    For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination. Now the familiar tale takes on new life, fresh meaning, and an unexpected setting. Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father's kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in the primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him, for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with mysterious powers and secrets.

    Very well written and the narrarator is excellent. He's very good at distinguishing characters and makes the story that much more enjoyable. I enjoyed the plot and am anxious for the next book. It is different from your typical Robin Hood story in many ways but the story does well in any case. I especially enjoyed the end of the book where the author explains some of his reasonings for his changes in the story. All over, a good listen for anyone with a rich imagination :)

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    Overall

    Tim Curry, WELL DONE! This is such a familiar story to me and YET towards the end I was nearly brought to tears. What a wonderful listen for those who enjoy the beauty of this Dickens story. Tim Curry really gives it all the heart, horror and joy it deserves... a GOOD buy!

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

    Sherry says: "Thank You"
    "Wow, how nice!"

    About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster.

    A says: "Fantasy, with a touch of romance."
    "Please Give This a Try"
    Overall

    If you're looking for something a bit on the fantastical side with a little bit of everything, this is your book. Full of action, suspense, mystery, ingrigue, love, hate, and best in my opinion, magic. Great characters, great reader, excellent storyline. It left me siting stock still hanging on every word. I can't remember the last time I was that eager to get through a book. I can't wait to get my hands on the next story from Maria V. Snyder. This was excellent.
