    Loch is seeking revenge. It would help if she wasn’t in jail. The plan: To steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but is now in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so, Loch - former soldier, former prisoner, and current fugitive - must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shape shifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical war hammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I haven't this much fun with a book in a while. The book is so much fun in not only the quirkiness of the characters but the great story telling as well. The banter between chapters is funny and great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Palace Job?

    Can I just say that it's so hard to nail down just one part because it is non stop from beginning to end.


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is perfect for this book and it's sometimes dry wit which requires good timing. Great read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I found myself sneaking of on breaks at work to listen to it. Not a very productive couple of days there.


    Any additional comments?

    Well writing and we'll read I highly recommend it!

    This latest installment in New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore's beloved fantasy saga, The Companions moves Salvatore's signature hero Drizzt into a new era of the Forgotten Realms. As Drizzt's fate hangs in the balance, he reflects on the lives of the trusted allies who stood by his side throughout his early life - the friends now known as the Companions of the Hall. Meanwhile, the first stirrings of the Sundering begin.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    One of my favorite series of books is The Legend of Drizzt by R.R. Salvatore. Even if you are not a fan of Dungeons and Dragons this epic series is one of the best ever written. If you haven't read any of the books you need to stop here and start with the first book called Homeland. For you fans it is good to see the companions make a come back to be together again. This book does not contain much as far as Drizzt is concerned but it was interesting to see how Mr. Salvatore was going to get Catti-brie, Bruenor, and Regis back from the dead. But all things are possible when the God's step in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Companions?

    I think the separate journeys the three take helps reshapes their lives and exercise some of the demons they had before their deaths. When they finally make their way back to rescue Drizzt the little suprise at the end was a nice touch.


    What does Victor Bevine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have always loved Victor's work in the series because of his ability to capture the raw emotion of the scenes. As he reads I can feel the pain and joy of the characters as they go through their different journeys. Another masterful job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had enough time to sit through it all in one sitting you bet I would.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to the new books coming this year.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Sign of the Unicorn to be better than the print version?

    A great performance to one of my favorite series from one of the best fantasy writers. Any of the young listeners to get to know one of the best writers in America.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Corwin is just the glue that pushes this story along.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tough to pin down just one but I love the interaction between Corwin and Random. Great banter.


    Any additional comments?

    As a young man I spent a great deal of my time reading the Chronicles of Amber. I became Corwin in his Adventures to Amber and into shadow. Sign of the Unicorn points us towards the climax of the chronicles. This reading, sorry, performance is just how it played out in my mind. Great job.
