Publisher's Summary

Written in the style and from the inspiration of The Lord of the Rings, "this marvelous fantasy adventure tells of the triumph of the human spirit over the vile forces of fantastic creatures (dragons, griffins, basilisks, trolls, ogres, harpies). Martin's fully-voiced reading of his own wonderful narrative captures the special qualities of each character (the heroes as well as the evil beings). There is an undercurrent of humor in this well-told tale that comes out clearly in this excellent audio presentation. The story centers on the quest of two adolescents to gain the help of the unicorns against the forces of the nasty creatures converging on the kingdom of Ethel. The unicorns refuse to help but the experience of the quest becomes the key that enables the humans to overcome their fear of the horrible creatures they must fight. This presentation is highly recommended."

    "Narration was bit off pace"

    Good fantasy story with some really great characters, however the reading was uneven and at times difficult to follow, which surprised me as it was read by the author. An example: he would end a sentence and begin the next charper in the same breath and I would be lost for a few seconds until I realized we were in a different scene. Also, I found characters' names a bit disconcerting since most of them were "Ethel" something. Fortunately Mr. Martin gave each their own "voice" in the narrative, and that made it easier to distinguish the speaker.
    Loved the trolls!!

    "Flamedragon's Dance"

    I laughed out loud while listening to this story. It is a well-written and subtly tongue-in-cheek with the names used. I look forward to more of Gary Martin's work

    "Really Awful..."

    I am so SORRY I purchased this audio book. The narrator's voice was grating. The plot seemed quite silly, and all the characters are named Ethel-Something. Even the kingdom is named "Ethel..." I'm sorry, I just hated it. I seriously recommend you listen to the sample before buying...This is really bad....

    "Couldn't get through it"

    "Written in the style and from the inspiration of The Lord of the Rings" according to the publisher. Did the publisher read either the Lord of the Rings or this book? I don't think so. The "Ethel-everything" is as annoying as everyone says. I tried to get through it but simply couldn't.
