The narrator brings Ed Greenwood's stories to life

Where does The Best of the Realms, Book II: The Stories of Ed Greenwood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 5.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Best of the Realms, Book II: The Stories of Ed Greenwood?

I've just started this book, though I know I'll enjoy memorable moments in this series of stories, as I have with other Forgotten Realms books from Ed Greenwood.

What about Katharine Gibson’s performance did you like?

Everything. Katharine Gibson's articulate and pleasant voice paired with her dynamic pacing brings these stories to life! I was trying to choose between three Ed Greenwood compilation books and her narration made it an easy choice. When listening to books written in the fantasy-genre, it's hard to find narrators that enhance the story as well as she does. The best way I can try to describe it: Gibson's passionate delivery makes it sound like she's truly enjoying the story she's reading to you-- I love it!

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

I'll let you know when I finish the book...
