Fantastic storytelling

Very enjoyable and easy to imagine the characters while listening. The narrator did an excellent job.

Excellent

I’ve played in Eberron and DM’d it for about 4-5 years. This is the seventh Eberron book I’ve listened to and far and away the best. Robin Sachs’ gravelly voice is perfect for this and the Lore is deep.

Couldn't stop listening.

Loved it, what a great book. Thoroughly enjoyed the hobgoblin politics. I can't wait to listen to the next two!

Best D&D book and narrator for audiobook yet.

Gives a new perspective on goblinoids, rather than just making them monsters. Was very happy to see they keep the same narrator for the whole trilogy as he's the best I've heard. So many voices.

Fun adventure!

This definitely worth the purchase. My only complaint was in the story was sometimes I found it difficult to know who were goblins and and who were humans.

The narrator was like an audio version of a nice steak house- hearty, good, and resonate.

Well done!

Robin Sachs does a fantastic job narrating, with his strong and gravely voice capturing the speech style of the characters in the book. Don Bassingthwaite does a pretty good job of immersing one in the fantastic world of Eberron. Epic fantasy, battles, magic and quests are present throughout. I enjoyed this book greatly

A little too political

I love D&D, but this is a little too much court intrigue for me. word-count.
