Adamar, an alcoholic children’s magician, must reclaim his former glory as he joins his fellow stranded travelers, a bartender with a battleaxe, a kind-hearted construction worker and a lethal night watchman in an adventure across space and time.
Along with a writer, an astrophysicist, and an unfulfilled corporate vice president, they will race to save a distant world, the future of humanity and the woman Adamar loves.
Before their journey’s end, identity, love, sanity, and loyalty will be overturned. Some will fall. Others will rise as heroes. All will be tested.
To succeed, they must realize their dreams and uncover a secret from the dawn of creation, a secret wielded by a despotic emperor to enslave his people. Only then can they stop the spread of his sadistic rule and open the portal that will take them home.

MAX MIXTURE OF SCIFI/FANTASY
What made the experience of listening to Adamar the most enjoyable?
Great escapest story. The Dragon spaceship? A living, ship kind of like I have seen in other fantasy/scifi novels. Just wish the Dragon had not been slain, or has it? This book kept my attention, which most books cant do. Another thing, it gets better the more you listen
What did you like best about this story?
The action scenes were vivid and well defined. Also, the story rolls along in a logical and well thought out manner. The ending was a little predictable, but it is leading into the next episode. thought it was more entertaining than John Carter of Mars and really better written
What three words best describe Lee Strayer’s voice?
normal, too soothing
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
no, it just was escapist entertainment, which is what I got it for

Horrid - seriously needs an editor
Cyborg Dragon Space Ship...that alone should tell you something. This is just a bad book. It is poorly written and poorly narrated. The dialogue is stilted and truly odd. One minute we're listening to characters speaking normally and then it changes drastically. It's as if the author pulled out his thesaurus and went wild. The result is the following sentence: "[,,,] exposing her magnanimous ivory breasts." (see time stamp 4:22:31) I was so startled by this particular sentence I had to go back and see if I had heard it correctly and then I bookmarked it so I could let others hear it.
I really tried to listen to the flat narration and the confusing and poorly written story. I really did try but after 4.5 hours, I had to stop. I just couldn't take it anymore. Save your credits. I hope someone gives the author a dictionary to go with his thesaurus so he can see the entirety of a word's definition before he uses it.
