Full cast of narrators includes James Massey.
This has been my first time listening to an audio drama/audio book. The story itself is refreshing. While centered on the goal of saving the world as they know it, the story centers on four people learning about each other and overcoming their differences and prejudices to form strong bonds of friendship. The characters can all be related to, even the main villain. I feel it's not often you come across a story that makes you sympathize with the villain along with the hero(es). The world is richly painted, and they story is easy to fall into. I would say this story is geared more towards young adults, but I'm in my thirties and enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it, and I look forward to the sequel.
A well spun tale! Kept me on the edge of my seat at times, a wonderful listen.
