The Dark Ages

This is an interesting and complex epic fantasy but DARK and violent in a largely pre-bronze age world where multiple cognizant species vie for supremacy and religious fervor plus magic threaten them all. I had the joy of listening [AUDIO] to wonderfully differentiated characters as they developed in this saga start. Being the first, this book stands alone and ends in a logical place, completing the current chapter. Of course if you want to find out what happens next . . .

Good story

I enjoyed the story, the author's style never disappoints, but I just could not handle the narration. I may just read the novel to get a better appreciation for it.

Very good fantasy audiobook

I did enjoyed it quite a lot. The story itself was interesting even thought some things were not explained but maybe they are in second part. Narration was really good with plenty of different intonations. Characters were interesting and had their own differences. It was easy to get involved with some of them and feel emotuon when something happens to them. Would recommend it.
