I’ve been putting this one off for a while. I’ve grown to hate SciFi over the last 4 1/2 months of reviewing and this was a long one. Thankfully I was able to get into it pretty quickly.

The world is intriguing, leading to me wanting to know more. The stories are incredibly descriptive and fleshed out. While I did feel like I was missing some context, such as the year(s) this takes place. It’s mentioned occasionally but without context, I have no basis. The same goes for the repeated mention of “cycles”. Out of context, I have no idea how long that is. Based on the way characters talk, at times it sounds like it could be months, years, decades, or centuries.

I try not to get into too many series because it’s not easy on the wallet. But this is one I think I’ll be returning to at some point. While I wouldn’t say any of the characters are particularly compelling it’s the world-building and lore that interests me.

Normally I can’t stand when authors narrate their own work. They’re usually dull and listless. This was one of the best narrations I’ve heard in a while. The author does a terrific job narrating, doing voices and accents. While he does mispronounce the word envelope, something I find incredibly annoying. Onvelope isn’t a word. The rest of the book was a joy to listen to. I can think of 8 stories I’ve reviewed where the author did the narration and this is the only one I like.
