A Paladin with Personality!

Now this is how you write a paladin, ladies and gentlemen. Cimozjen Hellekanus is proof that paladins are not all one-dimensional goody two-shoes. This book was the perfect blend of mystery and fantasy, and my only qualm is there are no more books featuring Cimozjen, which is a shame because I bet he will not lead a boring life now that the war is over.

The narrator, Steve West, breathed excitement into an already thrilling tale. His range of voices for the differing characters was excellent. He is the narrator for the other three books in the Inquisitives series.

Good narrator...that's about the end of my praise

Would you try another book from Edward Bolme and/or Steve West?

Well, I would probably listen to something performed by Steve West. The portrayal that Edward Bolme made of Minra nearly bored the snot out of me. Okay, we get it, the elf is a know it all whore. MOVE ON! I expected something exciting not, vague clue, Minra tries to get into Cimozjen's pants, Cimozjen rebuffs her. Plot moves forward slightly. Minra tries to get into Cimozjen's pants, Cimozjen rebuffs her. Plot moves forward slightly. Minra tries to get into Cimozjen's pants, Cimozjen rebuffs her. Plot moves forward slightly. Minra tries to get into Cimozjen's pants, Cimozjen rebuffs her. WILL SOMEONE JUST NEUTER THE ELF ALREADY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!


What about Steve West’s performance did you like?

He made what I did listen of the performance bearable.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The narrator was the only redeeming quality since I couldn't get into Cimozjen's actual story for all the annoying elf hormones. Or at least I hope there was an actual story over all the:
"Hi, I'm Minra and I'm always right. Oh, Cimozjen you're so handsome, let's sleep together."
"No Minra, I'm a married man."
"Awwww, but I'm the elf protagonist and your plucky side kick, you totally have to screw me, aren't I pretty enough for you?"
"Yes Minra, you are beautiful. Infuriating, but beautiful. That doesn't change the status of my marriage vows."
"But, but, just screw me. Besides, I'm always right, so you have to screw me."
"Go to sleep Minra. I'm not screwing you."
"Big meanie."


Any additional comments?

If you want to listen to basically 5 hours of almost getting into a story and lots of female elf pouting because the male protagonist refuses to bed her, go ahead. You'll enjoy it. The actual book is much longer than that, but that's as far as I could stomach listening. Sorry Mr. West, you have an enchanting voice, but there are some things that can't be overcome.
