G takes us there again I d love to knowabout Arames Kragen The hints at his past are delicious and must be explored further During my period of impatience while waiting for another book in this world, I m reading the published version.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story I ve always had a thing for mystery stories as a child This story is part mystery and fantasy I thoroughly enjoyed it The author did a wonderful job with the characters After listening to a fair share of podcast stories, this is one of the best I ve listened to I enjoyed the voices and sounds of the podcast as well.
There are a number of things to recommend this project Holyfield obviously put a lot of effort into the production The characters are generally well formed, and the plot is well constructed, along with the world he s built The concept of a murder mystery in a fantasy setting is interesting, and not one you see often And he keeps the reader guessing though, admittedly, I m pretty easy to fool with a mystery.
I found it hard to finish, though The writing itself is clunky, wordy, and overly descriptive EX He used his legs to rise from his chair The prince moved back and up into a crouch , it frequently stumbles over word repetition throwing off the cadence and flow of the text EX Light emanated from a room at the end of the hallway There were multiple entrances to rooms between them and the lighted room Doppin pulled up his legs to sit cross legged , and the author does POV shifts mid scene without warning I noted a few examples, but all of these issues are pervasive throughout the work.
The author did close the book well, in dramatic fashion But still, the issues with the writing throughout made it difficult to get there.

G Holyfield explains these are religious text from in the world and will be read by another to lessen confusion This change helps greatly in listening to the book, in reading it probably won t affect you.
