In the land of Theugua, where people still whisper of the ancient tales of old, a young bard practices with his famous master. In this ancient land, people called bards exist; warriors that can cast magic using their musical instruments. This land is full of legends, but they are nothing more than tales aimed to frighten the young, or entertain the old. But Ornsell, a simple man in everything but his soul, couldn't have known that those tales where coming back to life and that one of them was hunting him that very morning.

Another Epic Fantasy Adventure joins the ranks as Blaine Hart pens The Bard’s Tale: A Mysterious Journey. Within the tale in this book we have witches, fairies, magical animals, wizards all found in a mystical realm from Hart’s imagination. In this wel-written story as we follow Vygarast, the hero as he battles creatures and monsters while seeking out a mysterious Owl Wizard who can save his father. As in any epic fantasy adventure the protagonist is helped and hindered by other characters in his journey. It is a journey that you want to complete in one sitting, putting down this book is nye on impossible.

On the far western outposts of Queen Anastasias' Nine Realms, the evil bone dragon Visalth, in league with a mysterious army of brigands, is laying waste to the island strongholds. The undead horror is drawing near to the heart of the realm, leaving nothing but death and destruction in its wake. But there is cunning beyond simple magic in these onslaughts. Right before any battle begins, the wizards, mages and clerics protecting the lands suddenly disappear.

What made the experience of listening to Epic Fantasy Adventure: The Angel's Blessing the most enjoyable?

The Angel’s Blessing is a book one does not put down. Once you immerse yourself in it you are held captive until the end, just like Wendfala. The author’s imagination carries you away into another realm, a realm of swords and sorcery, dragons and battles created within Blaine Hart’s vivid imagination. If you are a fan of Fantasy and Adventure this one is sure to please.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Epic Fantasy Adventure: The Angel's Blessing?

The author's descriptive language which brought the book alive for me.

What does Jason Damron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His enthusiasm is evident in his voice. He enjoyed the story and making it come alive.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Most definitely

What did you love best about Cycling: Bicycling Made Easy?

I wanted to get back into cycling since we live in the country with bike trails and roads to explore. It has been many years and I wanted a basic resource for information about cycling, so I could read up on the sport. I listened to the samples of several books and this one seemed to fit all my criteria: good information, credible sources, a good narrator who would be easy to listen to and an author who knows his stuff! Let me tell you, the author definitely knows his stuff. This book was excellent, it took me from the basics of cycling into more advanced knowledge. This book has become my go to source. I have also purchased a hard copy version so I have it with me, earmarked and highlighted for my own knowledge.

What other book might you compare Cycling: Bicycling Made Easy to and why?

I was not comparing it to other books

Have you listened to any of Joshua Mackey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, it was just as good.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Cycling: Bicycling Made Easy?

Where does Massage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Massage ranks up near the top in the nonfiction books I have read. I was very impressed by the knowledge encompassed in this book.

What did you like best about this story?

There was no story. This was a nonfiction book geared toward those exploring the benefits and effects of massage. The author clearly lays out the methods of massage, benefits of the methods and drawbacks you might experience.

What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

I am not really critiquing the narrator, his voice was neither here nor there. I found it easy to listen to him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I listened to it in one longer sitting when I could hear the whole book.

Any additional comments?

I am going to be going into physical therapy with massage and I wanted to know which type would be the most beneficial and what would i gain from each.
