Started a bit unoriginally, but it got going quickly and kept the pace up! A good fantasy book... Now I'm just left wanting more!

Enjoyed the book but it lacked the depth and richness of Harry Potter and the excitement of the Shadow Hunter stories. Nevertheless I was sufficiently entertained to move on to the next in the series.

I found the story to be much what you would expect from the genre and the targeted age demography. It flowed well and didn't spend onerous amounts of time waffling on.
My main issue arises from the narrator. I'm fairly new to the world of audiobooks, so my apologies if this relates to my limited experience. The narrator was overly dramatic throughout the course of the story. This was appreciated in times of high anticipation and drama, but was utterly not appropriate when describing mundane tasks such as eating. So much so was the narrator's flair for the dramatic that he often struggled with linking words within a sentence. He sometimes built up the line and climaxed before it finished. It made for an, at times, somewhat disjointed experience.
Overall though, I was happy to be able to turn off the rubbish on the radio and listen to something different on the long drives to and from work.
