The author's descriptions of the action occasionally kept me more engaged than the action itself in this historic thriller that puts a human face on what can happen when science runs afoul of dogma. The plot and characterizations sometimes charge forward with more enthusiasm that purpose, and not always in the same direction, leaving me to wonder if the author changed his mind about who the heroes and villains of the piece were. The story came together where it needed to go and covered a lot of historical and scientific ground getting there, so I'm looking forward to hearing more of Goldstone's work.
Robert Vaughn did a good job with narration -- I had no trouble understanding him, and he certainly puts fire into the action sequences.

Beautifully written. After the first few minutes the hiss of what appeared to be the reader's dentures disappeared and I appreciated the drama he gave to the reading. Couldn't stop listening. Only drawback: I wish the author had gone into more detail because what he did cover was so fascinating, I would have loved to heard more of his exquisite portrayal of the medieval world.
