First, I'm aghast at the vehemence and lashing out of reviewers toward the narrators (in the .com reviews). Sure the multiple POV was a change I had to get used too from the first trilogy, but its the performers voices, skill, and talent that made the transition so easy. I barely noticed they swapped a few of the narrators (it being several months since listening to Iron Gold) I found myself excited each time the POV switched simply to hear the voices of the characters. I get it comes down to personal opinion and I'm no voice coach, but I've listened to my fare share of painful audiobooks (looking at you Foundation and Earth), so if I had to guess the anger comes from stubborn fans stuck in the nostalgic days of the institute. Eh, c'est la vie.

That said, wow does Dark mean dark. Sometimes after a listening session I had to take a moment to myself to process what I just heard. I loved it. The book has well paced movement of plot, the flat characters we've come to love or hate played their rolls cleverly, the round characters rotated and translated in intriguing ways, surprise and shock, laugher and tears. It's all there. Wonderful writing, and wonderful performance. Thank you everyone involved, looking forward to the next one.
