    Two masters of epic fantasy have combined in this brilliant collaboration to create a rousing tale. This is the story of Shana, a half-breed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father with a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, Shana was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or human kind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Elvenbane?

    Once the story got going, it took me to another place and time which is why I love science fantasy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Shawna the two-legger pounced on Rovey the Dragon. Obviously it was a shock to everyone!


    Any additional comments?

    For me, this book had a very long, slow start and I almost gave up on it. When the foundation for the story was being laid, the Narrator was difficult for me to listen to. There was just something about the way she finished sentences that bothered me. As the plot began unfolding and the characters began interacting, all my issues above went away. I enjoyed the story once it finally got started. I don't believe it to be a terribly unique storyline but entertaining which is all I ask. I will finish the series.

    Story

    Five days ago a rash of bizarre murders swept the country. Senseless. Brutal. Seemingly unconnected. A cop walked into a nursing home and unloaded his weapons on elderly and staff alike. A mass of school shootings. Prison riots of unprecedented brutality. Mind-boggling acts of violence in every state. Four Days Ago the murders increased ten-fold. Three days ago the President addressed the nation and begged for calm and peace. Two days ago the killers began to mobilize. Yesterday all the power went out. Tonight....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because the book captures your interest right away and keeps you there. The plot isn't too predictable so it keeps you guessing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Run?

    There really are several. I thought it got better as it progressed.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    The main character, the wife got on my nerves big time.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had time, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like survival/action type books, you'll like this one. It's completely fictional but still a great listen.
