    "Wonderful reading"

    Mr. Prebble finished this trilogy with his beautifully modulated reading and dramatic timing. Thank you Audiobooks for recording one of my favorite fantasy books. Highly recommended.

    "Best Series I've Ever Read!"

    Once again Patricia A. McKillip has delivered an excellent story! Thankfully, this time it was read by Simon Prebble, reader of The Riddle Master of Hed. Excellent book and excellent narrator!

    "Awesome story"
    What made the experience of listening to Harpist in The Wind the most enjoyable?

    In the timeless storyline of mans struggle with change, this story ties the standard with Tolkien. I first read the series in '87, and marveled at the story line then. I discovered it as a audible and quickly bought the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Continous action


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    Well spoken, good pitch,


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The same as the trilogy from Doubleday books..."the Stars of Hed"

    "Stunningly good"

    Patricia McKillip's trilogy is one of the best fantasy novels/series I've ever read. But listening to it on audio is even better. It is a literary quality series on par with the Earthsea Trilogy by Leguin, Tolkein, or the works of Guy Gavriel Kay. If you like these writers, you'll love this book. Start with Riddlemaster of Hed, then Heir of Sea and Fire, and finish with Harpist in the Wind. It is an incredible writing achievement. Enjoy.

    "The Riddlemaster Trilogy is my all-time favorite!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend this trilogy to anyone that is a fan of the fantasy genre. It tells a wonderful story of destiny, loss, mystery, and incredible power.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the world that the author created. It feels very middle age Irish/ Scottish/ English. The land is split up into multiple kingdoms governed by rulers who are thousands of years old and have a mystical binding with their land.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when the hero finally learns what his destiny is has to be one of my favorite moments in any book. Deeply satisfying.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I almost did.
