God erindrings bog, som går dybt I og lader os forstå Hr. Ramussen som dreng inden krigen og ung mand under krigen. Selv om der uden tvivl er renvask af egen sides handlinger så er det næsten altid sagen I alle erindringer.

Bogens oplæsning er dog til tider noget rodet og oplæseren taber til tider tråden og lyder forvirret.

Dark Romance indeed

My first book in this genre, normally i do fantasy or historical.
I must say Tears of Tess is a wild story, all the stop's have been pulled. The book stays clear of usual cliche's and is unpredictable which is great and its easy to get "captured" by the story.

The performance was exceptional, Hannah Belle's voice is so beyond perfect. Like liquid sugar for your ears.

Too fictional for me

A very well written book with a high level performance from the narrator. However not a book for me.

I really wanted to like this book but the huge deviations and simplifications of history is too much. Julius Caesar did not have a simple life and the times he lived in were not simple either. I would have much prefer it done with greater emphasis on accuracy and made the book twice as long than a made up story in dressed like Caesar. I fear it will only get worse as Brutus here is even more fictional than the events around Marius.

in short I cannot recommend it

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Mr. Salvatore is as always very good. I think it was maybe the book was too short

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was anti climatic. We all knew the orcs would lose ofcz. However with the massive build up and dire situation the Silver Marches were in, the final battle and ending was just too short and undetailed. Its hard to measure distances but the orc army had travelled for weeks out of Dark Arrow and an army simply isnt routed that far, that fast, no matter how many dragons are around, with no supplies alone for 100k orcs they would have all died of thirst and stavation. The retreat will slow and so will the hunting victorious army as men, orcs and beast's get tired. Then armies must reform and resume a steady progress, because if the routed army can rally before the chattered attackers you may yet lose the battle.

It just felt after the orcs where defeated, the ending couldn't come fast enough, and viola
ready for new adventures. Not at all as good or believable as the end to the Obuld war.

Did Victor Bevine do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Mr. Bevine did a good job as ususal, as i personally listen to audiobooks at work with noice and such, the very very soft spoken dialogue can been too whispered as times, but i understand the effect he tries to get.

Was Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf worth the listening time?

It was well worth the time, my criticism above aside it was a good enough book and another listen may soften me.

Well done-Our fav. band is back

That was just what i needed!
I listen to the books at work, when alone or driving, fortunately i was able to finish this book in 2 days, i could not leave it once i began.

I will be honest i havnt liked the books in the Neverwinter trilogy much, Last Threshold was not too bad. I also wasnt sure i could forgive RA Salvatore for making good old proud Pwent into a vampire without any seemingly deeper meaning. Some of us are sentimental you know.

Little did i realize it was all a plot hehe
I was dubious about the idea of reincarnation of the heroes, they did so well in life and how could a new life live up to that.

Again i was proven wrong
Amazing book!
Back with the swing of a notched axe!

I wont bring any spoilers but it brought me back to the days of the halflings gem, only this time i already love the characters and been thru so much.

Extremely well done Mr. Salvatore
