I enjoyed the story, but the change of narrator threw me, and took a while to get used to. His style was quite different to the previous narrator.
After listening to the first two books I could not get into this one as well the narrator was not a good pick for this if they could not get back the person who did the first two. Felt like the narrator rushed the telling of the story

What did you like best about Sands of Nezza? What did you like least?
The best part is the excitement of the book. The worst part is that Alex seems to be a hundred years old. His progression from the last book to this one was too abrupt. He seemed to grow in wisdom, maturity, skill, and experience almost overnight. It was hard reconciling this Alex with the Alex from the previous books. The narration is the worst part. The voice is too old sounding for a supposed older teenager. It gave the whole book a 'blah' feel.
Would you be willing to try another book from M. L. Forman? Why or why not?
Absolutely. It may just be the narration that made the characters seem strange.
What didn’t you like about R. C. Bray’s performance?
I didn't like it at all. Sorry! I don't like saying that. His voice was too mature. Alex seemed like an old man. There were other characters where he didn't seem to get a voice down. For example, one man sounded Scottish, the next time, it's not quite the same. In all honesty, the narration turned me off completely. After the first 3 books had a different man, who also took a little getting used to, to change the voice now, at book 4, was not good. He's also very flat sounding. The overriding emotional tone of Alex and others was vague disdain. It's hard to explain though. There wasn't enough feeling. You can hear excitement, happiness, disappointment, interest, annoyance, etc. in people's voices. A lot of that seemed to be missing from this reading.
Do you think Sands of Nezza needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Of course. I'd love to hear more Adventurer stories.
