At Fountain Reach, Alex is perfectly placed among the noted and notorious to figure out why apprentices have been vanishing. But the tournament is a minefield of ancient grudges and new threats, and Alex can't afford to miss a trick as his elusive adversary stays one step ahead in this most dangerous of games.

He doesn't do women's voices well
Yes, Jacka is a good story teller, even if the books could do with tighter editing. There were many times I sat in the car outside the house not wanting to turn it off.He tends to use the same sentence constructs over again which is OK when reading the books, but jars when it is narrated.
Gildart Jackson does not do the women's voices well. He makes them sound all breathy, and permanently petrified which jars with their actions. Not enough to put me off altogether though!
