    Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Iron King to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print and think I am glad of it. I like listening better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the cat I can't wait to hear his story; to find out who he really is.


    Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this is my first listen as well as my first review.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    how to survive being a halfling.


    Any additional comments?

    As a rule I do not like first person books; I like to know what all is thinking,. I mean when I listen to the sample I though " oh no first person" but it stayed on my mind and so I went back and both the first book and was hooked. The story line has a lot of cliches but the reader make it live; if I close my eyes when they are fighting my heart starts beating faster.

    A dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER’S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and protecting the Ring. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King’s Legion, he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King’s Court and be taken seriously.

    Kenric of Blackstone is tormented. Not entirely human, he cannot live with his past or with that he truly is. When he is needed to help in a battle that could destroy the Earth, it is Megan who gives him strength, Megan whose kisses heal him.... In a strange land and time, it became clear to Megan Potter why she'd been summoned. This wasn't about Faerie prophecies or wizardry, or even a desperate struggle to find her way home. This was a quest to save a man's heart. And for the first time ever, she felt destined to prevail, because with her help she knew this handsome prince could discover the most powerful magic of all - love.

    Bahzell is no knight in shining armor, and besides he has too many problems of his own to be messing with anybody else's problems - let alone the War God's. Unfortunately, the War God has other ideas for him.

    What made the experience of listening to Oath of Swords the most enjoyable?

    The narrator make the characters individual. I can identify everyone and can almost see what they look like and what they all are capable of. I really like the way they make me laugh the vulnerabilities. The respect is very really. I have gone to sleep and shook my self awake so I can finish a chapter. I really like this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bahzell and his friend that is of a whole other race. He is so funny I like the way he just ride Bahzell. I also like the way the author is making a mystery of his god choice.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes he does. He makes a distinction between each place and person. How they arrived at the place the are. Pasts are explained clearly to let you know why the are the way they are. The revelations of past mistakes are so eye opening it makes me draw breathe. I will be looking for this author again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing. The change of voices makes you know who is speaking and what race they are from.


    Any additional comments?

    Well he could not give so much description of landscape and more romance.
