What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The narrator was hard to understand. Her accent slurred several words together so that much of the time, I wasn't sure what she was saying. Her pitch was also a little high, so that could've added to the problem.
I can't comment on the story itself as I really couldn't get past the first 10 minutes.
Would you ever listen to anything by Angela Highland again?
With a different narrator, probably.
What didn’t you like about Gia St. Claire’s performance?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Valor of the Healer?
Couldn't say as I didn't finish listening to it.
