Having so thoroughly enjoyed The Riddlemaster of Hed, I was slightly surprised to hear someone different narrate Book 2. But having Fiona Walsh narrate Raederle's story makes perfect sense, and while the accents wobble a little during her narration and she pronounces some words differently from the first narrator, she reads well and with feeling. I have read this trilogy more times than I care to remember, but this reading is beautifully done and very moving.
This is an excellent book! I gave it 5 stars based on the book. The narrator is terrible! Her pronunciation is horrifically annoying. She slaughters the names of the characters in the book to the point that you wish she would never make another audiobook! This book is excellent and desperately deserves a better reader. Thankfully, this book is good enough that I listen to the audiobook to enjoy the story in spite of the lame narration. It would be a great service for Audible to have Simon Prebble read this book and replace this pathetic excuse for narration with a talented, better suited voice.

I enjoyed Ms Walsh's reading of Book 2 of the Riddle Master Trilogy with one item that really annoyed me. She pronounces the proper names of many of the characters and lands completely differently than the reader of the 1st Book. I don't understand why this was done; it was very jarring at first, and I never quite got used to it. Other than that, well done.
