Overall solid storytelling as always. However, the habit of ending every single chapter with a minor cliffhanger grew tiresome.
The voice performance felt overbearing and unnecessary. Dramatic accents seemed not to fit the tone, creating cartoonish characters (Tinkerer and the Electress, for example). Accents seemed to have no correlation either, as when three people from the same city in the beginning of the book had 3 wildly different accents. Also, changing the pronunciations of names and words from the first book was confusing.
The experience was still enjoyable, although minor issues with the performance may incite some small frustrations in other pedants like myself.
