I just loved this book and Derek Perkins brings it to life. Can't wait for book one.

Any additional comments?
I really wanted to love this book. I grew up reading the Dragon Lance series (Tracy Hickman) and Richard Garriott has been a childhood hero ever since I first played Ultima IV. I will read the next book when it comes out, but this one had some problems for a reader that has not played the associated game. I am very familiar with the concept of Avatars and the Virtues - thanks to ULTIMA - and I was aware going in that the story wasn't necessarily based in the Britannia universe I am used to. The story does start out very slowly and the character development is limited, with the exception of the protagonist. The story was engaging enough to keep me listening and not leave me entirely disappointed in the book. I loved the little references to a "Lord Brinish"and I can't say that the ending was entirely predictable, but the most immediate antagonist was pretty bland and uninteresting. I have high hopes for the next book.
