Issues with audio but it doesn't detract from the story. Excellent book and a mature fantasy book!

I have read many reviews for these books and the overarching theme was fantastic story but poor execution in the sense of editing and diction. I must say this is a heap of pretentious rubbish! As I listened to this book my mind ceased to hear the words, instead, I saw them. I often become lost in the majesty of Pfaff's world and became infatuated with the journey of the characters. There is a maturity in the content of this book that draws you in, providing a raw and visceral sense to the text which is an excellent exploration of the human condition. I would often be caught up in moral musings as I listened, not always agreeing with the moral position taken by the author. Having moments such as this with a text are rare, and are a testament to the author's ability to not only caress your mind with the fantastical but also to invigorate its core.

Paul J McSorley narration was a bit confronting at first as I struggled to related to his selected voice for a key character. However, this character does change very early in the first book, so was not a burden for long. My final view of McSorely's narration is a positive one as it neither improves or reduces the text itself; achieving little in the narration is a positive as many narrators are utterly hopeless.

I wholehearted recommend this book to those who think they will just read one chapter more before bed... then realizing it is 3am. A sublime book of many ideas and emotions wrapped is an excellent fantasy world.
