Would you listen to Warden of Time: The After Cilmeri Series Book 8 again? Why?
Of course. It's very well narrated, an excellent story overall, and I like having books I've enjoyed reading on audio so I can listen at work.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I don't really have a favorite character. I realize that they do seem to be centered on one main character per story (or two), but I love them all. The world itself is so intricately detailed that while you might hate the villains, I find it difficult to pick just one or two characters I favor above the rest.
Which character – as performed by Laurel Schroeder – was your favorite?
She does an amazing job with them all. The accents, the voice pitching, and the level of emotion in each sentence keeps the books interesting. Although if I had to pick one she does perfectly, I'd have to say that'd be Lily.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I wanted to, but alas I could not. Only took me a few days of it though. Every spare moment I could, I picked up my phone and my headset and started listening. This is probably one of my favorite books in the series.
Any additional comments?
Absolutely love the whole series. Can't wait for the next one to come out on Kindle and the next audiobook to be released. Sarah's an amazing author.

I love all of the books in the After Cilmeri series! They have great story lines!! However, it does make me crazy that the dialogue spoken in each book is always followed by he "said" or she "said" even when the character is asking a question. My son, who is a 19 yo English major, comments every time he walks into a room and hears me listening to one of these books "Oh no! You're listening to the "said" books again!" ...and he turns around and walks out because it's too painful for him to listen. Basic English classes teach to vary your vocabulary when writing to make it more interesting and engaging to the reader. For instance "Why are we taking this road?" she asked....she questioned, etc. He responded or he replied, exclaimed, demanded, etc. I keep hoping that each new book will be better in this respect, to no avail. In my opinion, the book editor(s) are really to blame. They should be catching something as basic as this and making recommendations to the author. In fairness, maybe I'm noticing it more on audio than I would if reading the book. Obviously since I've been through eight books in this series already, I'm managing to tune it out somewhat and ignore this annoyance...until my son walks back into the room and groans and retreats.
I feel like Laurel's performance has improved. She is loosening up and doesn't sound as stiff as she used to. That helps too.
