    Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.

    K. McDowell says: "Pleasantly Surprised."
    "Another great story by Salvatore"

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

    i would absolutely recommend this book to a friend. its intense, full of mystery, suspense, action, adventure, and its well written.


    What did you like best about this story?

    well, i am bias. ive read every other book that has Drizzt and Breunor Battlehammer in it, so the thing i liked best about this story was the battles. the end of Breunor was pretty epic as well.


    Have you listened to any of Victor Bevine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this is the first of Victors performances ive listened to. i liked it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the ending moved me, but thats because a major player in Salvatores books dies, its hard not to be moved by that.

  • A Memory of Light: Wheel of Time, Book 14

    Story
    (4447)

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."
    "Best Ending to any book series ive ever read"

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Memory of Light to be better than the print version?

    its the same, just easier to read on the go


    What other book might you compare A Memory of Light to and why?

    as far as how epic the book is, the only other comparable book is book 6 of the same series. well, maybe book 3 of the dark elf trilogy by R. A. Salvatore.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Paran literally running Hunter down through the dream and in the real world at the same time. i imagined this whole scene in slow motion in my head, probably some of the most powerful imagery of the whole series.


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

    both, many many times. toward the end, i actually had to steel myself after swans death, i knew that there would be a lot of people that ive grown to love that were going to die, but it was still hard.


    Any additional comments?

    i didnt want to see it end, and most endings of other books and series' leave you disappointed and sometimes angry. but robert jordan and brandon sanderson did the most complete job of ending the series without leaving me either. the end wasnt so long that it seemed to drag on, nor was it so brief that you feel robbed for the buildup. it answered the questions regarding what will happen in the here and now, but left the questions of the future right where they belong, unknown. im personally thankful that they didnt attempt to answer the questions about the future of the Aiel, or how Rand and Moridin ended up in opposite bodies. All in all, perfect end to best fantasy fiction out there.
