Whilst I adore this story and its premise the narration often makes me cringe. The heroine sounds like a Disney Princess and Ky and Cassia's father sound monotone in moments that should contain emotion. I suppose this is to create greater variety in the voices but it doesn't work. Also they added music in some emotional parts that just made it so cheesy removing the sincerity present in the book. Overall i think this is better to read than to listen to. If you do choose to listen to it though, try to listen past the narration to the sentiment of the book.

This is the best narration I've ever heard. Stephen Fry and Harry Potter are unbelievable together - the world comes to life in your mind and reminds me of when I read these books as a child. I cannot rave about this audio book enough.
