Publisher's Summary

The Seven Forges are a range of impassable mountains, far to the north of the settled lands of Fellein. From time to time explorers venture up beyond the Blasted Lands in search of a way over them and the promise of legendary riches, but without success. Now Captain Merros Dulver has found a path, and encountered, at last, the half-forgotten people who dwell there. And it would appear they were expecting him.

    "not very engaging"

    the story just doesn't pull me in. I'm a stay at home mom, and use audio books to keep my brain entertained while I do mundane hoysework. with this book, i will be going about my day, and realize much of the narrative had passed, and none of it really registered. I feel nothing for the characters, and only vague curiosity about the events swirling around them. if I hadn't already accidentally bought the second book in the series, I wouldn't have bothered to finish this one.

    Story
    "THE GODS HAD DIFFERENT IDEAS"

    LIFE IS PAIN
    At times I was really into this and at times my mind was elsewhere. The book starts with a bang and got me excited for the rest. The biggest problem for me was keeping up with where the story was taking place. A character might be, what I thought was several days away in another area and the next paragraph he is with characters who were days away. The concept was excellent. Two peoples who have been separated for 1,000 years, suddenly find each other. In one culture, men and women are tough. They learn from an early age how to fend for themselves. They are all heavily muscled and trained in multiple weapons. Women are equal to men in combat and knowing how to survive under tough conditions. The other culture has gone soft and women are pretty helpless things. I am not sure if I will continue this series.

    "Seven Forges"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the introductions of the characters and the understanding of who they are and their motivations. And there is mystery in the Sa'ba Taalor in wondering what is behind their viels and why they keep their faces hidden. And I like the way they are developed as more than brute warriors with the other aspects of their skills.


    What about David de Vries’s performance did you like?

    Mr. de Vries did an excellent job in voicing the various characters and employing the different accents. The female characters were believeable with his vocal range and he was enjoyable to listen to.

    "Solid beginning and 4-star effort.."
    Where does Seven Forges rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranked fairly well in comparison to my other favored books. I WILL be getting the next book in the series as it promises to only get better from this point on. This book only suffers to "first book" syndrome as i call it... character introductions, world introduction, mythology, and story building. All in all this book, in my opinion, would have done better with an additional 50 pages or so for further character development...solid start though.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The smiths apprentice. i will not say more as to not put any spoilers here.


    Have you listened to any of David de Vries’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of his other performances yet but he did a good job varying accents, male and female voices, etc, to produce an enjoyable tale with recognizable characters based on his voice. very well done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. it was not meant to make one laugh or cry.


    Any additional comments?

    A solid first installment with grimpses of greatness possible for future volumes.

    I'm an LMT originally from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. I lived in NYC off and on for 15 years. I decided I had enough of long cold winters so summer of 2012 I relocated and now live in sunny Sarasota FL and loving every moment of it. My favorite thing to do is lay on the beach all day long listening to the waves and a great audible book.

    Story
    "Great Foundation for the Sequel"
    Where does Seven Forges rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one has interested me enough to get the sequel ( I hope there is a sequel coming).

    The first three quarters of the book was by no means slow but still I was wondering where this is all going. It was all spent building a strong foundation for the characters, for the next in the series.
    A little bit predictable at times, as each scene unfolded. All very political and as diplomatic as possible, considering the circumstances of 2 civilizations that thrived for a thousand years with very different rules, customs, practices and beliefs. The reward was in the last quarter of the story.

    The last quarter the story took such an unexpected turn. As events started to almost simultaneously occur, all things predictable was gone and the book ended in a series of cliffhangers and with the promise of a very unpredictable, action packed and magical sequel.

    I hope there is a sequel really soon.


    Would you recommend Seven Forges to your friends? Why or why not?

    Absolutely would recommend it but I may have to wait for news of the sequel. Nobody likes to be left hanging.


    Which character – as performed by David de Vries – was your favorite?

    Suvek.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing in particular stands out. There were a few moments of jesting which was funny and made me chuckle.

    "Excellent first book in series."

    I did not know what to expect from this book. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted. I have listened to the narrator from other series, and he is fantastic as well. I highly recommend this book.

    "A slow start"

    I started to listen to this after finishing Angus Watson Reign of Iron and I was seriously considering not listen to it all the way. But I hanged on to it and I don't regret doing it. The people and the story didn't engage in the beginning but I found myself not being able to stop listening after about half the novel. I even went straight in to buy the second novel in this triology and after finishing this review I will start listening to it too.

    I stand working all day. My only escape is the book I listen to. I do not even remember writing half of my reviews. They seem too absurd.

    Story
    "Interesting world with a variety of characters."
    What did you love best about Seven Forges?

    I did enjoy the world. It was interesting to say the least, it maintains an aura of mystery that can keep you wanting to learn more. I assume the sequel will reveal more.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    There is one character who I find to be annoying. He just seems dumb and cannot understand a thing told to him, questions every action taken by every character. Perhaps the character is there to help the reader understand the world, but it makes him irritating.


    Which character – as performed by David de Vries – was your favorite?

    The wizard was pretty cash, he had this old people voice that made him sound like an old wizard man.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Towards the end stuff happened, not emotional but it was a turning point.


    Any additional comments?

    I would say this book is worth a read, not the best thing ever, but it is entertaining. I am curious as to what the next book contains, but it is not a priority. I will pick it up if I cannot find anything else to read.
