"Epic scope…vivid imagination…a significant contribution to the growth of the field of fantasy." (Washington Post)
"Well-written…intelligent…intriguing." (Publishers Weekly)
Overall a great book, great characters and settings. One of the better fantasy series on Audible.
Unfortunately the are some strange long pauses and jumps with audio, that are obvious enough to be a little distracting
Im afraid Peter Joyce may have been given little instruction on the correct pronunciation of many of the key characters names in this series, but otherwise the performance is adequate.
He is consistent and his characterizations are subtle but effective for the most part. The voicing of Baru and Murmandamus I feel are dead wrong, but hey, that's audio books for you.
Well worth the buy if you dont have the time or inclination to sit down with this great read.
have waited for a long time to have this book brought to audible have enjoyed reading it many times and this was wonderfully narrated
A great follow up to Magician. Has a few funny moments that you don't get in Magician. Feels like it should be longer, but then after the first book, and the fact it's actually 2 books, I guess it's to be expected. Looking forward to the next in the series!
wonderful, exciting, expansive and suptemely put together and thought out. a timeless classic i have read or listened to 5 times
Loved the story and narration! Book is flawed though. The chapters are merged together sometimes, so a new chapter might begin when there's 20 min left of the previous (according to timing, nothing is missing). Also, wrong numbering on chapters.
Ah Peter Joyce my man, what a great narrator sounds like, love his rich voice and how he brings each character to life, I enjoyed this right though to the end, now on to the next instalment 😱
"As Good As Good As I Remembered"
I've read the Rift War books many times over the past 20 years and was worried that a narrator wouldn't match my memory. I had nothing to fear, other than some random pauses which must have happened as part of the mastering process the story was well told.
The story is a proper adventure/quest tale which is well paced and an excellent if too short follow up to Magician. It also sets the scene perfectly for the climax in Darkness at Sethanon.
"A great listen"
Read exceptionally well as before, great story and very enjoyable to listen to. Looking forward to the next installment and the conclusion.
only one negative - bizarre pronunciations on some names, but didn't detract from a rivetting story.
I enjoyed this in the car. was very well read and was really well done
"Big fan of feist. peter joyce isnt half bad"
Big fan of feist. peter joyce isnt half bad narratng though I find him much better at 1.25x speed on audible :)
Good follow on from magician , a few edit errors in this recording like a couple of times you hear a repeat of the story but apart from that an excellent narration
more enjoyable than when i read it years ago highly recomended, cant wait for the finale started the download before i finished this, again i wish that somone would make this series in to films
"This book is amazing. What a story!!!"
loved this story. he get everything right in making you like the people it the story
As the 2nd book in the series this is an excellent continuation of an immersive world, well told and an excellent step in the saga.
"A master piece"
I read these series of books more than once but to have them on audio too is very gripping! Excellent!
