    As anyone who has ever read the books know the story of the Will the Ranger is exciting. The story telling in the story is just as exciting as the story it self.

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Story

    What can I say but, Wow, What an amazing reversal of a great story. Dotrice consistently changes the pronunciation of names through out the book, and changes the voices at a whim. It is sad because the first 3 books of this series he kept it right. The editors and producers of this catastrophe should be ashamed for allowing a horrible audiobook to be released.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    As the story goes it is as many other true epic fantasy stories, it lives up to all who love the stories of unknown worlds and chivalry. Unfortunately as the story telling goes it is only mediocre. The story teller has problems actually telling the story as a true story teller would.

    Time has passed since the apprentice and his master, Will and Halt, led the Araluens to victory against invaders, and Will is now a full-fledged Ranger with his own fief to look after. The fief seems sleepy - boring, even - until the king is poisoned. Joined by his friend Alyss, Will is thrown headfirst into an extraordinary adventure propelled by fears of sorcery, and must determine who is trustworthy to the king and who is trying to take his throne.

    This audio book is exciting, but a little predicable at times. At times the speaker is a little hard to understand, and the book gets a little confusing.

    Ravaged by time and abandoned by the people who once flocked there in search of golden nuggets, Ragged-Ass Gulch is a ghost town. What’s left is a small, proud, and close pack of people who aren’t looking for change. But change seems to be afoot as several mysterious fires plague the town. That’s where the Nameless Detective comes in….

    The renegade outlaw group known as the Outsiders may have been chased from Clonmel, but not before killing Halt's only brother. Now Rangers Halt and Will, along with the young warrior Horace, are in pursuit. The Outsiders have done an effective job of dividing the kingdom into factions and are looking to overtake Araluen. It will take every bit of skill and cunning for the Rangers to survive. Some may not be so lucky.

    This book as alot of large series (More than 3 books), is slightly predictable in that is is to pin point a certain action. But the reader did an excellent job in keeping it exciting and enjoyable.
