I'm better at reading...

I received this book in audio format from the author....and I absolutely loved the prologue. After that 7 chapters in I decided to suspend the audio version and wait to get it in a format I can actually read. I appreciate the way this author thinks...referring to "listening for his spirit"...the heart still beating inside ones chest as ones spirit still inside of them, is just lovely. Equally lovely is the voice given to the animals with equal importance to the bipedal or humanoids...My sincerest apologies to the B.J. Edwards for my ineptitude at listening to the story as compared to reading it. I do look forward to picking up where I left off when I can engage my entire attentive brain...my ears are just wayward spirits that cannot focus on the sound. I do love the narrator's, Jus Sargeant's, voice. Beautiful cadence and timber to it...life just won't let me tune in deep enough to reach the finish line.

I thought the story was interesting enough yet rather slow paced. I speed up the audible version to 1.5x. That helped me to stay with it. I loved the narrator and his use of multiple voices. I think that helped tremendously. I am giving this 4 stars for the original elements of the story and the exceptional narrator. Even if I struggled to finish it...that may just be me having trouble staying focused. I am going through that phase of reading about 5 or 6 books at once right now and trying not to start another before I finish the ones open. Happy to have finished this one deep down...I really can't explain why :/
