It can lay low a dragon or heal a wounded warrior. It is the most sought-after magical power in all Faern. And it is in the reluctant hands of Shandril of Highmoon, a young, orphaned kitchen-lass. Now she's on the run from half of the evil sorcerers in the land, not to mention their relentless minions. But with the help of a handsome young wizard, some rough-and-tumble Knights of Myth Drannor, and a certain old mage of Shadowdale, she just might manage to stay alive. At least until tomorrow.

    "Interesting Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Spellfire to be better than the print version?

    I remembered reading this book when I was in High School. A friend of mine loaned it to me, though not being big in the D&D thing, I found it an ok read. I purchased the audio to re-live the fun in the story. It is an adventure novel where the main character, Shandril, gets a lesson in getting more than she bargained for.

    What I didn't remember was how the story gets thick with multiple back stories involving minor characters that interact with the heroine briefly and then usually die. There are so many like sounding names that, at times, became confusing who was friend or foe.

    Take it for what you will, Shandrils' story is good but keep a note pad near to keep the characters straight. And if you like whimpy male character, then you will like her male counterpart, Norm. (Let's just say that his name fits perfectly)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Shandril comes into her own, learning to use her power to attack her enemies.


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

    No, but it moves along well enough to keep me awake during my drive to/from work.


    Any additional comments?

    D&D fans will love it.

    "grab the paperback!"

    I hate to give a great book a bad review,but having read this when I was younger I was looking forward to listening to the audio. Not worth it. the reader is not cut out for this book at all, I couldn't even finish it! pick up the paperback or re read your old copy.
