    Across the ruined landscape that is America - hopelessly poisoned, plague-ridden, burned, and besieged by demon armies bent on exterminating all mortal life - two pilgrims have been summoned to serve the embattled cause of good. Logan Tom has journeyed to desolate Seattle to protect a ragged band of street urchins and the being known as the gypsy morph, who is both mortal and magical, and destined to save mankind unless he is destroyed.

    Bingtown is a hub of exotic trade and home to a merchant nobility famed for its liveships---rare vessels carved from wizardwood, which ripens magically into sentient awareness. The fortunes of one of Bingtown's oldest families rest on the newly awakened liveship Vivacia. For Althea Vestrit, the ship is her rightful legacy unjustly denied her---a legacy she will risk anything to reclaim.

    Lorena says: "Something altogether new"
    "If you can get past the narrator?"

    If you’ve listened to books by Robin Hobb before, how does this one compare?

    Interesting primer for a trilogy.


    What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

    I've read complaints about this narration and they're spot on its horrible. My only thought is that if you listen at 1.25 or 1.5 speed it's tolerable albeit she warbles a lot due to the nature of her slow drawn out reading

    The quest for the long-lost Elfstones has drawn the leader of the Druid order and her followers into the hellish dimension known as the Forbidding, where the most dangerous creatures banished from the Four Lands are imprisoned. Now the hunt for the powerful talismans that can save their world has become a series of great challenges: a desperate search for kidnapped comrades, a relentless battle against unspeakable predators, and a grim race to escape the Forbidding alive. But though freedom is closer than they know, it may come at a terrifying price.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    All three books in this series should have been edited into one complete story! Its frustrating to pay for each installment. I'd rather wait until the entire work is completed and pay more $$$ once for an enjoyable complete story. These are not separate books, rather just incomplete components published for profit!


    Was Bloodfire Quest worth the listening time?

    Yes

    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.

    Dianne Houston says: "OH NO ROY!!!! NOT DENARIS!!!!!!!"
    "Utterly Dismayed!"
    Overall

    Please read the many poor reviews and save your credits this book may not be worth the read to some folks BUT this production is of such awful quality any one who has already burned two credits deserves some sort of compensation for this travesty

    Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn. Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.

    Ronald says: "interesting topic - dull, boring, confusing book"
    "Just plain boring"

    How can you listen to this reader? he made a dull book Horrible
