Two thousand years ago, the dwarf Albrek went looking for new mines in the land of Thraxon in the hopes of becoming rich - and vanished. Now the dwarves must find Albrek's magical Ring of Searching before their mines run dry, a possibility which threatens the livelihood of the entire dwarf realm. Alexander Taylor joins a familiar company of adventurers on a quest to discover what happened to Albrek, find his mythical tomb, and locate the lost talisman. But finding the ring may be the least of the adventurers' problems once they cross paths with an ancient, wandering paladin, Bane, who warns of a great evil working in all of the known lands. Following in Albrek's footsteps, Alex and his friends travel to the haunted Isle of Bones, where a mysterious creature lurks in a deserted village, to the cursed city of Neplee, where the dwarfs are hunted by the undead hellerash, and through the shadow of an empty oracle's tower, where a whispered legend is about to come true.

I haven't read the print version. I've enjoyed the story, which is clearly written for a younger audience, but still with a very good and imaginative story. But I really had a hard time listening to the narration as every time E.B. Stevens spoke for the main character, he stuttered a bit, or hesitated, or sounded as if he wanted him to sound humble. It drove me crazy, like waiting for a drop of water to fall on my mind. I don't think I can finish listening although I did deal with it in the first two....but can't overlook it this time.
yes, I have
book 3 has to be the dragon
lol. Still the dragon
I have used this and the other two in the car to listen to as I drive my little cousin's around. And they love it, I hope the rest of the series is picked up. It's too great of a reading, and a series to stop at 3.
