This is a short but unusually interesting audiobook about a street urchin rescued by a kind, powerful benefactor. It is a story that tells more of compassion and kindness to others, than a definitive plot. The action in the story feels secondary, like a byline rather than integral to the story. I was not keen on the narration, I found his voice distracting. The sing-song, somewhat drawn out quality of his voice failed to impart the any tension, emotion or action for me. Having said all this I did enjoy this story but, even though the author wrapped up the threads at the end, it still felt incomplete, feeling a bit like a long prequel to a much bigger story. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation to review.

Where does Street Fox rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The deep meaning and hope is sturdy. It provides a strong foundation in the Erdemen world building. I'm intrigued to check out the series, which a short, in-between, or prequel usually fails to move me to do. I enjoyed the story, not the narration.
What did you like best about this story?
The hope, kindness, and goodwill of those who have towards a young man who has nothing. It's part of the calling to the full length novels, with the promise of fully developed, well-rounded characters.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
No. the narrator read it like it was a poem. Yet flatter and dull. I wouldn't pick up another audio with this narrator.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It's less than 45 minutes and took me two mornings to complete, to start my day with my cup of coffee. With a different narrator, I may have been more eager to listen while I prepared for work.
Any additional comments?
The talented C.J. Brightley has brought a whole world into a short story. I can't recommend this audio, but would suggest picking up the ebook!
