Yes, I read the whole series (three books). Humor was usually apropos and entertaining, as the other two books. In this one, the plot and humor slid toward the asinine to such a degree that I had to take ‘endurance’ breaks and skip ahead through the ridiculous parts just to finish rather than give up. Too bad it wasn’t on a par with the others.

I’ve listen to so many LRJ books. Couldn’t even finish this. The male narrator speaks in such Batman/Adam West overkill that I could hardly know whether to laugh or cry. No storyline is worth this torture.

not til about 3/4 through that I felt character development took off so that I cared about the protagonists and story. A new series, but I felt that much of the early parts of the book could’ve either been more interesting, more engaging, or left out altogether. Nothing made me care about each character’s fore story in the absence of any plot reason given to motivate or integrate the plot. When it finally fell together, it was up to the author’s usual caliber.

What would have made A Sorceress of His Own better?

Plot content. Character development.

What was most disappointing about Dianne Duvall’s story?

Storyline was very simple and shallow. Seemed like a teenage comic book romance

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator sounded foolish due to the silliness of the storyline and lack of content/character depth

Decent story, but hard to listen to the erratic cadence of the narrator, who appears to be English speaking, but apparently cannot read with the appropriate rhythm, inflection or flow.

Had to stop reading after three chapters. I don't know where all the stars come from reading this book. 'Sophomoric technique' is an understatement. Complete waste of my time.

I am so glad the author included the first ending! I found the rewrite less compelling then I usually find Leveque's work. I tried to return the book, towards the end, but could not. Therefore I listened to the Entirety, and was so glad that I was able to hear the original ending, which I preferred greatly, and felt Entirety, and was so glad that I was able to hear the original ending, which I preferred greatly, and felt was richer and made more sense.
