Publisher's Summary

Sun Wolf knew he had the power of magic, but he needed a master wizard to teach him to fully use his skills. But there was no one who could do the job. When he was called upon to help old friends against the ancient wizard, he did - thus ensuring a curse that would be executed, unless Sun Wolf could harness his own powers and find a way out....

terrible reader

Would you try another book from Barbara Hambly and/or Teri Clark Linden?

yes from B. Hamlbly, but if I see this reader, I will NOT purchase the book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?

anyone else! reader cannot pronounce "ague" and has such a stilted delivery that I am not sure I can finish listening to this book!

Reader seriously impacts enjoyment of the story

What did you like best about Dark Hand of Magic? What did you like least?

It's a good read. The characters are written with humor and insight.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Hand of Magic?

Sun Wolfe using the earth magic.

Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

Not unless someone coaches her on the proper timing and cadence of a story. It seemed that she was so concerned about annunciating the words that the story got lost. This book is a pretty high action adventure but you would not know that from how it is read. She has a pleasant voice and I think she could be an excellent reader if she would work on the cadence and speed.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

Do not waste your credit or money

In the begining of the audio book era, editors edited, readers voices fit the type of story. It didn't matter if the reader was male or female. This reader takes all the enjoyment from a good book. She should be reading to very young children. I like listening to audio books doing crafts, walking, commutes and more. I relisten to them especially when a sequal shows up. Since editors don't edit prephaps they'll pay attention however unlikely to poor reviews.
