Publisher's Summary

The groundbreaking audio production of what Los Angeles Times Magazine called “the greatest epic in the history of comic books” continues. Leading perhaps the best cast ever assembled in audio, James McAvoy returns to voice Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams, in The Sandman: Act III, the third installment of the New York Times best-selling audio saga. Award-winning audio trailblazer Dirk Maggs adapts the blockbuster DC graphic novel series written by Neil Gaiman (Good Omens) into another fully immersive listening experience, presented for the first time in breathtaking 3D audio.

In Act III, we follow Morpheus on a grand journey to take care of family business. He visits with his son Orpheus (Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page), an act that brings with it profound consequences. Accompanied by Delirium (Kristen Schaal, Bob’s Burgers), he tracks down their estranged brother, Destruction (David Harewood, Supergirl), the only member of the Endless ever to abandon their post. And at an inn at the intersection of all worlds, a group of travelers are forced together by a storm that threatens to destroy reality itself, with grave repercussions for Morpheus and the rest of the Endless.

All the original cast returns, including Kat Dennings as Death, Aidan Turner as Cluracan, and Neil Gaiman himself as The Narrator, joined by Harewood and other new cast members Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), KJ Apa (Riverdale), Shruti Haasan (Race Gurram), and more.

It’s time to close your eyes and listen. Once again.

Please note: This content is not for kids. It is for mature audiences only. Just like the original graphic novels, this audio adaptation contains explicit language and graphic violence, as well as strong sexual content and themes. Discretion is advised.

Absolutely stunning

I love it
The sounds are amazing. So immersive. The voices are just so heavenly. The story and the details are so vivid, it's as if you are literally IN the story ❤️

Disappointing

I feel so confused and disappointed .. what was even the main storyline? Nothing even happened? So much potential but it just fell short, half of the second book and half of the 3rd book were just short stories? So disappointing

Another epic instalment

Great to have it back so soon! The stories made more sense than in the second one..As usual Gaiman's narration is like listening to silk 👌

Another hit

Loved the story and can’t wait for more. Had a few audio level issues so had to keep playing with volume but other than that, spot on.

Everything you could hope for in a third act.

Act III is arguably the most linear, accessible set of Sandman stories. You might wonder where it's all going, but unlike earlier chapters you always understand what's going on. Kristen Schaal deserves recognition for her performance as Delirium (was there any other casting choice) and James McAvoy seems to be really enjoying and leaning into his starring role as Morpheus to the great benefit of this already classic series. What a shame he wasn't cast in the TV series but you can't have everything I suppose.

A master piece as usual

I love the performance and stories. Never ever regretted getting a Neil Gaiman narrated story.
