Publisher's Summary

Jack has caused an earthquake. He was trying to save his sister, Lucy, from being thrown down a well, but he is, after all, only a 13-year-old bard in training. Sometimes the magic doesn't quite work out. Not only does Jack demolish a monastery, but Lucy is carried off by the Lady of the Lake. Jack has to follow her through the Hollow Road that lies underground. It leads to all sorts of unexpected places: caves full of dragon poop, knucker holes (you do not want to know what knuckers are), and Elfland. He is aided by Pega, a slave girl, and the berserker Thorgil, whom Jack rescues from being devoured by moss.

On the way they meet hobgoblins, kelpies, yarthkins and elves - not the enchanted sprites one would expect but fallen angels who steal human children for pets. It is the year 790 and the world is caught between belief in the old gods and Christianity. What Jack and his companions do will decide the fate of both religions.

    "I loved it"

    I did not want the book to ever end. The storytellers voice reminded me of the bard himself. I loved it!

    "Part of Chapter 5 seems to be missing."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Any additional comments?

    In chapter 5 at about an hour and eight minutes in the narrator says "shil" about to say shield maiden when it skips ahead an unknown amount of time. The characters are acting differently because of whatever happened in the time it skipped. I deleted the book and redownloaded it and it still skips at the same time.

    "Love the series!"

    I love tales of Jack and his adventures and the narrator is amazing. The only thing that bothered me about this recording was that it skipped twice. It didn't seem like it skipped a lot but it was a little disappointing. Other than that this recording was great!
