Listened to this with our kids on a road trip. It kept everyone engaged ( after the prologue) and interested. Knights in shining armor, a great battle to fight, and even a bit of romance. A great family listen!
If the story was about the prince instead of Kendrick, given how many pages were devoted to how awesome the prince is, i have to wonder, why are we reading about Kendrick?
Narrator was ok, but the prose seemed disjointed
This was a short book. It felt like a side story instead of an intro to the world and characterthat the first book of a series should be. After listening, i still don't know who the villain is and why the hero is worth caring about.
The characters seem shallow and one dimensional. Evil is evil because it's evil. This was fine a century ago, but such characters seems ridiculous in the 21st century.
Mainly a Sci-Fi, Fantasy guy, but also classic fiction, and detective books.
Superficial, simplistic, not written for an adult, and weak even for the target age.
Narration was not bad, but hate background music during narration.
Found it bad enough to be amusing and finish the 5 hr.

Descent story. But be warned, this a story for young teens. Well worth the cost for that age.
