Another extention to the existing shadowhunter universe, this book series follows the adventures children of our heroes from "the infernal devices" series.
I really loved it and can't wait for the next one!

The narrator was good and was easy to listen to, except for her voice for Will Herondale. She gave him a full on welsh accent.
There is a scene with Tessa where the narrator explicitly says he got a slight lilting welsh accent when he was exhausted, so I don't see why the narrator would always do it when he speaks.

Meh....

The story is cut into three parts. Each written by a different author, read by different people and from the point of view of different characters from the same story.

It started off strong, but the story failed to create a bond between me and the main characters. It had a lot of potential, but I felt like the story didn't really develop. Most things happened before we meet the characters and we witness them coming together.

Struggled to finish it, but it was worth it for the last chapter.

Favorite story!

I have loved the inkheart story from when i was young and its still one of my favorite stories!

The narration is great. Clear and easily understandable.

The only thing that almost made me throw my phone across the room was the terrible, really quite loud and annoying music at the end of each chapter!! Who in the worls thought that was a good idea?! It rips you out of the story and lasts for about 3-6 minutes. I wish theyd cut those parts out.

Great story, good narration

I have read the books in the past and i love the story! The narration is mostly pleasant, except the voice he does for the dragon, Saphira. That annoyed the hell out of me!

Amazing insight into the film industry!

I didn't realise how much I like Bryan Cranston before listening to this! His story is amazing, well written and really well read/told! His voice is pleasant and its easy to follow.

I love how insightful it is, both into the film industry and Bryan Cranstons thoughts and feelings.

i love books read by the author and this one was great! Sean Astin has a very good reading voice and it felt more like he was telling his story than reading it.

i loved the tid bits about the Lord of the Rings production and New Zealand.

Easy listen.

Loved it!

I didn't expect anything from this book, but it turned out to be great!!

Erin Watt's storyline is wonderfully constructed.(eventhough its simple and in the beginning both characters weren't as likable or in-depth as I wouldve wished for).

What really made me love it was the narration! Caitlyn Kelly and Teddy Hamilton really brought the story to life! The contrast between the voices was refreshing! Caitlyn Kelly's voice is light and full of nuances, whereas Teddy Hamilton's voice is deeper, calm and easy to listen to.

Just okay (disappointed)

I had heard a lot of good things about this book, but found it a little disappointing.
The idea behind the story is great! Unfortunately it seems to drag on and on, without much happening for the first half of the book.

It is split into three parts. "Good days", "Bad days", and "Better days".
The good days are mostly boring and I had to force myself to continue.
The bad days came as a rather confusing twist that made me feel like a chapter had been missed.
The last part of the book has one huge plot twist that made up for a lot of the rest.

The narrator was okay. I haven't listened to any other books she narrated and I guess this one is not the posterchild for a narrator. The main characters point of view storyline didn't leave much room for the narration to be 'exiting' as such.

All in all - this book is okay...

Good, but not as good as I had hoped.

The story itself was great, but I think it could have gone a bit more in-depth. Something was just sort of missing for me personally.
Halfway through Lyra's story the point of view changes to Gemma's point of view and it goes back to before they met, including the bits we already heard/read.
It really confused me and I struggled to get fully into Gemma's story for a while.

The narrator's voices are great though!

Great end to a series!

I really enjoyed all narrators (there is one for each point of view).
The story itself was interesting and I think this book was the perfect ending to a great series of books.
