Summary

When the Royal Wizard of Westland poisons the king so that his puppet prince can take the throne and start a continental war, a young squire is forced to run for his life carrying the powerful sword that his dying monarch burdened him with from the death bed.
Two brothers find a magic ring and start on paths to becoming the most powerful sort of enemies, while an evil young sorceress unwillingly falls in love with one of them when he agrees to help her steal a dragon's egg for her father. Her father just happens to be the Royal Wizard, and despite his daughter's feelings, he would love nothing more than to sacrifice the boy!
All of these characters, along with the Wolf King of Wildermont, the Lion Lord of Westland, and a magical hawk named Talon, are on a collision course toward Willa the Witch Queen's palace in the distant kingdom of Highwander. There the very bedrock is formed of the powerful magical substance called Wardstone.
Who are the heroes? And will they get there before the Royal Wizard and his evil hordes do?
Whatever happens, the journey will be spectacular, and the confrontation will be cataclysmic.

Why can you not give a rating of zero?

What made the experience of listening to The Sword and the Dragon, Revised the most enjoyable?

The book narration was so bad, after 30 minutes of listening, I had to pull my ear buds out or go mad!!! I liken it to having a nail stuck in the tread of a tire as you drive on a hard surface road. I had written a lot more, but on reflection decide to be nice. On the other hand, when you order steak and are brought a hot dog, you may offer an opinion.

How could the performance have been better?

The answer is explained above.

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

are you kidding?

Richly imagined characters in an epic world

What made the experience of listening to The Sword and the Dragon, Revised the most enjoyable?

Clearly narrated with good diction. The narration could have been more dynamic at times but fortunately the character's voices shine through. Dialogue is a definite strength in this book and it comes across strongly in the audio version.

It was great revisiting this story and being able to lie back and listen to the narration. Love the opening cliff scene.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sword and the Dragon, Revised?

Without giving away spoilers, the Loudin kite scene.

What three words best describe Chris Dorman’s voice?

Clear. Paced. Versatile.

Any additional comments?

Sprawling epic fantasy written with a deft hand and an eye for the little details that make the characters -- even the non-humans -- recognisably human. Mathias has a knack of surprising the reader with twists and turns and character foibles.
