    Gregor is summoned back to the Underland by the terms of a second prophecy. Spies have reported the sighting of a Rat King, a character who has been legendary since the Middle Ages. Recognizable by its tremendous size and snow-white coat, the Rat King is destined to bring a World War to the Underland. Gregor eventually comes face to face with the Rat King, and to his surprise, he finds he is unable to kill this creature. His heart tells him he's making the right decision.

    If you could sum up Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane in three words, what would they be?

    Unique Fantasy Underworld


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story takes off with action almost right from the beginning. You learn more about Underworld and the inhabitants. The story takes interesting and surprising twists.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    Paul really grows on you. He is more enjoyable to listen to the more I listen and come to expect some of his inflections.


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

    I don't listen for long sessions but you could easily listen in one session.


    Any additional comments?

    So far I like this series even better than the hunger games. Glad I tried it.

    Four decades after the Oblivion Crisis, Tamriel is threatened anew by an ancient and all-consuming evil. It is Umbriel, a floating city that casts a terrifying shadow-for wherever it falls, people die and rise again. And it is in Umbriel's shadow that a great adventure begins and a group of unlikely heroes meet. A legendary prince with a secret. A spy on the trail of a vast conspiracy. A mage obsessed with his desire for revenge. And Annaïg, a young girl in whose hands the fate of Tamriel may rest.

    Would you try another book from Greg Keyes and/or Michael Page?

    Yes


    Would you be willing to try another book from Greg Keyes? Why or why not?

    Yes, its was a good story.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Page – was your favorite?

    Hmmmm, not sure but I would say in general he did a good job. Took a little getting used to since I hadn't hear him before but as usual once you get used to him, he sounds fine.


    Could you see The Infernal City being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really, it would probably be cheesy.


    Any additional comments?

    This book felt rushed. The story changed very fast at times. I think if the author was given the time, it could have been really good. Or thats my guess. Otherwise they are just bad at transitions? So it is stuck at just good or decent.

    It was not what I expected. I expected a generic story with elder scrolls lore. The story was actually fairly unique for a fantasy book. It almost sort of reminded me of gregor the overlander at times. So i liked it for being fairly original.

    I am playing skyrim for the second time and can't wait for elder scrolls online game so I decided to listen to the books. I do plan to listen to the next book.

    If you like elder scrolls stuff, this is a good read. If not, its an ok read.

    Would you try another book from Diana Wynne Jones and/or Jenny Sterlin?

    Would you recommend Howl's Moving Castle to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only to certain friends, which make sense we are all different.

    Howl


    Did Howl's Moving Castle inspire you to do anything?

    It does provoke some thought.

    It is a cool story in general and there is a disney movie made from it. Some of the fantasy ideas were sort of done in a different way.

    Many are the mysteries surrounding the Emerald Dream and its reclusive guardians, the green dragonflight. In times past, druids have entered the Dream to monitor the ebb and flow of life on Azeroth in their never-ending quest to maintain the delicate balance of nature.

    I could only make it half way through. Some might struggle through it for the lore, but i wish i had never wasted my money and time on it. It reads like an old encyclopedia. I love playing the game, but this was more torture than the worst reputation grind in the game :D
