    This is Part One of A Dance With Dragons. The fifth volume in the greatest epic work of the modern age, George R R Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire, this recording is unabridged and split into two parts. The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance. In the east, Daenerys, last scion of House Targaryen, her dragons grown to terrifying maturity, rules as queen of a city built on dust and death, beset by enemies.

    Story

    I have downloaded the series but there does not seem to be a Book 4 in the Audible version.

    It is a great story - love it - very dark though it doesn't really raise much hope for mankind - but it is a great read.

    I'm not sure Roy Dotrice's reading does justice to the characters in the book. His many voiced characters show he is a talented man but when Denarey's part is read I can't visualise a 15-16 year old girl. The characters all sound seedy - was that George Martin's intention?

    Follow up to the bestselling Fallen. In Torment fallen angel Daniel and his mortal love Lucinda think they are safe but evil forces are massing against them. As Luce learns more about her past, and discovers that the lives she’s already lived hold the key to her future happiness; she starts to wonder if Daniel has told her the whole truth. What if his version of events isn’t the way things happened? What if that means that she’s really meant to be with someone else?

    Overall

    This is a series and should clearly be labeled as such. In reading book 2 I am no clearer about the fallen angel and Lucinda than I was when I read Book 1. Series should have a natural build up with substance this is repetitive and I feel I am in limbo. There is a whole history about Daniel and Lucinda - Lucinda is in an special angel offspring school - she is told people have read about their love story for centuries - and what she is not curious to read about it herself and discover more. One thing about Lucinda - she is not very bright...But I've read two - I will read the third and hopefully the last - cross my fingers there will be more substance to the next one..
