yep, lots of 🐀

I liked the narrator -except when she was doing most of the children's voices, they were a bit fearing at times ( same with the skaven voices) , though her standard narration voice was lovely.

this is definitely a kid's book though so it was a fun adventure to listen to and quite cute, but don't expect to see anything dark here.

not sure if it's just the new life or the writer but, I remember skaven being 6-7' tall in lore Canon 🤔 either way they're much smaller here too, dunno that was just a thing that kept coming up and it irked me.

poor editing work

the book is not bad.... but the narrator fluctuates a lot between low and high pitch. too much whispers and shouts... when im at the gym i cant hear the whispers.... even at maximum... and then there are the shouts..... thats annoying when the sound is at maximum... for this one it would be good to have the closed captions.... lol

More fun, this time with Skaven

I enjoyed the first book in this series and this one lived up to it. It had some interesting new characters and a fun look into the underworld of the Warhammer ratmen known as the Skaven. It was well paced and has the feel of a good kids movie with lots of chases and a few fights and cliffhangers. It gave an interesting follow up to a question raised in the first book but didn't tie it all up neatly which was refreshing. I would also like to say that the reader is very good and not at all like I thought she would be (she is a very good actress).

Compared to the first not as great

Was not happy with the 2nd book compared to the first, its alot shorter and don't feel like much happens in the time.
