some of the best narration on the best stories
This series by Jim Butcher and narrated by James Masters are perennial favorites of mine. you simply can't go wrong.
Fantastic series, beautifully performed
I can't say enough good things about this series. The characters are all wonderfully, believably flawed and you fall in love with each in turn. the plot moves at a brisk pace with surprises. High fantasy meets ensemble heist. it is just glorious.
A great installment of a wonderful series
Every book in this series has been delightful with the perfect narrator to bring the characters and the story to life. I have savored every minute of these audiobooks.
I will say the plot mechanations gelt a little too twisty in this book, but they all made sense in the end. The effortless mix of high fantasy elements with wise cracking heist team is just so fun.
Flat story, flat characters read, flat monotone
The protagonist Cara, is described as being flat and unemotional, which I guess the author carried off successfully. She was completely flat. There was nothing to relate to. she passively progressed through a muddy plot without much reaction. The rest of the characters were similarly two dimensional with no spark. I made it through two books now and I can't tell what the point of the plot was.
Wheeler is consistently hood
I am constantly impressed and entertained by Jeff Wheeler and his books. I have devoured everything he has written and find myself hoping, hunting for more.
A compelling and exciting story across the series
I really enjoyed the way the author incorporated religious lore we know into a new and fantastic idealogy. the crusaders and knights and medieval notions of chivalry take on a vibrant feeling when combined with a palpable magic.
Luke Daniels combined with Kevin Hearne = gold
Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator in his own right, but the way he joyfully goes all in voicing Kevin Hearne's ridiculous fictional dog Oberon is pretty much my favorite thing in audiobook ever.
