Publisher's Summary

Kazgoroth, the Beast, has come into the world to destroy the power of the Earthmother. Changing its shape as needs be, the Beast goes across the island of Gwynneth, corrupting everything in its way. Its destination is a large gathering of Northmen raiders at Oman's Isle, in the middle of the Moonshaes, where they are preparing an assault on the kingdom of Corwell. The Northmen don't realize yet that this is going to be more than just a plundering raid. They don't know that their leader isn't King Thelgaar Ironhand, but the Beast, who has killed the king and assumed his shape.Meanwhile, the Earthmother, aware of the danger and hurting from the corruption brought to the land, her body, by the vile presence of the Beast, awakes her children - the Leviathan, the Pack, and Kamerynn, the Unicorn. They will try to stop Kazgoroth in different ways, but that won't be enough.At Caer Corwell, the seat of the king of Corwell, rumour brings word of war coming to the kingdom. Preparation is under way, but the Ffolk don't know where the enemy will strike. It is up to Tristan to organize the Ffolk against this both human and demonic threat. In his fight against the odds, helped by Robyn, he will grow into the responsible leader that should inherit his father's kingdom.

A good story ruined by a bad voice actor.

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.

Decent enough

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.
