The story is fantastic. The narration lacks affect except for generic nondescript foreign accents. I have listened to the other books in this series 2 or 3 times but I haven't been able to listen to this past a few chapters. Why they didn't stay with Eloise Oxer makes no sense to me.
"The Crow by Alison Croggan"
I enjoyed this book very much but was very disappointed that the narrator was not the same as the previous two books of Pellinor. I can see why a man was felt to be more suitable for this volume, but Colin Moody's voice is not an easy one to listen to. After enjoying Eloise Oxer's reading of the first two books of Pellinor, Colin Moody was a big disappointment!
