This was a particularly satisfying listen, just like its predecessor, for the insight into political aspects that were a little more nuanced than most. The three character rotation throughout the series has been enjoyable because all of the characters are believable within their capacities to act (or not). This book particularly had a satisfying denouement and the final sentence was wonderful.
Chris Wraight-The Regents Shadow Audiobook, The one weird take away I have for this book is they have the voice actor who plays Guilleman but the decided to have the other voice actor say his parts it ended up sounding like the character was impersonating him rather than him talking. maybe that was what they were going for I think the book could have been better if the voice actors read parts for eachother but I understand why they didnt do that. pretty ok storry though.
