Seven Forges | [James A. Moore]

Seven Forges

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.

    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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Just so so"

    Seven forges is a story of two countries kept apart from each other buy a treacherous landscape for generations, whose cultures are vastly different from each other, and their attempt to establish relations. One country is quite civilized and the other is barbaric. It's also a hero's journey for one young man. Dave de Vries narration is either good (never great), or bad, and in this case it's good. I found the story to be very slow and most of the book is about violence and I don’t care for that. I think young teenage boys might like this because of all the fighting.

    "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.
