Audible Editor Reviews

Fans of Judith Tarr's work will be satiated by her usual blend of fantasy and historical drama, taking a half-immortal, supernatural prince on a quest to avenge his slain murdered nephew in the setting of the crusades. The time period and the Middle Eastern backdrop are described vividly as the adventure takes off. James Patrick Cronin gives the audiobook a dramatic performance setting a brooding, engaging pace and hitting the emotive notes as they occur.

Atmospheric and spellbinding - a wonderful author

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Some of my favourite books don't translate too well to audio format, but it's perfect for this book - really builds up the pictures in the mind.


What other book might you compare Alamut to, and why?

The Dagger and the Cross - the sequel


What does James Patrick Cronin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He reads well and does different characters well, both male and female. It made me look at the book from a different viewpoint - I have owned the book for many years.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Magic and mystery - fantasy of an alternate history


Any additional comments?

I have bought many books I already own as audio books as I can listen while driving, gardening or doing any other chores
