We need to talk...

It's very refreshing to follow non-military characters in the Halo universe, and the story is intriging even with the lack of strong action scenes. Just don't expect the story to be over by the end of the book...
Big problem with this entry : the narration. I completely understand that with so many female characters at the front of the story, it was better to choose a female narrator. But the way she speaks when playing male characters is so strange that it take away the immersion, especially with the covenants and even more with one of the most iconic character of the franchise...
I don't know if it's possible, but I think that we would need a two gender narration for this kind of book.

Good book, Horrendous narration

I've listened to every Halo audiobook so far, most half a dozen times a piece. As usual, Kelly Gay wrote a great book. The narration absolutely ruined her work. Justine's speech patterns made this a serious challenge to follow. She speaks in the manner of a child who is being forced to apologize through clenched teeth. I am truly saddened that I wasted this months credit here as I am sure to never finish this audiobook.

Horrible Narration!

I like the author and I was excited for this release. I really enjoyed Smoke and Shadow but I can’t listen to this. The narrator is awful! She sounds like Cortana in the death throws of rampancy. The stress on the syllables is all wrong. It’s like you’re listening to a Siri reject. I don’t understand how she got the job. It makes me cringe just listening to this. I do like the author so I guess I’ll buy the book and just read it. Return this one folks! It’s not up to standard. I was looking forward to this and I am angry they didn’t go with some of the other more professional narrator like the ones from New Blood or Silent Storm. Justine Eyre if you are reading this please stop narrating books and go get a speech therapist!

Great Story, eh narrator.

Please bring back any of the previous narrators. The story is amazing, but the narrator almost put me off, and this a first for the series(and I have listened to all the Halo novels). Please bring back Scott Brick or the narrator from Battle Born (I’m fine with women narrators...it was jarring to hear Rion called Ryan). Thanks.

worst narrator EVER!!!!

The story was good but it was ruined by the worst narrating ever! She screwed up most of the main characters names and she had really one voice for the whole story and she mumbled through parts of it!

DON'T get this story if you are a avid Halo story listener because it might ruin it for you like it did for me.

the narrator makes everything seem bland

I love the story but she made most characters seem ancient and toothless. The pace is like an 8oz glass of molasses on a 15 ft pancake. no energy in this

great story, horrible narration.

you should re-record this with a different narrator, the lady you used is completely incompatible with the character's of the halo series and severely detracted from the story. I highly recommend in the future when doing a series to use the same narrator for the whole series.

its decent

I like the idea behind this book. but the narrator is absolutely bad. she doesnt have the good vocal range for Male or alien Voices. would've preferred Scott Brick over this rookie.

Great story, really bad sound narration quality

I don't know who checked this recording but the quality is terrible. She sounds like a robot in the worst way possible. Someone screwed up big time and this completely ruins the story. The story is great, good addition etc. Read the book, avoid paying for this as an audio book. If the file gets corrected, ignore my review

No phrasing continuity between narrators!

I really wish with how much production must cost on this, it wouldn't be that hard to have name continuity in pronunciation between narrators. That would be nice.
