I was so captivated by this story. The descriptions to the details are fabulous and never too much. The narrator is perfect--once you warm up to his style. *Perfect* Just an outstanding voice.

The book itself is fascinating. Even for people who don't like fantasy, Stanek has written a beautiful guide to a whole new world that is interesting as much for the human characters as for the magical lands itself.

You'll find yourself interested, and you will listen to this book again. It's interesting enough and complex enough that the parts you remember are worth hearing again, and there will be delightful surprises in those chunks you missed.

After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

Robert Stanek is a genius without question. His storytelling is captivating, imaginative and simply very entertaining. Good narrarating that shows character and personality.

If you get the set, this is one you may want to burn, definately does have high replay value. I plan on listening to it again in a few months myself. It gets all five stars from me, thoroughly enjoyed it.
