Daphne asked Jennifer A. Nielsen:

Hi! I was just wondering, in The Ascendance Trilogy, what do the different accents sound like? Are they kind of like British accents, or American accents, or something different entirely? (Btw, by different accents I mean the accents of the different countries - Avenia, Carthya, etc)

Jennifer A. Nielsen Hi Daphne! For accents - and this is only in my head, of course - the Carthyan accent would be closest to a British accent. Avenia would be similar to Prince Caspian's on the second Narnia movie.
