Publisher's Summary

A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the CradleLand, the birthplace of the still-young world. All that stands in the Power's way is one troublesome line of humans: descendants of Seth. They are of the only remaining clan clinging to an all-but-dead faith. And yet it's from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion: A promise, spoken from the heart of Eden, warning of a human son yet to come - a man who would strike back with a crushing blow.

The darkness is determined to stop that from happening. This redeemer must be born a human, so an incredible scheme is launched to prevent the prophecy from coming to pass. First, pollute the human bloodline; and second...kill the only one who could be humanity's deliverance.

This is the first audiobook in the Cradleland Series.

Critic Reviews

"Michael Taylor is an enthusiastic and spirited storyteller. He draws on a seemingly limitless store of voices for the many characters." ( AudioFile)

Great story, buy the book instead.

If you. like. the way. I punctuate. you will. love the. narration.
Michael Taylor is a terrible narrator. I literally would get a pressure headache with the way he reads the story. He was four voices: Deep and slow, pausing between EVERY word; His normal voice which would do fine reading a newspaper; a high-pitched, whiney voice, like that of an old miner from '49 gold rush; and a Minnesota grandma voice (don'cha knoo). His voice is an injustice to an audible subscriber and to this book. I feel ripped-off.

The Story is Worth Enduring the Horrible Narration

Any additional comments?

I almost didn't purchase this book because of the poor reviews on the narration, but I noticed that there was a different narrator for the other books in the series and I thought the content looked interesting. I am glad I did purchase it.The narration was truly horrible, easily the worse that I've heard on Audible, but by the end of the first half of the download I had grown somewhat numb to it. The story itself was really good. I liked the way the author set real, believable characters in a plausible representation of the pre-flood world. I found the read thought provoking and enjoyable. I guess you could buy the book and bypass the narration, but either way, it was worth the purchase price.

Couldn't tolerate the narration

What disappointed you about Flight to Eden?

The narration is AWFUL. I did read the other reviews before I purchased this book; I just thought that people were being too picky and critical. Nope. It is just threat bad. Imagine listening to a brain damaged William Shatner reading a book out loud for the first time - not the first time out loud, the first time EVER... for 16 HOURS. I made it through 20 minutes and quit. SERIOUSLY.

Wow, this was unexpected.

I ran across this story by accident, but I really, really enjoyed this story. I can't wait until my boys are bigger so I can read it to them. It took while to get used to the narrator - too many pregnant pauses. But I still had a good time listening to this.

Good story. Narration lacked fluidity.

The story added normalcy and interesting imagery to a biblical time shrouded in mystery. I warmed up to the characters after the first few chapters. Worth reading.

Narration

Great story, terrible narration. Seriously, buy the book. If I was the author I would be very displeased with the performance.
