    Before the Great Wars and the Old Race of Man, there was a world populated by different beings: elves, demons, faeries, and the like. The Elves and the Demons constantly fought each other, until the Elves finally imprisoned them with the enchanted tree called the Ellcrys. Thousands of years later the Ellcrys still survives and still keeps the Demons imprisoned within the Spell of Forbidding, but not for much longer, the Ellcrys is dying.

    Kazgoroth, the Beast, has come into the world to destroy the power of the Earthmother. Changing its shape as needs be, the Beast goes across the island of Gwynneth, corrupting everything in its way. Its destination is a large gathering of Northmen raiders at Oman's Isle, in the middle of the Moonshaes, where they are preparing an assault on the kingdom of Corwell. The Northmen don't realize yet that this is going to be more than just a plundering raid.

    What did you like best about Darkwalker on Moonshae? What did you like least?

    The story was good and entertaining.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Douglas Niles? Why or why not?

    Yes I would be willing, but not with the same narrator. The story was compelling enough so that I want to continue the series, but I cannot listen to that narrator again.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dara Rosenberg’s performances?

    Never


    Do you think Darkwalker on Moonshae needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, but it needs to be read by another person.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope someone realizes how awful the performance was. The sound quality was terrible. There were moments when she sounded like she was in a tunnel, and then a second later had the mic too close to her mouth. Her starts and stops were distracting and frankly aggravating. I bought both the first and second novel on the same order, and I wish I hadn't done that because the narrator was so bad I will not listen to the second book.
