...to an awesome series. While slow in a few places, and a tad disjointed every now and then, this has been a magical story of good vs evil.

I love the story and adored the characters. Derek's narration was constant and entertaining. A huge task for nearly 80 hours of story telling

Awesome Narration - Good, Solid, Story

What did you like most about The Cycle of Arawn?

High fantasy setting with huge adventures and completely ridiculous levels of individual ability. Just what you expect from this genre. 60+ hours of escapism.

If you’ve listened to books by Edward W. Robertson before, how does this one compare?

I haven't read any of his books before.

What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Tim's voice acting is great. I've listened to a few books narrated by him now. His accent is great for the men of fantasy and his ability to seamlessly shift between the voices is great. How he remembers what voice he used for re-appearing characters is beyond me.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A bit of both. Due to the genre you always expect key characters may die; though secretly know they'll probably make it back. There were heaps of funny moments where I laughed out loud.

Any additional comments?

The two main characters are often a little too juvenile and annoying. While I appreciate it's also part of the reason I liked the story, I think they could have been a little more serious at times; to better reflect the seriousness of their situations.

A slow start that quickly turned into the creation of some great characters and a world of depth. I can't wait for the next part of the journey.
