The story is just as great as any of the forgotten realms stories are. The drawback here is the narrator. She pronounces things strangely and reads in a manner that leaves the listener confused at times. Also a problem I had with this recording was the lack of a breath or any sign that we switched character view points. One moment we are the prince fighting to keep his castle safe and then suddenly in what sounds like the same sentence we are the trusty Moore hound running home with a pack of wolves confusing the listener to exactly what's going on. If you can pour all your attention into the recording it's decently easy to follow but if you are multitasking it's very easy to get lost as to what's happening.

Would you try another book from Douglas Niles and/or Dara Rosenberg?
I read this book years ago, while there were a lot of loop holes and typo's it was a decent read.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Better voice actor.
What didn’t you like about Dara Rosenberg’s performance?
I typically don't do reviews unless I find something terribly wrong....and Dara's performance on this novel is horrid. It's like listening to the Amazon Echo read a book except that Alexa reads better. You can tell when she messes up (which is often) because there is an overdub and it's evident. Either she can't read very well, or she just doesn't like this story.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I was definitely disappointed at the performance on this novel. It's a Forgotten Realms classic. I now wish I had just read it again in lieu of paying for such a terrible performance.
Any additional comments?
I won't be purchasing any books soon that is read by Dara Rosenberg.

What would have made Darkwalker on Moonshae better?
I can't say I've understood the story because the insipid, tedious over-pronunciation of this smug reader kills my brain.
What did you like best about this story?
Don't know, it's unfollowable.
Would you be willing to try another one of Dara Rosenberg’s performances?
Never, never ever ever. Oh god how I wish I had never bought this.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Darkwalker on Moonshae?
I've no idea.
