Publisher's Summary

Mags, a young Herald trainee in Haven, the capital city of the kingdom of Valdemar, has talents not commonly found in Herald trainees.
Recognizing this, the King's Own Herald decides to train Mags as a spy in order to uncover the secrets of a mysterious new enemy who has taken an interest in Mags himself. Why is the even deeper mystery. The answers can only be found in the most unexpected corners of Mags' past...assuming he can live long enough to find them.

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.

Any additional comments?

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. <br/><br/>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.

Mag's adventures inch onwards

I think the best way to explain this book is "slow". It's another typical Lacky novel, but not one of her best efforts, unfortunately.

Picking up at some point after the last installment, "Changes", we get an in deep look at Valdemar. Whilst Bear and Lena get some plot, nothing really happens in the first half and the second half could have been told in half the space. I think the thing that really irritated me was the "plot twist" about Mags which was painfully obvious from even the plot synopsis. Urgh.

I often see in the other reviews the complaints that this series could've been a much stronger trilogy, rather than 5 books. I agree with this whole heartedly! This series started off really strongly, but has been getting weaker with each progressive book. Disapointing.
