    Do you have any additional comments?

    I loved this Book when I was a kid, It was for me, an excellent step away from the Forgotten Realms regulars and developed some of the most enjoyable characters I ever read in the genre.

    If you are a F.R. fan give this a try.

    "Pools"

    Great book read it years ago so wanted to hear it rather than read in my old age

    Not very fond of the narrator she read it the same way as I would read to a child

    But all in all worth a listen haven't read the other books in the series but will be over next few months

    Story
    "For DnD Enthusiasts"

    I really like this genre, so, even if its not stellar writing im still hooked on the fantasy world and get pulled into the DnD universe. The story telling and cliffhangers are not near as good as many other books. For example, one telling factor is when it becomes extremely difficult to put the book down at the end of a chapter... i didnt exactly get that feeling for most chapters... but, I was thoroughly entertained. I still looked forward to continue the story and imo this is well worth a read.

    Story
    "Enjoyed it!"

    I was hesitant to purchase the audio book based on previous reviews on the narrator's performance. Listening to the sample I didn't "catch" what others had said as an issue and purchased it. Granted, previous Dungeon & Dragons novels I purchased were voiced by men, i took a few minutes to get used to the difference and warmed to a female voice. Overall, I thought she did a wonderful job in narration and enjoyed listening to a book I haven't read in overall 20 years.

    Story
    "Story great, Narrator bad..."
    Would you try another book from James M. Ward and Jane Cooper Hong and/or Teresa DeBerry?

    Story is great, Narrator is terrible and should stick with an audience under 5 years old.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The adventure and characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Teresa DeBerry?

    Anyone who doesn't read as if their audience were 5.


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

    Definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a shame that Audible let a children's narrator ruin this book.
