Publisher's Summary

A terrible curse, a bard hunting the unknown. A powerful force has arisen, but it's face is still unknown
In the land of Theugua, where people still whisper of the ancient tales of old, a young bard practices with his famous master. In this ancient land, people called bards exist; warriors that can cast magic using their musical instruments. This land is full of legends, but they are nothing more than tales aimed to frighten the young, or entertain the old. But Ornsell, a simple man in everything but his soul, couldn't have known that those tales where coming back to life and that one of them was hunting him that very morning.
Ornsell's son, Vygarast, a half-elf and a bard-in-training, finds himself in the middle of unnatural events that spin his life out of control. Without knowing it, he finds himself entangled in a dangerous game of fate, one that will lead him into the greatest adventure of his life with thousands of lives on the line.
Theugua, once a land of peaceful humans and elves, is now threatened by what was meant to stay hidden, what was meant to slumber forever more deep in the shadows of space and time. The world is changing and nothing will ever be the same.
This is The Bard's Tale!

great adventure story

Even better than reading a fictional adventure is listening to it, because instead of concentrating on the words, you can just sit back, listen and relax, and it reminds me of the old times when stories were narrated in radio talk shows (which I'm not old enough to have experienced myself, but I recall seeing characters on classic TV shows enjoying them).

This particular story reminds me much of some of my favorite works, such as Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter series. It has the same kind of adventure and suspense, and easy-to-like characters, as well. I think teens would also enjoy it, if they're willing to sit down for 1.5 hours and just listen.

"The Bard's Tale" Is a True Tale Fantasy

Where does The Bard's Tale: A Mysterious Journey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

On scale of 1-10, with ten being the best, I would give "The Bard's Tale" a ten. I do not always read, or in this case listen, to fantasy books, but I really enjoyed it. It was like reading a tale of an angel on my shoulder.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bard's Tale: A Mysterious Journey?

The most most memorable part of the book for me was when "Vygarast" met the fairy "Azore Frostyhill." Once he freed her from the spider web, "she raised waved her hands about in a mysterious gesture. She glowed as bright as the sun for a brief second..." From that time she was an angel on his shoulder.

Which character – as performed by Jason Damron – was your favorite?

I really enjoyed when Jason Damron performed the role of "Lanarast" who was the son's master. He was teaching him what it was like to be and live as a "Bard."

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The part of the book that really touched me was when "Vygarast" thought that "he wouldn't forgive himself if his father died...He felt the burdens of regret weighing on his shoulder. He was always out having fun with his friends. It was his fault that his father was cursed. He knew he could have helped him if he was out there with his father like he was supposed to be that day."

It is such a terrible feeling to think that you could have done something to stop your loved one from being hurt.

Any additional comments?

"Remember magic is a unity, a great flow of things that exist." (Lanarast)

Perfect Fantasy Adventure

Packed with well-rounded, interesting characters, The Bard's Tale is the perfect fantasy story. The plot is gripping and full of twists and turns and Hart's writing allows you to become fully immersed in the imaginative world he has created.
The narrator gives a great performance, allowing the listener to really become a part of the story. I would recommend this book to any fantasy lover. You won't be disappointed!

Interesting adventure

A short and sweet story that follows the adventures of young Vygarast, a bard in training who is forced to make an unexpected journey in order to save his father. There are many dangers and obstacles along the way that Vygarast must face which causes him to learn a lot about himself and the enchanted land he lives in. The peace of his homeland rests on Vygarast’s shoulders and so it is interesting seeing Vygarast develop as a character as he has to manifest a strength and qualities that initially seem beyond his abilities.
