Publisher's Summary

A half-zythian bard named Vanx is in chains for bedding the Duchess of Highlake. The Duke wants him dead, but his wife secretly sends their daughter to buy his freedom from the slave markets. This is bad news, for bad things can happen to an ill-guarded caravan in the mountains. When the Duke's mercenaries attack to kill the adulterous prisoner all hell breaks loose. Now, the only way Vanx and the Princess of Highlake can escape the Duke and his men is to somehow make it through the Wildwood, a place that no one has ever returned from….

Decent story, horrible narration.

Would you listen to Through the Wildwood again? Why?

No. The narrator has issues pronouncing simple words, like "liege," "cicada," and "Wyrm." It's like the narrator has read the words, but doesn't know how they sound like. This, in turn, ruins the experience for me. There are no real differences between the characters voices.

Would you be willing to try another book from M. R. Mathias? Why or why not?

Sure. These seem like small books and I'm okay with that as they're fun to read.

How could the performance have been better?

Have the narrator learn what the words are so that he can read them properly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really, but it's a decent book.

Any additional comments?

I would appreciate it if people would listen to these and vet that the audio is correct. Unfortunately that throws off the experience so much.

could be better

What did you like about this audiobook?

I love the book I love the author he is fantastic

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Yes he is very descriptive and I always feel like I am in the story.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Everything all he did was read the words every character had the same voice. He sounds like he has cotton mouth, I wish they would have someone else narrate this book and all the others that follow.
