Extended audio sample

This is the extended audio sample of A THRONE OF BONES. It is a one-hour, 44-minute recording that covers the entire battle between the Chalonu, Vakhuyu, and Insobru tribes and Legio XVII, commanded by Sextus Valerius Corvus.

If you enjoy it, you might want to consider picking up all 31 hours and 22 minutes of the audiobook+.

Thanks for this. I've often wondered in the case of an epic fantasy like this, do you as the author review the pronunciation of names with the narrator? When I'm reading something I'll come up with how I think the name sounds in my head, but I'm never sure if it's what the author intended.

I might begin doing audiobooks just to hear the correct pronunciations.

Excellent voice for an excellent book. March 1st when my monthly entertainment budget refreshes.

Holy Moses! That voice is so buttery smooth, I want to spread it on toast! I'm looking forward to this!

Will there be a darkstream?

Love my ATOB and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I normally don't do audiobooks but after listening to the sample, I'm heading over to purchase all 31+ hours. Daw's voice is perfect for this read. I guess a great story is compelling in all formats.

Are Castalia House audiobooks now exclusive or will they be available on Audible at a later date?

At about 1hr4mins the narrator repeats a passage.

I prefer to read rather than listen, but having never listened to an audio book before, I had to try the preview out.

It's very well done, but I think I'll stick to the text. This section took four or five times as long to listen to as it did to read the first time.

Still an awesome battle scene though, however you decide to imbibe it.

Okay. You got me. Perfect sample to get me engaged and familiar with the writing and storytelling style. And the amount of positioned but unresolved vectors by the end of the sample leave me trapped. Got to have it.

"At about 1hr4mins the narrator repeats a passage."

Did you try rebooting?

The great thing about A Throne of Bones is that I had to read it again before starting A Sea of Skulls, just to refresh my memory, and I'll likely do so a third time before re-reading ASOS when the update is released.

I bought three books with me to Europe, one of which was The Lord of the Rings, because these are the books I re-read regularly. The AODAL series looks to be becoming number four of that exclusive set.
