Book 2 just came out and book 1 was so good I'm re-listening again! Veronica Giguere is my favorite narrator so I originally took a chance on this nov..Show More »el and immediately fell in love. I've waited for the sequel and just discovered it's out, bought it and immediately downloaded book 1 again to re immerse myself in this magical universe before going on to book two...it's a pleasure all over again and I'm so excited to be back in this universe full of plot twists, intrigue. and special creatures.
in fantasy I think it's so important for the narrator to be able to captivate us readers and sweep us away...Veronica does just that, bringing this lovely story alive...along with a superb story this is a great combo!
I don't get the couple people who don't like Veronica... her pacing, personalities, voicings, and the emotions she imparts to each character are fantastic...she speeds up and slows down wonderfully, imparting a unique and realistic ambience to her stories. She lives every line and her dedication to the story...translating every line perfectly...is a tantamount to her genius as a narrator.
as to Felecia's review, i think it's ridiculous... a good fantasy takes time to develop it's characters and this it's done wonderfully; every chapter it's exciting and never loses flow.... Oh i just don't know where to begin... there are so many audio books I've found boring and predictable... I've listened to hundreds...and this id's one of the best
