Lots of Adventure

Paks sets out on an adventure and there is plenty in this book. This is completely different than the first book. My only complaint is the narrators choice for the elves. This is silly on my part, but they sound like the aliens in the "Galaxy Quest" movie and it grates on my nerves.

Narrator is very bad.

Loved this book and have approved of all the books in the series. I do not like the narrator at all. She does not change how she describes mundane issues with how she describes fights and battles. It is very hard to get excited about the book the first time through. Definitely would not use this narrator again. Will not seek out books read by her.

Love the story, but not the narrator

This is an old time favorite book from my youth and for me the story still holds, I love it.
But I had a huge problem with the narrator sadly, her interpretation of elven voices, especially the half-elf travel companion, was cringe worthy to me.

Unbearable narrator, fun book.

Would you try another book written by Elizabeth Moon or narrated by Jennifer Van Dyck?

I'd try another book written by Elizabeth Moon. But I hope that I'll never have to listen to Jennifer Van Dyck again. She does not understand what is happening in the book and speaks ridiculous voices. I found it very hard to listen to.
