One of the best classic fantasy stories ever made

Very few fantasy stories reach this level. Narrative preformed admarably. All in all a great experience.

FIRE NICOLE GREEVY!!!

I really love this book. It really disappointed me that it got such a shite narrator. Nicole turns in, what seems to be her trademark, lazy, monotonous reading. She sounds bored, and uninterested in the story she is telling.
Honestly, the only reason I was able to finish this audio book, is because of my love for the novel itself.
Amazon/Audible you can do better. Fire Nicole Greevy. She has ruined every novel she has read. She is the reason I have returned every other book in the Avatar series.

Out standing story... Weak narration

When I was a boy this was excellent story considering the preceding books..... The conceptualisation That the world is here for humans to make of it what they will.... At the gods control enormous power but must maintain a balance will they destroy all free will.... And make people dependent upon..... As a young man this was an interesting concept to explore in dealing with faith in the real world....
Either way it wasn't outstanding story....
The narrator Nicole greevy.... For she is probly best suited to be a commercial announcer on npr..... That she had a very flat presentation with every character for when she did try to make one character sound different from another in ended up coming off forced and very campy...... Certainly not somebody who's ever been trained in story telling..... However if you can get past her lackluster ability to tell the story it is an enjoyable book

If one word is false then they all are.

Another great story by Mr. Denning. Just not impressed with Nicole's story telling abilities. Still, a great story.
