by | Read by Charles Keating

Fantasy • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2002

This installment in the series that began with THE SWORD OF SHANNARA is full of pursuit and battles, magic and brute strength, intrigue and old secrets. Although it is an abridgment, the plot is full, the characters complete, and Charles Keating is a storyteller worthy of the tale. He narrates with an intensity that focuses attention on the core relationships between the central characters. Using adjustments in pace as an effective tool, he smoothly shifts mood as he moves between segments of the plot. His narration has the air of a historian taking care to stay true to the events he has witnessed. J.E.M.
