Publisher's Summary

The winter had begun. At Gunnaring Gap, the valiant Riders of Valon began their charge. And though Challerain Keep lay in ruins and butchery had led to the capture of Princess Laurelin, heroes strode forth from the ranks of Men, Elves, Warrows, and Dwarves to turn the tide of doom. And across the land ruled by unnatural dark, freedom flickered and burst into flame...
Listen to another adventure in the Iron Tower trilogy.

I love this series. I read it in the 80's

The narration is very good. I read all the books in Iron Tower and Silver Call in the 80's. One of my favorite series and why I love dwarven lore. Picked these up for a recent road trip. Well worth the coin.

Awesome book, just needs sound effects

I love this trilogy, just feel that the songs or sounds could be improved through the use of instruments.

Good, but I like McKiernan's other books better.

I like more magic (the mages are all apparently hibernating at this point in the overall timeline), and the narrator reads very calmly, even through action, and I like a more exciting reading pace/inflection at the appropriate times.

I wish I could ask for my money back.

This review covers all three books of the Iron Tower.

I have already listened to this story...it's called The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by Tolkien. I don't understand how The Iron Tower Trilogy has been published as an original work. If the author would have at least tried to tip his hat to Tolkien and written 'his trilogy' as an addendum or supplemental story to Tolkien's work it might have been a bit more acceptable. Way too much weeping, teary eyes and hoods over the head as well. A teeter-totter?? Unimaginative use of a very childish term for a fantasy story. Audible: Can I please have my money back??
