Great Book. Fantastic Narrator. Engrossing Series.

The best so far of this great series, expertly narrated by Kate Reading (I was already a fan of hers from The Wheel of Time series). This fifth book was so generous and satisfying that by the end I feared for a moment that it was the final book. Of course that's not the case, and I'm really looking forward to First Lord's Fury, due to come out near the end of the year!

Wonderful story, problematic recording

Would you listen to Princeps' Fury again? Why?

Yes. The story is wonderful, as is the performance.


Did Kate Reading do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Ms. Reading did wonderfully as always. Each character was easily recognizable.


Any additional comments?

Jim Butcher's story and Kate Reading's performance are both wonderful, as usual. However, this book's recording appears to have several instances where there may have been problems while editing. Words were cut off, breaks between sentences were non-existent, etc. These were not throughout the book, but occurred frequently enough to be distracting and to think that editing was rushed.
