old school radio drama fun

To me, this felt like one of the old Lone Ranger or Flash Gordon Serials. Lots of action and adventure that rolls the plot along so you don't ask really deep questions. It's there to be enjoyed and I did. The narration was great, the dialog was steady and the story kept moving. I was given a copy of this for an honest review and I honestly enjoyed it!

Loved It!!!!!

I love Brian Barr and his writings! This first installment of his serial was absolutely wonderful to listen to! Listening to this story made me want to get my Forgotten Realms books out to reread them! This story is fantasy instead of SciFi but still Mr Barr's excellent storytelling. The narration was excellent! I love the way Jason Sprenger narrates. He has an easy cadence, excellent distinct character voices and sound effects. I know a few reviewers don't care for the sounds but I really enjoy the enhancement. All in all, a really enjoyable listen and I look forward to hearing the next installment to this serial. If you're a D'n'D or Forgotten Realms fan the you'll want to check this story out, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful Introduction to Cherubim of the Ultima

This initial installment to Cherubim of the Ultima passes the test for what I'm looking for in an audio book. Author Barr delivers another pleasing tale, which Narrator Sprenger delivers in a powerful performance. Kudos to the talent in each of these men.

Science Fiction Combat

I'm not much of a science fiction fan. This book however had me consumed within the first couple of minutes of listening. I'm not sure what I enjoyed more the story or the narration. Jason Sprenger always does an amazing job narrating his books. The sound effects that he adds helps to bring the books to life. I highly recommend this book to all.

A fantastic story.

If you enjoy sword fighting masters and super natural beings kicking each others arse, then you'll enjoy Ran and his determination to stop the Genisis circle. I'm keen to read the next chapter!

The beginning of an addiction

First off let me just say that serialized stories aren’t for everyone. We live in a world and a generation that’s all about instant gratification. Having to wait for each installment can deter many. That being said, if you have the patience to wait this will be one to add to your wishlist and your cart. The story is not as refined as some of Barr’s other works yet there is a reason for this. It’s one of his earliest works that is only now being revealed and revitalized. If this is your first introduction to his work then take it with a grain of salt and realize that in these stories is the diamond in the rough. Find it and enjoy it. The characters are easy to grasp and the plot is quick and to the point . This first installment will hook you.

Pretty good serialized fantasy

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, I've listened to some of the other books by Brian Barr and enjoyed them. This was a different style story, though. This was more sword and sorcery style fantasy. Not a complaint, just noting the difference from his metal series. Anyway, I really enjoyed this story, short though it was. The narration was just ok. It was a little dry, but no so much that I didn't enjoy it. All in all, this is a short but entertaining serialized story. I'm certainly interested in continuing it to see where it goes.

I recommend listening at 1.25 speed

This was a good short story. Maybe a little too short for my taste. I would have like for the author to go into more detail about Ran, the main character.

The real downside to this book was the performance. I felt like the narrator talked too slowly and paused too long between paragraphs. I had to increase the speed to 1.25 just for it to sound normal.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Fun Fantasy Serial

This story brings to mind fantasy novels of people with swords and magic and grandiose goals meeting in brutal combat. in one word: fun. Sure there's some character building and backstory but you're listening for the combat and that is the best part. The author has started a rip roaring yarn I'd be glad to come along with.

Narration was good and didn't take anything away from the experience but aside from some cursory sound effects doesn't add too much.

I received the audiobook review code for this at my request and am voluntarily posting this honest review.

Fast action

I voluntarily asked for this auto book for free and am voluntarily leaving a review. This book literally grabs you from the begging. Ran is trying to stop Naga from ending the world and his life. Once a member of an elite group Ran now seeks to stop Naga from setting off the end of times running into members of Naga’s circle that have been tasked to bring him in. Definitely love to know what happens next.
