    "Great prequels, horrible narrator "

    Great supplementary tales for anyone who enjoys the powdermage series. However, the narration was often cringeworthy.

    Bring back Rodska.

    "Great Stories, Not So Great Narration"

    The title really says it all. Although I'm sure the narrator is good in some things her voice didn't really work for me in this. I would much have preferred the same narrator who performed the other Powder Mage books.

    "good backs story, poor narration"

    I can't tell if the writing was subpart from the Powder Mage trilogy, or if the narrator just cannot compete with Christian Rodska outstanding performance.

    "Good stories"

    Enjoyed the stories, they were a good addition to the main series and a good way to keep me busy between releases.
    Having a different narrator from the main series was a bit difficult at times, as many words were pronounced differently.

    "I loved the story's"

    I loved the most of story's, the murder at the kinnin hotel dragged at times but other wise the story's were great. I didn't like the person who narrated because all the names were pronounced differently

    "Good stories, terrible narrator"

    I'm sure it's difficult to narrate in a series that already has an established narrator, but boy was Julie Hoverson's performance subpar. She pronounced Tamas' name differently than the usual narrator. Perhaps her pronunciation was correct, but it was still distracting after three books to have a new pronunciation. Much worse than that was the accents she used. Tamas faces all sorts of issues for being a "commoner" but the voice she uses makes him sound like the worst stuck up lord or duke. Erica is basically the only person with a reasonable voice. I'm glad to see that the original narrator was brought back for subsequent recordings.

    The stories are interesting and give background, though it was hard to tell if the chronologies really all fit together.

    "Enjoyed powder mage back stories."

    Enjoyed re-experiencing powder mage world. Narrator was good but threw me for a loop! Worth the time and money.

    "Reads slow"

    Play it on 1.25x, Julie Hoverson reads slow but does a good job otherwise. I wish names were pronounced the same as in the main trilogy but perhaps this is more aligned with the author since he's more involved here. These novellas as individual works are slightly better than any of the trilogy books. The setting is better than most and I hope Mr. McClellan continues writing within it.

    "Fun!"

    Missing a lot of the weight of the series but the knowledge of the future will do that. Still amazing and worth reading if you are a fan of the powder mage trilogy.

    "Top notch Brian McClellan"

    This is the second of his Novella complilations that I have listened to and I think the format is great. Nice neat stories, filling in the gaps in the novels.

    They are typically well written and give some life to the myths of Tamas and Taniel.

    I was not as keen on the narrator as with the narrator of the novels(the name escapes me) which was disappointing as I didn't think the novel narrator was particulrly good either.

    These books deserve a Rupert Degas or Colin Mace for my money as they are really good

    "Not what I had in mind"

    Whilst the storyline was fairly entertaining the narration was very off putting. Not to mention that this is not the main series of books that I intended to read.
