Narrated as though to a child.

Id previously read this series a few years ago and was looking forward to revisiting the story through audiobook. I struggled to get through it, the narrator was seriously overexaggerating the voices, it was how i would read to a child, that and the english accents really deterred me from finishing. I see the next book has a different narrator so I will still give it a go.

One of my favourite books but needs new narration

This book is one of my all time favourites! The story of this series is amazing and I will forever be re reading them. Normally I would give it 5 stars but unfortunately I could just not get into the narrator it sounded like she had something in her mouth the whole time and it ruined the story for me which is sad. Bottom line highly recommend reading this book but not listening to it.

Magically ensnaring story

The book captured me within the first chapter and kept me reeled in for hours on end. i finished the book with a day and a half.

Unbelievably bad accents from the narrator.

Firstly I'll say I love the Infernal Devices (and all the Shadowhunter stories) and have read them as Kindle books. This time I thought I'd try the audio. The only reason I haven't returned this one is that I've checked ahead and the next two books have different narrators. According to Wikipedia this narrator, while born in the US, has a British mother, but I can hardly believe it. Her British accents are truly terrible. Henry is made so plummy sounding as to be a complete parody of a Victoria gentleman, and don't even get me started on Mortmain. I'm assuming she's attempting some kind of Yorkshire accent, although it veers from vague Yorkshire to sometime Scottish to just plain odd. Honestly, for a book where the majority of the characters are English, more effort could have been made to find a suitable narrator. While I recommend this story, I do not recommend this recording.

Good book

The story was good as it takes you back in time to shadow hunters of the past. But I was disappointed with the person reading the book as a lot of the voices sometimes sounded the same which made it a bit distracting

Great story - dreadful narrator- disappointing

For shadowhunter fans this pre-story clips along but the reader is dismal : all the voices are minimally different to each other and the pace drags. Reading it yourself would be worth the extra effort. A great shame and redoing the audio books for this whole set with a single good narrator would be worth the investment.

Captured from the very beginning

I really enjoyed this book and I'm about to start book two. The story and characters were very interesting to me and I enjoyed the subtle nods to "The Mortal Instruments ". Unlike some other reviews of this book,I really enjoyed the narrators style and interpretation of the story as a whole.

Great story. The reader wasn't 100% great, but she made me get lost in the story
