    Story
    (167)

    The unthinkable has occurred in the kingdom of Lyonya. The queen of the Elves - known as the Lady - is dead, murdered by former elves twisted by dark powers. Now the Lady’s half-elven grandson must heal the mistrust between elf and human before their enemies strike again. Yet as he struggles to make ready for an attack, an even greater threat looms across the Eight Kingdoms.Throughout the north, magic is reappearing after centuries of absence, emerging without warning in family after family - rich and poor alike.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    For the love of God, keep the same narrator in a series, if they must be replaced, don't use an amateur hack who has no variable persona of voices to use.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The series is fantastic, but if this narrator is used again I will be reading future books in print form.


    What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe’s performance?

    She has poor separation in voice between characters and almost the same with narration. The speech is halting and varies in pronunciation.

    Story

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Joanna says: "Wow!"

    What made the experience of listening to The Name of the Wind the most enjoyable?

    Patrick Rothfuss' unique setting, magic system, and most of all character sense for Kvothe coupled with Nick Podehl's gifted narration make this story a must.


    What other book might you compare The Name of the Wind to and why?

    This book is in a league of it's own. Perhaps for uniqueness of world creation, Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn or Rithmatist Series' are in the same category, but as for character development and depth of connection to the reader, Kingkiller Chronicles is in a whole separate category.


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    His voice range and uniquely distinct accents along with sustained pronunciation.

    Story

    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Magpie says: "Two books in one - keep listening!!"
    "Terrifically Entertaining and Awesome Characters"

    The character development and new approach to fantasy stereotypes in this series is refreshing and comforting at the same time.
