I’ll be honest the reason I bought this story was because I figured if it was bad, it was still cheaper than seeing a bad movie and the premise seemed rather intriguing too. Well, it didn’t disappoint; I enjoyed “The Alchemist” immensely and wanted to listen to it again right after I finishing it. However, I didn’t want to listen to “The Alchemist” again without listening to “The Executioness” story at least once, unfortunately I was dredging that part. The first part of the story mentions executions a lot and all I could think was “Great, now I have to listen to someone deal with all the killing they have done”. As you listen to “The Alchemist” you cannot imagine how one is supposed to be enthused for the upcoming story, but I continued to listen and to my astonishment the story turned out exceptional. I can’t say much about the story without ruining… things (that may not be the right wording for it, but naming it anything else would spoil it); if Audible will not tell you much then neither will I. Jonathan Davis and Katherine Kellgren do a fine job of narrating the story and I especially enjoyed Katherine Kellgren who seemed perfect for this narration. Both stories are wonderful in their own way and equally evocative.

I would recommend this audiobook for several reasons. If you've never read these authors, this is a good chance to see if you like their writing style, the price is right, and the narrators are excellent (Katherine Kellgren is one of my favorites). But they are also excellent adventure stories (fantasy/sci-fi?). After listening to the entire book in one sitting, I've added these authors to ones I'll definitely read again.

You become absorbed very quickly, setting you up with a sense of intrigue. Doesn't rely on endless charactors and at no time does it seem to drag. Imaginative, compelling, dark and even a little shocking in places. An effortless read or listen.
