Men, Elves, Dwarves, and doughty warrows - their state is desperate but their courage is high. For if they fail, there comes the unending Darkest Day. If they succeed, all will see the dawn of a New Age of legend and glory....
This is a great series and I love this author. The Iron Tower trilogy and Silver Call duolgy both contrubuted to an intense love of the fantasy genre.
Nice along the lines of Lord of the Rings as it was meant to be, but it would have been better with wizards. :)
An incredible end to an incredible seriess! This trilogy was my first experience with this author, and I can't wait to read more.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Mr. McKiernan offers you a great adventure that leaves you imagining how you would perform if you were part of the heroic group. You may even imagine yourself as a new character with unique strengths and intelligence that helps the heroes to win their battles within and without. You never feel like you are a spectator. You feel like you should be an active member contributing to their objectives and their ultimate goal.
Fantasy is like a sport in which you wish that you were there. Enjoy the sport!
