Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay

This is not a new book, but I’m only now listing it because of the Earphone Award it has just received from AudioFile Magazine with this excellent review:
Only those who were born in Tigana can speak or hear its name and remember their homeland. But a small resistance band begins to gather in hopes of driving out the sorcerer who tried to wipe out Tigana. Simon Vance is a consummate storyteller. His characterizations are vivid and nuanced. Through an extensive repertoire of accents and judicious use of pace and tone, he differentiates a large number of characters. Vance creates a feeling of intimacy that is effective in maintaining a sense of engagement with the characters and the events that are unfolding. His narration skills are particularly welcome in a book of this length. J.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
