    Story
    "Fun and strange mashup of scifi and fantasy"
    What made the experience of listening to Forgotten Ages the most enjoyable?

    The story is fun. A mix between fantasy, scifi, and steampunk, it is an enjoyable ride that keeps one invested in the likable and down-to-earth main characters. Descriptions of different countries and peoples are well developed and vivid, you can really picture this world.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't really have a favorite character, they were all well-developed and sketched. You really did get a feel for each person in the book. Rias and Tikaya were a great couple. There was no use of miscommunication drama and not knowing if they liked each other. There was a base of mutual respect and admiration between the two that was refreshing and realistic.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This collection had two books and a novella, so there were a lot of scenes. I can't think of a favorite but they were all well described. I could see the snowy north and deserted town in book 1, and the tropical island in book two. You really felt enveloped in these worlds.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a couple of times but no extreme reactions. It was a great fun and breezy listen, made the commute enjoyable and kept my mind occupied with a fun world filled with many details and peoples. It was definitely an escape from the everyday and I would listen to it again.

    "Fun and different."

    This is a combination of magic, steam punk, adventure, and romance. It's a fun read and worth the wait time.

    Story
    "Love thy Enemies"
    What did you like best about Forgotten Ages? What did you like least?

    Rias. Probably because he was male. And the Sgt who SPOILER died way too soon.


    Would you recommend Forgotten Ages to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I'm still trying to figure out where the 2nd and 3rd books are. Either way, they're almost incomprehensible to me. The story just went wonky. I guess I like my fantasy a little more fantastical (sic).


    What aspect of Tavia Gilbert’s performance would you have changed?

    Almost all of it. The choice of voices were not really enjoyable. Too weak for the nature of the characters.


    Could you see Forgotten Ages being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Once again, I make the point. If you're going to make a heroine, please make her a HEROine. These weak women are annoying NOT heroic. Ugh. Simpering sops!

    Story
    "Didn't capture my attention at all"

    I forced myself to finish the first book, but it was tough. I wanted to quit many times. On the surface, it seems like it should have been interesting, but I just didn't care about the characters at all. There was no emotion. It was like someone detachedly relaying what happened. Too bad. Around 6 hours in, I started to care a little bit, but not much. I couldn't get myself to continue to the next book, even though it was included in the download for free. The narrator didn't help - most of the characters had the same voice, so it was hard to tell who was talking.

    "Enjoyable"

    This was a fun read. I really didn't know what to expect when I got this book. Sometimes it was just a little cookie cutter, but at other times it was quite novel, and had twists and turns i didn't expect. The narration was great. I've not read Lindsay Buroker, nor listened to Tavia Gilbert before, but will definately look out for them again.

    Story
    "A pleasure to finally listen to"

    I have owned all three of stories in this set since they were originally released and have loved them. I have read them multiple times and was thrilled to find out that Tavia Gilbert would narrate the stories.

    My only complaint and this might have been an issue with my download, I'm not sure but I swear the recording was spend up. Tavia sounded like she was speed reading through the text which was very off putting considering I've enjoyed Tavia on other series in the past. I slowed the play back to .75 and it sounded great then.

    I am eager to find out if Tavia will be doing the other books in this world by Buroker - I would really enjoy hearing others.

    "Entertaining"

    I really wasn't expecting this book to be any good but I really enjoyed it. The story was great and the action-adventure was non stop. There is even a bit of romance.

    It took a chapter or do to get used to the voice. Once the happened it was a perfect fit for the character and a good story.

I truly enjoyed the narrator as well. wasn't sure about it but was very impressed with how witty and fun the characters were and the story kept me listening even after i should have been in bed. well worth the money spent! I have already gotten another book by the same author can't wait to listen!!!
