Narrator's voice gets in the way of the story.

Sounds like everyone in Eberron has a slight Irish accent. Darker characters have either the high pitch witch or the deep menacing voice.

Great Introduction to Eberron

This feels like the world that I've been waiting to read about for years! Finally, a world that combines fantasy and sci-fi in a very Final Fantasy-esque way, one where the magic integrates into the technology while keeping the magic part mysterious. Its sci-fi elements lean a bit towards steampunk, but still this is very much a fantasy world. Eberron is the kind of place I could really get into knowing more. The descriptions make me long to play the game, or better yet, to see if depicted in movies or video games. Incorporating autonomous sentient robots and airships powered by magic - yes, please, and keep it coming!

This was my first exposure to the world, so from the beginning it had me really glued to the story to learn what was happening in the world. It's clearly very different from other D&D such as Forgotten Realms while still paying strong homage to that series. But I like the development of the society and the focus on character development. I enjoyed reading about the main characters, and the plot kept me interested and eager to find out what was coming next. Still, though the story itself is pretty interesting, it's the unveiling of the world that really shines. In the book's second half the plot does lose some of its originality, but overall it was enjoyable right up to the end.

I'm currently listening to the Dreaming Dark series, which is even better than this. But, I do hope to return to finish this trilogy also in the future.

Ok book, distracting reading

The reader speaks well but is clearly not familiar with the source material. Frequent inconsistencies in pronunciation and general stumbling over things which are very familiar to fantasy readers in general and eberron readers in particular, combine to distract from the story significantly. Add in an offensively bad Irish accent and I struggled to keep listening.
Probably worth reading in print. Some good stuff for eberron fans.
