Stuck in a rut
The introduction of the Australian and Japanese characters promises to be interesting in later books.
The continual recapping of what characters did in previous books is annoying.
As I said above, the recapping of previous events every second chapter is really getting on my nerves in this series, is Mr. Stirling being paid by the word?
Not sure, probably the leader of the MacKenzies.
It was an enjoyable if predictable listen while at the gym or driving to work.
I've read and/or listened to the entire series since "Dies the Fire", and will continue to do so (mostly out of habit now, much like I go to every Bond film) The constant recapping is getting annoying, maybe once at the start for someone who hasn't read the earlier books (a rare bird in my opinion), but no more. Also could someone please teach Mr. McLaren how to pronounce Haida and Sporran.

Excellent start for a continuing saga
