What disappointed you about One Wizard Place?
It is not often that i come across a narrator that I literally cannot listen to but this is one. Much as I admire someone with a speech impediment overcoming their problem and reading to an audience, it spoiled my listening experience beyond tolerance and i gave up listening.Also the sounds in the background is most irritating too.The storyline itself came across a bit disjointed like someone had tried to stitch several short stories together.
What will your next listen be?
Not anything narrated by this narrator :(
What didn’t you like about Katy Davies’s performance?

I bought this book for a road trip with my children (ages 10 and 12). I have to say it was great, the narrator's voice is charming and the story kept the kids completely interested the whole time. It was one of the easiest 6hr trips we've taken in a long time. Though the book is for young adults the parents will like it too. Really fast paced and generally fun to listen to. …Must buy for that long drive.

I loved this fast paced book - though it appeared as if it were a series of short stories strung together (one short story in itself, an interlude, a longer short story and then a novella) rather than a novel. Children and adults both will enjoy this tale of the two investigators from the Counter Curse division of the IEA. It is fantasy at its best with a talking dog, orgres, magic, elves and even a dragon.
Although it may be a bit violent for very young children, it is a good story for a long drive. I particularly enjoyed the vivid descriptions of the different types of transportation in this world. (Like all the best amusement park rides.)
The only thing that I didn't care for is the portrail of female characters. There were very few of them and they were typically silly and/or incompetent.
