All of which the narrator presents sublimely. In my head, just spent a lot of hours with Archmaester Gyldayn himself. The narrator’s voice, presentation, and inflection were supremely well suited for a work like this, and I applaud the producer that made this happen. Indeed, he may in large part be the reason I found this book as engrossing as I did. Kudos to you all for this happy match.
If you’re a GoT fan, go buy this audiobook now and savor every beautiful page just like I did. This is such a stunning addition to the series and I loved every single page of it.
It’s incredibly detailed and gives such an interesting look at how Westeros came to be the world we all know and love. Getting to learn so much about the dragons and their riders and how they conquered the Seven Kingdoms was such a treat and I could have kept on reading about it forever!
Fire & Blood Audiobook Free is not high fantasy, apart from being set in a high fantasy setting and containing dragons. Don’t expect any elucidation on the higher mysteries from this book.
