Description

In Storm Rising, mysterious mage-storms are wreaking havoc on Valdemar, Karse, and all the kingdoms of the West, plaguing these lands not only with disastrous earthquakes, monsoons, and ice storms, but also with venomous magical constructs - terrifying creatures out of nightmare. Both Valdemar's Heralds and Karse's Sunpriests struggle to marshal their combined magical resources to protect their realms from these devastating, spell-fueled onslaughts. But as the situation becomes bleaker and bleaker, the still fragile alliance between these long-hostile lands begins to fray. And unless Valdemar and Karse can locate and destroy the creator of the storms, they may see their entire world demolished in a final magical holocaust.

A great story

Where does Storm Rising rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Middling . . . the story is great, but the reading could use some work

What other book might you compare Storm Rising to and why?

Anything else by M. Lackey. It's very much in her style with many interesting characters but common threads bringing them all together.

What three words best describe David Ledoux’s voice?

Annoying, monotone, steady.

Get them all!

Audible needs to get evety book written that has anything to do with the Vadamar Series. Including the Black Griffin books. The stories are good enough to buy no matter who reads tjem.

How to ruin Mercedes Lackey

I didn't think it could be done, but here we are. Of all the people they could have had read stories by this author, WHY did it have to be this person? I have read Mercedes Lackey for most of my life and I'm a tried and true fan of her work. Having this man read has ruined the book. It is a truly terrible narration. Don't waist your time, your money, or your credits...

Terrible narration

Another good story by Lackey, but the kindle version is completely riddled with typos. Very annoying. The audible performance is terrible: the reading is painfully paced, with very long pauses between words or phrases which are alternately vocally drawn out or read quickly. On top of that, the narrator uses excessively dramatic intonation, making the story feel whiney and angsty.

make sure you have the next book

this ends in an almost cliffhanger, so make sure you have the next one (storm breaking) ready. this is a great book but does not stand alone, like many of Lackeys trilogies.

Calm down, please!

The guy who is reading this story sounds like he's on some sort of and feta mean all the time. I can never tell when the action in the story is building because the way the guy talks every. single. thing. he. does. is. exciting. It's as if this guy doesn't know how to modulate his voice at all. I like the story, but I really don't like the reader.

Narrator needs improvement

What did you like best about Storm Rising? What did you like least?

I like the story; I think it's a compelling divergence from her 'normal' novel in that it involves many more characters and storylines than her usual. I like the perspectives of Tremaine, Solaris, and Firesong; Firesong in particular has some interesting character development. Good job building up each character through their actions.

What other book might you compare Storm Rising to and why?

Storm Warning, but more involved into Tremaine.

Would you be willing to try another one of David Ledoux’s performances?

Only if he proofed his pronounciation!! "Duchy" is not pronounced 'ducky'. Lots of words that he should likely have looked up before reading them, and a few misplaced words here or there that weren't caught in the proofing.

Any additional comments?

Story is great; narration could be better.

Terrible Narrator

The narrator is truly terrible. I don’t know how he got the job to voice this, but it was a mistake.

Excellent but chapters don't match Kindle edition

Everything was perfect, but I really like being able to seamlessly switch between my Kindle and Audible and the chapters don't match up, so they don't sync correctly.
