Publisher's Summary

Every crown is tarnished by the blood of ambition. In a divided Kingdom, some will do anything to seize the crown. A bastard Lord, rising up against his tyrant cousin, sheds more blood than he bargained for. A royal child, believed dead, sets his eyes on regaining his father's stolen throne. A duke's widow, defending her daughter, defies the ambitious lord who'd control them both. And two brothers, divided by ambition, will learn the true meaning of treachery. All of this will come to pass, and nothing will remain as it once was. Royal houses will fall, empires will be reborn, and those who seek the Falcon Throne will pay for it in blood. With The Falcon Throne, a major new epic fantasy begins.

audio book equivalent to a page turner.

honor, betrayal, magic and lies. full of twists and unexpected turns. Gildart Jackson's narration was amazing.

this book was chosen based on the length of the story (I was going to be off line for a while) and the sample I listened to before hand. character voices were spot on.

A bit slow to begin with but definitely worth it

People are slating this as a Game of Thrones wannabe but it's completely its own work. It's gritty, twisting, the dialogue matches the time period and types of characters, you start rooting for one or two characters and hate others. I really enjoyed it. Really can't wait for the next book.

Entertaining, but...

A good enough yarn, but I felt it let down by the extremely repetitive use of basically one term of disparagement and the other used throughout instead of "Silence". Otherwise a good story, well-performed.

Gildart desorved better

I'm sry if my English is unreadable.

so yeah this narroator is a master at his craft hand Down,

but the story was somewhat like the author had just finished a book and thought "hey í can do this" the characters are desent. but there is no mystery

having said that in the end it comes somewhat together, but holy &$^#^& it is a long /@^#& book. and I mean that in a bad way, I was really struggling to finished it

if I had no other book that I wanted to listen too, I'd maybe buy the next one, but that's just because this narroator is crazy good
