    Story

    Amidst the decaying splendor and poisonous intrigue of Chalion's ancient capital, Cazaril is forced to confront not only powerful enemies but also the malignant curse that clings to the royal household, trapping him, flesh and soul, in a maze of demonic paradox, damnation, and death for as long as he dares walk the five-fold pathway of the gods.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Curse of Chalion the most enjoyable?

    I had to stop listening to Lloyd James's performance one quarter of the way through, but the story was so good I bought the book to read it myself. He pauses where there is no reason, then starts up again to finish the sentence. Half of his characters have strange stutters and stammers and throat clearing. He seems to have no idea what he's reading, he just likes hearing himself.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lloyd James’s performances?

    I will never try another performance by him.


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

    I had to force myself to listen to him because the story is terrific. I had to stop listening because his performance was distracting me from the story.
