Publisher's Summary

From the depths of the demiplane of shadow comes a new magic so mysterious it confounds even the Chosen of Mystra.

From beneath the dune seas of Anauroch escapes one of Toril's most powerful and ancient evils - the phaerimm. From Evereska, the last elven refuge on comes word of invasion. From nowhere appears a group of enigmatic sorcerers determined to destroy the phaerimm and save Evereska... for purposes known only to themselves.

From the author of Crucible: The Trial of Cyric the Mad, Beyond the High Road, and Death of the Dragon (with Ed Greenwood) comes the most Realms-shaking event since The Threat from the Sea.

Painful to listen too...

Would you try another book from Troy Denning and/or Kevin Kraft?

No, Author went way over the top in trying to make it seem like a different world by making the characters speak in such an odd way, I mean yes the words are in English but this is like listening to Shakespeare, you need to devote 150% of your attention to what is being said just to understand the story. I have had to re-listen to some sections so many times that it was not work the effort.

If I ever meet this author I would demand he return my money and compensate me for the time I spent listening to his book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Troy Denning again?

No, I would rather stick knitting needles in my ears

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin Kraft?

Yes, I have to given Kevin 5 stars, he did not write the book but he did give it his all and he did have to suffer thought the entire 3 books.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Summoning?

All of them

Awful

The story is weak but the delivery was truly terrible, making it even worse than it is on its own. I'm going to listen to the second one, if it's as bad as this one I'll return all three books.
