Praise for Visions Of Zarua

Beautifully done! And the narration was excellent! Guy Barnes does a great job of creating distinct, believable voices for each character, with fine pacing and emotive enough to evoke more detailed imagery and experiences in the thoughts of listener while following along in this grand tale - Audible Reviewer

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 - Audible Reviewer

Two wizards, 350 years apart. Can they save the realm of Paltria from Zarua's dark past?

An ancient darkness haunts the realm of Paltria. Apprentice wizard Paddren is plagued by visions of a city on the brink of annihilation. When his master Kalesh dies in mysterious circumstances, the royal order of wizards refuses to investigate. Helped by his childhood friend, the skilled tracker Varnia, and her lover Leyoch, Paddren vows to find the killer. The investigation leads Paddren down a sinister path of assassins, secret sects, and creatures conjured by blood magic. But he is guided by a connection with a wizard from centuries ago - a wizard whose history holds the key to the horror at the heart of the abandoned city of Zarua. Can Paddren decipher his visions in time to save the Paltrian people from the dark menace of Zarua's past?

It was a pleasure to work with Guy Barnes on my audiobook, Visions of Zarua. He did an amazing job bringing my novel to life and giving each character their own unique voice. He has mastered many accents and isn't phased with narrating men or women, old or young. He's a very talented narrator and I can't wait to work with him again.' Suzanne Rogerson, Author

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.
