    "Get ready to be whisked away!"

    I bought this book because I was craving something else narrated by Bianca Amato. I do not usually choose fantasy stories, but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Ms. Amato's voice has such power, such emotion. I loved this book in audio, and highly recommend it.

    "Something different is always good"

    Ms. Carey has crafted a wonderful tale told from a fresh perspective. There are such interesting characters within this tale. A fascinating departure from the norm. I did not know what to expect but, I thought I was in for the conveyor belt of one of the numerous re-hashings of Arthuian tales with a dragon, a wizard, some knights, etc etc. I just purchased this as a mindless diversion for a long plane flight.

    I was very pleasently suprised!

    A new story line for this legend is not so easy to come by. Ms. Carey has crafted something new, with charcters and an adventure that held your interest and a storyline that finishes one part of the tale nicely but, leaves you waiting eagerly the next installment.

    If you are looking for a truly imaginative and entertaining branch of the Pendragon legend it is here your search will end. I actually listened to this twice and was just as entertained the second time as the first. Bravo and thanks for a truly new tale. Now hurry up and publish the next one!

    "Fantastic fantasy"

    A tale exploring the various shades of love and betrayal, Bianca Amato's rich voice evokes images and, eventually, tears. The story can be savored by children and adults alike.

    "Excellent Narrator and Characters"

    I am a fan of Binaca Amator her voice is lyrical and takes me into the characters head and spirit. Dragon's Keep is a good fantasy novel written for teens. The plot is interesting and the book has good character development. However, I felt that the ending was rushed and built on a series quickly written plot devices to produce the ending and conclude the book. I was to say the least disappointed.

    Story
    "Everybody dies"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I could have lived without this book, as it was frequently extremely depressing. I absolutely would not recommend it for a student who is at all prone to melancholia. The story was good, but the was far too much emphasis on people dying, etc. I think the book could have been just as good without all the gore.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Transition of the heroine from a useless princess to a savior.


    What about Bianca Amato’s performance did you like?

    I think Ms. Amato did an admirable job with this book, and it must have been difficult with all the overly gory descriptions. She kept me engrossed when I wasn't fast-forwarding thru that gross parts.

    Story
    "Woe is Me"

    Woe is me that I ever selected this audio book. I had high hopes for the story idea; however, the storyline development is much, much too predictable.. The performance is flat...the intonation never changes--the narrator sounds worried through the entire presentation, but perhaps she was directed to sound that way. I had to really stick with it to get to the end.

    "Amazing!"

    This book is a great anytime book. I read the hard-covor book recently and I loved it so much that I had to get the audiobook. This is a very nice recording of the book and I suggest it to anyone who likes a good story.
