Publisher's Summary

Lymond is travelling a desperate path across the Ottoman Empire of Sulemain the Magnificent in search of a kidnapped child, a search that may place him in the grip of his enemies. In the subtle and savage game of treachery, enslavement and torture, Lymond is compelled to make an unthinkable choice - and face the darkest ambiguities of his own nature.

Enjoyment ruined by narration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I am currently listening to this audio book and can't decide whether to return it or not.

It's not a problem with the story. The story is fantastic. I've read the books a dozen times and they are among my very favourites.

Unfortunately this audio book is ruined by the narrator mispronouncing the main character's name. What makes it worse and inexplicable is I have just listened to 2 other books from the Lymond series (QP and TDK), read by the same narrator, where he pronounces mc's name correctly. As the name Lymond is used all the time, sometimes seconds, apart the mispronunciation is a repetitive and annoying disruption to a very powerful and emotional story. I don't understand how a series of books has been released with this sort of error.
