His performance was solid and enthralling. His accents and female voices were top-notch. The authors and narrator together will captivate the listener until the end." <i>AudiobookReviewer.com</i> &#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733 <font size="3" color="red"><b>The Enigma Series, Book 3: The Enigma Ignite</b></font> Shoales continues his amazing narration work with this next book in the series. I enjoy his voice as it helps me get into the story easier knowing which character is speaking based on the little distinctions he does for each of them. I really love his accents as well! No production errors from what I can tell. Shoales is a perfect narrator for the series and I’m glad he has continued with the series if only for consistency 🙂 I give it a 5/5 stars. <i>Audible.com- BookAddict'sReviews</i> &#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733 <font size="3" color="red"><b>The Enigma Series, Book 4: The Enigma Wraith</b></font> Derek Shoales, the narrator for the Enigma series is excellent. He has distinct voices for each character and moves the story further through his energy. He has become the Enigma series to me. He’s perfect. His voice is soothing yet exudes appropriate emotions. <i>Audible- AudiobookReviewer.com</i> &#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733 <font size="3" color="red"><b>The Enigma Series, Book 5: The Enigma Stolen</b></font> Mr. Shoales’ performance is once again strong and energetic with a number of great vocal intonations to keep the characters diverse and believable. The effort put in to make sure each character’s regional dialect is delivered right does not go unnoticed. He has a true talent for voice acting that really makes the audiobook come to life. His gift has grown between this book and the last. <i>Tricia Hill- InD'tale</i> &#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733 <font size="3" color="red"><b>The Enigma Series, Book 6: The Enigma Always</b></font> Derek Shoales as the narrator of this series is awesome! I love listening to him, he moves the story along with his interpretation of what he thinks each character sounds like as well as injecting the appropriate emotions into the story. <i>Audible- AudiobookReviewer.com</i> &#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733&#9733</br></br>
