    "Sooooooo Good!!!!!"

    Excellent story, great characters, I did not want to stop listening. This is more of a YA fantasy, with the main characters being 15 and 16, but there is a lot to keep your attention. This story does not have as much political intrigue as some fantasy so the story moves along quickly. I am going right on to book 2. I am totally hooked.

    "A Great first book!"

    I don’t usually write reviews, but for this book I needed to make an exception!
    I was a little put off at first as the book seemed to have started very slow, I stuck with it though and ended up not being able to stop listening. The character development is awesome you come to truly enjoy being with each character. And when the book ended I rushed to find the next one, only to find it won’t be released on Audio until the End of October. Simply but I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cant wait for the next one.

    "Wonderful Fantasy with Memorable Characters"
    Would you listen to The Demon King again? Why?

    Yes, Always something you miss the first time.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a wonderful fantasy with memorable well developed characters who have their own unique personalities. There is a lot of time shaping the world and politics of the setting. The plot is constructed of several subplots that will at some point diverge together. It is fast paced and still able to deliver intimacy with the characters. I thought of it as a combination of Aladen and Eragon. This book 1 does not end at all but just sets up and stops. You are forced to seek out the next book immediately. I recommend to anyone who enjoys a great fantasy.

    "good book, but didn't like the narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    had a good story, just took a little wile to get into it and get my imagination changing the voices instead of the narrator


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carol Monda?

    Stefan Rudnicki or some one of his capabilitys

    "It was awesome!!!"

    I am 11 years old. I had to read this book for summer reading at my school. It really helped me understand the book as I read it. I made a 100, all 20 points on the AR test. I recommend it because it is a really good story.

    Story
    "Intriguing."

    The demon king is slow to start, but amazing when you get into it. A series of tragities and hope woven into a wonder full story.
    The world, events, culture and even the clothing in this book are amazingly detailed. you know exactly what ever scene looks like.
    The work that went into this book is almost the same as that of Lord of the rings by, J. R. R Tolkien. The writer Obiously knew exatctly what his little world looked like before he ever started writing the thing.

    my only regret was the death of "cuffs" family... but I'm sure it was essential to the plot.

    I'm looking forward to reading the second book in this series!

    "great book"

    it was a great book to listen to. Found this after listening to Flame Caster. The reader was enjoyable to listen to and the story was easy to get into. Fell in love with the characters and their struggles pull at your heart strings. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series

    "pretty slow and predictable"

    This whole book seemed like the first two chapters of another full story. Maybe the rest of the series moves a little faster, but I feel like I knew what was going to happen within the first few hours and it took the entire rest of the book for the rest of the characters to come around. it's an ok start but I didn't find anything that happened particularly exciting. like I said, maybe the next installment would move the story along a bit more, but this seemed almost like a backstory.
