Rise of the Shadow Stealers: The Firebird Chronicles ****Audiobook Review****




Rise of the Shadow Stealers: The Firebird Chronicles

  • Written by: Daniel Ingram-Brown
  • Paperback, 216 pages
    Published January 25th 2013 by Our Street Books 

Honestly the first part of this book was very hard to get into.  I don't think it was so much the story just the sound quality of the audiobook (which will be discussed later).  The story is about 2 Apprentice Adventurers Fletcher and Scoop who turn out to be partners .  Both have no memory of before but get selected to do a quest .  There they embark on a wild journey to not only find out who they are but also help the Storyteller (the ruler) .  

The story had a few twist and turns that were interesting and flowed smoothly.  I love how all the parts come together in the end.  Although I did suspect some of their story one part in particular I did not which i think is going to be a fantastic piece for the next books in the series. 
This book is great for all ages (I would say 3rd graders even can enjoy) because you have the cliche character types but how Daniel Ingram-Brown made them his own characters is great. 

(I received the Audiobook free in exchange for an honest unbiased review)



The audio portion of the book I think really took away from the story.  The sound quality was very grainy and Alaina's voice although she has a good voice to listen to, didn't change much throughout the story.  I had trouble differentiating which character was where and who was who.   It was very disappointing.
