Wonderful! Possibly the single best series of speculative fiction I've ever read. Utterly different from my other top picks, but definitely jostling for #1.
The change in narrators is jarring, but give yourself time to adjust. Smith brings a nuance to the performance that I don't remember being present in Mays, though both are excellent.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I can't recommend this book to anyone; the narrator is atrocious. He croaks and growls. He uses incomprehensible accents to denote different characters and inexplicably adds confusing pauses and timing choices between words. Just awful, awful.
What other book might you compare Seven Surrenders to and why?
This is the second in a series and matches the first (Too Like the Lightning) with a variety of speakers, and is in the style of spoken-word history.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of T. Ryder Smith?
Do you think Seven Surrenders needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Can't say as yet. Still considering.
Any additional comments?
This book needs to be re-recorded with a different narrator. Since it's a series, they should get the narrator for the first one, Jefferson Mays, whose voice and talents are quite well suited to this text.

Excellent novel. I just finished and am weeping real tears. Wonderful characters, exciting plot, possibly the best worl building I have ever seen.
not a fan if the performance though. The decision to give Bridger a lisp really bothered me. A lot of the accents weren't so great.
