AUDIO REVIEW

Thank you to Mark E Cooper for my audio copy, in exchange for a review.

Chosen follows on immediately from Rune Gate. I mean IMMEDIATELY. They are falling through the Gate at the end of Rune Gate and the beginning of here. You really SHOULD read/listen to that first, for you to get the full benefit from this one.

Alex, Thomas, Doug and the others all land in Othala, Doug's homeworld. They immediately secure the one who has been killing on Earth, binding his hands, mouth and fingers to ensure he can't cast any runes. Things have a way of going awry when plans are made, and he is aided in his escape, ALex and Doug are seperated, and Alex finds herself bound to a familiar, a massive battlecat. The Goddess has plans for Alex and her cat. Finding out the plans to assassinate the young Prince mean that Alex and the others must rush to the palace to save him.

I din't quite enjoy this one, as much as Rune Gate and having slept on it, and am writing the review this is why.

1. we didnt get much world building on Othala. I would like there to have been more.
2. (using Mr Cooper's words) its a little too questy for me. This is the first I have LISTENED to as such,. I love READING about quests, but maybe listening to them is not for me.
3. I woudl also have liked to know more about ALex's reaction to Othala and the Daughters of the Mothers. And her place in that world.

All in all though, a very good, highly recommended read. And I should like to catch up with ALex an Doug some time soon :-)

Mikael Naramore narrates again. I found that, listening using the Audible app on my phone, you can adjust the speed! It made for a much better listen, and I take back what I said about Mikael reading slowly ( in my Rune Gate Review) It wasnt him, it was the app! Beautifully narrated again,a very pleasing voice to wile away 9 hours.

Thank you, again, to Mark for my copy.

Annoying heroine

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

I do not understand why the author decided that the female lead character gradually degenerated from a troubled woman into a whinging eleven year old who worries about her interaction and relationships with men / man like a school kid.
By book 3 will she have disintegrated so far she is drawing hearts on notepad.
Such a shame this character started off troubled but intelligent the story was a bit different and looked promising. Then we went to hobbit land with dorothy from Oz via excerpts from cheaper romantic pulp fiction.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mark E. Cooper again?

no

What didn’t you like about Mikael Naramore’s performance?

its okay

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no

Any additional comments?

Brilliant Second Book.

Would you consider the audio edition of Chosen to be better than the print version?

Yes. Mikael Naramore adds that something special to the story and brings it to life.

What other book might you compare Chosen to and why?

I don't compare books to other books because every book is different.

Have you listened to any of Mikael Naramore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have and he does an amazing job on Chosen just like his other books. His voice is very crisp and concise and really easy to listen to. He changes his tone to match the situation and has a melee of different accents.

Any additional comments?

Once again Mark E Cooper delivers a great read. In this edition of the Rune Gate Cycle the guys are stranded in Douglas world and need to adapt to survive. There is magic, mayhem, action, adventure, fights, deception and more than enough of everything to keep you reading. Chosen for me was the best book in the series yet and it was made even better by the audio book.

I could feel the tension and it was like I was apart of the story while listening to the book. I loved that there are more characters and I loved Alexs' Chosen. That cat was awesome!!

I can not wait to read more in this awesome series and would highly recommend the audio edition.

Prepare yourself for a great fantasy read!

The story summary is provided by the publisher, and you won't find any spoilers here. The story is active, engrossing, and moves you right along with it. While you can tell that it's part of a series, there is nothing lost by starting with any one of them. Go on, take a risk, and enjoy the ride.
MN is perfect in this audio performance. He is skilled at giving depth to the characters' personalities and enhances the written word superbly.
