Would you consider the audio edition of Blood of the Wolf to be better than the print version?

I listened to the audio version. I listen to dozens of audio books while working. This Narrator is one of the best in the business. I know you will enjoy it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood of the Wolf?

A missed arrow shot lol

Have you listened to any of NIck Ellsworth’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes he is very good. He is one of the best there is.

Steven McKay is a good author who has the ability to surprise the reader a number of times in the book.

It is the year 871, when England was Angle-Land. Of seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, five have fallen to the invading Vikings. No trait is more valued than loyalty, and no possession more precious than one's steel. Across this war-torn landscape travels 15-year-old Ceridwen, now thrust into the lives of the conquerors.

Unfortunately the story is destroyed by a very poor presentation by the reader. I got to the third chapter and gave up. Reading an audiobook takes a good actor and this lady while literate with a fine voice is lacking the skills. Last one of this series for me will delete it and not finish it.
