    When the world was young, and its name was Faerie, the power of magic ruled - and the Elfstones warded the race of Elves and their lands, keeping evil at bay. But when an Elven girl fell hopelessly in love with a Darkling boy of the Void, he carried away more than her heart. Thousands of years later, tumultuous times are upon the world now known as the Four Lands. Users of magic are in conflict with proponents of science. Elves have distanced their society from the other races. The Druid order is threatened.

    What made the experience of listening to Wards of Faerie the most enjoyable?

    it brought back the magic! I like the world he (Terry Brooks) created.
    I wish the remainder of the last series was available on audio book but it is not (Word &Void).


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    she did a good job


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    at times yes to both


    Any additional comments?

    please get the The Word & Void Novels
    •Running with the Demon
    •A Knight of the Word
    •Angel Fire East
    on audio.
    I am having a hard time with my eyes over the years,
    I have difficulty reading

    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    What did you love best about A Clash of Kings?

    the details I originally saw the HBO series which intrigued me,
    but the books are amazing! I just wish that by the time I get to book4 audible has it available for sale, as of right now it is unavailable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the details of all the characters is very good in the books as of yet though I don't have a solid favorite.


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

    the voice acting is very good different accents for the different characters and different dialects as well


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

    hold on to your small clothes it 's going to be a wild ride!


    Any additional comments?

    please get book 4 back on the available list please!
