my mistake, this is part of the series, also works as a stand alone.
I was enthralled, love when there is so much intrigue that you have to read just one more sentence. ....
Great book by Feist as always, but dreadful narration. The guy needs to learn how read clearly and consistently. Sometimes staccato, other times in a sine-wave of speed, other so fast it's difficult to know when a breath would be taken. Also he needs to learn how to pronounce certain words, as he's clearly guessing. Loved the book, hated tge narration.
What would have made A Crown Imperilled better?
Why did they not stick to Peter Joyce who narrated all the first two books in this trilogy bewilders me. It's jarring, all the pronunciations of characters is not slightly different, but massively. Also the style of narration is flat with no emotion and monotone making it difficult to bother listening too. It may just be bearable if all three in this trilogy were read by the same narrator but to use one for the first two then switch is unfathomable and ruined the whole set for me.
Would you recommend A Crown Imperilled to your friends? Why or why not?
Only as book not audio book unless it is narrated by a different person, steer well clear of John Meagher
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Narration ruined this, so much so after 1/3 of the book i just gave up and bought the actual book and read it so i could find out what happens in the end of the series.

If you could sum up A Crown Imperilled in three words, what would they be?
Listened to all the others and Peter Joyce does a good job of narration. Imagine my annoyance to find him gone for the next one. I'm trying to listen to it, but an hour in i want to pull my hair out!
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of John Meagher?

So, the only issue i have is with the change in narrator. No slight intended to either voice narrator, but the difference between the two took me a while to overcome before i could settle back into the story.
Once I adjusted, great narration and story again. Feist is a master and this series his magnum opus. Really undervalued on audible.

A Good read overall but this chap simply isn't to the calibre of Peter Joyce.
