Summary

This is the story of Stavin Kel'Aniston. A boy trained as a warrior, he serves his people as a caravan guard to obtain gold for their community. Stavin earned dragon-scale armor from the dragon on the mountain for his bravery, but the gift of the dragon comes at a price.

Thieves, brigands, and ne'er-do-wells of every kind are attracted to Stavin. As the summer passes, Stavin fights for his life and the honor of his name.

I've always loved this book.

This is one of those books where the underdog almost has superpowers. His superpowers don't necessarily come from being stronger faster better than everyone else. To a degree he is better because of his own personal struggles. I just find myself really liking the main character. His morals, integrity and overall character make this a fun book.

Great story. Good narrator.

Many of the Male voices sound almost the same but it's rarely an issue. Overall the narrator is really good for sure.

This book is really good.
Main character is not necessarily OP, he's more of an under-dog but even then not really because his skill with his choice weapon is unrivaled. He's just short and skinny.

Also he has dragon armor that's really OP!
No weapons can penetrate the armor. And it's lightweight, so that's cool right.

All That Glitters

The book and series are the best, I have ever read. The author's excellent story telling combined with her sense of humour turns out a delightful and intriguing tale. Not only are you breathlessly turning every page, you are already thinking about the next book in the series. You will be swept away by the magnificent warrior's courage, honor and sense of duty.

Honest Review

If you like violence and a straight forward plot you will like this. No stupid MC just action and consequences.

Great beginning but what happened to the climax?

I loved the first 1 1/2 hours. We were listening in the car with my teens, one 16 one 13. We were fine until the character got married and his hand reached between her legs. Off went the book and we were all disappointed. That part in the book is very mild but we felt it inappropriate to continue. I finished it to write this.

The book reads like a fairy tale. I have no idea regarding trees or how things looked. There is so much description left out. However, the character belongs to a war-like polite society? Talk about weird! Then the book turns into a travel log about how many men were killed, how many honors were awarded because of that, and what plunder and gold they got. There were several things mentioned that I thought might have given the character development, but no. I thought there might have been a climax at least, but no. They went home and bought presents for their wives. The only real description was about how they killed each man. One mention of that would be enough, but no..... they had to relive their kill in gory detail.

I did not like this book and will return it. I don't want my teens to hear it. So sad with such a great start.

Awesome story needs more variety

What made the experience of listening to All That Glitters the most enjoyable?

The man had several accents down but he needs to vary his tone between the main a secondary characters because they sound the same a lot. Decent but needs more variety of tones and voices to get five stars from me.

What did you like best about this story?

The tale of 'May you live interesting times' was done very well and showed a good divergence of chosen one syndrome. The main character is not chosen because of some Grand destiny or fate but because he was brave enough o go further than those that came before him.

No plot.

Unless you count leveling as a plot. Started out promising, then left me hanging.
