Publisher's Summary

A brilliant mercenary must lead his army against the forces of the most powerful wizard alive

Gifted with courage, strength, and the intelligence to know when to fight, Sun Wolf is the greatest mercenary in a land overrun by war. With his first lieutenant, Starhawk - a woman more deadly than any man - at his side, he has laid waste to countless cities, taking the best of their treasures for himself, and distributing the rest among his bloodthirsty crew.

Then a woman comes to him, an emissary from the town of Mandrigyn, a lush port city recently sacked by a powerful, mad wizard of unmatched abilities. She offers Sun Wolf untold riches for the use of his army, but the captain is not fool enough to wage war against a magician. He refuses her offer, but that is not the end of it. The women of Mandrigyn can be very persuasive.

    "Is it a computer?"
    Where does Ladies of Mandrigyn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The plot of this book is one of my favorites - I'm so glad that Audible is bringing out some of Barbara Hambly's fine fantasies in audio (now where's Time of the Dark!)


    What three words best describe Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

    I found Ms Linden's performance oddly robotic. Each word is so clearly enunciated as to be almost a parody of text-to-speech. She does loosen up a bit later into the book but the pauses before unfamiliar words (Altiokis, Rind, etc.) break up the flow. It's too bad because her voice is pleasantly pitched and nice to listen to.

    "Bad narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better narration!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book.


    What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

    It sounded like there was pause at end of every word. Little less pronunciation and more feeling would have made this better.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Loved the book just not the narration, will not buy any other with Teri Clark Linden as the narrator.

    "Reading so poor, I couldn't listen long"
    Would you try another book from Barbara Hambly and/or Teri Clark Linden?

    Not with this performer!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Don't know.


    What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

    The reading is extremely stilted and robotic. My Garmin has more tone and inflection! It was impossible to listen to.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can't judge the novel, as I didn't listen long enough to judge.

    "Performance needs work...a LOT of work."

    I don't know what audience Teri Clark Linden was aiming for, but it sure as shooting wasn't me. Her slow, hesitant delivery is devoid of any personality or narrative flow. It's like she turned "Ladies of Mandrigyn" into "See Spot Run". She should go back and study the greats, like Barbara Rosenblat and C.J. Critt. Until then, she should stop wasting my time and money, pretending to be a real narrator. Sorry to be harsh, but I take my audiobooks seriously; so should she.
