Publisher's Summary

In the distant future, society has crumbled. Dark forces now rule the land, keeping all humans under their oppressive thumbs. In the darkness of the shadows and whispered on the winds, there is talk of rebellion. In the swamps, a small band has formed. Determined to regain their freedom, the rebels, heavily outnumbered, plan to overthrow an army of thousands, with the help of one incredible weapon.
It is only a legend, a story left over from the Old World before magic and the wizards came to the land. A weapon of technology. It is the mystical Elephant, and whoever masters it holds the key to freedom...or defeat.
One young man, determined to avenge the death of his family, sets out to join the rebellion and find Elephant. What he discovers will change everything.

Distracting Reader

Overall I did like this book and would recommend it but you have to be patient. It gets off to kind of a slow start and to make things worse the reader is well.. kind of annoying. I could ignore the long pauses but the constant loud inhaling is VERY distracting. Could they not edit that out.

Good book, bad narrator.

First, I'm a Saberhagen fan, so I lived the book when I read it and as I listened to it. Todd's narration is, as always, barely tolerable. The frequent mispronunciation is very distracting. I won't buy anything he narrates again.

Fantastic book. Revisited!!!!!!

Re-read this book after many years. Better than the first time. Loved it. Narrator was expressive and enjoyable. However accenting all the speech was maybe not a good idea.

Excellent nevertheless!

Somewhat bizarre delivery

An average fantasy tale spoiled by an unaccountably poor narrator. If you like all your characters to sound like a drunken Swedish speak-and-spell then this is the audiobook for you. If not, maybe consider the hard copy.
