Ode to a Nightingale

When faced with a looming fate he cannot ignore, he must rise beyond anything he's ever known Young Lerris is dissatisfied with his life and trade, and yearns to find a place in the world better suited to his skills and temperament. But in Recluce a change in circumstances means taking one of two options: permanent exile from Recluce or braving the dangergeld, a complex, rule-laden wanderjahr in the lands beyond Recluce, with the aim of learning how the world works and what his place in it might be.

Many do not survive. Lerris chooses the dangergeld. Life is simple in Ben's small town until an attack brings the arrival of exciting strangers straight out of a story. Before Ben understands what is happening, he embarks on a dangerous journey to help his friends. A mage, demons, thieves, and assassins are just a few of the perils he will face while trying to make it to safety. But things aren't always what they seem, and safety is a fragile concept when the destructive behaviors of the powerful are exercised unchecked.

Aren has lived by the rules all his life. He's never questioned it; that's just the way things are. But then his father is executed for treason, and he and his best friend, Cade, are thrown into a prison mine, doomed to work until they drop. Unless they can somehow break free But what lies beyond the prison walls is more terrifying still. Rescued by a man who hates him yet is oath-bound to protect him, pursued by inhuman forces, Aren slowly accepts that everything he knew about his world was a lie.

Rigel has always known he is not quite human, but the only clue to his origin is the otherworldly bracelet he has worn since childhood. His search for his parentage leads him to the Starlands, where reality and fantasy have changed places. There he learns that he is a human-starborn cross, and his bracelet is the legendary magical amulet Saiph, which makes its wearer an unbeatable swordsman. The Coldfire trilogy tells a story of discovery and battle against evil on a planet where a force of nature exists that is capable of reshaping the world in response to psychic stimulus.

This terrifying force, much like magic, has the power to prey upon the human mind, drawing forth a person's worst nightmare images or most treasured dreams and indiscriminately giving them life.

Ever since, the land has belonged to man, and the oceans have remained an uncrossable hell, leaving the continent of Lok isolated. For a millennium, the Children of Amarid have served the people of Tobyn-Ser. Drawing upon the Mage-Craft, which flows from the psychic bond they forge with their avian familiars, the Mages of the Order have fulfilled their oaths by healing the injured and ill, repelling invasions by the land's enemies, and caring for the people in times of crisis.

They are governed by laws handed down by Amarid, the first of their kind, who committed the Mage-Craft to the people's protection. Only once in a thousand years has a mage defied those laws. Princess Inos lived an idyllic life in her fathers' sleepy, backwater kingdom, and she was best friends with her childhood companion, the stableboy, Rap. But when a prophecy seemed to say Inos should be married, she was exiled to the Impire to learn to be a lady. She was far away when Rap's magical talents began to emerge, and it was he who told her of the fate awaiting them both.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? In the book format, this was a series I could fall back into time and time again. The audible version has great narration that is flawless, I fell in love with the characters all over again and am looking forward for the rest of the books to come out. What other book might you compare Magic Casement to and why? Nothing really compares to the Man of His Word series, I compare other series to it.

This is the only book on Audible that I've heard Mil read, he does it like he's been doing it for years. He sounds like the voice in my head. If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be? Magic, true love and an adventure that you will never forget. Any additional comments?

About This Item

Try this out, you won't be disappointed. Although the book might sound typical, with a princess, a castle, a magical history, and an stableboy as an unlikely hero , they way author Dave Duncan sets up the rules of the world is interesting. Magic Casement introduces you to the players, and starts to introduce the world to the characters, and to the reader. The first thing that you notice are that there are no "humans" as a separate race. There are Imps, and Jotnar, and Elves, and Goblins, and Gnomes, and others, all of which are just people. Second, there is magic But there are rules to magic, and it all centers on "Words of Power", and the great Warlocks and Witches in the capitol of the Impire.

But these are things that the residents of remote Kagaznagar care little for, and know even less about. But when the king Holindarn becomes ill, it sets in motion an incredible adventures for the Princess Inosolan, and he childhood friend, and stable-boy, Rap. As Inosolan is introduces to fine living, and the expectations of royalty, Rap is thrown into the disgusting and horrid world of goblins. As they experience more of the world around them, they begin to understand how precarious their kingdom, and even their lives, actually are.

This is the first book or 4, so it does start a little slow, and it seems to end rather abruptly. On its own, it would need to be longer. As part 1 of Mil Nicholson does a good job of keeping the voices and accents separate and distinct, and her British accent lends an aura to this reading.

She does the ladies' and boyish voices well, but seems to be a little lacking in some of the men's voices. I first read this series long ago. I have been waiting for ages for it to come out in audio format. It is as good as I remember. I couldn't put it down. I am hoping for the last book to come out soon. This is one I could listen to over and over. For me Dave Duncan worlds always are set somewhere in our own world then expanded by a touch of magic. Actually in this case much more than a touch.

Here is a mostly Celtic set at the high of the another Empire much like later Rome Imperim. I liked the main character - cheering for many. None are too sweet and they believable flawed. The book is wonderful and if the story is not totally original it is satisfactory told.

  • For Duncan normal habits are broken a bit - told story is told from a couple of character views; magic is a much bigger deal than in the Venise or Seventh Swords series. But the magic is clearly understandable rules and in keeping with general modern ideas of Celtic magic. My only problem with the book is that it ends so quickly that one feels that there should be a second download not another book.

    Not totally cliff hanger just rather incomplete ending. What made the experience of listening to Magic Casement the most enjoyable? I enjoyed the book and I'm looking forward to listening to the second, however - This recording is missing the last paragrah of the story.

    The way it ended seemed a little off so I checked an online version of the full bood and there is a very important part missing. Cliff-hangers can be frustrating. I felt that this book ended just before a climax and ended awkwardly. The story is interesting, and hooks you from the beginning. If I didn't have the next book in my library, I would have gone bonkers. I decided to give the next book in the series a chance to see if it moves the story along better, and ends on a better note. That will decide the series for me. I don't know that I will recommend this book - just be aware that if you decide to read this book, you will definitely not be satisfied with the ending unless you have the next book handy - reader beware!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you? I'm not really sure what it was about this book - it's been recommended to me by several people, but after reading through about half of it, it just dragged on and on without anything of substance ever happening that warranted enough interest for me to keep reading.
