Love this novel, hate the narrator.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of J. P. Linton?
Anyone. Absolutely anyone. Mr. Linton sounds like he's reading the dullest of textbooks, emotionless to the point where I returned the novel after listening less than 30 minutes.
Any additional comments?
As I stated above, I returned this book. I'm in the middle of reading a borrowed physical copy, and wanted the audiobook for my own library. How every disappointing for my first Audible book. :(

great story! lots of political intrigue.
the story was very well told, a lot of relationships, political Intrigue and tests of loyalty.
The style reminded me a bit of Game of Thrones, although not quite as descriptive as GRR Martin.
a lot of great information about life and times in cormyr.
as far as performance: the audio was not processed correctly. The mid tones were turned down leaving the bass and treble High. A lot of sibilance, requires de-essing. needed expansion on the quiet Parts. When the narrator whispered, you had to turn it almost all the way up, then he would boom his voice hurting your ears. I can't stand that!
