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.

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.

Why the repeats?

The main problem was the quality of the recording. About 5-6 times throughout, there would be about 30 seconds that would repeat for no apparent reason.
