The long-awaited conclusion to the Starlight & Shadows trilogy is now in audio. The release of Windwalker brought to a close a series first begun by New York Times best-selling author Elaine Cunningham ten years ago. Following the recently released recovers of Daughter of the Drow and Tangled Webs, the first two titles in the series, this audiobook is not to be missed.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Story is typical Forgotten Realms. If you are a fan, you will deal with the flaws in the reading.The narrator tries her heart out, but can't read to save her life... mispronunciations, pitch and tone inconsistent with character, intent, meaning... very difficult to enjoy with all this variation... men sound like women, questions sound like exclamations, pauses misplaced and ... did I mention mispronunciations?And the sound editor needs a new headset... the re-recorded patched portions are too obvious and often distracting...

Would you be willing to try another book from Elaine Cunningham? Why or why not?

For love of the series, I did, and will again.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The inept reading is at best something you just live with... at worst you scream the mispronounced word correctly to the traffic you are sitting in while listening.

Do you think Windwalker needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There can always be more in the Forgotten Realms
