Wizards.Magic.Adventure. Who could ask for more?

This is the first of Trevor Cooley’s books that I’ve listened to (or read) and am hooked! So much so that it replaced my regular playlist on my run so I wouldn’t have to wait to continue the journey. Sir Edge takes you on a thrilling adventure, encountering his crew of bonded characters (i.e. the good guys :)), foes and setbacks, while the pieces to the Dark Prophet’s return slowly come together.

T.J. Clark’s narration brings the characters to life! Each one has an amazingly distinct voice and manner of speaking - their personalities can be heard loud and clear - especially that of my favorite, Lenny (sp?). You’ll know what I mean when he joins the journey! Cooley’s dialogue and banter between Sir Edge’s troop is expertly voiced putting you amidst this group that has a great bond even with their individual oddities. There were multiple times where I was that weirdo laughing out loud to myself or gasping the first time I heard Deathclaw’s voice or wanting to yell at the characters to not do what they’re about to do!

As a newbie to Cooley’s world I felt like there was enough back story and detail given to understand the magic and relationships between characters. I want to listen or read all the previous series now for sure, but it’s not necessary if you just want to jump in to this one!

A great start a better return.

I have become a major fan of this series over the last few years.What drew me to it were the complex characters and the mystery of the world. With the start of this new saga I see Trevor Cooley has outdone himself again. Starting with a quick summery to refresh those of us who don't go through the series multiple times in a year as well as give new readers a good starting place without too many spoilers.The first 3 chapters do a good job of taking you on an emotional roller coaster that will leave new readers eager to know whats happening while old readers compare notes on the latest theories. I have so much more I would love to talk about but I can't stand the idea of spoiling anything. If you are tired of fantasy filled with grimdark or Marry Sue characters then please give this series a try.

Yes its a new narrator (he will grow on you)

Ok we will begin with the elephant in the room, TJ Clark, I only gave him 4 stars because my mental voices for these beloved characters were set, and lets be fair he has some big shoes to fill.... After an hour I began to get used to TJ's interpretation and performance for the loss of the 1 star is not his fault but it is a thing. Now on to the meat of it, the story jumps almost 2 decades since we left our friends. Piece may have flourished but monsters are a natural part of the work and Sir Edge had been taking to the road going were ever the bowl of souls has bid him. Families have grown and everyone has aged and matured. Although the Dark Prophet has been scamming, planning and preparing behind the scene and now is the time for him to step out fro behind the curtain and unleash his will.... We have seen Trevor kill off and some times seam to kill off characters in the past taking us to a darker place, but this book is the "Empire Strikes Back" of his books to date. This is a darker more emotionally complex book then Trevor's earlier works although as with the entire Bowl of Souls series it is to be expected. Trevor does an amazing job of maturing his writing with his characters. In closing I loved this book and my 11 year old son does as well, give it a read.

Really enjoyed it!

I was really excited to see this book up after listening to Tallow Jones: Blood Trail. Trevor has built a really vivid world here with great characters and I think TJ does a really amazing job with it. His voices are really clear and unique and he does a great job hitting the perfect tone for the story. I can't wait to see how the rest of the Dark Prophet Saga turns out!

good.

Trevor has definitely improved a lot. New narrator is better in some places, and worse in others. Fists old voice is the only one I really miss. This series has still got it.

absolutely worth the money!

I've been listening to audiobooks for a very long time. this collection is by far the top 1 or 2 in NY favorites, the other being 'in death'. two very different books, but both stand out over all others. I will say this ... I do prefer Fist's previous voice, but! still a great piece of work.

Good Things To Say

First the story. Honestly, it was hard to jump right into Sir Edge not having read The Bowl of Souls series. I found the fast paced re-cap hard to keep up with. However, the re-cap is jammed with themes that are not to be missed. In addition to the re-cap, Cooley does an interesting job of creating this world complete with its many characters, weapons that are linked with magic and friends that bonded for better or life. Now I know how it can be when you to get used to a special narrator creating characters voices and images in your head. Then along comes TJ Clark to read Sir Edge. Clark brings The Dark Prophet Saga to life. That's probably the highest praise for an audio book performance. But I invested this actors performance and I listened to Clark interpretation verses the other two narrators that Cooley used in his earlier books. Clark's diction and emphasis mimics theirs somewhat but with Clark I hear more acting in Clark's narrative voice and I hear a more gravely dwarf. There are a lot of characters in this story and lots of voices are heard. I think Cooley made a good choice with Clark. In fact I'm not sure start the series or listen again?

Bring back Andrew Tell

In the previous series Andrew Tell did such a great job voicing personalities to the characters. The new book is promising, but the transition to TJ Clark as a narrator leaves the listener feeling a loss. If one can overcome the change in Narration, Trevor H Cooley continues to captivate with his writing.

fantastic novel let down by narration.

As usual a commanding read from Mr Cooley.
However, the lack-lister performance of the narrator spoiled my journey into this latest trip into the moonrat saga.
I gave him one star for his attempt at character accents but in fairness could not allocate any higher score.
