    Five hundred years have passed since the devastating demon-led war that tore apart the United States, leaving nothing but scorched and poisoned ruins, and nearly exterminating humankind. Those who escaped the carnage and blight were led to sanctuary by the boy savior known as the Hawk - the gypsy morph. In an idyllic valley, its borders warded by powerful magic against the horrors beyond, humans, Elves, and mutants alike found a place they believed would be their home forever.

    Story
    Where does Bearers of the Black Staff rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Terry Brooks seems to have found his mature voice in this particular story. I've read or listened to all of his books, but for some reason this particular one resonates more with my 60 year old self. Phil Giante is an excellent reader; I listen to this while driving or puttering around the house, which makes this a spoonful of sugar to all of that.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the transition of old world people to magical world beings. It's interesting to look back on old faery tales and think any of those creatures or beings could have been human at one time.

    "Incredibly bad recording"
    Overall

    I had so wanted to listen to what sounded like a wonderful Victorian mystery. Unfortunately, the sound quality was horrifyingly bad. I couldn't even finish it. I was disappointed to say the least.
