I read this book many years ago and when I first joined audible at the beginning of the year they had a deal on a few selected books and since I was still unsure I picked one where I had already read the book. I'm glad I didn't start with it. I still like the storyline but this narrator did not work for me at all. I felt her voices for Shana and Keman were too young and most of her other voices were similar to me.
I still like the series and will probably reread/skim the next two when I get a chance. It is a bit bittersweet since Andre Norton died and the series will never be finished. It's still a fun series though.
