    Young, pregnant Fawn Bluefield has just fled her family's farm to the city of Glassforge, where she encounters a patrol of the enigmatic soldier-sorcerers known as Lakewalkers. Fawn has heard stories about the Lakewalkers, who are wandering necromancers with no permanent homes and no possessions except the clothes they wear and the mysterious knives they carry. What she does not know is that the Lakewalkers are engaged in a perilous campaign against inhuman and immortal magical entities known as "malices".

    "Fantistic"
    Overall

    Ms Bujold has a way with entertaining stories this one has another message on the views of socialistic indifference and how it mis-leads us all down the path of isolationism. Above all that it's a great story fun listen and greatly appreciated addition to the archives of fantasy works.
    Thanks

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    What did you love best about A Dance with Dragons?

    Finally another segment of centennial accomplishment! Great story lousy followup and now it's on HBO, easier to follow but the missing intermediate story line starves us all. In general read the books and when you get to the last update of the story swear and insist you will not pick up the next addition only to grab it when it finally appears.Kind of like playing Golf it only takes one nutted shot to bring you back.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story is reality based not fantasy inspired, the travels of each character is great but in order to create this montage you have to be able to accept the format. The biggest issue is the decades long wait for the Next installment.


    What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

    Good, a bit long winded style but Mr. Dotrice's narration is A+


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No 5 editions and counting who has a week to catch up!


    Any additional comments?

    Not without compromising Mr Martins ambition.

    From the best selling author of the Song of Ice and Fire series, comes this chilling story of a werewolf. A string of grotesque killings strikes a small town, and private detective Randi Wade is reminded of her father's death over 20 years ago...

    Tom says: "Well done Werewolf tale"
    "Fun book"
    Overall

    Great short listen Martin is a great enchanter unfortunately he doesn't finish his series like fire and ice which has left many of us in the wind.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Aaron says: "No Roy Dotrice"
    "Hoopla- shoopla"
    Overall

    Seems the reaction to the orator is more important than the literary prowess. I personally liked Feast for Crows, and I'm hooked on the Song of Fire & Ice series, It's been over a year since I listened to Feast. With the diversity of characters and a great cut throat plot line this is a great addition, only problem is the next book isn't out yet!
