Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Gramayre - where witches, warlocks, elves, and gnomes are real; where a spoiled girl-queen and an army of teenage witches, and ragtag beggars battle an overwhelming force of rebel knights and time-travelling anarchists for the future of the most unique, and perhaps most important, planet in the galaxy.
This is what cynical, hard-bitten, intergalactic spy Rod Gallowglass faces when he and his robot horse, Fess, try to bring peace and democracy to this magic-ridden Renaissance-age society. Rod's mission is threatened at every turn by anarchists, communists, and double-dealing royalists playing vicious political power games. Things are made even worse when Rod's advanced technology gets him labeled a warlock despite his constant denials. Help comes from the most unexpected sources when he meets an ancient ghost, the King of the Elves, and the most powerful witch on the planet.
This classic science-fantasy novel has been completely remixed to address issues with uneven volume some readers have experienced.
Gramayre comes to life in 11 hours of dramatic sword-and-sorcery, featuring well-known narrator Dennis Regan and a full cast.

Magic

I have read all of the Warlock series so was delighted to find one finally come to Audible. These books are full of humour, emotion and adventure. This one is fully narrated and acted to a degree you rarely find in Audio Books from any source. I did find the narration a little fast but on a second listen found it not so bad. The only problem seems to be a failure to make all the sounds hearable but, given the plot, it is forgivable. Some things are meant to be background or far away noises but it does detract a bit when you need to hear what is being said. Overall, however, I rated this 5 stars because of the quality and characterisation. Try this, you won't regret it and I only hope more become available.
