    "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.

    "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.

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

    Stefan Rudnicki or some one of his capabilitys

    "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.

    "Will read the next"

    Very enjoyable. One big mystery was solved at the end of the story, but I definetely want to know what will happen to the main characters in their new circumstances.

    Listening to stories as I drive to and from work is the best, making the drive a little more tolerable.

    "Capturing story line!"
    Would you listen to The Demon King again? Why?

    I did listen to it twice, it was riveting and gave me lots of enjoyment! I don't usually take the time to write reviews. But I have introduced these books to many of my friends and they have loved them too. So I have the audio and hard backs.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Han because of his strength of character and wanting to do the right thing.

    "Good Story"

    I almost stopped listening to this. I thought the narrator was OK. I was occasionally confused about who was speaking, seemed like men and old women sounded the same at times. I also thought the authors writing style was a bit too 'tell me' but it is a good story with likeable characters. Since I do want to know what happens I guess I'll be buying the next one.

    "Really really good!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Demon King the most enjoyable?

    I rarely write reviews, but I can't stop thinking about these books. The story line is excellent. The narrator is exceptional. I'm almost done with the 2nd book and can't stop listening!
