I have tried other Richard Lee Byers books. Fascinating stories of Thay and Dragonborn. Although the story is a great read, the narration is awful. ..Show More » I had to force my listening through this.... Played video games or did work or whatever else I could do. BEATING!!! Richard Lee Byers made some less than popular areas of Forgotten Realms come to life. If Forgotten Realms narration wasn't dying off, I'd say this needs to be narrated by a much better narrator.
