    "Favorite book series with a great start!"

    The Demon Cycle is a great series and The Warded Man is a great intro. It's a little heavy on establishing characters at the beginning, but it all comes together so well. I can't recommend this series enough, especially if you like Game of Thrones.

    "well written"

    The first 2/3 of this book was excellent, well paced and elegantly phrased. He sped up the pace for the last third, a little too fast, making leaps that would have been nice to hear the details. I mention this because it's rare; it's usually the other way around. I recommend this book to anybody who has high standards for well written stories.

    Story
    "Tons of Rape - Avoid this book"

    The author has created a dark world where humanity is terrorized by simplistic monstrous "demons" but the most horrifying part of his world is that most women are victims of rape and most men are rapists. There is no thematic redemption, no discussion so simple as rape is bad. No single character in this story vehemently speaks out against rape. This book is poorly written. Don't waste your time.

    "Worth the credit -- buy it!"

    I couldn't believe the ratings on this book (how high they were and the number of people who have rated it), so I used one credit. Now that I have finished listening, I have joined the pack of happy fans -- I immediately bought the next book in the series. This is not a horror book, although in the first few chapters I wasn't sure what genre it would fit into or that I would even continue on. Many pages are spent developing the characters and the story threads. And then all starts to weave together into a fantasy world that is fascinating, more post-apocalyptic with monsters than horror. I found myself totally hooked and losing sleep as I kept listening to "just one more chapter." Pete Bradbury sets a perfect pitch with the book's narration. The story is well conceived and written. Don't hesitate, buy the book.

    Story
    "Torture"

    This recording is painful. The narrator has a nice voice, but his volume changes erratically. I was unable to listen to this in my car. After re-listening to the hardly audible recordings the story ends up being remarkably dark and ultimately frustrating. The stress and frustration this story sows is akin to taking out loans without need or purpose, just to let the interest accumulate.

    Story
    "Please change the Narrater, or edit out breaks"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I stopped listening to this book, because of the narrator. So many small breaks after every sentence.There is no flow in the story, just a series of sentences with breaks between. But if you dont mind the breaks, then i think the story has great potential


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Dont know, cant stand the Narrater. Gave up after 1 hour


    What didn’t you like about Pete Bradbury’s performance?

    There is no flow in the conversation. it's like a old telegrams, Stop. that's what i think Stop. what do you think? stop... end of sentence. long break


    Any additional comments?

    If all the small breaks go away, or there is a change in narrator i would love to listen to this book it sounds like it has great potential
