    The best stories pull readers in and keep them turning the pages, eager to discover more—to find the answer to the question: "And then what happened?" The true hallmark of great literature is great imagination, and as Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio prove with this outstanding collection, when it comes to great fiction, all genres are equal.

    The Mechanics and the Mages have been bitter rivals, agreeing only on the need to keep the world they rule from changing. But now a Storm approaches, one that could sweep away everything humans have built. Only one person has any chance of uniting enough of Dematr behind her to stop the Storm, but the Great Guilds and many others will stop at nothing to defeat her.

    Would you listen to The Dragons of Dorcastle again? Why?

    Yes, was well written as to where one would like to read again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Main characters they were like so real. When they fell in Love.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    I really like the way it was read, he did great. Liked the way he put stern, laughter for me, all the moods & feelings where were needed.


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

    Yes Laugh, at times, & yes wanted to cry when they had to part.


    Any additional comments?

    It is really hard for me to find a good Narrator in a book, even if I think will like it, I hear them start & do listen a good while, but then do not listen any more. You have to like who reads as much as who wrote a book.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    All of R.A. Salvatore, so far are awesome. There have been a few was not grabbed by.
    I have told friends & so far the few they have read they like very much.
    The Narrator, Victor Bevine, is great he does the voices perfect; some of the books did not have him, & was disappointing, was use to how he pronounced everyone's name & well I started off listening to him so some were not as good in the narrator part. I did listen to them any way. I have listened to lost count, & will get to writing a review, but I give them stars for now, I am from one to the other. I am retired so I sit at the pool, or outside around the place, & listen as I walk or travel in the car even.
    I Love the books.

    An uneasy peace between the dwarves of Mithral Hall and the orcs of the newly established Kingdom of Many-Arrows can't last long. The orc tribes united under Obould begin to fight each other, and Bruenor is determined to finish the war that nearly killed him and almost destroyed everything he's worked to build. But it will take more than swords and axes to bring a lasting peace to the Spine of the World.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    this one was ok, not as good as the ones before, & then got to book 2 & was a wash out. Am returning 1 & 2. Now # 1 was ok but 2 went off so messed it up for ones to come.


    What was most disappointing about R.A. Salvatore’s story?

    Have gotten hooked on his books but these got off track of what I had been reading, or listening to.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Victor Bevine’s performances?

    I really like him a lot, he has been with but these & I guess miss him doing it.

    In the 2nd book of the multi-author Sundering series launched by New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, the shadow legacy of Erevis Cale lives on even as his old foe Mephistopheles seeks to stamp it out at any cost. Cale’s son Vasen - unmoored in time by the god Mask - has thus far been shielded from the archdevil’s dark schemes, alone among the servants of the Lord of Light who have raised him since birth. Living in a remote abbey nestled among the Thunder Peaks of Sembia, Vasen is haunted by dreams of his father, trapped in the frozen hell of Cania.

    An ordinary parking lot in southern California. Christine Scavello and her six-year-old son are accosted by a strange old woman. "I know who you are," the woman snaps at the boy. "I know what you are." A scream, a threat - and then a grotesque act of violence. Suddenly Christine's pride and joy, her only son, is targeted by a group of religious fanatics. They've branded him the Antichrist. They want to kill him. And they are everywhere.

    What did you love best about The Servants of Twilight?

    It was well written, I enjoyed very much, kept me interested to the end. Narrator was good, did have a little trouble with a few of the voices, but well read. Was not sure about the boy joie, was hoping would be fine in the end. His Mom & the detective were in good form for the story, all charters were. Kept me on the edge wanting more.

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.
