I actually started out with book 3 and will be working my way back through this trilogy. John Hough's Narration is outstanding. The story takes so many wonderful twists and turns it's wonderful. Not predictable as many fantasy adventures can be. You'll find yourself cheering the characters along and going along on an emotional roller coaster with them a great way to spend 17 hours of your life!

Like a previous reviewer stated the narration is wonderful!!! However the story is cut off midway and goes into another story about a young lady who wants to be a horse trainer but it definitely isn't the epic fantasy book I purchashed. This story is also cut off to talk about some young guy on a space station creating a holographic fantasy girl who to his surprise ends up assigned to his space station and then even that gets cut off. I wanted a 3 hour story about a girl who heard dragons this is definitely a serious let down:(

This book is wonderful you are immediately captivated by the story. Stephen Hoye's voice is exactly what I hoped for he paints the picture of this story beautifully. I wasn't able to stop listening. This reminds me of people sitting around the radio before the days of television. Just Fantastic!!!
