Audiobook Review: The Secret King Lethao by Dawn Chapman, Narrated by Greg Tremblay
It's not often that you come across a well crafted fully formed universe within a story, but that's exactly what Dawn Chapman has achieved here - an entire civilisation with an ancient and nuanced culture. If your geek level is on par with mine, think Sword of Truth crossed with Mass Effect.
They must race to escape their dying planet and the aliens bent on their annihilation. Then they must try and survive the journey to find a new home. There are those within their own ranks who want to topple the king and his carefully laid plans, and you are left on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what happens next.
The narration is delivered by Greg Tremblay, who pulls off a large number of characters, alien languages, and a range of emotions in a way that will pull you directly in to Dawn's creation. There were a couple of brief moments where you became aware of a bit of background noise, possible pages turning during the recording stage, but overall the level of production and performance are great value for money.
I won't spoil it for you, but I do highly recommend you have a listen and judge for yourself. Available for download on iTunes, Audible and Amazon.
