Unprofessional Narration

It may have been a kitchen "studio". Notable annoyances: Cell phone ringing in the background ~4 times Crazy music at the end of each chapter , starting about 1/3 through the series. Someone being heard cooking in the background Whispered voice near the Mic, in unrelated to the book. Narrator being lazy with punctuation. Don't put yourself though this. The story was Ok. Writing; word choice and tired phrases, was not great. A good, not great, high school student could have written this well. A series I did enjoy by this author: Supernatural Bounty Hunter series. I could not believe it was the same author, except for one "tell" in his writing style. I made it though this stubbornly hoping it would get better. I really liked the other series.

Not bad, but...

While I enjoyed the story, and listening to the narrators voice and reading style I found the errors and super cheesy sound effects distracting. Both this series, and The Dark Slayer Omnibus, had many points where the narrator pronounced words wrong, or read the wrong name/word. There was often noise in the background, such as people talking that weren't part of the story. A page number was read, as if marking where the reader left off. I heard typing from a computer keyboard, and even a cell phone ringing. At one point it even sounded like people arguing in the back ground. It's disappointing that so many issues were prevalent, because the story would have been much more enjoyable without them. I listen to Audible nightly while I bake, and this was the first time I found so many issues with a story. hopefully it gets fixed for future listeners.

missing parts and out of order

Lee Allen mispronounces a lot of words. The editor sucks. there are several missing parts, a few are out of order and some repeat themselves. It makes for a very frustrating listen. It never says what happened to Master Sinway.

Fun story, rough narration

The story was good, but the narrator couldn’t keep one voice for one character. I don’t mean he didn’t have enough of a range I mean he used different voices for the same character. I found myself having to go back to make sure who he was talking about And the whinny voice got hard to listen to. It the reason I’m not getting the Dragon series.

The Dark Slayer Collection

This collects the first ten novels in the Darkslayer series, by Craig Halloran. The Dark Slayer series is one of Halloran’s darker series, and I think its okay for young adults, but those of your whom like to review work before letting the kiddies listen, should enjoy this work well enough. These books follows the adventures of Bish, and his hack and slash fantasy journeys. I have always taken issue with the narrator Lee Alan. He reads in a very cartoonish style, with sound effects and exaggerated, stereotypical voices. My nephews love him, but as an adult, I feel his work takes away from the seriousness of the novels. Other than that, I highly recommend the works of Craig Halloran, and thoroughly enjoy the Dark Slayer series.

Horrible editing and narration.

Narrator paused in the wrong places. In one part, a character "kicked" his dry lips in another Edmond became Edward then was once again Edmond. Very poor editing.

What a fantastic narrator

This is now the fourth huge Craig Halloran - Lee Alan audiobook I've started on. Chronicles of Dragon 51 hours Tail of the Dragon 54 hours The Darkslayer 86 hours You'll likely want to get Darkslayer before getting the Bish&Bone extension. Lee Alan tells these stories well with many different distinct voices. It's always very easy to keep track of what is going on. Highly recommended.

Loved it

My first ever purchase was Darkslayer omnibus. Over 200 books ago. It is very well done both the story and mr Allan brings this epic to life. Funny and sometimes a little vague only adds to the characters Brilliant how you can imagine in your mind the story and it heroes. Awesome.
