Audible.com review about Visions Of Zarua The Narration: Guy Barnes has a great gravelly voice for Paddren. It really drew me in, making me listen all the harder. I also really liked his voice and accent for Leyoch. His female characters voices were feminine, and his voice for Varnia was well done indeed. The pacing was perfect and there were no tech issues with the recording. Even though I grew to find Varnia annoying, I truly appreciated how Barnes captured the myriad of emotions this character was going through. 5/5 stars.

Mai's Musings - about Visions Of Zarua I am very particular about audio book narrators. They can make or break a book for me and I have abandoned some very good books purely because I couldn’t get on with the narrator. Guy Barnes has a gentle, easy to follow voice and I loved his characterisation of the different people we were introduced to. Amazon Review about Ringstraked: Ruin Of The Giant King After reading the e-book, I went ahead and bought the audio book on Audible, which gave the story even more life thanks to skillful narration. Audible Review - Ringstraked :Ruin Of The Giant King The world building was rich and the strong characters skillfully brought to life by Guy Barnes made this an epic story. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Audible Review - The Diamond Ship Myself and my 3 children have just finished listening to this and we all loved it! They especially liked the pirate voice narration and the incredible detail of life onboard a pirate ship, including some really gruesome bits. I liked that it is based on fact and is historically accurate! Highly recommended!!
