Have been looking forward to the release of the Rigante series for a while. I've always loved the books and was hoping it would be read by the same narrator as the Drenai series.
Sadly, the narrator is awful and seems to pick the worst accents possible. I don't really understand the choice of a female narrator either, most of the characters are men. It's a fairly male centric storyline. Its all a bit strange.

I feel they should have used a better narrator. This lady made Banuin sound like the count from Sesame Street.
Now that I have gotten through most of the book, the narrator really ruined the accents in this story for me. I always had in my head Scottish and English accents. I don't know why she made the stone people sound like they're from Transylvania

The Regante series is amazing! Possibly David Gemmells best. However, you have to question the judgment of using a female voice actor to read a book with primarily male characters. Adjoa Andoh has a nice voice and tells the story portion well. She simply shouldn't have been cast for this story. The Dialog between male characters is terrible! Someone with a very nice feminine voice just can't mimic gruff male warriors. She struggles to add so much base that the words come out choppy and all emotion is lost from her delivery. I ended up finishing the book because I love the story. I found it helps to think of the dialog as being so bad that it is funny.
