Publisher's Summary

Tarod alone knew the nature of the supernatural force locked within his soul - and he knew that it must be thwarted, no matter what the sacrifice. Denounced by his fellow adepts as a demon, betrayed even by those he loved, he had unleashed a power that twisted the fabric of time, to put himself beyond the reach of that monstrous force and avert the pandemonium that threatened the world. He thought that nothing could break through the barrier he had created. He was wrong....

I loved these as novels, but...

I don't know if I would have listened to the audio books if I hadn't already loved this trilogy. I first read them as a teenager and as an adult it's still a fantastic and original story.
But the audio books...personally, i dont think the lady reading is the right narrator. Its a story about young 20-something year olds. But the narrator reads it like my grandma would and sometimes just sounds plain bored.
Also did anyone who produce it actually listen to it? There are so many editing errors...eg where she has started a sentence, then decided to re-read with different infections.
Please please re-record and put a little effort in, this story deserves it!

Order Inflexible

Continuing the theme of Order being inflexible, Tarod finds his desire to combat Chaos continually blocked by the followers of Order.

The novel starts ok but quickly slows down in the middle. Stay with the story as it picks up after the midpoint.

The narrator does better in this book but still has a number of pauses and mistakes. More emotion is used in the narration but mostly monotone and lacks distinct characters. The audio is unedited / poorly edited as a number of mistakes remain in the feed. Like the previous book there is some static but either it was less often or I got used to it and it bothered me less.

Mediocre narrator - great story

As with the first book in this series, I loved the story, but wished the narrator had bothered to do a better job pronouncing words and names and that the editor had caught the occasional gaffe and helped her fix it. Still, I mostly enjoyed this edition.
