Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I listened to this book on my commutes. So it was free time, but it made the time go by.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Split between Laney and Celeste. Laney is our story teller so she is the deepest character and therefor automatically one of the most interesting. But i loved the image of the strong beautiful young woman in kinght's armor. (Though for some reason ny mind's eye sees her as blonde, even though the author tells us multiple times she's a redhead.)
Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, first time. I was fairly impressed. The trope of giving nobility a britt-like accent is an old one but it works.
Was Techromancy Scrolls: Adept worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
First off, lets be clear, this is a love story/action adventure between two young women. If that turns you off, it isn't for you.
The author has talent, but could have used a good editor. He has some trouble maintaining a separate "voice" for all his characters. In particular ALL his nobility say "Grand" when pleased. In one character's mouth, such an affectation helps create a unique personality. In many people's mouths, it muddies and confuses those lines of uniqueness.
He also at time uses repetitive phrases. A good editor would have pulled out both of these and made her re-write them.

Absolutely love this book, the story is different from anything post apocalyptic and keeps you wanting more.
The narration is spot on and brings so much life into the story you swear the movie is playing in your mind.
Would love to see this adapted too the silver screen!

I bought this because I'd so enjoyed the Valkyrie Chronicles and because I was hoping that Audible would quickly put the complete series on download. I can't wait to here the next instalment.

I really enjoyed this story, it’s full of interesting, likeable characters, nice slow burn romance and wonderful scenery. The narrator does a great job, I particularly enjoyed the gypsies accent. I am really looking forward to listening to all the other books in this series and highly recommend this author to everyone.
Love the idea of knights of the realm concept in a future post impact where modern life as we know has all been wiped out. Love this series so much that I have listened to this book (and the next) three times.
