4.5 out of 5 stars

Technical stuff:

The good: great quality recording, no hisses, pops, etc.

The bad: the whole book is one track, so listening in multiple sessions can be tricky.

The story:

The good: this is an amazing and amazingly absorbing tale of how the lives of a group of young people become transformed by events totally beyond their imagining. Catrin Volker is a wonderful strong female lead who doesn't fall into the "male" pattern - she remains herself throughout. A great read that I highly recommend for adults and teens!

The bad:

Um, I can't think of anything bad to say about this book.

Engrossing tale that leaves you wanting more!

Would you listen to Call of the Herald again? Why?

Yes.

In fact, I plan on reading the entire series to date again now that I've been reintroduced in a new way.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Call of the Herald?

At one point, Catrin is chastised playfully by her companions. This literally brought a smile to my face and, believe it or not, a chuckle I could not adequately explain to my wife.


Which character – as performed by Chris Snelgrove – was your favorite?

Simply put, Kenward. I never thought to voice him with a British accent.

Worst? Catrin and Miss Marin... Can't blame him though!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Of this, I am not certain, though I do know that each trilogy in this series could very easily be made into a film. I would be more than happy to see it in theaters... I normally wait until movies are out for rental via Amazon.


Any additional comments?

Maybe consider another voice actor, if not 2. There are many females coming into the story soon as well as an ever growing cast of males. Snelgrove surely found it painfully difficult giving all of the characters in this opener a unique voice. It would be near impossible to do the same for the rest of the series.
