I usually only review when I love something, and I realize this is a "barn door/stolen horse" situation, but I did not love the production of this book. I'm not sure whether it was the narrator or the producer, but the reading was peculiar. Words were mispronounced, there was inconsistent pronunciation of certain names or words through the text, and there were a surprising number of timing and emphasis errors - weird pauses, or things that should have been read a certain way to provide a particular meaning but weren't. Another issue was the inconsistency of name pronunciations between this series and the previous trilogy, which was narrated by someone else. It all made the listening a distraction rather than an enhancement. I'm going to continue with the series, because I like the story, and I hope things improve in subsequent books.
Cynthia Barrett doesn't inspire me like some other narrators do. Otherwise, this is a great listen. Most of Mr. Saberhagen's work is this good or better.
