    People have been telling stories about warriors for as long as they have been telling stories... Our contributors make up an all-star lineup of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres. We asked each of them for the same thing - a story about a warrior. Some chose to write in the genre they’re best known for. Some decided to try something different. You will find warriors of every shape, size, and color here....

    "Short stories from varied genres; sub-par narrator"
    Overall

    Being a fan of short stories and fantasy/sci-fi, I really wanted to like this book. Two things thwarted me in that goal: the editor made an executive decision to include stories from many different genres (to be fair, this could be a positive for some readers), and the male narrator Patrick Lawlor has an annoying, sing-song narration with a limited range of voices.

    If you are a Martin Song of Ice and Fire fan like me, it may be worth a credit to listen to one great story if you can get over Lawlor's irritating voice. Unfortunately, that story was the only one that wowed me.

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    "Roy still the best despite inconsistency"

    Would you listen to A Feast for Crows again? Why?

    Yes, and again and again because it's hard to find novels as well-written, character-driven, and well-narrated as these. I already own Feast for Crows by a different narrator and shamelessly (and immediately) shelled out 2 more credits to have Roy's version. While I do wish that Roy would have kept up the same great consistency of name pronunciation and character voices in Feast For Crows as he did in the previous novels, this version is still far superior to the previous one. The same lack of consistency occurs in Dance of Dragons but is probably due to so much time having passed between the prior novels and these last two.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a lot of audio books, but this series is the one I can't get enough of. Now that the series is on HBO (and well-done), look forward to this storyline becoming water cooler conversation. No worries of wasting credits here.
