Fantasy • 31 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

This story, like other epic fantasies, has long-winded details that overload the listener. Names, titles, and places could further debilitate fans, since the audiobook lacks the appendices featured in the book. However, John Lee compensates for these challenges with a professional resilience that maintains continuity. Lee subtly indicates what passages are relevant and what parts are inconsequential. Characterizations remain steady throughout, and, since the first book, Lee has kept his vocal personalities distinct and consistent. As the fourth book in a six-book series, Martin sets up a variety of plots that provide excitement while priming his audience for an explosive conclusion. Lee 's performance drags you in deeper.
