Take a Thief by Mercedes Lackey, is narrated by Paul Woodson

Clockwork Boys by T. Kingfisher is narrated by Khristine Hvan.
Thank you! Makes it easier to keep track of narrators, both good and bad.

But Jeffery Kafer has grown on me. I'm looking forward to the "Smuggler's tale" books now that they are on audio. I haven't read them. I don't have any cheap Audible deals right now, though.
I had listened to the podcasts, though only long after I had read the books in the first place. Then, when the Jeffrey Kafer versions came out, I found the transition to them quite easy -- oh, a few things that jarred, but really not that bad. Probably because I started with reading the eBooks. But now, with the first (and one assumes the rest, shortly) of the Smuggler's Tales, the narrator is Emily Woo Zeller, and I am not enjoying her narration. Instead of allowing the narrative to flow, every. single. sentence. has. to. be. separate. and. distinct.

If this were another author, I'd send the book back to Audible. But I won't do that to Lowell. (And I know he had zero control over the choice of narrators or anything else. )
