Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes it was but not because of the narration but because of the story.
What other book might you compare Honored Vow to and why?
Trusted Bond that Honored Vow's narration was only slightly better but still have the same problems of not much diversity in the voices, so it was easy to mix up who was saying what and what was being narrated if you haven't read the book. Also in every single chapter start the name of the book was mentioned like there was a chance of the listener ever forgetting it so it bear repeating. The thing that made it better than Trusted Bond's narration was the fact that we didn't had to hurry along to follow what was going on, this narration was better paced.
One of the bad things was the name Yusuke -and who knows what other name- was read wrongly. It's Yu-su-ke not Yu-suk! That almost had me going back to the book and checking to see if I remember correctly that the tribe of Reshep was from Japan and not another country!
The other book I will compare it too is Change of Heart that Sean Crisden's still remains the best of all.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Really the narrator did detract from the book. His narration was just not rich enough. Not much feeling or diversity in the voices, as mentioned before, can lead to confusion to someone that isn't familiar with the book.
And the fact that the terminology and names were read wrongly isn't warming up to it.
Do you think Honored Vow needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Honowred Vow has a follow up book, Crucible of Fate and I'd love to see that one being turned to audiobook, even though Trusted Bond's and Honored Vow's narrations weren't as good as Change of Heart's was.
Any additional comments?
If Crucible of Fate is turned to audiobook can it be narrated by Sean Crisden?

Would you listen to Honored Vow again? Why?
Yes! I already have listened and read Honored Vow multiple times because the story is wonderful.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I always adore Jin and Logan, they are such a great pairing and they are always fun and exciting to read about.
Domin Thorne is getting better with each story and I hope audible will have the next book 'Crucible..." on audio soon, I have already read the book half a dozen times.
Crane is such a sweetheart and I love him.
Which character – as performed by Jeff Gelder – was your favorite?
I haven't a favourite performance, Jeff does an excellent job.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Logan calls to Crane in Cranes' room, after Jin makes him shift back to human, that scene with Logan and Crane is so touching. The bond between the Semel and his people is shown in such a simple and moving way in this scene.
Any additional comments?
Just hope Mary Calmes and Audible continue to work together and create more of the Change of Heart series.
