Martha Wells has been fortunate to have such fine narrators for her previously issued audiobooks: Derek Perkins for "Death of a Necromancer" and Chri..Show More »stopher Kipiniak for "Cloud Roads" and its sequels.
I was really looking forward to the Fall of Ile-Rien books being recorded.
I listened to the little sample of "The Wizard Hunters' and thought "what an odd choice for a narrator", and bought the recording anyway. Mistake. I've stopped listening. The recording is too juicy, the intonation too Valley (phrases ending higher then they began), the emphasis unnatural, and the whole effect incomprehensible.
The "Fall of Ile-Rien" trilogy is great fun. Read the books and listen in your head.
