What the Critics Say

"This story collection truly has something for everyone who loves the fantasy genre, especially as enhanced by some of the best voices in the business.... The uniform voice of Victor Bevine introduces each of the stories - sounding every bit the rogue with his gravelly timbre and tying together the wide range of worlds and narrators in this lengthy production."

Don't know about the story, the narrator killed it. I couldn't bear more than 10 minutes. No expression life or interest. I lost it within 2 or 3 mins but at 10 felt like throwing my phone over a hedge and walking on. Sorry, waste of money.
I only gave 1 star because I had to.
