The story was great. A village boy and some others turn into dragon riders to save a land from a troll who is trying to poison them.
When the young dragon Jade gets chastised and then takes off on his own. I was scared for that juvenile wyrm, more than I'd like to admit.
I heard her read Mathias' Crimson and Clover on youtube.
Absolutely. Each chapter ends in a way that compels you to keep going.
This is the second M. R. Mathias audio book I have listened to. In both the narrators use voices for the characters. This is okay but distracting at times. It also lends to the drama and anticipation at times too. Mathias' stories are somehow traditional fantasy yet told in a very refreshing way. I hope all four of his fantasy series make it to audio format.
The action is non-stop and the dragons are awesome!
The narration is tight and her voice sounds familiar as she reads us through the entire trilogy. I cant believe Mathias incorporated the creation of the whales in this. Awesome!
Her voice is smooth
When Crimzon the dragon calls to the elementals for aid.
Listen to all of this series, and the next if they continue.
This is a grand listen. I used to buy from a different audio book retailer, but maybe I will start listening here. This was well narrated and as I read the story (for the 4th time) along with the audio. I once again fell in love with Mathias' characters. I simply can not wait for books two and three of this series to be available. They are my favorite fantasy series of all time.
The characters are so relatable and fallible.
The narrator has clever voices for the witch, the characters, and even the dragon at the end.
The first two times I read it I cried. One of my favorite fantasy characters of all time dies in this book and it is heart wrenching.
Mathias has climbed over a lot of indies on his rise to the top. Expect many of them to be bitter and small. Just listen to the free audio sample and judge for yourself. So many people have an opinion about Mathias, but that is what happens when you get famous.
