Blackstaff: Forgotten Realms: The Wizards, Book 1

Khelben Arunsun, Chosen of Mystra, Archmage of Waterdeep, is as close to a demigod as you're likely to meet on the streets of Faern's mightiest city. But when the skies rain lightning and a long-forgotten city arises from the earth, he can seem like just another wizard.

    Story
    "Author Comments on Audio Version"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend it but that's because it's my book and I'm biased. That said, I wrote this for long-time fans of the Forgotten Realms in hopes they'd enjoy the romp through the secret histories behind the Blackstaff.


    What does Bruce Miles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's interesting hearing my written words read back to me as it changes the tenor of the story for me and I'm less apt to skip parts I'm more familiar with due to that. It's also fascinating to hear how Mr. Miles pronounces and lends weight to particular words or parts of the narrative that I don't expect. In all, a great experience for this author and hopefully for other readers as well.

    Story
    "Could not take the cadence of the narrators voice"
    What would have made Blackstaff better?

    The story itself was not horrible, but the narrators cadence made me think of someone reading a grocery list.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Steven E. Schend? Why or why not?

    Yes if there is another narrator.


    What character would you cut from Blackstaff?

    none
