Continuing story..........with the wrong narrator

I thoroughly enjoyed the first novel in this series Loyalty - narrated by Matthew Lewis. Unfortunately this is a poor second cousin to it. The story rolls along in a very similar vein to the original but I am not sure if it is just the book being not as good or it is the narrator that spoils it for me. This is the best argument for not (if you can help it) changing narrator within a series of books.

There are some interesting historical theories regarding the aftermath of the Wars of the Roses but the telling of the story - or the reading of it - made it sound more like a children's book read by a teenager to me. There was little gravitas to the voice which I felt the story needed. Still, like most things, it's all a matter of taste; some may love it!
