Publisher's Summary

Loch is seeking revenge. It would help if she wasn’t in jail. The plan: To steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but is now in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so, Loch - former soldier, former prisoner, and current fugitive - must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shape shifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical war hammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills. This crack team of misfits will help her break into the floating fortress of Heaven’s Spire and the vault that holds her family’s treasure - all while eluding the unrelenting pursuit of Justicar Pyvic, whose only mission is to see the law upheld. What could possibly go wrong?

Awful narration

What would have made The Palace Job better?

A different narrator!


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Although Justine Eyre does a decent job on the characters, her narration of the main story is delivered in a whiny, drawling posh English accent that I just can't listen to. I didn't listen to the sample before I purchased, because it perfectly captures the issue I have.


Any additional comments?

Although I gave up shortly into Chapter 1, I had to rate the Story, so I've given it a rating of 4, which is the average of the existing reviews at the time of this one, and won't skew the story rating.

Well Written Fun...With a few twists along the way

What did you love best about The Palace Job?

A good story brought to life with great narration. I was instantly drawn to the main character and the storyline that actually had a few surprises in it as well


What did you like best about this story?

Well delivered with multiple strands of characters interwoven with enough back story to make it fun and interesting. When the individual characters begin to interact it is like well woven tapestry


Which character – as performed by Justine Eyre – was your favorite?

Actually enjoyed them all. Very well delivered with great personality for all of them. The Death Priestess though....Very interesting.
