Publisher's Summary

Renegade dragon hunter Dorn hates dragons with a passion few can believe, let alone match. He has devoted his entire life - a life spent in the twisted body of a half-golem - to killing every dragon he can find.
You might feel the same way if one of them had killed your entire family in front of your eyes, bitten you in half, and left you for dead.
Killing one dragon at a time is hard enough, but when the irresistible impluse to slip into feral madness begins to overcome not one but every dragon all across Faern, civilization's only hope may lie in the last alliance Dorn and his fellow dragon hunters would ever accept.
No matter what happens, the next year is going to be a difficult one for Dorn, and for Faern itself. The Year of Rogue Dragons has come....

Fun entry into Forgotten Realms lore

Great mix of diverse characters. Action and adventure throughout. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Great Author/Writing --- Poor Narration

Would you try another book from Richard Lee Byers and/or Melissa Reizian Frank?

I have tried other Richard Lee Byers books. Fascinating stories of Thay and Dragonborn. Although the story is a great read, the narration is awful. I had to force my listening through this.... Played video games or did work or whatever else I could do. BEATING!!! Richard Lee Byers made some less than popular areas of Forgotten Realms come to life. If Forgotten Realms narration wasn't dying off, I'd say this needs to be narrated by a much better narrator.

Would you recommend The Rage to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend they read this and not listen to it in this state.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Melissa Reizian Frank?

Not if I can help it. I have other books by Melissa in the library and am committed so will be listening begrudgingly.

Did The Rage inspire you to do anything?

Inspires me to look at the narrator before buying.

Could have been much better

Any additional comments?

It's certainly a listenable series but I feel it was a missed opportunity, I can think of other FR authors that could have done far more with this. I found it improves in the second and more so in the third book.

The narrator is by no means poor, but some of the voices she uses, or rather her emphasis of tone to depict emotion sometimes goes a little too far. It's fair to say stories in any overarching fantasy universes can, in reality, be a bit silly at times but that's often no detriment to what are good stories overall; her use of emotional tone 'cheapened' it a little at times if that makes sense? Particularly Dorn and Kara. The only thing I found out of place were the couple of Dwarf voices.

I've only listened to/read Lee Byer's book in the War of the Spider Queen, which was very wordy but truly excellent. I've not got to his other books yet, but I'd safely say this is the weakest, it wouldn't be fair to avoid him over this.
