Publisher's Summary

Long ago, the wizards had vanished from the world, and all knowledge was left hidden in riddles. Morgon, prince of the simple farmers of Hed, proved himself a master of such riddles when he staked his life to win a crown from the dead Lord of Aum.But now ancient, evil forces were threatening him. Shape changers began replacing friends until no man could be trusted. So Morgon was forced to flee to hostile kingdoms, seeking the High One who ruled from mysterious Erlenstar Mountain. Beside him went Deth, the High One's Harper. Ahead lay strange encounters and terrifying adventures. And with him always was the greatest of unsolved riddles - the nature of the three stars on his forehead that seemed to drive him toward his ultimate destiny.

The riddle master of hed

I first read this book when it was published in the 70s.
I listen to it now because of a childhood memory.
The audio recording is good. The narrator does a great job, however the story is a beginners effort in my opinion. her next two books in the series go over much better

Not Sure if I liked it

Any additional comments?

Not sure how much I actually enjoyed this story. At times I found it quite interesting, while at other times I was bored. And I got tired of it in the last few chapters particularly.

Fantastic trilogy

This is a fantastic trilogy, one of my all-time favourite fantasy books. I was so delighted to discover that it is available as an unabridged audio book, and read by the wonderful Simon Prebble, that I downloaded the entire trilogy and immediatly started listening to it.

This is not to be missed - a great story that keeps you on the edge of your seat right up to the end.
