    Some breaks in logic, but an enjoyable listen

    Any additional comments?

    First, the bad, there are some breaks in logic. They are not glaring, but they do sadly go down the path of....well, she is just an emotional women, it can be excused....so, I felt it necessary to comment on that. It doesn't take away from the story(s), but they do drop the intelligence level. Also, the main topics of each book vary widely. So, if you are anticipating a connected story from beginning to end...well, all you really get are the same characters. The characters are slightly 1 dimensional, but nothing too horrible. For these points, I subtracted stars.

    Now, the good, its an enjoyable listen. The story flows, its interesting, and topics are generally cool to think about.

    Conclusion, its worth a credit, but don't expect something brilliant.

    Fun and strange mashup of scifi and fantasy

    What made the experience of listening to Forgotten Ages the most enjoyable?

    The story is fun. A mix between fantasy, scifi, and steampunk, it is an enjoyable ride that keeps one invested in the likable and down-to-earth main characters. Descriptions of different countries and peoples are well developed and vivid, you can really picture this world.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't really have a favorite character, they were all well-developed and sketched. You really did get a feel for each person in the book. Rias and Tikaya were a great couple. There was no use of miscommunication drama and not knowing if they liked each other. There was a base of mutual respect and admiration between the two that was refreshing and realistic.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    This collection had two books and a novella, so there were a lot of scenes. I can't think of a favorite but they were all well described. I could see the snowy north and deserted town in book 1, and the tropical island in book two. You really felt enveloped in these worlds.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a couple of times but no extreme reactions. It was a great fun and breezy listen, made the commute enjoyable and kept my mind occupied with a fun world filled with many details and peoples. It was definitely an escape from the everyday and I would listen to it again.

    PLEASE ADD A SCI/FY YA CATAGORIE TO YOUR Menu!!!!!

    This a complaint more about Audible than Lindsay Buroker. The book is relatively well written and the narration is appropriate for the material. However, Audible needs to separate YA stories from straight SCI/FY. I'm so tired of wasting my credits on YA I could scream. YA is fine for YOUNG ADULTS, just tell me. Not for the first time I've considered cancelling my membership. Yes, I know, I can return the book. It would be much more effective for Audible to just use their computer prowess to accurately describe the book. THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!!!!!

    A pleasure to finally listen to

    I have owned all three of stories in this set since they were originally released and have loved them. I have read them multiple times and was thrilled to find out that Tavia Gilbert would narrate the stories.

    My only complaint and this might have been an issue with my download, I'm not sure but I swear the recording was spend up. Tavia sounded like she was speed reading through the text which was very off putting considering I've enjoyed Tavia on other series in the past. I slowed the play back to .75 and it sounded great then.

    I am eager to find out if Tavia will be doing the other books in this world by Buroker - I would really enjoy hearing others.

    Book 1 Fantastic, Book 2 Not so Much

    Any additional comments?

    Book 1:

    A wonderful adventure/romance set in a colorful world. Main character Tikaya is a prisoner for the entire book, but she is neither helpless nor overconfident/overpowered. I found her very believable. Rias is a little too perfect, and I wish that I understood him a bit better. Their relationship was touching.

    The technology in this story is totally random and doesn't make much sense, but I don't care. The cultures are fascinating and not at all superficial copies of real world cultures. I wish I knew more about them Books rarely do this well, and it's an aspect of both sci-fi and fantasy I love dearly.

    All and all a great book.

    Novella:

    Didn't do anything for me. It wasn't bad, but it seemed like a part of a much longer story that never gets told. The ending is resolute but not satisfying. I read that this is a sort of prequel to another series, so maybe it gets covered elsewhere.

    Book 2:

    Upsetting. In this book, Tikaya takes Rias back to her peaceful island nation to meet her family. The police immediately put a shock collar on him and proceed to torture him as he walks around her house chatting with her family. It is such a jarring combination of subtle character moments randomly interrupted by *torture* *torture* *torture.* Tikaya just keeps on chatting about her childhood memories. I would be curled in a corner crying hysterically if my boyfriend was being tortured on my kitchen floor. Tikaya is both useless and helpless here.

    There are also some really poorly written caricatures in this book. Everyone on the island hates and fears Rias, and yet Tikaya's one note "slutty" cousin walks up and puts her hand down his pants. Apparently she sleeps with 3-4 farm workers every night? Buroker should be ashamed of writing this kind of one dimensional, nonsensical character into the story. It's offensive and it's cheap.

    I loved the first book so much that I am having a hard time abandoning the second, but it's painful to read.

    Fun and different.

    This is a combination of magic, steam punk, adventure, and romance. It's a fun read and worth the wait time.

    Enjoyable

    This was a fun read. I really didn't know what to expect when I got this book. Sometimes it was just a little cookie cutter, but at other times it was quite novel, and had twists and turns i didn't expect. The narration was great. I've not read Lindsay Buroker, nor listened to Tavia Gilbert before, but will definately look out for them again.

    Didn't capture my attention at all

    I forced myself to finish the first book, but it was tough. I wanted to quit many times. On the surface, it seems like it should have been interesting, but I just didn't care about the characters at all. There was no emotion. It was like someone detachedly relaying what happened. Too bad. Around 6 hours in, I started to care a little bit, but not much. I couldn't get myself to continue to the next book, even though it was included in the download for free. The narrator didn't help - most of the characters had the same voice, so it was hard to tell who was talking.

    Entertaining

    I really wasn't expecting this book to be any good but I really enjoyed it. The story was great and the action-adventure was non stop. There is even a bit of romance.

    Romance trash, not fantasy or science fiction

    I wanted to like this. The characters are interesting. I couldn't get past the longing looks and sighs over her enemy whom she now adores. I couldn't finish but I'm betting the lead characters do everything they are dreaming about in every single chapter.

    Narrator is fine. The author's world building was solid. if you love romance novels, this is for you.

    Frauen Fantasy der angenehmen Art

    Das Buch besteht aus zwei in sich abgeschlossenen Bänden mit den gleichen Haüptprotagonisten. Die beiden Bücher bauen aufeinander auf.

    Es ist die Liebesgeschichte zweier Menschen aus feindlichen Kriegslagern und somit ein Genre, das hauptsächlich Frauen ansprechen dürfte. Unter diesem Aspekt steht auch meine Bewertung, im Vergleich zu anderen Büchern dieser Art.
    Der Autorin ist es gelungen, die Romanze in einen spannenden Handlungsablauf einzubetten, gewürzt mit feinsinnigem Humor und einer guten Prise Erotik.

    Ich finde es sehr angenehm, dass dabei auf lächerliche pornografische Darstellungen verzichtet wurde, was leider in diesem Genre allzuoft die Normalität ist. Frau Buroker versteht es, die Fantasie anzuregen um dann dem Leser die eigenen Freiräume zu lassen. Auch arbeitet sie mit einem weitaus weniger klischeehaftem Frauenbild als üblich. Dafür meine volle Punktzahl!

    Die Sprecherin hat eine gute Stimme und versteht es hervorragend die unterschiedlichen Charaktere sprachlich herauszuarbeiten. Einen Stern habe ich abgezogen, da sie für meinen Geschmack etwas zu viel amerikanischen Slang hat und etwas zu schnell liest, was häufig ein Gefühl der Hektik aufkommen läßt.
