Made me enjoy my long car rides even more. I loved the male reader. Very calming and mystical.

Great book from start to finish, with lots of action, developed characters, culture, and potential for future stories. I just downloaded Book #2 of this four-part story. Male narration was excellent. Female narration was excellent most of the time, but occasionally would read her part very slowly.
