Publisher's Summary

In the time of the Etruscans, the half-forgotten civilization that preceded Rome, centaurs, fauns, and other manlike races still existed alongside humanity. Between mankind and the Weir Ones was constant fear and distrust. When the arrogant nobleman Lars Velcha enslaved one of these creatures, the fear and distrust turned into open warfare.
The Weirwoods is an unforgettable novel of mystery and magic at the dawn of history, by the celebrated author of Lady of the Bees and The Green Phoenix.

Prejudice and friendship

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes. The message of the story about accepting our friends with their strengths and weaknesses is interesting.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The female characters show the most growth, and were what kept me listening.

Which character – as performed by Timothy Patrick Hinkle – was your favorite?

The lady water nymph/magician was my favorite. She is memorable for the way she revealed the society of the weir people and for her growth.

Was The Weirwoods worth the listening time?

Yes. It started a little slow, but kept my interest the whole way. It is quite short.

Any additional comments?

The music was a nice addition.
