    The Crescent Moon Kingdoms, home to djenn and ghuls, holy warriors and heretics, are at the boiling point of a power struggle between the iron-fisted Khalif and the mysterious master thief known as the Falcon Prince. In the midst of this brewing rebellion a series of brutal supernatural murders strikes at the heart of the Kingdoms. It is up to a handful of heroes to learn the truth behind these killings: Doctor Adoulla Makhslood, Raseed bas Raseed, Adoulla’s young assistant, and Zamia Badawi, Protector of the Band.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I really loved that the book pushed the borders of normal fantasy. The book is set in the world of the 1001 night's tales - or a world like this. The storytelling is really different from most books I have read - the storytelling perspective shift from chapter to chapter much like in Game of Thrones, but in Throne of the Crescent Moon the perceptive always shift to another person in the same scene, so the location do not change with the character.


    Any additional comments?

    The middle of the book is a bit dry, but otherwise it is good an interesting.

    Very very enjoyable. I laughed out loud a number of time. The Wee Free Men are really funny and have made all English into Scottish in my head today. I can strongly recommend the audiobook. Stephen Briggs has done a great job with this one!

    I can not remember when I last listened to a book this fast. I found my self finding excuses to sit down and listen to more. It is not a serious story at all but it is Great fun and full of action.

    Story

    In Wyrd Sisters, the enchanting world of Discworld is turned upside down by 3 meddling witches: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick. Their interference in royal politics causes kingdoms to wobble, crowns to topple, knives to flash, and citizens to shudder in fear.

    Katy says: "Happy I gave it a chance, despite other reviews"
    "annoying dramatisation"
    Overall

    It is Pratchett so the story is fun and enjoyable, but and it is a big but the dramatised narration is just plain annoying. It would be very helpful if dramatised narrations were marked with some kind of warning like the abridged versions are. I wish there were a plain version of this audio book. I don't mind the narrators voice, then she isn't making "voices" for the charters. This actually isn't a children's book, it shouldn't have "funny" voices - they are just distracting and take me out of the story.
