  • FREE: The Jester (A Riyria Chronicles Tale)

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

    I'd never heard of Riyria before, so this was my first introduction. Excellently crafted story. The freebie worked as now I want to read more.

    The "two cities" are Paris in the time of the French Revolution, and London. Dr. Manette, a French physician, having been called in to treat a young peasant and his sister, realizes that they have been cruelly abused by the Marquis de St. Evremonde and his brother. To ensure Dr. Manette's silence, the Marquis has him confined for eighteen years in the Bastille. The doctor has just been released, demented, when the story opens.

    Story

    Having known the basics of the story and not much else I embarked upon this audiobook. It was fairly well read, though some of the character voices were a little grating. Still, the talent to produce so many voices is quite remarkable.
    As to the story itself - astonishing. And I admit I'm a bit of a blubbering mess as I type this, just two minutes after finishing the book. So dang affecting and uplifting. Such a horrible time and place to have lived through. It's a reminder that while there is always darkness and evil in the world, there is also goodness and light, and it is by our own choices that we brighten or darken our lives, the lives of those around us, and the world as a whole.
    Highly recommended.

    Young Cedric Errol lives in poverty in New York with his mother. When his father, who was disinherited for marrying an American, dies, Cedric is summoned to his grandfather's English estate. While the crotchety old Earl planned to transform the boy into a docile, traditional lording, it is Little Lord Fauntleroy who does the converting.

    Story

    I wasn't sure what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't anything this sweet and delightful. While the descriptions of Fauntleroy got a bit overwhelming - he certainly seemed some kind of paragon - it was a lovely little uplifting and kind story.
    The 9-year old boy and I listened to it to and from school. Every time we arrived at our destination he said, "Noooo!" Which is a good indicator that he was enjoying the story.
    The reader was absolutely excellent. A very talented voice actress that really brought the story alive.
    Highly recommended.
