I listened to the audiobook version of "House of Enchanted: The Revelations of Oriceran". The story is interesting and fun, with a slightly whimsical fantasy story. It has an interesting way to blend today's Earth with a fantasy setting - that was one of my favorite parts of the story.

The story focuses on the wizards of Oriceran. The world is consistent, and I like how the different factions are differentiated. The various characters each have their own voice. I also enjoyed the unique twist that soul stones added. The story is light-hearted, and while there is tension it is not of the "at the edge-of-your-seat" level. Solutions to problems are found somewhat conveniently. If you're looking for a light and enjoyable fantasy story, this will help you pass the time. If you're looking for something more serious, you probably won't care for this story as much.

As for the audiobook quality, the recording was well done and the narrator (Carly Robins) did a good job. Ms. Robins had several distinct voices that she used to good effect to differentiate speakers. Voices and tones were consistent, and the words were easy to understand. I personally didn't care for the tone used for the main character's voice, but that's a personal preference.

Overall, the audiobook is a fun, lighthearted fantasy story with a strong audio production value.
