Following on from the release of Island of Fog in audiobook format back in March 2015, the second book is also now available. Labyrinth of Fire can be purchased from Audible, Amazon (US), Amazon (UK), and also on iTunes.See both books on Audible here.
Once again, Fred Wolinsky somehow managed to maintain the identity of each character while adding a variety of new ones. You almost don't need any dialog tags at all (Hal said, Abigail exclaimed, etc) because the voices are so distinctive.
My personal favorite part of this book in terms of action is the harpy raid on the town of Louis. I remember thinking, "Man, this is a great book! I wonder who wrote it? Oh, wait, it was me..." Hehe. The subsequent events up on Harpy Hill are good too, with all the scratchy harpy voices really adding to their vileness.
As I said in a previous post... If you've read the series (or at least the first book), I hope you'll find it interesting to listen to it played out by a talented narrator. I know of some fans who often read it to their children or class, so it could actually be useful and fun to have an audiobook AND a book so that listeners can hear and read the words at the same time. If you're not an Audible member, you can get the audiobook for free by signing up and becoming a member today.
This book is 9 hours 54 minutes in length.
Next up is Mountain of Whispers. Fred Wolinsky will be starting that shortly, and the absolute latest it will be published is December 1st 2015, probably much earlier.
Let me know what you think!
