I love this series, and Stasheff's sister series' as well. The writing, storytelling, etc was the most enjoyable for me.
I suppose there are some similarities to the Dresden Files, for a modern choice. The same premises abide in both, lead character thrust into dangerous situations partly of their own devising.
I was a bit surprised that this was done in a multi person/radio drama sort of style when it wasn't billed that way. Dennis Regan isn't a bad narrator, but it lacked some of the depth that the old cassette recordings had. I think probably crediting the other voice actors would be nice unless Regan really does do a soprano.
Well, obviously since this comes from the D & D creative pattern it's fairly similar to some of the Icewind Dale and other Drizzt novels in it's lay out and general themes.
I'm currently listening to another audiobook he's done in this series, I think for the story he's a perfect fit. I wouldn't for example advise he do any of the Discworld books, but this sort of story is great.
Malthooz's death, I kept hoping someone would be able to heal him so that they could go off on a new adventure especially with his potential abilities....but no.
