Siege and Storm

Siege and Storm - I listened to this on audio and, while the story was amazing, I wasn't a big fan of the narration by Lauren Fortgang. For some reason, the narrator uses this whispery weird fake villain-y voice for The Darkling that just annoys the hell out of me and I spent most of the book wishing she would just read the story in her normal voice. Using that stupid voice makes the Darkling seem somewhat ridiculous instead of being alluring and dark and a bit scary as I felt he should have been portrayed. The poor narration takes something significant away from what is otherwise an incredible story. I hope they find a different narrator for the next book in the series.
