Fantastic Fantasy

Ross Hughes does it again, with eleven more awesome tales. I now have volumes 1, 2 and 3 in audio and several of the kindle version stories. If you are into some above average fantasy stories, Ross Hughes is your guy, you will not be disappointed. A.J. Carter also does a good job of narrating. I received this audiobook for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Excellent addition to this series.

After listening to Chronicles of Maradoum Volume 1 I thought I knew what to expect before listening to Volume 2. This is one of those times I’m thrilled to have been wrong, Volume 2 started off with some intense action and kept up its momentum through all the succeeding vignettes. I’m hoping the third volume is as good as these first two. If you enjoy fantasy stories or anthologies of short stories, you may want to give these first two volumes of the Chronicles of Maradoum a listen/read. A.J. Carter’s narration brought each character to life and made the listening experience a true pleasure.I received a review copy of the audio book from StoryOrigin

Even better than the first Anthology

I highly recommend this collection of short stories which is even better than the first collection. The world building is amazing. These tales are graphic, gruesome and confronting. A world of magic. Stories of retribution, of hope and brutality. I love short stories and these are the perfect length, each with a sting in the tail. Of this collection, Dragon Rider and Of Wizards and Monks are perhaps my favourites, but I loved all the stories. Blood Sacrifice is about a pacifist pushed too far.

The narration is great. I loved A.J. Carter's interpretation, nicely paced and pitched.

An enjoying listen

I enjoyed listening to this series in the background while was working, I had to rewind a few times to catch everything. All in all I enjoyed this series and will read the next book in this series. I received this audiobook for review and this is my honest opinion.

Good & Evil, from who's Point of View

This 2nd book is better then the 1st in this Series. Narrator did a good job on the various stories and characters. This is a collection of short stories in Maradoum.

A well-written story from a good author

Chronicles of Maradoum Volume 2: A Fantasy Anthology, my fourth read from author Ross C. Hughes, who I'd never read before March of last year. Another anthology of fantasy short stories, even better than Volume 1. 168 pages/6-hours 18-minutes, but reads longer due to the detail & development of the story. In re-reading this audiobook A.J. Carter's narration added to a good book's enjoyment. I look forward to reading more from this author. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018)
