A Crown Imperilled

The penultimate volume of the mighty Riftwar Cycle. War rages in Midkemia but behind the chaos there is disquieting evidence of dark forces at work. Jim Dasher’s usually infallible intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled; nowhere is safe. He feels that the world is coming apart at the seams and is helpless to protect his nation. Quiet palace coups are underway in Roldem and Rillanon; and King Gregory of the Isles has yet to produce an heir.

Publisher's Summary

The penultimate volume of the mighty Riftwar Cycle. War rages in Midkemia but behind the chaos there is disquieting evidence of dark forces at work. Jim Dasher’s usually infallible intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled; nowhere is safe. He feels that the world is coming apart at the seams and is helpless to protect his nation.

Quiet palace coups are underway in Roldem and Rillanon; and King Gregory of the Isles has yet to produce an heir. In each kingdom a single petty noble has risen from obscurity to threaten the throne.Lord Hal of Crydee and his great friend Ty Hawkins, champion swordsman of the Masters’ Court, are entrusted with the task of smuggling Princess Stephané and her lady-in-waiting, the lovely but mysterious Lady Gabriella, out of Roldem to a place of greater safety. But is there any safe haven to be found?

Meanwhile, Hal’s younger brothers Martin and Brendan are attempting to hold the strategic city of Ylith against an onslaught of Keshian Dog Soldiers, and a mysterious force from beneath the sea. The Kingdom might lose Crydee and recover; but if Ylith falls, all is lost.An unknown player appears to orchestrating these conflicts. Can Pug and the Conclave of Shadows track down this source before Midkemia is destroyed?

    "Awful narration ruined this"
    What would have made A Crown Imperilled better?

    Why did they not stick to Peter Joyce who narrated all the first two books in this trilogy bewilders me. It's jarring, all the pronunciations of characters is not slightly different, but massively. Also the style of narration is flat with no emotion and monotone making it difficult to bother listening too. It may just be bearable if all three in this trilogy were read by the same narrator but to use one for the first two then switch is unfathomable and ruined the whole set for me.


    Would you recommend A Crown Imperilled to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only as book not audio book unless it is narrated by a different person, steer well clear of John Meagher


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narration ruined this, so much so after 1/3 of the book i just gave up and bought the actual book and read it so i could find out what happens in the end of the series.

    "i am so annoyed"
    If you could sum up A Crown Imperilled in three words, what would they be?

    Listened to all the others and Peter Joyce does a good job of narration. Imagine my annoyance to find him gone for the next one. I'm trying to listen to it, but an hour in i want to pull my hair out!


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of John Meagher?

    PETER JOYCE!!

    "Good story, terrible narration."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes the story was enjoyable, but the narration was terrible.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Crown Imperilled?

    The disappointment of listening to John Meagher is all encompassing.


    How could the performance have been better?

    By having Peter Joyce re-record it and erasing this version from history.


    Did A Crown Imperilled inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, write this review to suggest that the story is re-recorded.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep John Meagher well away from narrating fantasy novels.... any novels.

    "The narration is horrendous and flat!"

    Why oh why would they not use Peter Joyce on this book?! This is the third part of a trilogy and I can't even bring myself to finish it because of the narrator. I tried to listen to it for several days and just couldn't handle it.
    Extremely disappointed with it. Not even sure how good the story was as I couldn't complete it.
    If I could give minus stars I would.
