Not one of the series and didn’t flow so I only read a bit of it. May have liked it if I had not been wanting specifically that series.

Tried to return it actually and couldn’t

I read this because you chose Susan Ericksen....tried to read it 3 times and couldn't get through it in spite of her great delivery. It lacks depth and I just couldn't get past the first 40% of the book.

I have almost 400 books and several I've listened to more than once here in Audible since just 2011, so am an avid book junkie and I have my favorite narrators as that is what makes the book better. Some great authors you can read all you want as a book but when you listen it has to be someone who can bring your words to life.

Susan does that for you but I have to get involved with the story and be interested so I want to go forward....this doesn't do it.

Sorry.

I still remember when I finished Game of Thrones w/the cliff hanger and rushed to buy the NEXT installment only to find out "he's working on it"!

Distraught is an understatement and that is what ALL fans felt. I was mollified somewhat to find out he was working on the "Before-Story" Thought it would be an actual story ---- NOT a history lesson. I opened it today thinking YES...I finally have time to devote to my favorite show.

ONLY to find out it is a history - notes - review. In fairness I did try to see if it got better by skipping forward 4-5 times several chapters to see if I should devote time to sticking it out and see if it was indeed a real book instead at some point. NOPE.

The publishers should get their money back and you will be losing dollars IF you allow us all to get our $$ back as I'm going to return this. I'm sure everyone else will as well.

I can't begin to tell you how very - very disappointed I am in this. Fire & Blood is a great title as it created just that.

I'm also sorry as well as I really was looking forward to this and feel cheated and helpless to do anything about it.

Fantastic and read it because of the narrator. It sounds like another book could be made.

Would definitely buy it!!!!

You need to have the same person partner with you on it and all your books.

Needs depth and character. The narrator was excellent so i stayed with it to the end. Feel like I wasted my time.

Every time I thought it was going to launch and get better. It stayed low key with no big moments. Flatlined throughput the entire book.

Pulls you in further and further with every word. I love it.

Discovered it because I love the narrator. I took a chance on the author and it paid off big. Story is exceptional and characters are extremely interesting and 4 dimensional.

Great job.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES. Love the series and the story line I can't wait for the next one

Who was your favorite character and why?

Who Else....Dallas

What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She simply is fantastic at bringing the characters to life and as I can't get JD Robb to write fast enough I've explored other authors just based on her talent as a narrator. Having her as a consistent narrator combined with the talent of the author makes it a "WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE". I've had other authors who are great but then they get another narrator who does not do justice to their work and it doesn't work for them. I STOP. An audio book is a tricky thing as it is a combined piece of work.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The plot moves as a whole as always. The pieces are deep then light then deep again which takes me from start to finish in a time frame that is always too quick.

Any additional comments?

Need this as a series on tv.

What made the experience of listening to Cast in Flight the most enjoyable?

I love this series and can't wait for the next one. Fantastic job of taking me to another place which is what an author SHOULD DO. Thank you.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cast in Flight?

The entire book is fantastic and I am looking forward to the next step.

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

ALL of her books are in my library and I have them ready to read again which is unusual. I read the first because of who she has as a narrator. LOVE Khristine so gave her a shot. Then was hooked.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

LOVE it.....get entrenched and then listen to it in a couple of days in spite of my hectic schedule.

Any additional comments?

WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE. I'm always nervous there isn't going to be one but know there is always more...would love an piece to look forward to?

I wait for each new edition and the progression of the characters are always great. Plus you stay true to the entire theme and the narrator which I believe gives it more depth and detail. Thank you for another great book. I buy all of them. Noticed some are not on audible so consider adding them. Please and advise us they are available. I'll buy them immediately and know your other fans will as well.
