Publisher's Summary

Beautiful as she is deadly, Liriel Baenre flits throught the shadows of Menzoberranzan, city of the dark elves. Amid treachery and murder that are the drow's daily fare, she feels something calling to her...something beyond this dusky world far removed from the sun. Yet as she ventures toward the surface and the lands of light, enemies pursue her unceasingly.
And one enemy may offer her the only hope of salvation.

great story poorly read.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes have it read by someone else.


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

Victor bevine.

Dara rosenberg what can I say. This is the first audio book with her narrating and I will not buy another. She has a very strange halting reading style with emphasis in all the wrong places resulting in a painful listen. Maybe she is uncomfortable with the fantasy genre. I had to stop listening an hour in.

I get the impression she is reading a line then thinking about it then trying to say it with weird pronunciation.

Wish I could get my money back on this.

Did anyone ever consider pronunciation?

What made the experience of listening to Daughter of the Drow the most enjoyable?

The fact that there is an off button.


What other book might you compare Daughter of the Drow to, and why?

None


How could the performance have been better?

Have someone who can pronounce Menzoberranzan, and speaks English on a regular basis. This performance could have been much better done by a parrot, do the performers actually listen to what they've recorded, this is dreadful! I will not be completing the download and wish to cancel the order!


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

Played the game, read the books, will not listen to them on Audible.


Any additional comments?

Never again! I will not buy anything narrated by this person, stilted narration, mis-pronunciation, all in all a terrible experience. A wonderful series of books yet they have been ruined by the pathetic attempts to tell the tale.
