This is not the fault of the narrator - I am not sure whether she read two different versions and someone did a bad blend, or she was given a mixed script - but the first 1/3 of the book is the UK translation (meters, kilograms) and the other 2/3 the American English is was written in (feet, pounds). For someone who has read the book several times, I found this very annoying.
I also agree with the previous reviewer that some of the voices (particularly Owen's) were just a little off. However, I thought that Berdadette Dunne did a great job with the other 3 books in this series.
Of the four, this is my least favorite listen. (Squire is my favorite).
Plotwise, the book is excellent, spanning Kel's second through fourth years as a page. She makes new animal friends and new human friends and enemies as she gets ready for her final trial as a page, with (of course) lots of tests and tribulations, especially at the end. The development of Kel's new maid is particularly interesting to watch.

just a few pronunciation errors (IMO) of some of the names. There's only so much differentiation that can be done with voices and that's done pretty decently. I'll probably relisten when I start to miss tamora pierce's writing again lol.
