    Back on the job after an involuntary leave of absence, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch is ready for a challenge. But his first case is a little more than he bargained for. It starts with the body of a Hollywood producer in the trunk of a Rolls-Royce, shot twice in the head at close range - what looks like "trunk music", a Mafia hit.

    Aidan, only child of Brennan and Aileen, and the grandson of Niall, is heir to the Lion Throne of Homana and inheritor, too, of a prophecy carried down through the generations and finally on the verge of fulfillment. But will Aidan, driven as he is by strange visions and portens, prove the weak link in the ages-old prophecy—the Cheysuli who fails to achieve his foretold destiny?

    If you could sum up Flight of the Raven in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting diversion


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This story details a anomaly in the series which makes it more interesting in a lot of ways. By now, you know the prophecy but this books suggests another path--adding to the lure of the entire story line.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    This is an older set but I had already read the books. I honestly enjoyed the audit versions which brought a different dimension to the series. I strongly recommend all of them. I just wish you could get the series as a set from Audible. The is a lot of American Indian allusions to this which adds to the interest/fascination.

    Story
    (8)

    Nearly a century has passed since the Prophecy of the Firstborn was set in motion—the generational quest to recreate the magical race which once held sway in the lands ruled by Homana's Mujar. Now, Kellin, heir to Homana's throne, has only to sire an offspring with an Ihlini woman to reach this goal. But Kellin wants nothing of prophecy, nor even of his own magical heritage. Embittered by tragedy, he refuses the sacred lir-bonding, becoming anathema in the eyes of his Cheysuli kin.

    Where does A Tapestry of Lions rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an older set but I had already read the books. I honestly enjoyed the audit versions which brought a different dimension to the series. I strongly recommend all of them. I just wish you could get the series as a set from Audible. The is a lot of American Indian allusions to this which adds to the interest/fascination.


    What other book might you compare A Tapestry of Lions to and why?

    Again, for the entire set since they go together as one long story line.


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

    Certain emphasis that I might not have placed became more pronounced because of the reading.


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

    No

    Award-winning author Stephen R. Donaldson’s Thomas Covenant books have sold more than 10 million copies. In the third volume of this trilogy, Linden Avery confronts the consequences of using magical power sufficient to wake the Worm, which is capable of destroying the Land. And although the only hope may rest with Linden’s son, the boy could also bring disaster upon everyone.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Against All Things Ending the most enjoyable?

    This book 9 of a 10 book series. The older books are difficult to obtain but are outstanding. This book extends the brilliance of the overall series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The melding of contradictions in life is the central theme of these books. In many ways, the complex nature of the books provides an active mental exercise as well as simply enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Stephan Donaldson spends a great deal of time and energy describing the natural beauty in his world.


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

    This is a thirty hour book. Next to impossible to do in one sitting. Plus, there is a great deal of thought or perspective which makes this a book essential to repeated viewing/listening. I found this was best for a long trip or long commutes. Also the vocabulary is extensive, enjoyable and appropriate. Sorry, too many authors that put in big words because they are large. Here, the vocabulary is appropriately extensive.
