I could have sworn I wrote this review ages ago. But I actually think I did write it, it went to preview and then I didn't hit send. Sigh, there's bee..Show More »n a few of those I've found lately. Sorry. I finished this book off ages ago, while I was on holiday...
Anyway, I really enjoyed the narration of this, the tale of the 7th son of a 7th son has been done a few times, but I thought that this was interesting enough and Ayden was a pretty young yet cool character. It was a good growing up and character orientated story. Yes, at times I wondered if this was a little young for me, but I was laughing and crying along with the characters in the end I'd forgotten it was aimed at a little younger than myself. I feel that any age can listen to this and be swept away in the journey that Ayden and his friends have to endure. (I think everyone can identify with a parent that wants to control you, but don't most kids then just rebel even more?)
It was magic, fun and a great adventure. I'd highly recommend it and what prompted me to find my review was I noticed the second book is out! I shall have to get my to be listened to list down a bit before I take on anymore though.
The narrator did a great job with this, I really fell into the trap that there were more than one person doing this and then thought hard about it, great performance, which really helped, especially through the fun and the harsher times. Some great twists in here, you won't expect, but I'm not going to spoil them for you.
And I'll defo be picking up the next one in the series. :)
