What did you love best about City of Heavenly Fire?

The story was great! Action-packed from beginning to end! The perfect climax to a captivating series.

How could the performance have been better?

Different narrators altogether. Sophie Turner was passable, even though she botched the american accent on numerous occasions, but Jason Dohring was aweful! Monotonous, choppy, his phrase intonations were all wrong and he lacks flow and feeling. I found it very difficult to stay focused on the story every time he started reading! What a shame!

Any additional comments?

Please re-produce with better narrators!
