Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
An ok book. As a huge fan of the games - it was worth a listen. But I don’t think MEA has enough depth and breadth in its lore to rival with the Original Trilogy just yet. Alas, we didn’t really learn anything new (that wasn’t anticipated by the community) about the MEA universe or Cora herself. Still going to romance her in my next playthrough though:) She is a good character.
What three words best describe Fryda Wolff’s voice?
I liked Fryda’s voice work as FemRyder in the game, but I think BioWare can do better in finding a narrator. She has trouble doing male voice AND (which is just unforgivable) miss pronounces a lot of names and locations (like Palaven). Let me tell you, nerds like me are very sensitive to that.
Consider the following narrators:
Alix Wilton Regan
Tricia Janine Helfer
Any additional comments?
Let’s hope “the lost ark” makes up for lack of DLC and lore so far (yes, we are still mad about that).

I've enjoyed the other ME tie-in media, but this book is the first one that evoked the feeling of playing ME 1-3. I particularly enjoyed the way Jemisin & Walters' telling of Cora's story. The book also gave the context and emotional weight I was looking for in my first playthrough of ME: Andromeda. Time to pick up ME:A again. :)

this story was another awesome addition to the saga and the writers knack for detail and ability to draw you into a vast world is outstanding. the narrator fryda wolff again has out done herself. her voice acting is so spot on and engaging you feel like you are right beside them in the adventure. hope to see alot more of these story from the mass effect games come to life through these books.
