What a Journey...

This 4th installment of the Rift War saga is the most detailed. You really need to pay close attention, as there is tremendous detail in the Pug, Thomas and Macros storyline. Feist must have eaten mushrooms when he was writing this final Rift War installment, as it is thick with fantastical themes. Some of it is bordering on the ridiculous, but stay with it.

Love, Desperation, Adventure, Sacrifice and Action

Get to really know Arutha. See his metal tested like never before in this book. I strongly suggest reading The Magician Apprentice and The Magician Master first. All amazing books and great stories, very well narrated.

I recommend the Peter Joyce Narration. not this

Selected narration to be included when buying the kindle book. I didnt think about the fact that I wasn't given an option for narrator. Loved listening to the first 2 books in this set narrated by Peter Joyce. in comparison this narrator is much less lively, pronounces names oddly, some of which I can see why he reads them that way, but others like Carline (or Carleene if you listen to Smith) I can't work out how he made the jump to pronouncing it that way over the more straightforward pronounciation. I am probably most put off his narration because I preferred Peter Joyce. I will pay more attention to what version of the audiobooks are being provided alongside the kindle copy next time. Take away message: brilliant story, but there's a better version of the audio book, look for the one narrated by Peter Joyce!
