    The only real complaint I have about this book is that when you pause it, it will often skip ahead several minutes, so I'm always having to find my place. This has been a problem with a few books though, not just this one. Very annoying.

    I read this series years ago, so I thought I'd pick up where I left off...i think I remember why I just stopped reading this book. Author has created far too many characters of significance, I can barely remember who they are, much less get into their story arc. Furthermore, the characters are all pretty one dimensional and plot advancement seems to work like a video game - beat the next bad guy, obtain the next magic item. There is better fantasy out there. narrator's voice is pleasant.

    It was a good book, had to pay close attention to keep up with everything going on. Great narrators. They did a good job.

    I have been hesitant about listening to audio books in the past, but listening to Winter's Heart changed my mind! I listened to it while driving 90 minutes to and from work each day. Truly made the commute go by quick. I enjoyed Winter's Heart as well! I am most of the way through the series and this read was well worth it.
