Was this really written by professionals ?

This is the worst audio books I have ever heard. The characters are one-dimensional. The dialogue is awful. The voice acting is marginal. The childish and flamboyantly stupid main antagonist is laughable considering the intelligence cunning and discipline that would be required to survive as even an acolyte Red wizard of Thay.

Reader Speaks Like She's Reading to a Toddler

This ridiculous over-dramatic reading isn't fit for Sesame Street. So bad I couldnt finish. Actually made me nauseous.

Enjoyable! ultimately an enjoyable experience.

I think the story was good but the high pitched voices used for demons and dark wizard gave me "wicked witch" vibes so they never seemed very intimidating. More comical most times. A good story still.

more refined than the predecessor

the story did improve. nice mix of first and second edition d&d rules. i personally love the inclusion of a pit fiend in all of these early campaigns. even if it does wear a little thin. makes me appreciate the phaerimm and the beholder as boss monsters in other stories.

militades

militades is a paladin of tyre how is he wielding a sword? However great book and great story telling overall. I've run out of forgotten realms books to listen to due to bad storytelling. I have ~80 novels in my collection. This was very refeshing.

As good as I remember.

This book was as good as the first time I read it all those years ago. On to Twilight.

Story is ok, but VA didn't fit

Ok, so I've read the first book in the series, and this is the book 2 of the trilogy
whilst I make no assumptions about the VAs ability, I just don't think here it was suited to the story and the story was weaker than others books in the fr universe. still and ok listen whilst busy doing other things.
