Interesting and Intriguing

Samurai tales: Legend of the Great Black Bear is a prequel to Samurai: The Three sons written by Timothy Levester McCallum. This novella helps to fill out the world of McCallum’s Samurai universe. It also shows a lot of growth on the author's part as well. The story was engaging and creative. I enjoyed that the story started around one character and ended around another. The only shortcoming of the story is the author’s descriptions of the characters. They were too clinical, more like going down a checklist than telling a story.

The narration was done by Lauren Garvin. This narrator did a great job all around. Having a female voice in a fantasy action novel was a fresh and great idea. Although she is a different narrator from the first book, she made the change almost completely seamless.

Editing, quality, and production were on par with most books I have listened to. It was clear, with no issue with sound or quality.

This Audiobook was provided free of charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher in exchange for a non-bias, honest review.
