Great Start to Sequel Series
Listening Speed 1.8x
A sequel series done right, there is an emphasis on new characters and some references to old characters. This series sets up the plot for the interaction with Earth, and looking at why the Great Guilds formed in the first place. From a character point of view its about living under someones shadow and being constantly compared to someone. In the end this story is about making your own path. The book is self-contained there is no real cliff-hangers,
MacLeod Andrews performance is excellent. Characters have distinctive voices (i.e differentiable), the pacing and speed of the story was well done. Production was excellent I did not notice any audio anomalies while listening.
Overall Jack Campbell has done an excellent job of starting the sequel series to Pillars of Reality with a great balance between old and new characters. Characters felt realistic in the decisions they made (even if they might not be the best). It also gives an interesting perspective on a possible future society from Earth. The story has a lot of action including jumping off of trains, sailing the high seas, encounters in alleys, lots of running away. Also, there is an awesome underdog scene in which I pumped my fist in the air with some great justice.

What did you love best about Daughter of Dragons?
While I understand the need to put filler in a book to increase the volume, I was frustrated with amount of teenage angst, whining, and constant misunderstanding of Jason!

The blatant direct explanation if themes hit me like a verbal mugging. Instead of leading you to any conclusions yourself about any moral questions, they explain each issue like reading from an encyclopedia.
