    In the distant future, society has crumbled. Dark forces now rule the land, keeping all humans under their oppressive thumbs.

    Into The Wide Blue says: "READ"
    "Uninteresting"
    Overall

    I looked forward to listening to this book. I had known about Fred Saberhagen for sometime as I have been "into" SF for many years, but just hadn't gotten around to any of his material. Well... I just couldn't get into this story. I quit in the middle of part 3. I did not care about characters, the plot was not unique. It was like he told himself he needed to write a book that had some typical sci fi/fantasy riffs, complete with the usual suspects. . I just can't recommend this book. I did not care for the plot or characters. It did not have any heart. There are too many good ones out there don’t waste your time.

    After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

    Jessy says: "An epic tale with intrigue, mystery and wonder"
    "I don't get it."
    Overall

    This book was a disappointment to me. I hung in their and listened to the entire book only because so many had rated this book so high. As another reviewer wrote: "The narration drove me nuts...the narrator tells the story in a breathy, slurred manner... He drones on without pausing when changing from one character to the next, startling you into realizing something is different". I have listened to many audiobooks. This one was the worse. For the life of me, I can't believe its rating.
