Noah is an awesome story teller, but PLEASE, no more mouth smacking! My mother would take our heads off for it, and she has made me sensitive to ot too... But overall, his performances can't be beat!

The blood-soaked blade of war. For seven hundred years, the Undying High Lord Milo has been building his Confederation, leading the Horseclans slowly across the lands once known as the United States, absorbing city-states and nomadic tribes alike, some by peaceful means, some by the sword. But now his enemies have banded together into an army far larger than Milo can muster.

With her phenomenal Mage Winds trilogy, bestselling author Mercedes Lackey captivated fans across the country. Now in the first volume of the series sequel, she continues the same storyline, returning readers to a war-torn Valdemar in preparation to confront an ancient Eastern Empire - ruled by a monarch whose magical tactics by be beyond any sorcery known to the western kingdoms.

Love this entire series, and Audible needs to get all her books. The only part I don't like is the voice used for the griffins, its just not right. But otherwise the performance is very good.

But others, too, are being caught up in a war against sorcerous evil.

What made the experience of listening to Damia's Children the most enjoyable?

It was written by Anne McCaffrey, you just can't go wrong with any of her books.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Damia's Children?

Towards the end, what Zara does,,,, & no, I'll not give it away!

What about Jean Reed Bahle’s performance did you like?

That she reads the book, not perform every character in it.
