    Right before the wise old wizard Drum Billet died, he passed on his magical staff of power to the newborn eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately, Drum Billet never bothered to check the gender of the newborn baby, and it turns out it was a girl. Now his chauvinistic colleagues are forced to deal with a young girl who has all the qualifications to join their all-male profession.

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

    Great vocal performance of Granny Weatherwax.


    Any additional comments?

    Every now and then in the recording the readers voice echoes heavily and at stages the recording skips paragraphs mid sentence. If there is another recording I would select that instead.

    Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If, like me, you have read the books this is not an enjoyable experience. The narration speed is so slow that I had to play at a faster to to make it bearable. Then the voice started getting a little distorted,... I suggest re-reading the book yourself based on this audio version.


    Has Dragons of Autumn Twilight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Boehmer?

    ???? Don't know
