At last in audio, but this narrator isn't the best
Yes, with reservations about the narration in particular. Also, by today's standards, the story might be considered a bit stilted, but these have been favorites of mine since they were first published, and they are good tales, with fine characters and a lot of excellent research behind them.
Hard to choose. Kelson, of course; Dhugal has a great role here. Saying more could be a spoiler.
Simon Vance, John Lee, Dick Hill, many others. Anyone who can do different voices well and who knows how to sound like a Highlander. Nick Sullivan over-enunciates often; seems to have made some particularly odd choices for voices for some of the characters - Alaric Morgan's deep voice is awkward and flattened, Bishop Arilan sounds quavery when he's young and active; didn't do his homework about the Latin words; and is especially awful with the Highland accent.
I like to think I'll buy the rest of this trilogy, but I really get annoyed at Nick Sullivan's reading.
Thanks for getting these books into audio.
