Oh my god....is that the time?
This is the second of his Novella complilations that I have listened to and I think the format is great. Nice neat stories, filling in the gaps in the novels.
They are typically well written and give some life to the myths of Tamas and Taniel.
I was not as keen on the narrator as with the narrator of the novels(the name escapes me) which was disappointing as I didn't think the novel narrator was particulrly good either.
These books deserve a Rupert Degas or Colin Mace for my money as they are really good
"Great prequels, horrible narrator "
Great supplementary tales for anyone who enjoys the powdermage series. However, the narration was often cringeworthy.
Bring back Rodska.
"good backs story, poor narration"
I can't tell if the writing was subpart from the Powder Mage trilogy, or if the narrator just cannot compete with Christian Rodska outstanding performance.
Play it on 1.25x, Julie Hoverson reads slow but does a good job otherwise. I wish names were pronounced the same as in the main trilogy but perhaps this is more aligned with the author since he's more involved here. These novellas as individual works are slightly better than any of the trilogy books. The setting is better than most and I hope Mr. McClellan continues writing within it.
Missing a lot of the weight of the series but the knowledge of the future will do that. Still amazing and worth reading if you are a fan of the powder mage trilogy.
