There was a little discussion about this author and this trilogy over a year ago, I believe. I noticed that audible has the first two books coming available and narrated by Simon Vance. Has anyone read them? I think Genie read the first and so, I was wondering what reaction our wonderful readers had to it. comments????

Genie - you are too funny - lol! I'm hoping that since audible has the first two, they will eventually get the third. Sheesh - that third book is pricey and hard to come by!

Did you read the first two already? Audible has the first for under $5 for members!

No, I haven't read them Genie and I believe that price is only applicable if you originally bought the Kindle books (unless you are getting a special deal). Audible is offering a "buy 4 and get $10.00 back deal" this month. I bought two books with credits and then bought one with cash for only 3.99 since I had the Kindle edition (I'm referring to another book altogether), so I have 3 this month so far. The offer ends at the end of the month. I thought that since the first Hereward audio book was 12+ dollars that I would use my 10.00 toward that after buying the second Hereward (that will make 4 books)- since it is pricier. ( SENIORS ya know - always looking for a bargain). Does this make any sense to you?

I checked with my library to see if Overdrive or oneclickdigital has these books and they don't. Did I mention that DH gave me my Christmas present early? It's a Surface 2 tablet and now I can get even more at the library than just the Kindle books. Oneclickdigital isn't set up yet for Surface 2 but they are working on it....Oh God, please let me take the electronics with me wherever I go so I can catch up on my reading - for eternity! winkdevil

Jeanne, the first book isnt out for the Kindle in the US, so I dont have it. The price I got at Audible was a sale price for members. It counted toward my 4 for $10 deal too.

Whelp, Jeanne, it turns out you were right and I did read (and own) the Kindle version of book 1. As soon as I started listening to it, I remembered the story. Still, listening to Simon Vance tell it makes it worth reading again.

Thats what i get for being so dependent on AZN to tell me what Ive already purchased. LOL

Glad you are liking it, Genie. I'll be getting it too!

Amazon comes out with different versions from time to time and that changes the ASIN number - as I'm sure you know - and THAT makes it very confusing. I've ordered more than one copy of the same book before but thank heaven, they were freebies! lol!
