Celebrated nerd hero Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation; The Big Bang Theory) brings R.A. Salvatore's only Forgotten Realms novella to audio. If Ever They Happened Upon My Lair is a story of the Bloodstone Lands that deals with a contested issue of the Forgotten Realms: the mortality of dragons.

Wil Wheaton does an awesome job of "getting into" the characters in this short story!
This is a handful of generic fantasy tropes wrapped up into an hour and a half of mediocre prose, uninspired characters and cringe worthy dialogue. Have no idea why this was so highly rated. On the plus side, Wil Wheaton is a great reader.
Definitely NOT worth a whole credit.
Another great story by R. A. Salvatore. This story gives some background information on Vaasa and the Bloodstone Lands where the characters Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle have some wonderful adventures.
I love the Fantasy culture but am always hesitant to commit to diving in. Wil Wheaton made this a no brainer. The story is fantastic provided you have at least some background in the fantasy world of dragons and magic. I haven't listened or read any other books in this series but felt right at home with this story.
