    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    A total disappointment. Verbose, boring, lacks direction, a poor excuse to take my money. I want a refund. Compared to the other three books this is a disaster of literary proportions.

    The Hugo Award-winning author of the critically acclaimed Coyote returns to the setting of his grand novel of interstellar exploration with the continuing epic of Earth's first space colonists - and a tale of revolution against a repressive government to reclaim their world in the name of freedom...

    What did you love best about Coyote Rising?

    Alternate universe approach


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book although a part of a series can stand alone. I dislike reading a series as it is just a scam to pad weak story lines, draw out the drama and take my money

    For countless millennia, the dwarves of the Fifthling Kingdom have defended the stone gateway into Girdlegard. Many and varied foes have hurled themselves against the portal and died attempting to breach it. No man or beast has ever succeeded. Until now... Abandoned as a child, Tungdil the blacksmith labors contentedly in the Kingdom of Fifthling the only dwarf in a kingdom of men. Although he does not want for friends, Tungdil is very much aware that he is alone - indeed, he has not so much as set eyes on another dwarf. But all that is about to change.

    Drizzt Do’Urden has settled in the windswept towns of Icewind Dale. There, he encounters a young barbarian named Wulfgar, captured in a raid and made the ward of a grizzled dwarf name Bruenor. With Drizzt’s help, Wulfgar will grow from a feral child to a man with the heart of a dwarf, the instincts of a savage, and the soul of a hero. But it will take even more than that to defeat the demonic power of Crenshininbon, the fabled Crystal Shard.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    story is boring, drags, verbose, out dated sentence structure. the narrator is even more boring. i tried to listen to this book at least 5 times - i was asleep by the second chapter consistently

    High in the mountains, deep in the safety of a cave, a brood of dragons is born. The four young ones are among the last of a dying breed---the final hope for dragons' survival. But hope shatters when a murderous group of slave-trading dwarves breaks into the cave, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Only young Auron, a rare scaleless gray dragon, manages to escape.
