Summary

Six years had passed since the redoubtable knight Sparhawk had triumphed over the evil God Azash and returned to Elenia with Queen Ehlana, his bride. And now a new danger had arisen to threaten the peace of Ehlana's realm. The trouble had started quietly. At home, bandits began to plague the hill country. In neighboring Lamorkand, the customary political unrest turned ominous with whispers that the bloody heroes of old soon would rise again. And travelers reported that the Trolls had all disappeared from the icy northern haunts of Thalesia. Simple problems, apparently unrelated - until an ambassador arrived from the far-off Tamul empire, begging Sparhawk's aid. These same dangers that stalked Ehlana's kingdom had already struck his realm full-force. The fabled ancient warriors of Tamuli had indeed returned - intent on carnage. Monsters and fell magics had followed, and the havoc and terror they spawned were tearing the empire apart. The empire had sent for the Pandion Knight who had killed the God Azash. If Sparhawk wanted to stop this danger before it could savage his own land, he now must lend his aid. Sparhawk, Ehlana, and their daughter, Princess Danae, agreed to make the grueling trek to the far-distant empire of the east. They traveled in company with a handful of trusted companions: the stalwart champions of the four Militant Orders, the knight Berit, Mirtai the giantess, and the young thief Talen. With the child-goddess Aphrael to speed their journey, they began the treacherous traverse of the utmost reaches of the Daresian continent, to Tamul's distant capital. There, in the emperor's glittering court, they would encounter corruption, treachery - and a greater danger than any man had faced before!

Pronunciations changed on purpose?

It feels as though the narrator listened to the first trilogy and change all pronunciations on purpose. Maybe the intention was to make this 2nd trilogy "his own" but it's just annoying. If it wasn't purposeful I'd recommend researching earlier audiobooks with the same characters before recording new ones with a different narrator to avoid such issues.

love the author

I love these books. I'm not 100% sure on the narrator of these 3 books. but It grows on you. not as good as the Dimoned throne narrator. That's my only issue.

Unsatisfactory attempt!

Domes of Fire is the forth book in a continuing series which started with "The Diamond Throne" in David Eddings' saga called "The Elenium." Although it is possible to follow the 6 book series by starting with "Domes of Fire," you will lose quite a bit of the back story and character development which most people find essential. I have read the entire six book series quite a few times and managed to find something new each time through.

There is, however, a problem with this audio rendition of the second half of the series. Kevin Pariseau made almost no attempt to learn the "correct pronunciation" of either the proper names of the people or the places in the series - even though they were well established in the first three books. Nor does he make much of an attempt to give the characters distinctive voices. Accordingly, his narration voice sounds about the same as the voices he gives to most of the leading and supporting cast members, and the women and children all sound like men. The result is a most unsatisfactory listening experience.

I give the six book series by David Eddings 5 stars, The producers and Directors at Audible Frontiers 1 star, and narration of Kevin Pariseau, in the last 3 books, 0 stars.

Others are free to disagree as they see fit.

Disliked Narrator

What made the experience of listening to Domes of Fire the most enjoyable?

I already own the book, so enjoy the story

What did you like best about this story?

I love the interaction between the characters

How could the performance have been better?

Narrator could have listened to previous narration - so pronucation of names would be similar and could have made the characters sound more mature ..Sparhawk and his fellow knights sounded like young men instead of seasoned warriors...

Any additional comments?

I wish publishing companies would try to keep the same narrator for a series or at least make sure each narrator pronouces names the same way
