Fun book, decent characters, but hit & miss narration

Dig the world, story and loads of fun characters created by Kiln. James Cronin's narration had some bright moments and some very awkward rough bordering on exasperating moments. Most of the characters have interesting accents, and intimations, but a few sounded a bit ridiculous ripping the listener out of the fictional world and into dumbfounded befuddlement. A mysterious mystical monk with a folksy southern drawl... Really? Overall it was enjoyable

It's slow and obvious.

The story starts out strong enough, but it just becomes painful to try and finish. The heroes keep quitting, they ignore the obvious course of action and sometimes it feel like they do the things they do just so the writer could continue the story.

Kingdom of terrible voices

halfway through the king acquired a southern accent for no reason.

Also way to cartoon villain voices
