One of the most beloved characters in the series

What did you like most about Jimmy the Hand?

This is a book that details the origins of Jimmy the hand, one of the most iconic characters in the riftwar saga. The archetypal rogue, he goes from one adventure to another seamlessly. Its great to have a story from the perspective of the cunning thief for once, instead of the same old daring adventurers, or goody-good party out to save the world. Jimmy is in it for his own interest and has only his wits to keep him alive, very tense scenes and lots of intrigue await. This is a true gem

What did you like best about this story?

The new perspective, and the way Jimmy manipulates his environment and resources to get what he wants. A detailed character study, with great delivery, allowing you to become involved in the psychology of the main character. Very fun.

What does Matt Bates bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Brings life to the scenes and to the struggles of each character, with an animated tone.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes of course
