    Story
    (85)

    The year is 1348. Thomas, a disgraced knight, has found a young girl alone in a dead Norman village. An orphan of the Black Death, and an almost unnerving picture of innocence, she tells Thomas that plague is only part of a larger cataclysm - that the fallen angels under Lucifer are rising in a second war on heaven, and that the world of men has fallen behind the lines of conflict. Is it delirium or is it faith? She believes she has seen the angels of God. She believes the righteous dead speak to her in dreams. And now she has convinced the faithless Thomas to shepherd her across a depraved landscape to Avignon.

    Story

    This is now among my favorite stories. The story moves along well from the very beginning. The author builds the characters throughout the story but I fell in love with the main characters from the start. The story starts out interesting enough, but as it moves along the changes drew me in. I was pleasantly suprised throughout the story as the author continued to challenge me to try to guess what he had in store next.
    The narration and editing are excellent.

    I highly recommend this book.

    Story

    Goodkind takes his time building the story, which requires some patients. The story and characters are worth the wait. I am typically not patient in my reading, but my past experience with the author assured me the story would be worth the wait. In the end, I wasn't dissapointed. I would rate this among my favorite stories, but it was well worth the read.
    There were a few problems with the editing and the narrator changes voice inapproprately a few times but overall it isn't much of a distraction from the story.

    On Jeroun, there is no question as to whether God exists - only what his intentions are. Under the looming judgment of Adrash and his ultimate weapon - a string of spinning spheres beside the moon known as The Needle - warring factions of white and black suits prove their opposition to the orbiting god with the great fighting tournament of Danoor, on the far side of Jeroun's only inhabitable continent.

    Story

    I was dissappointed when I learned this book could not be returned. This was the first book from Audible that I tried to use the return policy to reject.
    Other than the fact that the book was about as exciting as packing my lunch in the morning, some of the ideas are perverse. I'm no prude but when the "goddess" character started masterbating with her Hand Tongue to spit out pearls of god spunk, I shut the book off. The story wasn't worth continuing past that point.
