Very enjoyable.

A nicely realised world, likeable heroes and a satisfactory resolution. I think you could listen to this novel without having heard the others in a series, but if you enjoy it it's good to know there's four more. This is one of the pleasures of Audible, when you find new writers without having seen their books elsewhere.
