starts at chapter 28, skips to chapter 1, then to chapter 42. re edit this please, it makes it so hard to keep track, and your chapters never match up with the sections. lazy audible, lazy.

I found it hard to listen to, not because of the narrator but because there was little to no in depth to the plot. it was just a little too straight forward and predictable. great idea for a story, but I just didn't like the lackluster detail and intrigue it was capable of.

The series is awesome and I am loving the familiar characters that you get to meet again as the book goes on.

But, the performance is terrible. The male narrator has a very grating voice and makes everyone seem like they are 2 drinks away from hammered. The female narrator was the only saving grace of the performance, and was great at keeping each characters voice. But every time the male voice came, it was REALLY disappointing.

The only reason I continued listening was to get my credits worth.

Should have bought the book
