Drizzt's is finally breaking with all the familiar trappings and coming to terms that all the old friends and loved ones he found at his side for aid and direction in life are going or gone and he must fine a new reason to live. Of course RS is handling this beautifully and leaves me with nothing but confident optimism and well as anticipation for what lies down the road for my favorite D&D based recurring hero. This books does a beautiful job of expressing the pain of having to move on from a chapter in your life yet transitioning wonderfully as the changing from 3.5 to 4.0 for Forgotton Realms leaves the world that Drizzt lives in ripe for new adventure.
The culmination of this series hurts and yet feels so good. The powerful storm of events coming to a head is done masterfully and narrated with amazing skill.
I loved going through all of this with Vin. Growing, losing, reaching new levels as the world she knows expands around her. The author not only creates an amazing world of mistlings and mistborn(super powered but far from invincible heros/villains) but a truly deep and realistic world for them to inhabit. The narrator does an amazing job of immersing you in it as well.
Sweet golden silk in my ears. This emotional roller coaster of a tale just keeps getting better and better! Can't stop loving this narrator/author combo!
The only complaint I have about this book is how fast the ride seemed to end! Once again the narrator brings to life an amazing book in such a way to surpass and enhance the original medium.
The narrator truly captures and brings to life another merry book in a way that surpasses my memories of the actual book I that I so enjoyed reading in paper format.
A talented author and storyteller join as expertly in this performance as merry does with her many would be kings.
Hilarious, Entertaining, Addicting!
Every Character is flushed and 3 dimensional(which is only showcased and made even more possiable by the incredible narrator's vocal talent and seemingly perfect realization of each different accent and vocal pattern.
If you don't enjoy just about EVERY moment of dialogue with Oberon then you have no funnybone!
Loved every moment of it, this book was a perfect marriage of a deep and promising magic in the real world type book with a narrator who takes a great story and makes you feel like you are right there talking with the whole cast.
I've physically read every book up till this book and the book prior and while I honestly enjoyed the narrators depiction of Anita in the last book while she was away from home now that she is home with her menagerie of men...i want to throttle her(and not in a sexy rough way). She audibly rapes the listeners ears for over half the male cast(and all you long time readers know that the MALE cast has grown significantly). I particularly cringe like it's nails on a chalkboard every time she tries to use "her" Micah voice. She gave him this bad BAAAAAAD attempt at a woman trying to do a stereotypical Scottish accent and it pulled me out of the book like a high speed car impact every time he came into a scene. Love the series and if she's the narrator for the next one then I'm just going to go back to the paper version if I'm going to be able to enjoy it without pain again.
The best long term supernatural lover/killer is back and this time the threat is too close to home...it's bad narration!
