Captivating Story

I thoroughly enjoyed The Golden Queen. It had the winning combo of an interesting and varied setting, fascinating three-dimensional characters and a captivating storyline. Perhaps it was having a bear as one of the main characters but I found the story reminded me of The Golden Compass. I also found the narration very well done. The varied accents of the narrator made it easy to keep the characters apart without being over stated or distracting. An overall well done reading/listening experience.

A Strong Opening Book To A Galaxy-Spanning Trilogy

If you follow scifi and fantasy writers, you know that David Farland can write, and write well. But...

Is THIS first book in the Golden Queen trilogy more of the same? I am happy to report that it most definitely is just that - An engaging, solid noteworthy first of three books.

This audiobook will capture your imagination, and actually trick you a bit. At first, you'll be completely convinced that it's a fantasy novel. Later, you'll realize that it's actually high scifi. What begins on one world and its diverse peoples and animals (talking bears, for instance), quickly moves to gateways between worlds and human and insect galactic civilizations at war. There are heroes, heroines, anti-heroes, twists, turns, plots, discovery, and ultimately enjoyment.

I found myself easily pulled into this broad, sweeping epic, and when that happens, the author has achieved his or her desire - The reader has been pulled into a world totally designed by the author, and in doing so, suspends reality in lieu of the story.

I liked this audiobook very much, and recommend it highly to you, my fellow Audible listener.

Step forward through the gate, and begin your journey.
