Publisher's Summary

Everyone in the kingdom talked about the King-in-waiting, Roland's elder son, Peter. And one man thought and planned and brooded on something else: how to make sure that Roland's younger son, Thomas, should be crowned King instead. The King is dead, murdered by an unusual poison. While evidence is gathered, and the land of Delain mourns, Flagg, the King's magician, unscrupulous, greedy and powerful, plots.

Soon the King's elder son, Peter, is imprisoned in the needle, the top of a high tower, for his father's murder. And Thomas inherits the throne. Only Peter knows the truth of his innocence, and the true evil that is Flagg. Only Peter can save Delain from the horror the magician has in store. He has a plan, but it is rife with danger. And if he fails, he won't get a second chance....

A captivating tale of heroic adventure, of dragons and princes, of mysterious mice and men from the pen of the master storyteller.

    "A fairy tale for grown-ups."

    Brilliant.... The best audio book I have listened to. I actually read The Eyes of the Dragon years ago when it was first published and though my memory of the story had faded over time I nevertheless remembered it as being a compelling story. So, seeing it appear on Audible, I decided to give it another "read". Bronson Pinchot's narration is one of the best I've heard. He reads with a theatrical ability that adds depth to the characters and atmosphere to this dark tale of injustice and wizardry, all but turning it into a dramatisation. I shall be keeping my eye out for books specifically narrated by Bronson Pinchot from now on.
    King's story-telling is legendary, as anyone who has read The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Tower, The Stand, to name but a few, will tell you. Though this is a break away from King's usual subject matter and more of a fantasy (think Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin) he manages to spin a yarn as believable as Shawshank. Not just for fans of Stephen King, but anyone who enjoys fantasy tales with a mix of tension and suspense. Utter brilliance all round. Get it.
