Great story, wonderful author

Where does Redoubt rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

That's a tough one. I love the Valdemar series! All of them.

What other book might you compare Redoubt to and why?

Can't think of one actually other than other Valdemar books.

Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favorite?

Mags, of course! He made Mags into a real person.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when Mags was chosen! That was awesome.

I wish all of the Valdemar books were available on audible. I would buy everyone!

Fantastic story, excellant narration

Would you consider the audio edition of Redoubt to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version but I loved listening to the audio book.

What other book might you compare Redoubt to and why?

Tamora Pierce's Circle series as well as the Tortall books because they both feature characters that grow from often humble origins to achieve their destinies. I also hope Nick get hired to narrate the Owl series of books by Mercedes Lackey.

Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I didn't think I had but when I checked my library, I realized that I did have another book that he narrated. He did a great job on the other book but I really enjoyed his narration of this series. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series that won't be released until November (I think). I really hope they get Nick to narrate Owlflight, Owlsight and Owlknight from Mercedes Lackey. They are some of my favorite books that she has written and I can't think of a better narrator for the series.

I had no idea how popular Nick was and how many books he has narrated. I will definitely check out some of the other books strictly on basis of his narration of this series.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A story of a boy taken literally from rags to . . . Herald?

Any additional comments?

I started listening to the first of the Collegium Chronicles books and was brought back into the wonderful world of Valdemar. I normally listen to books as I drive to work or when running errands. This time I couldn't stop listening and had to continue in my house. I think I listened to all four books in about a week.
