Akin to Brandon Sanderson's creative magic systems and Wurts and Feist's Daughter of the Empire trilogy. Can't wait for the next one.

Great voice. Love the personality Andrews brings to the characters, especially the narrator.
Unique story, classic Sanderson, if a little flatter than his previous works (Looking at you, Mistborn series). At least Andrews' vocal stylings help bring a bit of life to the party.
Sanderson asks and answers the question "what if ALL the superheroes were supervillains?" in an action-packed dystopian steampunk sci-fi novel narrated in the first person by a quirky and amusing MC.

Lovable characters but difficult plot.

I have really enjoyed these books, although Sanderson does a great job of making you fall in love with characters so that you'll be really upset when things go badly for them!
Excellent adventure, with mystery and intrigue.
So creative.
I enjoyed the performance, although towards the end I noticed when the narrator said "he" instead of "she" or "him" instead of "her". That was a little frustrating, but overall the voices and dramatic presentation was entertaining.

a bit all over the place

Jumps around from "present" to "past" with little clarity except the change from 1P pronoun to 3P name of the character... might be easier to follow visually and isn't so much suited to an audio book. didn't love the narrator's voices, they were too similar in parts and I didn't know who was talking or if it was narration.
Still an enjoyable little story about some of Durzo's past... could have been a whole novel though, felt it was cramped and cut short in the end.

Love Patrick Rothfuss, this is an excellent book, but you probably know that, because it follows an excellent first volume in the series.
This narration includes a slightly irritating voice for one of the characters, however, this character is minor and not throughout the book, thankfully.
Otherwise Rupert Degas has an excellent story telling voice, narration style, and manner of voicing characters. He also incorporates laughter and gasps (etc.) and singing in a seamless radio-play style of narration.

I liked having an Australian narrator for this Australian memoir. sometimes the voices were shrill and irritating but that's probably good for capturing how those characters did talk :P
really enjoyed the story and I thought it was very well presented.
