Very Entertaining

This is actually two books in one so that caught me a little off guard but I really enjoyed it! The narrator could have done a little more variety with the female characters but does well with the main male characters. Would definitely recommend and plan to listen to the story continued!

Get ready for a ride

I just love this series. The narrator is excellent. Once you start the series you won't be able to put it down. So it's best to just buy all the books from now and just go on a binge. Having read Michael J Sullivan books it has made a new standard when selecting all the books. If you love intrigue , action and all the characteristics of a good fantasy fiction epic series this is the book for you.

Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!

I have read and listened to the Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander., this series has been part of my life since the 1980s . I have been wanting to find something just as fantastic as it was normal I have found it with Michael J. Sullivan. I I listened to this book and when I was finished I started listening to it immediately again. I absolutely am in love with the depth of the characters and the suspense along with the gallantry and mystery this story entails. I commute to work and I listen to many audio books and I have to tell you that the narrator is absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend this series even though I have only listened to the first book , I have absolutely no doubt the entire series will be fantastic.

Lots of fun, felt real.

I thought the entire journey was amazing, the main cast just felt real and the banter between the two "rogue heroes" was very natural. If you enjoyed the Cycle of Arawn then you'll LOVE this.
