Review of Book
having liked the first book in the Arcane series (Second Sight) and been a bit more ambivalent about the second one (maybe due to the narration). I wasn’t so sure how I would like the 3rd, but I figured I would give it a try. I have to say compared to the second one, I was pleasantly surprised. While the dialogue still had a bit of a cheese factor, it def. wasn’t as bad as the second one. Although, if I had to hear again about Raynne flashing them a “fuck you grin” I might have screamed…anyways, interesting entry for the series and i’m intrigued to see what happens in the next one, which goes back to the historical setting.
Review of the Narration
Looking back on it, I think the second book for me was almost ruined by the narration (at least the female narrator), so this entry was a significant improvement. Narrated by Sandra Burr, I found myself much more involved in the story-telling and wanting to listen to more, whereas with the second one, it was like, oh, ok…time to stop for the day. My only comment would be that this could have done with a male narrator at times – even if it was just limited to the male voices over the phone, there was something a bit disconcerting about how they sounded.
