Well written, good characters, good plot
Well written, good characters, good plot. Good job taking individual adventure and weaving it into a larger grand scale plot line
No but he did a great job
Oddly, I have listened to Richard Lee Byers' Brotherhood of the Griffon and those books have a better theme, political intrigue and characters (although Aoth is shared).Kevin Kraft was just not very good. He uses a good variety of voice for each character... but it's just not good. There is a lisp (intentional or not) that is pretty bad. Voices sound pretty flat and uninspiring.
I recommend the Brotherhood of the Griffon series. The stories and characters are more enjoyable.
Nothing. He has good range in characters but they sound horrible.
Scenes are fine but I why does the reader care? We were never given enough to care about the story or the characters... and I am a huge realms fan. Szazz stuff was interesting but too little.
The story is immediately split into three intertwined stories that are suppose to come together by the end. A good example of this is Elaine Cunningham (which she does very nicely). For some reason I felt like this was disjointed and never really made sense (like, why am I still listening, I don't care what happens in the story).
