I not a big fan of fantasy and I enjoyed this book. The characters were realistic, story was original and the narration was spectacular. I wish the story would have been more, maybe more background, more emotions or more world building, I'm not really sure what it was missing for me but it did seem to be missing part of the story, almost as if the author had more to say but didn't. I really liked the writing and the way it's written back and forth between both POV's with perfect grace. I also really enjoyed Percy and feel like he could become a swoon worthy hero. I will be listening to book 2!

What does Alex Hyde-White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
He brings a calm, centered, focused and soothing quality to his narration. Very pleasant voice. Sometimes he sounds a bit like John Hurt :) His cockney accent is pretty good, too.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It has a charming feel of old-fashioned storytelling to it.
Any additional comments?
The writing has a straightforward quality that works very well for the audio format. It feels like someone is sitting down and telling me a story. The setting is kept fairly vague, which adds to the legendary feeling of it.
The story does jump about a bit tonally. It feels a bit Narnia-like at first, then takes a darker turn. If you don't have a problem with that, it is quite enjoyable.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
It's far too short. It's a novella, not a book. It could easily be twice the length just by adding some detail and fleshing out the cardboard characters. It reads like a synopsis. I kept waiting for the proper story to begin.
Did Alex Hyde-White do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
He was OK. He has a good voice but I was puzzled and a bit put off by the very strange phrasing, and odd pauses in the middle of sentences. He differentiated between the characters well.
Did Hunters Moon inspire you to do anything?
It certainly doesn't inspire me to listen to the next book. Which is a shame, because potentially, this could be a good series. I didn't hate it, it was just a bit forgettable.
