Too complex for an audio book

I have greatly enjoyed other audio books by this author, but found the early part of this book far too complicated, with many characters and frequent switches in time with no cues for the listener to recognize which era we were in. It's a pity, because in the end is was a good story marred only by too much time spent detailing the rules and playing out of a secret society, Emor (=Rome backwards) that involved the main characters when young.
