    Description

    War looms on the horizon, but Selene’s training as a wizard must begin...even though her age makes success nearly unattainable.

    Will searches for a solution, but their only hope may be a dangerous bargain with the king. The fate of two nations lies on his shoulders, and the future is paved with violence. With few options, he needs the aid of uncertain allies and dubious friends. Traitors lurk among them, and soon he will be forced to choose who to trust - and who to sacrifice. For a terrible power has arrived in Darrow, and the price of victory will be paid in blood.

    Jarring recording EQ differences.

    There appears to be two different EQ settings for the narration being used. The majority of the book is great, but then there are "patch" sections of audio that has less mid-range and the difference is rather jarring to listen to.

    All of those patch sections really need to be re-recorded using the same mic and EQ settings so it sounds like a cohesive audiobook.

    Pre Review for Audible here

    (I haven't finished this book yet so this only applies to the first 12 hours or so.) There is nothing wrong with Tim's performance it is excellent as always, However there are severe quality problems with the audio itself. There are sections of audio that go in and out. One of high quality and warmth, the second only lasts for a few words or sentence's but it sounds like it was recorded on my phones memo app its tinny, muddy and distant. It was infrequent for the first 6-7 hours of the book and then it started to happen more and more often, the audio just phases back and forth from high to low quality. I don't know if production was rushed on this but it sounds like edits to the audio were poorly sliced in. Its not enough ruin the experience of the story but it breaks the flow and its something that Podium and Audible should defiantly fix, its not even close to their normal standards.

    EDIT: Now that I've finished the book I can report that the audio issues get worse and more frequent in the last quarter of the book. There are points where the transition happens multiple times in the same sentence. Where as before it was infrequent and a minor annoyance; towards the last 6 hours of the book it was a near constant and jarring interruption to the performance. With about 2.5 hours left in the book, I bought the kindle version and finished it off the old fashioned way.

    It is an excellent addition to the "Art of the Adept" series, the Story and Tim's performance deserve five stars. However the QC department needs to be suspended without pay, I would have rather waited another week or two for them to sort out this issue then for it to be rushed with such glaring problems.

    Love the book, great performance but...

    This needs an additional pass through the QC department. Just some choppy audio. I downloaded it the day it came out so it may be fixed already

    Audio needs to be redone

    Story is as great as usual. The audio however is full of issues. The performance is fine, but it sounds like random sections were recorded with a different microphone so audio randomly shifts pitch /tone.

    great book, awful audio

    audio needs to be either recorded or go through some major editing as half of the lines are recorded with high quality microphones and the other half sounds like a cell phone

    Different Direction

    I liked the book, mostly. I’m a bit sad and disappointed with the story direction, is all. Lots of reviews concerning the studio editing, so I’ll leave that alone except to say that it did indeed detract from the listening experience.

    I just… I find it hard to root for the protagonist in this story. In fact, I was kinda hoping Will would fall flat on his face. William, the main character, comes off as a know-it-all with the annoying habit of whining, manipulating and plotting when he doesn’t get his way, no matter how petty. Master Cartwright just seems creepy as he frequently forces others because “he knows best” and abuses people and relationships as he grows in power. Not at all the character I was rooting for in previous installments.

    I don’t mean to say that I won’t listen to more in the series. I just hope it doesn’t strike me the same way.

    Series is amazing

    Book is great. The narrator stays amazing as well. I seen a review stating that the MC is turning somewhat evil. I think if a person goes through as much as the MC has he will become a darker. Not only that he still has his humanity. He is still compassionate. He is just not naive anymore. The humor is still one of the best things about this book. Keep up the good work

    Great listen but with some audio issues

    This is the only book in the series with this problem. You can clearly tell where audio has been spliced in. The recording "tone" of the narrator gets slightly muted/washed out/quieter in a good number of places. Barely noticeable at first, I thought it was my phone, but then I noticed it on another device and could clearly hear it at every point it happened from then on. It's only for a sentence or three and then it goes back to normal, until the next instance.

    Still worth the credit/purchase and listen. Would've been 5 stars across the board otherwise.

    Great book, but it could have been better

    I am slightly disappointed in this book. At least when I compare it to the other previous three books. Not so disappointing that I wouldn’t use a credit on it, but I expected a betterment on the series. First of all, I noticed some quality issues in the narration. There was this constant change of frequency that was going in and out of the narration, almost as if a different mic was being used, or the mic wasn’t positioned correctly. This issue would pop up for a minute, disappear for a while, and pop right up again. Kind of jarring and annoying. I think we all expect better quality from these audiobooks.
    I’m not sure if I like the development of the character. In courtesy to those who haven’t read this book yet, things happen in this book that just seem out of character for the protagonist. This book just turns kind of dark and creepy. I know it’s a war book, but instead of growing in morality, the main character seems to lose some.
    I enjoyed this book. Don’t think I didn’t. Things just went in a direction I wasn’t expecting.
    So, I rated the story four out of five. It was too good for it to be rated as a three, but it wasn’t great enough to be rated as a five. If I rated the other three books, I’m pretty sure I rated them five out of five.

    Fantastic story but disruptive recording

    What happened there? The narrator is great, the author is one of my new favourites. But the recording of this audiobook constantly switches between two clearly separate takes with wildly different audio parameters. It's so incredibly immersion-breaking. Mostly single sentences or quotes that seem to have been re-recorded at a later date, with a different setup. The book itself deserves a 5/5, I really loved it. The narrator is somewhere between 4 and 5 for me. But the audiobook quality...ouch.

    Best Story since long

    For me, this hole Story was better and more binding than the most other Fantasy related books I heared so far. It was even more enjoyable than Harry Potter. The law behind it was discribed better than in most other story's.

    Top Story - Audio needs work

    I really love this story, a good continuation of the series. The one thing that annoys me, is the filtering (I guess) issues with the Audio. It keeps on jumping from one preset to the other (at least it sounds like it) which is not only annoying for the ears but also changes the voice of the narrator so much that it is sometimes difficult to tell which character he is impersonating…
    Other than that, it s a 5 Star all the way 😊
