2.5/5; 3 stars; C+I listened to this book a couple of weeks ago. I liked it but didn't love it. I think the premise was interesting but there were too many characters and not enough depth to any of them. This is a pretty long book. It was 16 discs on audio. There wasn't 16 discs worth of story. I don't think I'll be pursuing this series. I guess I have to say I was a bit disappointed to see this offering from such an experienced and accomplished author.Melanie Ewbank and Patrick Lawlor were the narrators of this audiobook. They did a good job.
