Good story

Good story, but French accents? Couldn’t get passed it. Hopefully they, or she redoes it without them.

slow start, strong finish

it felt like a DnD quest all the way through. Glad the ending kind of gave some finality and new light on the story from the last book these two were in. Ended on a cliffhanger but i guess thats what multipart stories do.

voice acting was ok, no erik singer but my ears adjusted as it went on. the pacing was off, gotta give the listener a moment to realize that the scene changed. early on it took me awhile to realize as such when i was still trying to gather a visual.

to be honest, a lot was left unexplained. i wont go any further than that to avoid spoilers, but it felt more like it ended mid novel.

Awful Accents

Where in the novel does it suggest these awful accents for the characters? Further the accents sounded strained and fake. Please just read the novel

not what I was expecting.

The story isn't bad. Their are a number of glaring issues that I constantly criticized throughout the story, knowing forgotten realms as I do. But the story itself isn't bad at all. The narrator on the other hand.... French accent, really... she would be more suited to mystery books I think.

do they have a summary?

I like a lot of the characters. they do some cool things. the narration is awful. the book gets muddled up in senseless what if thinking by the characters. also the whole thing is not really plausible by what I know of angels in d and d. they would smoke that demon and there wouldn't be a story. I had a bad experience with this one.

sigh

didn't care for the performance the accents she placed on the characters seemed out of place. liked the story very much.
