I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. I like the different narrator better, and I thought the story was much more emotionally gripping. I was also challenged by the message, and spent some time soul searching about how I would react in similar circumstances. Christian fiction at it's best!
A great light fantasy novel with something for everyone. No need to worry about inappropriate content when listening with children, yet a storyline and characters rich enough to please adults. Far better than the movie that bears its name, this is a classic to treasure and enjoy frequently!
The narrator also does a fantastic job, giving each character a unique voice and filling the book with gentle humor. She is a pleasure to listen to!
A good groundwork for a new series. Enough novelty in the magic system to be intriguing. Characters are a little shallow, but likeable. Hopefully they will gain more depth in the other books. I will continue reading the series to find out!
Well narrated, discernable characters.
A classic, well performed. If you like Agatha Christie, you're sure to enjoy this!
This is a fun take on a classic fairy tale scenario. What happens if the princess isn't interested in waiting around for a prince? What if she has unusual interests and a clever brain? The answer: volunteer for dragon duty! A fun tale for anyone tired of the helpless maiden storyline. It worked to keep the interest of our entire family on a road trip, including a preteen boy!
At first I was wary of this title because of how much shorter it was than the first two books. But my fears proved unfounded, and I thoroughly enjoyed the ending of this trilogy. My one complaint is that there were some loose ends not totally wrapped up, but I'm a fan of long, involved endings (i.e. Lord of the Rings). Great story, though, and great characters with a timely message. Well worth the read!
As I had fully enjoyed the first two books, I looked forward to the final book in this trilogy. I was not disappointed! This continued the wonderfully rich story I was used to with no slowing. I thought it really brought the Arthur myth to life, and the ending left me wishing for more. The only problem I had was the narrator slipped out of voice more often toward the end, which sometimes made it difficult to follow dialogue.
I very much enjoyed this installment in the Pendragon Cycle. Like many others, at the beginning I found the narration very pretentious and stuffy, but toward the end I didn't mind anymore. Not sure if it's because the narrator was slipping out of character or just that I had gotten used to it. However, the story itself was rich and full of depth. I thought it was fascinating how Stephen Lawhead wove together the major conflicting elements in the old legends, and made them a unified whole. Highly recommended!
I thought this was a good story, although I would have enjoyed a little more depth. The major characters were reasonably believable, and the basic premise was a new take on an old theme. As I listened, I found myself taking stock of my own possessions and wanting to lay in a stock of canned goods. I thought the reading was fine, and don't understand the gulping noise some others have commented about. I listened for it and never quite caught it. Overall, a good listen. I will be getting the rest of the series.
I had borrowed and enjoyed the first three Pendragon books a few years ago, and was pleased to find this in the listing for my first Audible download. Although I generally prefer male narrators, I thought Nadia May did a wonderful job with this story. Her rich, throaty voice was appropriate for both male and female characters, and her authentic pronunciations of old Briton words was very welcome. As a Christian, I especially appreciate having an Arthur story that does not villianize Christianity the way so many contemporary tellings do. I also thought the blending of the Arthur and Atlantis stories was very inventive and well laid out. I look forward to getting the rest of the series
