This is the second book in the series and, as a fan of the show, I am enjoying them very much. That said, I read the first book on Kindle, but switched to audible for the second due to a lack or reading time. The narrator is mediocre on the prose but not the worst I've heard and easy enough to listen to.
The dialogue though is grating and difficult to get through. It might be easier if I hadn't seen the show, but I doubt it. These are established characters with specific cadences and accents (all of which are different from each other). She attempts to do an approximation of, as best I can tell, a generic rp English accent for all three of the Mikealsons, but doesn't pull it off for any of them, which is distracting at best and annoying at worst.
I understand that very few narrators (I can only think of one or two) could replicate the voice of characters who are intrinsically tied to another performer, and wouldn't expect them to, but it would be better to just admit that and read it straight than mangle an accent that isn't even the right one.
The story is a good quick read and a great companion piece to the show, and I will probably still buy the third audible book (because I want the rest of the story), but I just wish it had a better narator.
i love this book as well as the first one grwat story gives you a little history on tge tv series
