    Forge of Darkness takes listeners to Kurald Galain, the warren of Darkness, and tells of a realm whose fate plays a crucial role in the fall of the Malazan Empire and surrounds one of the Malazan world’s most fascinating and powerful characters, Anomander Rake. It’s a conflicted time in Kurald Galain, where Mother Dark reigns above the Tiste people. But this ancient land was once home to many a power...and even death is not quite eternal. The commoners’ great hero, Vatha Urusander, longs for ascendency and Mother Dark’s hand in marriage, but she has taken another Consort, Lord Draconus.

    Would you listen to Forge of Darkness again? Why?

    Steven Erikson is probably the best fantasy writer it has ever been my pleasure to read or listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Forge of Darkness?

    Kadaspala ripping out his own eyes in grief.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anomander Rake meeting Caladan Brood for the first time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It doesn't start how you think it does.


    Any additional comments?

    The audio on this book was recorded far too low. I was straining to hear for over 1/2 the book.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Prince of Thorns the most enjoyable?

    I met Mark Lawrence on Reddit. I read this book because I told him I would. Knowing the author (however obliquely) made listening to it far more of a big deal to me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lawrence doesn't pull punches.


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

    Never heard Clamp before.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    James Clamp did a brililant job with a brilliant book. The voices of the characters were all distinct and memorable.
