Well-paced story for kids; fantastic reader

I'm a big Toby Stephens fan, so picked this because he is the reader. But I found I liked the story, too, which is set in a fantastical ancient world which may or may not be prehistoric Britain.
Michelle Paver is a popular British children's writer and this marks the start of a new series for her.
The plot zips along apace, with many cliff-hangers, figurative and literal. Altogether an entertaining read. I'll be looking for the sequels.

Why Should the Kids Have All the Fun?

What made the experience of listening to Gods and Warriors the most enjoyable?

Written with adolescents in mind, I came to this recording for the always rewarding voice of Toby Stephens. But I was soon drawn into the magical ancient world of the Greek Isles and the surrounding tribal nations. How refreshing to find, along with the strong young runaway boy, a brave, resourceful girl fully realized and not just an afterthought. Stephens did a masterful job of getting the many voices just right. This can be a fatal flaw if the narrator's rendition of that soft, higher register girl squeaks rather than speaks. Oh and the distinctive personalities of thinking animals. I loved being part of a dolphin pod for a while. The other pleasure was in the delivery of the action itself. Not once did I detect a condescending note. But no amount of vocal mastery could overcome what could have been a ho-hum adventure tale. Paver's writing was graphic, exciting, suspenseful and satisfying. I look forward with pleasure to more in this series.

Not something I'd ordinarily read...

Okay, I'll admit it: I only got this because Toby narrated it. But I ended up really liking the story! It's not what I expected. I expected something history-based, but Gods and Warriors is actually a really fun adventure with a bit of the supernatural thrown in. I was really invested in the characters and there are some great twists.

I'm definitely going to read the rest of the series. (I just picked up book 2 from the library!) Hopefully someday Toby will narrate them too.
