Summary

Long recovered from the ravages of the Riftwar, the land and people of the kingdom of the Isles thrive. Nicholas, the youngest son of Prince Arutha, is intelligent and gifted but vastly inexperienced. In hopes of hardening him, his father sends him and his irreverent squire, Harry, to live at Rustic Castle Crydee to learn of life beyond the halls of privilege. But within weeks of Nicholas and Harry's arrival, Crydee is viciously attacked by unknown assailants, resulting in murder, massive destruction, and the abduction of two young noblewomen. The raiders have come from a pirate haven and are no ordinary foe...but an enemy connected to dark magical forces that threaten the lands Nicholas will someday rule - if he survives.

Great story, horrible narration.

I’m not going to even get into it. I have never heard someone mispronounce Names and even basic ordinary words so horribly wrong. Thank god I love the author or I would have stopped listening.

Awfully narrated

This is one of my favorite books in my favorite series and the narrator ruined it.
it..is..almost.. as..if..a .. poor.. William..Shatner..impersonator..read..this..to me.
I finally made it through to the end only because my hardback is on loan.
One of the most thrilling and adventurous tales ever told read to you in such a way that your algebra textbook is more riveting

Don't wear headphones

While I realize that the characters might be yelling in the book when the narrator yells and it is substantially louder than the general audio of the book it can be painful for those wearing headphones The story is good and fits in well with the rest of the author's works the narration volume is not only distracting but physically painful that well over a dozen points in the story.

I would strongly advise not listening to this with headphones, as these volume points can come unexpectedly and they are absolutely ear piercing.

Another great book

Another great book by Feist. Too bad Audio doesn't carry all of his work. Unfortunately
