I bought this book against my better judgement. No.
By the Sword. In as much as it has the same narrator, it is torturous to listen to.
He has never been a good narrator. Occasionally, a few of his main male characters start out with reasonable voices. However, all of his male characters wind up sounding like Dustin Hoffman in Midnight Cowboy, though often with a voice up one octave. The females always sound like bimbos with high squeaky voices. His volume is all over the place as he overly dramatizes. His angry voice goes from screaming to a swallowed whisper. He is a very bad actor. I don't know what the judges were listening to when they gave him recording awards. I avoid any book that he does. There are many series books I have skipped for just that reason.
Bring back Alexander Cendese, or any of the previous narrators, It was all so much more enjoyable before- I liked the characters then.

I would find Jack and see if he could fix this by having Dick Hill removed and Christopher Price read in his place. Hill has no sense of the character whatsoever.
When I had to stop listening and just read the book was my most memorable moment.
The narrator detracted from the book by opening his mouth and reading.
Any other Jack book is great excepting the two Dick Hill read.
Please allow a reading of Bloodline and By The Sword by Christopher Price.
The Dick Hill reading is a farce.
