    Great book. My son and I listened to the first book every chance we got. We couldn't wait to see what adventures were up next. My son is excited to download and listen to book two. The narrator did an amazing job with the voices of each character.

    The narrator's voices for some of the characters was comical at times. However it was a fantastic book and read rather well. I highly recommend it.

    This is a fantastic series and the narrator gave an interesting spin on Saphira's voice that I would not have done myself.

    I've been stressed with not enough time to read & a lot of miles of commuting so I bought this audio version and honestly wasn't disappointed. Yes, Saffira's voice is way weird. And it was totally obvious soon into the narration that it is all the same reader, but it didn't really affect the quality of the writing, in my opinion. Would I like to listen to the second in the series with the same narrator? Not so much. Y'all can afford a few more character readers, do it, please! I've done it as a volunteer for years, hire me! :)
