    Six years had passed since the redoubtable knight Sparhawk had triumphed over the evil God Azash and returned to Elenia with Queen Ehlana, his bride. And now a new danger had arisen to threaten the peace of Ehlana's realm. The trouble had started quietly. At home, bandits began to plague the hill country. In neighboring Lamorkand, the customary political unrest turned ominous with whispers that the bloody heroes of old soon would rise again.

    What made the experience of listening to Domes of Fire the most enjoyable?

    I already own the book, so enjoy the story


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the interaction between the characters


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator could have listened to previous narration - so pronucation of names would be similar and could have made the characters sound more mature ..Sparhawk and his fellow knights sounded like young men instead of seasoned warriors...


    Any additional comments?

    I wish publishing companies would try to keep the same narrator for a series or at least make sure each narrator pronouces names the same way

    Sparhawk, the Pandion Knight and Queen's Champion, returns from a long spell of exile to find his native land overrun with evil and intrigue, and his young Queen grievously ill. Indeed, Ehlana lies magically entombed within a block of crystal, doomed to die unless a cure can be found within a year.

    Bryan J. Peterson says: "Quirky pronunciations but overall a worthy job."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Diamond Throne to be better than the print version?

    No, the audio edition would have been better with a different narrator..the narrator made Flute sound like an old women instead of a young girl and i didnt like the way he pronouced Sparhawk's name or any of the names..every time he mentioned a named, it would draw me out of the story


    What did you like best about this story?

    i love the story itself, i have read the story several times..its one of mine favorites - that is the main reason i purchased it in audio


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Greg Abby?

    No, there was no really differentiation in the character's voices..


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

    yes, love the story but the narration was okay - would have been better if Mr. Abby was able to show each character's personality more

    What made the experience of listening to The Guardian the most enjoyable?

    The story line - like romance and fantsy - sex scenes not overdone


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Guardian?

    Enjoyed the whole story


    What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

    Loved the way he presented Eoin Thral's - loved to him said JUDE SHEA


    Who was the most memorable character of The Guardian and why?

    Eoin Thral - he seemed to be content with being alone - but like most he wanted someone special - someone to care for him


    Any additional comments?

    This is mine first time purchasing books/audio in this genre and have truly enjoyed the stories. I have also purchased the following books by Mary Calmes: Timing and Change of Heart. I like romance stories when the story is more about the plot and not the sex scene. I have also purchased stories by the following authors: Jamie Craig, Christine Price and Josh Lanyon.
