Publisher's Summary

A chilling and dark fantasy from bestselling author Raymond E. Feist.

Successful screenwriter Phil Hastings decides to move his family from sunny California to a ramshackle farmhouse in New York State. The idea is to take some time out, relax, and pick up the threads of his career as a novelist. Good plan, bad choice. The place they choose is surrounded by ancient woodland. The house they choose is the centrepoint of a centuries-old evil intent on making its presence felt to intruders.

    Story
    "Boring and sleazy."

    I had just bought the Magician hardcopy and wanting something in addition for the long vacation road trip decided upon this Audible title by the same author. And its terrible. Sleazy at best, my teenage kids in the car asked to have it switched off after a couple of hours. This book was rather a teen love fantasy done badly than an epic fantasy. 20 chapters into the book and we bored to death and disgusted. I'm asking for a refund.

    "I was surprised by this book one of Feists earlies"

    I was surprised by this book, one of Feist's earliest, it was nothing like the Pug ones, but it was worth the credit I can tell you that. I will never think of the fairy folk in the same way again. It is one of the creepiest books I have ever listen to. Forget King and Koontz, the fairies are spookier, it is a very descriptive book, and it makes you think, where did all the stories come from, you know, the Tooth Fairy, the Leprechaun and even Elves, they are all here, but watch out, they are none of them nice.

    "Great Story but...."

    Awful narrator, read this when it first came out and loved it but listening to to the reader was very annoying. He was hesitant and felt like he was reading a childrens story half the time Also some of the words were pronounced wrong!.

    Story
    "great story poorly narrated"
    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Flavin?

    Peter Joyce


    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to all the other Feist books with Peter Joyce, this story isn't given any justice to it's greatness. The narration is stop-start with no real flow. I'm truly disappointed after waiting so long for it to be released.
    Faerie Tale is an excellent story, a stand alone book, with compelling characters and lots of build up to the end of the story that is just lacking with the lack-lustre of the narrators voice.
    Harper Audio should re-record this with a new voice who knows tells a story not just read the words off the page

    "Shame about the performance!"

    I read this book when it came out and wished it would make it in to an audible version. I wish now they hadn't bothered! Such a terrible crime to do this to such a great book. I only finished it because the story itself was worth it! Any chance you could try it again with a better narrator and production team? Such a missed opportunity!

    Superb book by a superb author, gripping and exciting. The story builds from the beginning and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
