loved this book but found myself skipping chapters with Gilthas in it because the plot surrounding him was absolutely boring and I kept falling Asleep. don't get me wrong I tried to push through the chapters and even skipped ahead, but they were so dry or maybe I was Just too tired :-/. However the chapters with Dalamar, Palin, Tass , Garard, Medan, or Goldmoon were fantastic.
This story has kept me going through the first two books at a hurried pace. the writer is fantastic at storytelling and the story keeps wrapping itself deeper and deeper along itself
Change the narrator - the reading of the text is terrible.
Poor narration. Okay story.
The reading of the text was abysmal. Constant incorrect pronunciations and simply misread words... examples: liches should be pronounced lih-Chez, but she read it as lik-Es. Another instance the word was immortality, and the narrator read it as immorality, in spite of the context. Finally, the name Majere is pronounced mah-Zheer, but the narrator constantly reads it as ma-Jeer-ey. It's pretty bad.
See my review for Book 1.
I would like my money back on this series.
Glad the original writers came back after the Dhamon Saga books. They did a good job on blending in new characters with the old favorite characters which started it all rather than forcing the new characters down your throat which is how I felt with the Dhamon Saga books.
Marieve Herington should never try to read an epic. Mispronouncing the names of the characters that I have come to love in the Dragon lance stories is an irritant worse than a sore tooth. Makes what would be as wonderful a book as the others from Weis and Hickman unbearable to listen to.
loved her reading of the fire rose but I will not waste time and money to here her read series books
