    "5 Star Story, 4 Star Performance"

    I read this entire series back when it first came out on paperback. When I saw it on Audible I had to get it. I was a bit disappointed that Amazon WhisperSync isn't yet available for the first two books.

    While I found the narrator pleasant to listen too, there were a couple of issues that were a little distracting. There were a few words that the narrator consistently mispronounced. For example, "rudder," the big flap at the rear of a ship, is not pronounced, "rooder." That's the one that sticks out in my memory because a significant part of the story was set onboard a sailing vessel.

    There were also a few places where the wrong word was given emphasis, totally flipping the meaning of the word pair. One that comes to mind is, "Drow hunter." In this book, that term is used to refer to one of the primary Drow characters when they were searching for, tracking, or sneaking up on one of the other characters, as in a hunter who is a Drow, or a Drow who is hunting. The narrator usually made it sound as if it was referring to a person, or creature that hunted Drow.

    And finally, there were a few places where the recording quality changes dramatically for a few words. It sounded as if the majority of the recording was done in a home studio with mid to high end consumer grade equipment, and for some reason a sentence or two would be rerecorded in a professional studio on professional recording equipment.

    These quirks combined made me deduct a star.

    "story line is great.... the reader ..."

    story is great if you are into the drow stories. not only that but it gives another drow life away from the underdark, makes you wonder where the story could go with "little raven"

    Story
    "One of the Best Forgotten Realm's Books"

    Tangled Webs is Elaine Cunningham at her best here in Tangled Web. The story takes full advantage of the rich Forgotten Realms setting and crafts a tale with plenty of action, character development, plot twists, excitement and even a dash of humor. This is the sort of fun fantasy book that you just can't put down.

    Tangled Webs builds off the excellent Daughter of the Drow and turns everything up to 11. One half a road trip by sea and one half a intrigue plot the book keeps you guess and the story moving. The new villains and supporting characters are great increasing the stakes to their highest yet. Liriel and her companion continue to be great characters. As a protagonist Liriel continue to be a delight with her flippant attitude, love of life and proactive willingness to confront her foes rather than wait to be attacking like most heroes.

    Once again the audio quality is the only really negative here. While the reading is better than the first the recording quality and editing are really terrible and need to be brought up the level that this novel deserves.
