Publisher's Summary

A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the CradleLand, the birthplace of the still-young world. All that stands in the Power's way is one troublesome line of humans: descendants of Seth. They are of the only remaining clan clinging to an all-but-dead faith. And yet it's from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion: A promise, spoken from the heart of Eden, warning of a human son yet to come - a man who would strike back with a crushing blow.The darkness is determined to stop that from happening. This redeemer must be born a human, so an incredible scheme is launched to prevent the prophecy from coming to pass. First, pollute the human bloodline; and second...kill the only one who could be humanity's deliverance.This is the first audiobook in the Cradleland Series.

"Michael Taylor is an enthusiastic and spirited storyteller. He draws on a seemingly limitless store of voices for the many characters." (AudioFile)

Great story, buy the book instead.

If you. like. the way. I punctuate. you will. love the. narration.
Michael Taylor is a terrible narrator. I literally would get a pressure headache with the way he reads the story. He was four voices: Deep and slow, pausing between EVERY word; His normal voice which would do fine reading a newspaper; a high-pitched, whiney voice, like that of an old miner from '49 gold rush; and a Minnesota grandma voice (don'cha knoo). His voice is an injustice to an audible subscriber and to this book. I feel ripped-off.

The Story is Worth Enduring the Horrible Narration

Any additional comments?

I almost didn't purchase this book because of the poor reviews on the narration, but I noticed that there was a different narrator for the other books in the series and I thought the content looked interesting. I am glad I did purchase it.The narration was truly horrible, easily the worse that I've heard on Audible, but by the end of the first half of the download I had grown somewhat numb to it. The story itself was really good. I liked the way the author set real, believable characters in a plausible representation of the pre-flood world. I found the read thought provoking and enjoyable. I guess you could buy the book and bypass the narration, but either way, it was worth the purchase price.
