Shame about the narration

The change in narrator was a bad decision and disappointing. Every time she mispronounced a name I mentally corrected her, which was distracting. However, more annoying was how she split sentances so the narrative didn't flow as well as it should and spoilt the action at times.
Story was good, but rambled a bit at times. I still found myself laughing out loud at parts and it was enjoyable, perhaps not quite as good as The Rook. I put that down to the narrator and if it had been read by the previous narrator and I'm sure it would've given it 5 stars all round.

great story, shame about the narration

Being book two I expected the narrator to be the same, or to have at least read the first book. It was very grating that she miss pronounced a main characters name most of the way through.
