Summary

After hundreds of years without a true king, the desert land of Nezza is in danger of falling under the rule of a ruthless lord advised by an evil wizard with dark intentions. A desperate cry for help brings Alexander Taylor to this perilous land and sets events in motion that will require him to rescue an old friend from and impenetrable dungeon.
Once in Nezza, Alex meets a new band of adventurers and joins them in their quest to find young Prince Rallian - the man destined to become the rightful king of Nezza. In their path lies a deadly sand monster, a wise and insightful oracle, a massive army of illusions, and a host of lords and leaders ready to fight for - and against - the king of their land. But a dark shadow threatens Alex's every step. And in Nezza, a land where magic is feared and wizards are held in suspicion, Alex will have to be more wise and cunning than ever before if he and his friends are to succeed - or even survive.

Good story

I enjoyed the story, but the change of narrator threw me, and took a while to get used to. His style was quite different to the previous narrator.

Need this one reread

After listening to the first two books I could not get into this one as well the narrator was not a good pick for this if they could not get back the person who did the first two. Felt like the narrator rushed the telling of the story

I was disappointed.

What did you like best about Sands of Nezza? What did you like least?

The best part is the excitement of the book. The worst part is that Alex seems to be a hundred years old. His progression from the last book to this one was too abrupt. He seemed to grow in wisdom, maturity, skill, and experience almost overnight. It was hard reconciling this Alex with the Alex from the previous books. The narration is the worst part. The voice is too old sounding for a supposed older teenager. It gave the whole book a 'blah' feel.

Would you be willing to try another book from M. L. Forman? Why or why not?

Absolutely. It may just be the narration that made the characters seem strange.

What didn’t you like about R. C. Bray’s performance?

I didn't like it at all. Sorry! I don't like saying that. His voice was too mature. Alex seemed like an old man. There were other characters where he didn't seem to get a voice down. For example, one man sounded Scottish, the next time, it's not quite the same. In all honesty, the narration turned me off completely. After the first 3 books had a different man, who also took a little getting used to, to change the voice now, at book 4, was not good. He's also very flat sounding. The overriding emotional tone of Alex and others was vague disdain. It's hard to explain though. There wasn't enough feeling. You can hear excitement, happiness, disappointment, interest, annoyance, etc. in people's voices. A lot of that seemed to be missing from this reading.

Do you think Sands of Nezza needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Of course. I'd love to hear more Adventurer stories.
