Beautiful as she is deadly, Liriel Baenre flits throught the shadows of Menzoberranzan, city of the dark elves. Amid treachery and murder that are the drow's daily fare, she feels something calling to her...something beyond this dusky world far removed from the sun. Yet as she ventures toward the surface and the lands of light, enemies pursue her unceasingly.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes have it read by someone else.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

Victor bevine.

Dara rosenberg what can I say. This is the first audio book with her narrating and I will not buy another. She has a very strange halting reading style with emphasis in all the wrong places resulting in a painful listen. Maybe she is uncomfortable with the fantasy genre. I had to stop listening an hour in.

I get the impression she is reading a line then thinking about it then trying to say it with weird pronunciation.

Wish I could get my money back on this.
