    Story
    "Add another narrator to your list of the best"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Blacksmith's Daughter to be better than the print version?

    The choice of narrator is perfect. She adds depth and drama to the tale.


    What other book might you compare The Blacksmith's Daughter to and why?

    This is a very short story, but belongs with Allan Cole's Timura Trilogy as an exploration of alternative myth and legend. This is Arthurian Legend at its best.


    What about Rosalind Ashford’s performance did you like?

    I don't decipher British accents very well, but Rosalind Ashford speaks all the parts and regional British accents in a way the Americanized ear can decipher. She also has a very pleasant voice, easy to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Maybe Merlin knew this, but King Arthur didn't.


    Any additional comments?

    Allan Cole is a terrific writer, adroit in many genres. He understands myth and legend deeply enough to create with it, making it seem effortless.
