Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No - Mainly due to the narrator, he is just awful for this sort of novel and genre, unfortunately completely destroyed my immersion

Would you recommend Dark Moon to your friends? Why or why not?

No - Mainly due to the narrator, he is just awful for this sort of novel and genre, unfortunately completely destroyed my immersion. The story starts our great, one of my favourite characters is the main antagonist so I was determined to stick to it but the story loses steam about the mid way through and becomes a bit of a chore to finish. It just slows down significantly with several small subplots forming which feel a bit more like filler then substance and take away from the most exciting part of the story which is the main antagonist. it is enjoyable but not his best work by far. As a huge Gemmell fan who has read all of his books multiple times, i would say this is one of his more weaker novels, even if the concepts are great.

What didn’t you like about Homer Todiwala’s performance?

the narrator just does not have the range of tones for the role and his choice of voices and tones just does not work for the feel of the story IMOP. i found the tone distracting at best, although i did just finish listening to Morningstar by Gemmell and that reader was AMAZINGLY GOOD.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

YES

Any additional comments?

If you love the drenai series then i recommend you read the book and skip the audible version personally, i enjoyed reading it much more than i have listening to it.

Greatest among the Greats!

the narrators voice was very good for me. his pauses and ability to use different tones gave me new insight to just how talented the author is, great book!
