Publisher's Summary

Picture a world intricately entwined with our own yet separate, pulsing with the raw energy and vivid color of Celtic myth come to life. Enter Lewis Gillies, an Oxford student whose search for a missing friend leads him through a door to another reality - and unimagined discoveries about life, good and evil, and his own identity and destiny. The words of a prophetess foretell a coming king. But Lewis, as Albion's renowned champion Llew, has a more immediate concern: retrieving the treacherous Siawn-Hy, who has eluded him in the doorway between worlds - and who now, lusting for power, has allied himself with the usurper Meldron.
Forced to flee for their lives, Llew and the bard Tegid find refuge deep in Albion's heartland. Under their leadership, a wilderness citadel arises...and the miraculous reign of Silver Hand begins.
Don't miss the rest of the books in this exciting series: Book 1, The Paradise War and Book 3, The Endless Knot.

The best of the Song of Albion

This is the best of the series and it shows, glowing as bright as a silver hand. The narrator does a solid job, however, there are a number of times a sentence is repeated as if there is a slight overlay on the recording. It doesn't happen oft though and is only a minor annoyance.

Appallingly poor Audible conversion

This is a solid, entertaining fantasy story. There are a few flaws--we never quite understand why one of the time travelers turns evil, nor why the protagonist (working on a graduate degree in Celtic studies at Oxford) seems to have no clue about plot points that are obvious to any reader of fantasy fiction (being in a state of denial is a weak explanation). The narrator does a good job, other than for the mangling of Celtic names and terms. This is probably not a problem to most who know the terms by reading them in fantasy books, and who have not been teased over pronunciation of place names, etc. in Ireland. It's actually kind of funny when partway through, "Nee-all" becomes "Neil." (I wonder what the producers would have done if the name had been one that is pronounced very differently from way it looks, like Niamh.)

The overall rating is because Audible did a remarkably lazy job in converting CDs into a continuous recording. Throughout the narrative, two or three sentences will be repeated without warning in the middle of a chapter. When listening to audiobooks on CDs, the repeated sentences can be seen as a benefit--or at least are not too disruptive. In a continuous narrative, the duplicated sentences are confusing, spoil the flow, and are profoundly irritating.
