What do you think the narrator could have done better?
My only problem with this book is with the sound quality. While the narrator, Todd McLaren is excellent, when he speaks in the character's interior voices he whispers & it is difficult to hear, especially when listening in the car. I found myself constantly adjusting the volume when he switched between the modes of voice.

To begin I've read all the books in this series as well as the "Nantucket" series before that, so obviously I enjoy his style and storytelling. But ,and I too hate when someone is full of praise for something and then drops a "but", for all of that there are times that the premise that for the good of mankind a "higher" power wipes out 99% of the world's population and leaves those remaining forever in a state feudal agrarianism, or at least until the next asteroid can be a little grating.

An enjoyable story of magic swords and evil thwarted, read by Todd McLaren in his own inimitable way well worth the time to listen to. I look forward to another of this ilk
Dispite its length this book is perfectly timed and what Stirling has improved on with here is linking character development with world development, the two don't feel separate any more and what a world it is, what was hinted before is even more a reality. This feels like the book the Emberverse has always been heading for building up on all the themes while standing on its own merits.
