The story was as spellbinding to me as the last two, but to not have Brendan Fraser as the narrator was a major disappointment!!! I'm sure Mr. Corduner is good with other works, but he didn't even TRY to match the voices Brendan had established in the previous books. The Black Prince had a high wimpy voice, Fenolio was suddenly changed from New Yorker-ish to Russian, Orpheus went from Southern to British, Roxanne and Brianna went from French to the same general part of the world as Fenolio! Very frustrating. It even made me hate hearing Meggie after a while; she was so whiny and nasally. On the plus side, he did well with Eleanor; she was annoyingly whiny and nasally already! Sigh. Please get Brendan back for any more or at least someone similar!

im a 39 year old male with 2 children ages 7 and 12 Who is used to books by Stephan King and Dean Koontz but was blown away with this series! It is a GREAT series just simply a great series! I have no problem with My 12 year old reading it but My 7 year old is too young for some of the things that happen in the story, but dont get Me wrong it is not tacky but the part's in question talks a little about a bad king and His Love of torture! But all in all I approve. Note: the book's only bad language in the series is the aunt says d@m* a few times and I think maybe the word sometimes used for butt was used once! Again it is a Great book series, but start with the first book!
