Dragon Bones has always been my favourite of Patricia Brigg's books. Traditional fantasy with interesting characters and no easy answers. The narrator does a masterful job and, in my opinion, he gets each of the characters to perfection. Recommended.

Just the right blend of fantasy and believable characters that behave in ways that make sense.Not many heroes have had to pretend to be an idiot so they aren't murdered by their own father. This one does. He knows the pain of betrayal but while it has made him cautious it hasn't made him bitter. He is forced to prove himself, redeem his family's heritage while avoiding dying or becoming a permanent resident in the High King's Asylum for Noble Embarrassments. There is also a bit of humor in all the right places and a hint of romance that might show up in the next book in the series. Also I loved the narration itself. Way to go Joe Manganiello. This is an audiobook that I'll be listening to again

This is my first audio book download so I wasn't sure what to expect but I've enjoyed other novels by Patricia Briggs and I am also a fan of Joe Manganiello so I gave it a shot. What a wonderful experiance ! Listened all the way through on my trip from South Carolina to New Hamphire and the time flew by. Can't wait for the next book in the series. Think I'll be listening to the book again as I shop and wrap presents.
Ms Briggs has a way of using the classic hero's journey filled with mages, powerful bad guys, battles, treachery and even a dragon to move things along but she didn't leave out the element of humanity that makes me care about the characters.If you loved Dragonlance as a kid like I did then you too will probably enjoy the more mature Dragon Bones.
