Andre Norton is one of my favorite authors, and here she has teamed up with Mercedes Lackey, and created such a rich world of Elves, Wizards, and Dragons as to be totally amazing. I found this book hard to get into at first, because of the detail, but once I got into it, I was hooked. It tells of Dragons in their home lairs, and gives insight into the lives of Dragons as few novels do. It shows High Elves as the haughty overlords they can be, and tells of the Humans caught in their web. It also shows what can happen when Elves and Humans cross blood!!!
I was very much enjoying this book, right up until the point in the story that a juvenile female is being systematically beaten and tortured - repeatedly. It turned my stomach, and the revulsion stayed with me for days. I cannot finish the story, and never will. I really was shocked to discover this brutality in Terry Brooks' series. I am so disappointed.
I have been an avid listener of the Jane Yellow Rock series, but after listening to this combination of supernatural crimefighters, I have bought the C.E. Murphy series, too, and I am looking forward to getting to know JoAnne better. Thanks, Faith Hunter and C.E. Murphy, for doing this combination story. And the narrators did a great job of bringing the characters together. The only reason I subtracted a star is for the audio, which was bad. Khristine Hvam was much louder than Gabra Zackman, and it made for difficult listening, as one was always either too quiet or too loud.
This story kept me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails through the entire story! Faith Hunter pulled out all the stops in this gripping addition to the Jane Yellow Rock series. Wow! And Khristine Hvam did her usual awesome job of bringing the characters to life, giving them incredible personality and emotion in her narration. If you love vampire stories, and you have never listened to the Jane Yellow Rock series, you have no idea what you are missing out on!!! But I highly recommend that you buy Skinwalker, the first story in the series, and get started today!!!
I just love the Iron Druid series. It is witty, and keeps me laughing, especially Oberon's comments. Luke Daniels really brings him to life. I love the interplay with the pantheons, and I appreciate Atticus' views of religion. Overall, it is a really enjoyable series. Luke Daniels does an excellent job in the narration department.
I enjoyed this story. Lots of magic and action. Harry has too many guilt trips for me, though, and I could choke Murphy for always wanting to arrest everyone and drag them downtown behind bars for questioning. James Marsters does a good job of narration, but his quick inhalations hurt my ears sometimes. Still, I now own the next three audiobooks in this series, and I am looking forward to listening to them.
I really enjoyed listening to this story. It has a lot of awesome action, lots of the ancient gods come to life, and the dog kept me in stitches!!! I want another sausage, after that!!! I just downloaded the next two books in the series, and I am looking forward to many more hours of excellent entertainment. Luke Daniels did a great job of narration, too.
I so very much enjoyed listening to these stories. Many of them have been hinted of in other full-length stories, but some of them were little surprise side trips. All of them were awesome. And I loved hearing Faith Hunter's actual voice for the first time. And I would add my thanks to Khristine Hvam for bringing Jane, Bruiser, Leo, and all of the other characters to life.
I enjoyed the Icewind Dale Trilogy, a story of the earliest days of Drizzt's existence above ground. I enjoyed watching the Companions develop their relationships. The story is fast paced, plenty of action. Victor Bevine did a good job of narrating.
This is book 2 of the story of Drizzt, and it did not disappoint me. R A Salvatore writes so much detail into his stories that I can believe I am actually there, watching. Victor Bevine brings the characters to life, and the action is non-stop. Magic flies almost as much as arrows!
I have just fallen in love with Drizzt. He is such an excellent character. There are so many books about Drizzt that it took me a while to find the beginning of the series; however, this is it. You have reached the beginning story. I especially love Drizzt's commentaries on life. Pretty sensitive, for a Drow! lol
If you are looking for a good fantasy series, with Elves, Dwarves, Humans, and all kinds of fantasy creatures, all wielding Magic, and with lots of action, you just can't go wrong with this series. It is the Motherlode. R A Salvatore has created so many excellent books about Drizzt and his companions that it is like an banquet. Victor Bevine does an excellent job of narrating, too. He brings the characters to life for me.
