the narrate is just as frustrating as ever with his terrible fake accent, although it's less jarring 2 books in. I don't see why he changed his voice for Burridge compared to the first, nor why he changed it for Fitz from boy to man mid way through a chapter

good story, awful narrator

I really enjoyed the story but it took a while to get into and even then was still difficulty to listen to at times. This is because of the narrator's awful attempt at a British accent, I assume his only reference was Stewie Griffin from family guy given the exaggerated use of the letter H e.g. whine instead of wine. It might not be so bad if it was consistent, he is putting on British accent but still pronounces many words like an American like saying adult as A-Dult instead of Ad-Ult which is very distracting.
because of the story I'll carry on to the next, but I really wish they'd chosen someone else

good follow up book but narrator is horrific

If you enjoyed wizards first rule then you'll enjoy this follow up story in the series.
But seriously consider reading the story instead of listening to it.
There's a change of narrator, this is a bit jarring at first but ordinarily you could get used to it after a chapter or too (Dune changes narrator frequently and it's fine after a while). This narrator however is beyond terrible. He had a horrific, wooden voice and doesn't seem to have learnt how sentences are spoken. He pauses all over the place and never reads a sentence in full, his tones of voice used to represent certain characters are extremely off puting and don't seem to match the characters (Zed is particularly bad, Darken Rahl also ridiculous).
Thankfully they seem to have a new narrator for book 3.
