When his friends start dying and the girl is kidnapped, Shadowbane must choose between the darkness and the light in his heart: to avenge the deaths of his friends, or to let the villain live to face - and possibly escape - justice.

What did you love best about Downshadow?

This book does a great job of giving me interesting and engaging characters in the Forgotten Realms without having to give me a massive world-shattering event. What are the sorts of stories happening to the little guy...that's what Downshadow is about. A man out for justice to save a city that doesn't know it needs saving.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think I liked Erezra the most. She has an interesting story and is probably the most believable character in the way she talks, acts, and thinks. She's not given enough credit I feel like there's more to her that I want to learn, more than anyone else.

Which character – as performed by James Patrick Cronin – was your favorite?

Wrath, the villainous dwarf, was performed as this interesting combination of Bane from the Dark Knight movies and Robert Carlyle from Once Upon a Time and Stargate: Universe.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I'm not sure about one sitting...but I did finish it in about 4 days, that's about as close to one sitting as I get.

Any additional comments?

As a D&D and Forgotten Realms fan there are some issues with pronunciation in the performance and some areas where it seemed that the way it was read missed out on the punchline or the subtleties of the story, but for the most part I was very pleased with this book in story and in performance. Keep up the great work.
