"Epic scope…vivid imagination…a significant contribution to the growth of the field of fantasy." (Washington Post)
"Well-written…intelligent…intriguing." (Publishers Weekly)
However there are some editing issues as there are at least 3 paragraphs that are repeated.
A strong beginning followed by a slightly lower tuned ending, is my summation of this novella. Overall i realy enyoy this book but i feel its ending is a bit rushed and abrupt, and lacks propper intrigue. That said it is a marvelous book i whuld say and the characters are very collorfull. I whuld highly recomend it for everyone.
read it again. this book is part of the original set, and takes you through the beginnings of pug's story. you start to relate to the characters from a very young age and watch them grow.
non so far. i haven't followed any other series as much as i have followed this one.
ok. maybe he should steer away from some of his voice overs. i always imagined someone to have a deep voice. but he gave them a high pitched squeaky voice.
always at the end when the royalty are giving rewards
"As Good As Good As I Remembered"
I've read the Rift War books many times over the past 20 years and was worried that a narrator wouldn't match my memory. I had nothing to fear, other than some random pauses which must have happened as part of the mastering process the story was well told.
The story is a proper adventure/quest tale which is well paced and an excellent if too short follow up to Magician. It also sets the scene perfectly for the climax in Darkness at Sethanon.
"A great listen"
Read exceptionally well as before, great story and very enjoyable to listen to. Looking forward to the next installment and the conclusion.
I would not recommend this book; mainly because it is formulaic and badly written; there is a story there, but all the stuff that goes with it is painful!
Every other fantasy fiction which comes out of hero/goblin/magic theme. You need to be an exceptional writer to actually make these books work.
A different narrator may have made a difference. He labours the 'he said'/'she said' parts to the point of suicide!
I think I've said enough!
"Not worth a second hearing"
Narrator does his best with poor material. The story's weak and the narration exposes all the faults in the writing. The constant 'he said, she said' nearly drove me to switch off and the writer needs a dictionary. He used the wrong word on more than one occasion. .Disappointing
Fantastic story as always
Epic adventure well read
Moving in to the next story in the series
only one negative - bizarre pronunciations on some names, but didn't detract from a rivetting story.
I enjoyed this in the car. was very well read and was really well done
"Big fan of feist. peter joyce isnt half bad"
Big fan of feist. peter joyce isnt half bad narratng though I find him much better at 1.25x speed on audible :)
Good follow on from magician , a few edit errors in this recording like a couple of times you hear a repeat of the story but apart from that an excellent narration
more enjoyable than when i read it years ago highly recomended, cant wait for the finale started the download before i finished this, again i wish that somone would make this series in to films
