    Where does Sword-Singer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you havent done so yet you should read my review of Sword Dancer first.
    Before you listen to this one you should listen to that one first.
    You dont have to but when your done with this one you will want to listen to Sword Dancer.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The deepining of Tiger and Dels Relationship.
    The north.
    Jivatmas


    What does Stephen Bel Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His enjoyment of the series.
    He seemed kind of stiff reading Dancer.
    Seems to be more relaxed with Singer.


    Any additional comments?

    Give it a try.
    I dont think you will think it was a waste of a credit.

    He was Tige, born of the desert winds, raised as a slave and winning his freedom by weaving a special kind of magic with a warrior's skill. Now he was an almost legendary sword-dancer, ready to take on any challenge - if the price was right…or if the woman pretty enough. She was Del, born of ice and storm, trained by the greatest of Northern sword masters. Now, her ritual training completed and steeped in the special magic of her own rune sword, she had come South in search of the young brother stolen five years before.

    What made the experience of listening to Sword-Dancer the most enjoyable?

    Ok I agree with other reviewers that Stephen Bel Davies was probably not the best choice.
    He is not horriable though. Look at it like he is reading the story to you.
    I know the book is first person but his voice is not Tigers. Instead of being dissapointed by what is my favorite series,I chose to enjoy it.
    Besides its kind of fun to imagin Del as Catwomen.
    Common now she sounds like Eartha Kitt. lol


    What other book might you compare Sword-Dancer to and why?

    There isnt one.
    If you like a well written story with strong character development and a wonderous world for them to play in. Then give this book a try.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Bel Davies – was your favorite?

    There isnt one
    He dosent kill the book for me.
    He seems to have fun with it and he takes it seriously.
    I listen to tons of audio books ( I have a boring monotous job )
    And their are a lot of performers who dont even try.
    Just because he is not Tiger dosent mean he cant read a good book.
    Hes having fun with Tiger and Del.
    Jennifer Roberson has fun writing Tiger and Del
    For many years I have had fun reading about Tiger and Dels adventures.
    Now im having fun listening to them.
    Keep an open mind and you can also.


    Any additional comments?

    Jennifer Roberson is my favorite author.
    Her ability to paint a picture in your head with her writing is just increadible.
    To me that is one of the most important skill for a writer to have.
    If you like some of these other authors as do I. Then you may want to give this book a try.

    Long ago the gods chose a great hero to act as their agent in the mortal world and to stand against the demonic spawn of Chaos. The gods gifted their champion, Daemron, with three magical Talismans: a sword, a ring, and a crown. But the awesome power at his command corrupted Daemron, turning him from savior to destroyer. Filled with pride, he dared to challenge the gods themselves. Siding with the Chaos spawn, Daemron waged a titanic battle against the Immortals. In the end, Daemron was defeated, the Talismans were lost, and Chaos was sealed off behind the Legacy - a magical barrier the gods sacrificed themselves to create.

    Would you listen to Children of Fire again? Why?

    Yes
    This was a very intresting story
    One of those that you know will just get better the second time around.


    What other book might you compare Children of Fire to and why?

    I would compare this book to old style fantasy sci fi writers from the 70s
    It took me back to the wonder and joy of discovering new worlds and characters for the first time.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recomend this book to anybody who has an appreacition for a well written story,
    intresting characters, an awe inspiring world and explosive situations.
    I cant wait for the next book
