- Gates of Eden Literary Universe, Series 4
Book 3 and book 4 in this series are both rather short (audiobook-wise). 3/4 of the story is essentially just business being taken care of. I wouldn’t call it boring, but I wouldn’t call it exciting either. It’s just needed setup. I brought up book 4 because I think it would have been better if they had been a single book.
The final fourth of the book more than makes up for it in my opinion. Though I’m also biased. I already really, really, really enjoy this literary universe, and Mercy Brown is pretty much tied with Nicky as my flavorite character in it.
One thing about this audiobook that truly shines is the narration. At one point, the narrator was doing male voices and effects and I genuinely forgot that the narrator was female. Most female narrators are lacking in the male-voice department, but I don’t hold it against them. This is a rare case of the opposite of that. The narration overall is excellent though.
