female. The characters drive the story not the gender of the author. Richard J Brewer accommodated vocal inflections that defined each character, never once muddling the emotion or characteristics of each one. Listened to it twice because of the story and the story teller. This would be great for family nights. Like listening to the radio stories decades ago. I truly hope Audible acquire the entire series but the ones they have are worth collecting.


    What other book might you compare Lord of Thunder to and why?

    The Web of the Witch World by Andre Norton. Adventure in another place and time with the same character driven story.


    What about Richard J. Brewer’s performance did you like?

    Character vocals are clearly separated, never muddled, handles a dozen different characters with ease. Varies the cadence, accent, emotional range of each character individually. Within minutes you know which character is 'speaking' before the name is given because Mr. Brewer is that consistent. Will certainly look for his narrations again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when Storm and Logan were separated under deadly conditions in the mountain. Although half brothers and not raised together, you were reverently aware of how close they had become, how deeply they respected and trusted each other. Mr. Brewer made me see the faltering, the fatigue, the connection. I thank you, Mr. Brewer.


    Any additional comments?

    please find and complete this series, hopefully with Mr. Brewer narrating.

    Story
    "Defending your country - winning your home"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This second book was the first I read as a lad and intrigued me with the reality of the impact of outrageous science from long lost civilisations on a mechanistic society, cultural sensitivity to indigenous locals who weren't quite as savage as they appeared and a love of animal companions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Storm whose grief from the loss of his history and family is a very believable motivation for the action.
