Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Ballad of Sir Benfro: The Golden Cage, the third installment in the new fantasy series from JD Oswald, read by Wayne Forester.
Queen Beulah is determined to have her war, despatching Inquisitor Melyn north into the land of her enemies.
Battling the ever-growing influence of Magog, Benfro struggles to resist the treacherous orders of the long-dead Dragon Mage, a task made yet more difficult by the arrival of Errol in his forest refuge.
His body broken, Errol is tormented by dreams of his beloved Martha, imprisoned in a Golden Cage. He has escaped from King Ballah's torture chamber but remains powerless to help her.
Yet fate has united these two. Apart, they will surely perish, and all Gwlad with them.

I keep waiting for awesome..and waiting and..

Its almost good and then we digress and the protagonists make another goofy can even see where its headed. And why do the antagonists have it so easy? Like no one knows this stuff and suddenly or then they get help from...really? I just got annoyed after a while. More so because there is such potential for a great story. This is my last of this series unless I hit the "need a book bad wall" again.

No Progress

What did you like best about The Golden Cage? What did you like least?

In this Book there is not a lot of development in the main characters. They change locations slightly but not their abilities or who personalities.

Would you be willing to try another book from J.D. Oswald? Why or why not?

Yes but but I would hope for more of a story next time.

What three words best describe Wayne Forester’s performance?

Great performance.

Did The Golden Cage inspire you to do anything?

No, unless you consider running from one disaster to another inspiring.

very slow

felt like not much happened in this book and I found my attention straying quite alot, I'm invested in the characters now though due to the previous books so will continue with the series

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better storyline. The offered plot was meandering and unfulfilling. Indeed, it felt like the author was deliberately shoving in poor quality material just to eek out another cheque from the publishers for subsequent instalments.

What will your next listen be?

I have already bought the next book in what I thought was a four book series only to find out that the next book isn't even the last one...please! I really don't think I'll bother.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I read this only a short time ago and can barely remember a thing about it - not a good sign.

What character would you cut from The Golden Cage?

If I were editor I'd have flung this back at Wayne Forester with MOST of the book cut, never mind the characters.

Any additional comments?

I wish I could go back to warn myself before buying the first one. Sadly disappointed with author and publisher.

The next installment of Benfro and Errol.

The saga continues, but doesn't finish. A nice light listen. This would be a good series for teens or new Fantasy readers

An unexpected continuation of a blossoming series

This book completed the first two books in the series. It has left me wanting to know what will happen next and if the friendship can continue. It is a story not only for the young but also the older reader because it has a lot to offer the people on how two unlikely souls can be friends despite the differences.
