Lymond's back but where's Book 1 THE GAME OF KINGS

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Having anxiously waited for what seems to be forever, finally The Lymond Chronicles!

Audible, please make the The Game of Kings (Book 1) available as quickly as possible! These books should be savored in the order they were written and as I have read them in the "old-fashioned" way atleast once a year since they were originally released in print.

It is so wonderful to have the books currently available read by such an accomplished narrator. Beautiful inflexion; realistic and measured pace just as I would have imagined Ms. Dunnett to have meant.

So very pleased!! I will keep these books in "My Library" for always!

Lymond and Gabriel together in a tour de force

This was the hardest book of the series to read. To watch Lymond meet a man who is his match in all ways makes for an amazing story. The honorable and righteous knight of Malta is an older version of Lymond, and the younger man chafes against the perceived restraint. Listening to this book is a much more rewarding experience than reading it. To read it was difficult. I won't say why, as that would ruin the story, but in listening to it, once picks up the subtle nuisances and cues, and realizes how a scene can appear to have something happening, but in reality is totally different. I would suggest listening to it twice, if you aren't familiar with the story, in order to get the full impact.

This is a stunning story, as are all in this series, with the knowledge of the times, the geography, and all that makes a man great. Lymond, Gabriel, and his sister, the beautiful Jolletta, make for a compelling triangle, as Lymond contrives to not be mastered, when all around him wish him to have a steadying influence in the magnificent Garbriel, Knight of the Order of St. John.

As always, the mixture of humor (Lymond routing an army with 80 sheep in helmets sweeping down a hillside in the dark), to the arid landscape of Malta, and the amazing climax in the cathedral of Edinburgh, makes for a story that will keep you second guessing all the way until the very end.
