Publisher's Summary

Beautiful as she is deadly, Liriel Baenre flits throught the shadows of Menzoberranzan, city of the dark elves. Amid treachery and murder that are the drow's daily fare, she feels something calling to her...something beyond this dusky world far removed from the sun. Yet as she ventures toward the surface and the lands of light, enemies pursue her unceasingly.
And one enemy may offer her the only hope of salvation.

Story is good, but the narrator is terrible.

Would you be willing to try another one of Dara Rosenberg’s performances?

Maybe in the same series, but overall I think the narrator makes too many major mistakes. There are many pauses for no reason, and fantastically bad pronunciation of common words. And she consistently changes pronunciation of the main character's name in the first few chapters of the book.

Don't Waste Your Time or Money

Would you try another book from Elaine Cunningham and/or Dara Rosenberg?

I would try another book by Elaine Cunningham. In fact, I purchased this audio book having already read the series. I had hoped to enjoy the story again.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance could have been 1000 times better by having someone else perform it. Dara, bless her soul, needs to find a new line of work. She is an absolutely awful performer. She must fidget like a leaf on the wind when recording. Her voice is always seemingly moving towards and away from the mic. Moreover, her English leaves much to be desired. Whether it is the rather odd way she pronounces some words, e.g., "SKIM-a-tar" instead of "scimitar," or the way she misreads words so that instead of "accessing" a room the character ends up "assessing" the room, her ability to read the text is truly cringeworthy.

Was Daughter of the Drow worth the listening time?

No. It was absolutely not worth the time.

Any additional comments?

The story is good. It is worth listening to. However, the performance is so bad that I am going to try to get my money back. The time I wasted while I listened and hoped that Dara would find her stride, I can never get back. I only hope that I can help prevent other people from suffering as I did. The story is good. I hope that they will rerecord it with a competent and skillful performer. That will make all the difference.

Did anyone ever consider pronunciation?

What made the experience of listening to Daughter of the Drow the most enjoyable?

The fact that there is an off button.

What other book might you compare Daughter of the Drow to, and why?

None

How could the performance have been better?

Have someone who can pronounce Menzoberranzan, and speaks English on a regular basis. This performance could have been much better done by a parrot, do the performers actually listen to what they've recorded, this is dreadful! I will not be completing the download and wish to cancel the order!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Played the game, read the books, will not listen to them on Audible.

Any additional comments?

Never again! I will not buy anything narrated by this person, stilted narration, mis-pronunciation, all in all a terrible experience. A wonderful series of books yet they have been ruined by the pathetic attempts to tell the tale.

great story poorly read.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes have it read by someone else.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

Victor bevine.

Dara rosenberg what can I say. This is the first audio book with her narrating and I will not buy another. She has a very strange halting reading style with emphasis in all the wrong places resulting in a painful listen. Maybe she is uncomfortable with the fantasy genre. I had to stop listening an hour in.

I get the impression she is reading a line then thinking about it then trying to say it with weird pronunciation.

Wish I could get my money back on this.
