    A tale of archetypal heroes and sweeping adventures, of dragons and princes and evil wizards, here is epic fantasy as only Stephen King could envision it.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Eyes of the Dragon?

    The storytelling was amazing. The narrative was outstanding. Period. The story itself was very atypical of fantasy. I enjoyed the inclusion of good ole' Flagg too. It wasn't your run of the mil King novel, either. Although there was virtually no combat scenes, it was full of action. The characters were astoundingly deep, with the exception of Peter, maybe.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Eyes of the Dragon?

    The moment where Thomas witnesses the poisoning of Roland.


    Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I've seen a few movies he stars in, but this was incredible. I am definitely going to research more books that he narrates.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a few times. I was on the edge of my seat most of the time.


    Any additional comments?

    I reccomwnd this story to people who like King's versatile writing style, fantasy with deep characters, or just a great story. I am regretful that it wasn't any longer, though.

  • Theft of Swords: Riyria Revelations, Volume 1

    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.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Theft of Swords?

    The poor characterization, for the most part. I didn't feel any of the characters had any real death. They were very straight-forward and predictable.... And cliche. The story had the potential to be interesting, but it was poorly constructed, and very unoriginal. I found myself wishing one of the protagonists would die. It would've made things more interesting.


    Has Theft of Swords turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, although I feel that this book should be included in the teens/childrens section of the library.


    Which character – as performed by Tim Gerard Reynolds – was your favorite?

    None of them.... As well preformed as they were, I had absolutely no empathy for any of them.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Mostly disappointment. I regret purchasing this book.
