Summary

When 15-year-old Beck Phillips travels by train to the secluded village of Kingsplot to live with his wealthy but estranged uncle, Beck discovers some dark family secrets. A buried basement, a forbidden wall, an old book of family history with odd references to...dragons? Beck's life is about to be changed forever in this suspenseful tale about the destructive nature of greed and the courage to make things right.

Pillage is filled with Mr. Skye's signature humor as well as some very intense moments, including a surprise ending, that will keep listeners young and old engrossed and entertained.

The narrators voice is off putting

Okay so like, the narrator has a pretty normal voice and at times is good for specific characters. That being said, every time he does the voice of the main character or most of the adults he sounds like a ghoul telling a campfire story. Not gonna lie, at points his voice took me out of the magic of the book. The immersion breaking tone of his voice sounds analogous to something you’d hear in a chilling tales for dark nights story.

Great story held back by narration.

Thoroughly enjoyed the story. I decided to give this one a try at finishing Wizard for Hire. Obert Skye is a talented author who creates intriguing characters. The narrator for this one has an odd cadence to his reading. It took awhile for me to get passed the narration and sink into the world being created.

In the end I still really enjoyed the story. I will try another story from this narrator and see how things go.

An excellent listen and a good book for the kids

This is a book I started reading in high school and put down. I just recently rediscovered it and got it on Audible and just listened to it in its entirety and it is just as enjoyable now as it was when I was in high school.
