the book was really good but I really didn't like the fact that they replace the narrator. plz bring Oliver Wyman back for the next one

Not having Oliver Wyman narrate was a big surprise. He established the personality and voices of the characters. With Jason Culp, the personality of Merlin, especially, recedes to the background, IMO.

Three books in you know what you are getting but the new narrator takes some getting used to!
Jason Culp largely does an excellent job but some of the key characters just don't feel right. Caleb and Narman are the main offenders with Caleb adopting an accent that hovers some where between Ireland and West Coast of Scotland without Jason ever hitting a consistent rendition. Narman has been translated from his original lilting Irish accent to finest Brum (Birmingham, England for non-uk natives).
I'm now rep books further on in the series and the strength of Jason's other character voices shines through and makes this a true joy to listen to.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is another Weber book in the safehold series. You should know by now whether or not you like the author and the series. Naval battles intrigue, etc. HOWEVER there is a new narrator who provides a very jarring performance by introducing new accents to established characters, changing established accents ( no more scottish emeraldians) and giving a very effeminate tone to Merlin (understandably).
What did you like best about this story?
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Culp?
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Trafalgar in space.
