Publisher's Summary

Everybody was young once. Even the most confident people were once uncertain, the most ferocious were once frightened, and the most competent were once naive. We all met our best friends somewhere and not always under the best conditions.
In this collection of short stories from the world of Panamindorah, Silveo meets Basil, Silas meets Percy, Anaroo meets Gwain, Gus meets Silas, and Gerard prepares to meet Thessalyn. Dakar and Theseus are tiny children, caught up in the machinations of others; Glossy makes impossibly difficult decisions for herself and her child; and Marlie struggles with the ghosts of her past and present. All of them will find their places in the world, often far from where they started. For the moment, however, they are doing everything for the first time.
These stories will make the most sense if you have heard The Guild of the Cowry Catchers series and The Scarlet Albatross. However, if you haven't listened to one or both of those stories, you'll still understand most of what's going on. The titles in this collection are: "Harbor Wave", "Dark Heart", "Quarantine", "Taking Tricks", "Anaroo of the Defiance", "Letter of Reference", "Chimera", "Fire From Heaven", and "Ghosts".

Delightful ear candy

As a long time fan of the Guild of the Cowery Catchers, it was delightful to hear another round of backstories on some of my favorite characters, and new ones from the Refugee Series. The audio quality, mixing and narrative performances are top notch and music that is used is not distracting or to loud. I especially enjoyed the backstories of both Anaroo and Theseus as I have been curious about their childhoods and found some of the explanations Abby offers immensely gratifying.

felt like good times with old friends..

What did you love best about When We Were Young?

It has been long ago that i listened to the Guild of the Cowry Catchers and The Prophet of Panamindorah (early podcaster listener) . And just listened to the The Scarlet Albatross . it was so nice to revisit those characters from time gone by and truly made me ache for more interaction with them in the future

What did you like best about this story?

I just love the world that abigail has opened up for us to enjoy

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

i felt narration was great .and kepted story well on pace

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I might have profited by listening to this befor listening to the Scarlet Albatross as my memory of those characters were a little foggy...but truly loved it
