Very enjoyable story, well delivered. Leaves room for further books, but finishes the journey nicely. Thumbs up.

Took a chance on a new author and....

I was not familiar with Mr. Hamilton's works but thought I would take a chance on a new author. It is not often that I can say that I was drawn in to the story by the narrator so quickly. The characterisations worked (for me at least) the pace was just right and the story and characters developed well. The pictures of the characters and story appeared in my mind with no problems, sometimes this is a hesitant process, but not in this case. I genuinely wanted to know what happened next so I just kept listening. Something of a shock when you consider the length (aka value for money) of the three volumes.

I will not spoil any one's pleasure by discussing the plot, characters of twists and turns other than to say buckle your swash and enjoy.

I shall be looking out for the next offerings from both author and narrator.

Only down side: I used the earlier slightly more compressed format and was plagues by loads of breaks, skips, jumps and odd noises. This was not the case in the past so whatever Audible have done to their production methods has not worked. The new high res format while clear take up an awful lot of space on portable devices. Why the step back? So be careful not to detract from an excellent audio book with a less than optimum presentation.
