Any additional comments?
First, the bad, there are some breaks in logic. They are not glaring, but they do sadly go down the path of....well, she is just an emotional women, it can be excused....so, I felt it necessary to comment on that. It doesn't take away from the story(s), but they do drop the intelligence level. Also, the main topics of each book vary widely. So, if you are anticipating a connected story from beginning to end...well, all you really get are the same characters. The characters are slightly 1 dimensional, but nothing too horrible. For these points, I subtracted stars.
Now, the good, its an enjoyable listen. The story flows, its interesting, and topics are generally cool to think about.
Conclusion, its worth a credit, but don't expect something brilliant.

What made the experience of listening to Forgotten Ages the most enjoyable?
The story is fun. A mix between fantasy, scifi, and steampunk, it is an enjoyable ride that keeps one invested in the likable and down-to-earth main characters. Descriptions of different countries and peoples are well developed and vivid, you can really picture this world.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I didn't really have a favorite character, they were all well-developed and sketched. You really did get a feel for each person in the book. Rias and Tikaya were a great couple. There was no use of miscommunication drama and not knowing if they liked each other. There was a base of mutual respect and admiration between the two that was refreshing and realistic.
Which scene was your favorite?
This collection had two books and a novella, so there were a lot of scenes. I can't think of a favorite but they were all well described. I could see the snowy north and deserted town in book 1, and the tropical island in book two. You really felt enveloped in these worlds.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed a couple of times but no extreme reactions. It was a great fun and breezy listen, made the commute enjoyable and kept my mind occupied with a fun world filled with many details and peoples. It was definitely an escape from the everyday and I would listen to it again.

Got this book on a Monday morning and never looked back.
Story is fast paced and the performance by Tavia Gilbert was one of the best I had played for some time.
Well worth getting

Not her best work the story is predictable and slow. Narrator does the best with what she has though and overall was ok but not that exciting.
This book was awesome from start to finish some moments elated joy arose others tears of sadness broke free
the narrator was a bit hyper at times which got annoying, but otherwise was good at voices.
no swearing or blasphemy so five stars for that. somewhat surprisingly gory in places for a lighthearted romance. but all ended very well.
