Publisher's Summary

The Book of Death...and of Life. The Carpathian city of Vedun is poised for holocaust: Terrifying monsters, vile magic, and brutal mercenaries are arrayed against the anxious secret militia by the multiple-lived King Klann. Vedun's new military leader - the half-breed samurai, Gonji - must seek the aid of the powerful nightmarish creature, Simon Sardonis, who shuns all mankind. But when the inevitable clash explodes, when the ghastly struggle to protect and evacuate hundreds of innocents begins, will Gonji's efforts be enough? Will treachery prove the city's undoing? Can any remnant of a ravaged and brutalized populace be saved from the horror? Or will Gonji's now passionately embraced quest abruptly end with the...DEATHWIND OF VEDUN? The startling conclusion to a great epic fantasy trilogy!

Would you consider the audio edition of Deathwind of Vedun to be better than the print version?

The audio edition allows the listener to experience the long lost art of storytelling. The audio edition allows the listener to tap into a different part of the human brain that stimulates multiple senses; making the experience more fulfilling than is had from simply reading the same story. I read this book originally 30 years ago. I loved it then and have become thrilled by the opportunity to read it again via the audio medium. I am a Martial Arts Master of 30 years. This book has particular appeal to me. I give it 5 stars because it is a Masterpiece encompassing such an expanse of characters, plots, story lines, philosophies and more. This book is a treasure that will benefit any reader by multiple readings. It sits in the company of Lord of the Rings, Don Quixote, and The Art of War. I interpret Gonji as Miyamoto Musashi, author of The Book of Five Rings. If a novel had been written of his life as a fiction story...I believe Gonji would hit the mark as well as could be done.
