The start of an epic

Well told story told in the classic fantasy style of myth, magic, and mayhem. Michael Pages does a great reading creating distinct characters as he introduces us to the Lord of the Isles saga. David Drake lays out a solid foundation to build his world. Great ear candy if your looking for a good fantasy tale.

Epic Fantasy-Lite

Where does Lord of the Isles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its decent. It deserves more of a 3.5 star rating than a 4 but it didn't deserve a 3 star. The strength is in its pacing which is quick and requires close attention from the listener.<br/><br/>Drake does not spend as much time in characterization as authors such as Robert Jordan or GRRM. However, in doing so he also avoid the traps that Robert Jordan and GRRM both fall into which is repetitive characterizations that get really boring when you're binge listening.<br/>

What other book might you compare Lord of the Isles to and why?

This can be considered a lighter version of Robert Jordan.
