Audible Editor Reviews

Maxwell Glick breathes life into Pati Nagle's novella, a fantasy romance that finds the valiant and strapping Lord Praethor on a heroic quest to recover the enchanted sword Farslayer, and unexpectedly falling for the breathtaking Sylva, a squire's daughter, along the way.

Glick's accomplished, multifaceted performance brilliantly captures the magnetism between Praethor and Sylva, and he displays versatility in portrayals of the wonderfully diverse cast of characters, delivering the stentorian boom of King Nigel's voice and the soothing coo of Sylva's with equal finesse.

Publisher's Summary

Midwinter, a time of darkness, a time to release past sorrows...

Lord Paethor, young and haunted, accepts a mission from his king: to retrieve the enchanted sword Farslayer - or die in the attempt.

Glad Yule, a fantasy novella, first appeared in the anthology An Armory of Swords, edited by Fred Saberhagen and set in his Swords of Power universe.

    "Bland reader; trite story"
    What would have made Glad Yule better?

    It's difficult for me to comment on the story itself because the reader was just not a good match for this book. He felt stilted, like a robot trying to come off as a human. He may be a good match for other genres, but this just didn't work. I got about an hour and a half in to the 2 hour story and just had to turn it off. They story itself felt trite with overused fantasy themes and bland characters, but it may have been more bearable with a better reader.


    Would you recommend Glad Yule to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, it just felt boring.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Maxwell Glick’s performances?

    Maaaaaybe...if its not fantasy. He might do well at comedy.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I couldn't finish it; I'll normally finish just to finish, but I sadly enjoyed it that little.
