Kes is all set to become the MRT's next leader. He's a shoo-in for the job - except for his impatience with amateur climbers and his inability to hold his tongue. When he and Rory are given the job of guiding two important visitors across the Fleet range, it's a test of his tact, to say the least. But nothing about this mission is as it seems, and soon Kes is facing the most terrifying challenge of his life.

Wrong narrator ruined it
The narrator was not poor just completely inappropriate. It was so distracting that I can recall more about the narration than the story.
A very British story set in Scotland narrated in a north American accent, mostly. Common British phrases were mispronounced of course but others, such as 'arse' sounded so strange in an American accent that I would concentrate on that for a minute and lose track of the story.
The text says that they tone down their accents when speaking in front of tourists but revert to stronger accents when speaking to each other. This must be why the narrator chose to do most of the dialogue in a North American accent and then occasionally use a strange attempt at Scots.
The audiobook should either have used a British narrator capable of the accents or transposed the setting and dialect to North America.
