Oh what fun...

I am an avid fan of Sharon Shinn, reading everything she writes. I am thrilled to see that some of her work has finally been produced for audio. I only hope that her novels of Samaria receive the same excellent treatment.
If you are yearning for some quality escapist, fantasy storytelling/ romance I highly recommend reading and/or listening to all of her novels. It is best to do The Twelve Houses in order.

Another narrator??

I really hate when narrators change, since it disrupts my view of the characters, however generally is something easily overcome. In book 5, the narrator mis-pronounces the name of several key characters! You want to talk about impacting your read, every time a characters name is mis-pronounced, I find myself yelling at the book with the correct pronunciation. Do they not check with the author on pronunciation? It seems to really hurt the flow of a 5 book series. At least when the narrator changed from book 2 to 3, they narrator pronounce character names consistently with the first narrator.

Over all, all five books are good and I would purchase again, just be prepared for some issues with flow.
