Publisher's Summary

Long recovered from the ravages of the Riftwar, the land and people of the kingdom of the Isles thrive. Nicholas, the youngest son of Prince Arutha, is intelligent and gifted but vastly inexperienced. In hopes of hardening him, his father sends him and his irreverent squire, Harry, to live at Rustic Castle Crydee to learn of life beyond the halls of privilege. But within weeks of Nicholas and Harry's arrival, Crydee is viciously attacked by unknown assailants, resulting in murder, massive destruction, and the abduction of two young noblewomen. The raiders have come from a pirate haven and are no ordinary foe...but an enemy connected to dark magical forces that threaten the lands Nicholas will someday rule - if he survives.

Great story, horrible narration.

I’m not going to even get into it. I have never heard someone mispronounce Names and even basic ordinary words so horribly wrong. Thank god I love the author or I would have stopped listening.

Finally available in the US!

Where does The King's Buccaneer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top of the list.

What did you like best about this story?

I have read this book many times in the last 20 years. I’m so glad I can listen to it now while I get chores done. This is a great adventure story.

Have you listened to any of Peter Joyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I think this was my first listen of this narrator.

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

I wish that all of Raymond Feist’s books were available on audible in the US. I would gladly buy them all.

Another fantastic entry

Again it took me a bit to get on board with the narrators pronunciation. Everything else was incredible. Going to download the serpentwar saga asap to carry on with this amazing story.

Very nice adventure

I have read the books by raymond feist twenty years. And I loved them. And in audio there are so much better.

I had a bit of a trouble with the reader at the beginning but then it did fit the story and the pirates spirit. So really pleased
