Loved this book. Loved the narration. There were however areas in the narration where sections were repeated (eg: End of Chapter 8). An issue with how the recordings were saved perhaps? Distraction aside, it was still wonderful.
However there are some editing issues as there are at least 3 paragraphs that are repeated.
I've read the Rift War books many times over the past 20 years and was worried that a narrator wouldn't match my memory. I had nothing to fear, other than some random pauses which must have happened as part of the mastering process the story was well told.
The story is a proper adventure/quest tale which is well paced and an excellent if too short follow up to Magician. It also sets the scene perfectly for the climax in Darkness at Sethanon.

Overall a great book, great characters and settings. One of the better fantasy series on Audible.
Unfortunately the are some strange long pauses and jumps with audio, that are obvious enough to be a little distracting

Im afraid Peter Joyce may have been given little instruction on the correct pronunciation of many of the key characters names in this series, but otherwise the performance is adequate.
He is consistent and his characterizations are subtle but effective for the most part. The voicing of Baru and Murmandamus I feel are dead wrong, but hey, that's audio books for you.
Well worth the buy if you dont have the time or inclination to sit down with this great read.
