Good value for money but a bit teen fantasy

I struggled to really get involved with the story and managed to get 60+ hrs through before doing this review. Unfortunately for my tastes the books puts too much emphasis on love interests of the protagonists and not enough on the actual storyline, this resulted in increasing frustration for me.

I flipped between this and other fantasy audio books from other authors. For me this demonstrated that I wasn't engaged with the story. If you need to kill 90+ hrs you could do worse....... Unfortunately for the author you can also do better.

This box set is not for me.

I picked this up due to the length of the box set. The preview of it didn't go into the story at all, and there was no reviews to go off of. So aside from the description, I was going into this blind, and it seemed interesting.

I am a few hours into the story, I tried, I really tried. Being this length I can accept some lower level of story telling, but this I just couldn't take. Not to say it was bad, but to me it was bad. A handful of chapters in, there has been multiple sex scenes, and I've heard of probably a dozen relationships, or insinuating that someone should have sex with another person, usually just met.

If this is your type of story, then give it a shot. It hasn't gotten off to the "sword & spell" type of story for the category I found it in.

wow...

I listened to the first 4 of these when they came out individually. Now that I’ve heard 5 and 6 I just want more.

Unbelievable

Once I started listening there was no way to stop. Absolutely fascinating. The narrator made the story easy to understand.

Could not hold my attention.

I returned it. I tried to get into it but it could not hold my attention. I made it through book 1 and still not into it.

Mary Sue does poor D&D

After a couple of chapters any pretense that this is anything but a poor D&D campaign masquerading as fiction goes out of the window. There are no lasting consequences of any significance to the protagonist except to make her yet more superlative. Her repetitive agonising on her love life serves to justify her shagging or not shagging whoever she's in bed with. At times you can hear the DM's exposition, and I have to wonder if the protagonist is their spouse and the other poor sods in the party (yup, that's what it gets called) gave no alternative but to endure this nonsense.

If I didn't desperately need cheap distraction from tragedy at the moment, there is no way I'd have endured this garbage.

Kudos to Chelsea Stephens for reading 90 hours of this crap as if it had any substance.

A Zoological Adventure Fantasy

Honestly I bought this book because It was 90hrs for 1 credit and the plot seemed interesting enough to give it a go. It was very much worth it. The story is quite different from most others I have read. The vast species of characters (which I think have a basis in creatures from D&D) add a great deal to the world. I also loved how you learn about the world's sling with the main character, you don't feel like you are missing some secret they already know...if anything, sometimes you want to shout at her as she takes a page too long to understand something lol.

There are twists, turns, live and death in abundance. I will definitely be grabbing the next books in the series when they are available. Hopefully they keep the same narrator. Whilst she isn't a full-on voice actor like some, she does embody the different species and bring them to life. I really enjoyed how she brought the characters tone and personality.

90 hours well spent.

90 hours of an expertly performed epic story, with great characters that you'll love to hear grow.

Fantatic performance of an amazing story!

I loved this collection of books pretty much from the first minute! If you, like me, enjoy epic fantasy with a fantatical and well thought out world and compelling characters, this is for you!

The only issue I have with it, is that the 7th book isn't on Audible yet!
I've binged the 6 audiobooks in this collection, totalling just over 90 hours, and it hasn't been enough! :D I can't wait for book 7! :)

90 hours for 1 credit is excellent value for money

Fantastic new perspective in the swords and sorcery genre. Mostly non-human characters, with racial intrigue, disease and prophesy. That all sounds like a winning combo right?

Well, and I'm super critical here, the author shied away from making the phycological aspects effect the characters more, after a cry they just sort of got over it stoically. I thought there could be more depth to the characters themselves and I don't know what colour most of the characters were or what exactly they looked like, I would have liked to have more description.

But I'm being quite harsh, overall a good 90 hours, enjoyable but not amazing.
