A sequel to a series, The Witches of Galdorheim

I haven't read the series this story follows, I may have enjoyed it more if I had and was already invested in the world and in some of the characters from previous stories.
The story was well paced with good prose. However I couldn't buy the logic of the antagonists plan. As a way to achieve their goals and also given the relationships the antagonist had with the other characters in the story it just made no sense to me, either logically or emotionally. As a shorter work, I'd guess it's a novelette, there seemed to be some unnecessary repetition of details and re-summation of plot points which should still be fresh in the readers mind.
The narration was good overall though let down by the handling of some foreign accents.
Overall though it was an engaging short read. If you read and enjoyed The Witches of Galdorheim series then I'm sure you'll enjoy this story.

Kudos to Danny Hughes-Narrator

As the author, I can only honestly review the narrator and producer. I'd say Danny Hughes is topnotch. He managed to create memorable characters by inflection, speech patterns, and accents.

Also, top marks to the audio book producer: Archieboy Audiobook Production.
