Don't even waste 2$ on the audio version.

Would you try another book from Charlie N. Holmberg and/or Amy McFadden?

I love these books but the audio version was terrible! I turned it off and went back to reading . Narrator was too fast and grating voice, accents were laughable, and her character narrations seem to change personality.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The butler! I can just see him cleaning.

What three words best describe Amy McFadden’s voice?

fast, nonconvincing, grating

Could you see The Glass Magician being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

yes hmmmm good question on the stars.

Any additional comments?

Stopped the audible version before it ruined the book for me - and I love the book series.

Well into her apprenticeship with Emery Thane, 20-year-old Ceony Twill is still studying folding magic. She has, however, been harboring the secret that she can also wield other magics as well. Although she has told no one of her secret, two men from her and Emery’s past are convinced that she knows the secret behind wielding multiple magics. Vowed to stop at nothing to get the secret from her, Ceony knows she must discover the true limits to her powers before it’s too late. Will she succed? Will Emery figure out her secret?

Narrator, Amy McFadden does a great job of bringing to life Ceony's world. Her unique voices provide the listener with a unique, versatile narrative style. The plot is well developed, engaging, and keeps a fairly fast pace despite its historical setting. The characters are likable and humorous. The dynamics between them are enjoyable and McFadden easily navigates their dialogue. Readers who like to get to know the characters well will appreciate the mix of action adventure with the more serious matters of the heart. It does feel off for the time period, however, for Ceony to be so gung-ho about trying to solve her own problems without Emery’s help. Also, some of the battles with Grath and Sarag drag on a bit, but the humor and action mixed in make up for it. Recommended for those readers who like an action-packed, historical fantasy adventure.
