Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Written by number one New York Times best-selling author Marieke Nijkamp, Critical Role: Vox Machina - Kith & Kin follows a brand-new story, featuring the cunning ranger Vex'ahlia and the conning rogue Vax'ildan (and, of course, Trinket) years before they meet Vox Machina. 

After leaving the unwelcoming refuge of Syngorn, the twins become entangled in a web spun by the Clasp, and for the first time Vex and Vax find themselves on opposite sides of a conflict that threatens the home they have carried with each other for years.

Storyline: Cliche & Boring. Performance: Supurb

Wow I wanted to like this book and, when it started I did. The performance is fantastic. Robbie is an amazing narrator and it is great to hear Laura and Liam do Vex and Vax. I love these guys.

But honestly it doesn't save the slow moving, cliched and frustrating predictable plot.
Buy it if you are a fan I guess.
But I have read better fan fiction for free.

brilliant

this is a worth while book to listen to if your a fan of the CR lore and find Vax and Vex your favourite characters then this book is for you. but it will equally entertain anyone who is a fan of the genre or books in general.

Prequel to vox machina

Fun story of the half elf twins from vox machinia and good compliment to the other critical roll campaign 1 comics.

Robbie is a fantastic narrator and I'll be looking for more of him

a must read for fans of Vox Mschina

great story of the early travels of our favourite half-elf twins.
it was made even more enjoyable being read by Robbie Daymond and having Liam and Laura voice their respective characters throughout too.

Fantastic window into the twins past

Amazing storey well narrated. Having Liam and Laura read their own parts was magical. I have missed hearing Vex and Vax so much! Between this and the new animated series on Amazon prime, I have got my fix! Couldn't imagine anyone better to tie it all together than Robby, he really brought the characters to life!
Must listen for critters and non critters alike!

Really good, especially for the fans

Robbie (the narrator) did a fenomenal job. The story was also intruiging, however at a few points I felt the whole "I miss my sibling" drama too elongated. But overall it was a very good read and I eagerly wait for the next novel, be it from the same author or another.

A fun book regardless of whether or not you are familiar with Critical Role. Robbie Daymond's narration was excellent and I hope he does more audio books with Critical Role.

Perfect

I love CR and loved this prequel to the twins story.
Robbie Daymond is an amazing narrator and having Liam and Laura reprise their roles as Vex and Vax is definitely the cherry on top

A fantastic tale of siblings

This audio book is fantastically delivered. Robbie has a fantastic array of voices, noting all are from the UK region. Liam and Laura are fantastic, it's great having the book portrayed from their characters directly. the story itself is a very well thought out tale of multiple sets of brothers and sisters. The story was somewhat predictable, but still enjoyable nonetheless.

An enthralling tale

This story was a great tale of family and intrigue. Well read by Robbie Daymond. Knowledge of the future canon “Critical Role” happenings are not needed to enjoy this tale of faith, hope and family. Highly recommend

It pulls you right in

As the plot moved forward, I found myself getting worked up over decisions the characters made, over how things seemed to progress. And I realized that for the first time in ages, I was feeling invested in the story, in the stakes, and the lives of these fictional protagonists. Definitely recommend for newcomers and Critical Role fans alike!
