    Twenty-eight florins a month is a huge price to pay for a man to stand between you and the Wild. Twenty-eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern's jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men - or worse, a company of mercenaries - against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder. It takes all the advantages of birth, training, and the luck of the devil to do it.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    There are some authors that are a cut above the rest: Joe Abercrombie, Brent Weeks, George RR Martin, Peter Brett, Pat Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, and Mark Lawrence. With these authors, you can be assured that a pre-order commitment won't turn out to be a waste. The Red Knight solidly places Miles Cameron in that "cut above" category.


    What about Matthew Wolf’s performance did you like?

    Loved his performance. The lead character sounded like Sean Bean from the Lord of the Rings.

    Humanity has been brought to the brink of extinction. Each night the world is overrun by demons - bloodthirsty creatures of nightmare that have been hunting and killing humanity for over 300 years. A scant few hamlets and half-starved city-states are all that remain of a once-proud civilization, and it is only by hiding behind wards, ancient symbols with the power to repel the demons, that anyone has been able to survive.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Great Bazaar to be better than the print version?

    Pete Bradbury takes the story engagement to another level.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Arlen Bales of Tibbit's Brook of course!


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

    At 1hr and 29min, the story isn't too hard to listen to in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I really love how Brett has taken his short stories and published them in book and audio-book form. I think it is something that more authors should consider doing to tide readers over until the next full manuscript is finished. If you haven't listened to The Warded Man and The Desert Spear, grab 'em! They are grade A pieces of fantasy that rival the work of Scott Lynch, Brent Weeks, and Joe Abercrombie.

    When Tudor explorers returned from the New World, they brought back a name out of half-forgotten Viking legend: skraylings. Red-sailed ships followed in the explorers’ wake, bringing Native American goods - and a skrayling ambassador – to London. But what do these seemingly magical beings really want in Elizabeth I’s capital? Mal Catlyn, a down-at-heel swordsman, is appointed to the ambassador’s bodyguard, but assassination attempts are the least of his problems.

    What made the experience of listening to The Alchemist of Souls the most enjoyable?

    Engaging characters, compelling action, a little mystery, and hilarious English slang, a great combination making for a great listen.


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

    Michael Page is amazing. I've listened to seven or eight books he's read and I've not been disappointed yet.


    Any additional comments?

    Really though, there were like more gay men than straight men... I just really don't enjoy listening to a dude talk about how nice an ass another guy has.

    Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

    Story

    I have listened to the three previous books by Brent Weeks and was enthralled by them. They were amazing, so I was pretty excited about The Black Prism. Sadly, this book feels like someone else wrote it. Not only does the book disappoint, the reader is quite a let-down as well. The reader has the tendency to chop off sentence clauses that should be read as a whole and make them sound really choppy. His voice is so-so but after listening to Paul Boehmer do the Night Angel Series, this guy just sounds terrible. The book itself reads like a Brandon Sanderson before he figured out how to write. Way to much focus on the magic system and really shallow and boring characters. I really just don???t see how this could be a Brent Weeks book and I hope he doesn???t write more in this setting [crosses fingers].
