This book has to be the best conclusion and wrap up of all characters filled with suspense, dread loathing and emotional ups and downs.

But a most needed read.

Great story. Just ignore some audio editing

The story is a great story. Charged with emotion and well told hero coming of age and overcoming adversity.

Some audio glitches but not enough to make you want to stop listening

Good story - the previous stories were better tho

This version feels rushed and unfinished. That aside - still a great story and continues to build on the last.

Each book gets better then the last!

This series is a continually evolving opus of fantasy, commentry on religion politics and corruption on the 'good' the bad and the naive.

Well done again Brent Weeks and the narrator is great as well!

What did you like most about The Black Prism?

The different types of magic and diverse characters

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are so many good characters - all have such strong valuable attributes and some equally corrosive flaws.

Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances? How does this one compare?

na

Any additional comments?

Really have to struggle passed the first 30 chapters. But it really is worth the effort. Hopefully the next few books will be just as good and won't need the large quantity of literary foundation.

Great Series - gets greater in next Cycle series

What made the experience of listening to The Cycle of Arawn the most enjoyable?

I fell in love with the characters and their trials and adventures through listening to the Cycle of Garland first... It's characters are flawed and human involving far reaching concepts and topics whilst wrapping it up in epic tale of magic, warfare subterfuge etc etc.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dante and Blaze the two main characters are great - but the supporting characters through out bring laughter and tears, as well as hatred toward the 'villains'. All very balanced character set and their interactions written nicely.

What about Tim Gerard Reynolds’s performance did you like?

Narrator was awesome - found this book by following his performance.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughter, anger and a hint of sadness in there some where. No spoilers - you'll find your own moments.

Any additional comments?

This is a great engaging book that takes a while to get through. Suspend reality for a moment and let yourself go. This will prepare you fort the Cycle Garland... don't repeat my mistake by listening to that first.

Good story - well read

Sluggish to get one's head around the world, but once the story developed it was easy to keep up with the developments.

nice commentary on prejudices in society and castes.

Highly recommend - can't wait to read the next in the series.

Slow to start - but can't stop listening now...

What made the experience of listening to Free the Darkness the most enjoyable?

The narrator did a good job.The story developed well enough. Its pure indulgent fantasy, and that's good from time to time.

What other book might you compare Free the Darkness to, and why?

The Witcher Series. They're the reason why I start listening to more fiction over non-fiction.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes... its long, but helps the work day go by.

Good book - one for the reference library re-read

This book has great common sense ideas and concepts on using the available low cost technology and 'customer - first' ideals to have more people aware of your business increasing opportunity for revenue growth, product evolution and reducing unnecessary marketing spend.

Good book, will be a reference book for future

Some good concepts, some applicable some not.

But all in all a good book to have on the shelf to go back to and reference when you have a sticking point
