Great characters and an entertaining story

I really enjoyed this entertaining audiobook. You soon became attached to the "heroes." A brother and sister team who rescue people from bandits as part of a game. This game leads them into trouble but it also paves the way to their future. Even though it is fairly short, there is a lot of enjoyable story packed in there. It has action, suspense, humour, romance and some great characters. The narration took a little bit to grow on me but in the end I thought he fit the story and characters well. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation.

A very sweet short story

This is a very sweet story about love and everyday heroes. I loved this story very much, and it was great as am audio book.
The narrator did an amazing job of bringing the story to life.

A Hero Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Heroes to be better than the print version?

I have not read the book. I loved the audiobook.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Heroes?

When she asked they not let her brother know she cried.

What does E. Allen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He made the Heroes game sound inviting and exciting. I don't think it would have appealed to me if I had read it.
Also, he provided the POV with a masculine voice, who admired his little sister and had a low self esteem, without sounding wimpy.
E. Allen was nearly perfect for this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It was a novella and it flowed very quickly.

Any additional comments?

I'd be very interested in listening to The Erdemen series if they became available in audiobook.

Playing Heroes

The start of the book somehow reminded me of Peter Pan, captured by the pirates. That feeling was reinforced as the first chapter continued but gradually dropped away as I was enveloped in a medieval world of peasant and noble. Although part of a series, this novella stands well on its own and is complete unto itself. I had the pleasure of enjoying the audio version which kept me enthralled. It was rather like listening to a storyteller sharing tales of long ago. The narration is not perfect but the narrator's vocal range brought the characters to life. My first reaction upon finishing was to reach for another story set in this world.

intriguing

while not a long story it certainly got my interest. it is about how one fearless girl and her brother met a Lord's son and their different encounters as they grow up. I'm really interested in her brother and what happens as he works for a general's son. no sexual content and some violence are in the story.
