Immortalis, Part 3: The Demon Wars Immortalis, Part 3: The Demon Wars by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
It is a bittersweet thing to come to an end of any good saga, and this is especially true for The Demon Wars Saga. It's the story of the land of Corona, where the Demon Dactyl, Bestesbulzibar, awakes -- wrecking havoc in the land. It took seven books to get through this adventure, but was it ever worth it!

Immortalis, Part 2: The Demon Wars Immortalis, Part 2: The Demon Wars by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
The schemes of Adryan, son of Elbryan and Jilseponie, are revealed in this installment of the series. Before his birth, Adryan was taken from Jilseponie's womb by Lady Dasselrond, a leader of the Tu'elafar elves, and raised as a ranger in hopes that he would save their land. It turns out that not letting the child or the mother know of each other's existence has stained Adryan's view on life. Leaving the elves, Adryan comes under the tutelage of the renegade monk De'Unnero, and plots to take the throne and conquer the world. Those that don't bow to him will be destroyed.

Immortalis, Part 1: The Demon Wars Immortalis, Part 1: The Demon Wars by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
This is the first of three parts of the final book in The Demon Wars Saga. This tale has been a great adventure in fantasy, with heroes which include wizards (of a sort), elves, dwarves, goblins, giants, a centaur that plays bagpipes, humans, and a dragon. The author includes everything one could ever want in a fantasy series and populates the Land of Corona with some great heroes and villains.

Transcendence, Part 3: The Demon Wars Transcendence, Part 3: The Demon Wars by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
Sad to say, but adventures in the Land of Corona are coming to a close. With the finishing of this final part of book 6, Gil realizes there's only one more book left and the story seems to be ready for a huge finale. The Transcendence trilogy focuses on the new leaders in the land of Behren and Honce-the-Bear. In particular, this book covers the land of Behren and how the Behrenese have conquered the To-Gai. But Ranger Brynn Dhariell has arrived on the scene to set the To-Gai people free.

This installment continues with the adventures of the Ranger, Brynn Dharielle. Brynn was trained by the elves to become a hero for her people, the To-Gai, who are being enslaved by the Behrenese. During the journey to her homeland, Brynn is separated from her two travelling companions when they come across the lair of a dragon. Brynn escapes and goes on to her country to find a small revolution already in progress.

an audiobbok review by Dale Darlage
Gary Leger has a boring life, a dead-end job, and not much of a future. But that's before he's kidnapped by a leprechaun name Mickey McMickey and expected to wear the armor and carry the broken spear of a long-dead king as he undertakes an epic quest through the land of Faerie.

an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
Marching forward to begin book six of this seven volume series, Transcendence tells the story of the second Ranger trained at the same time as Adryan Wyndon, who became king of Honce-the-Bear in the last book. Brynn Dharielle was rescued by elves after her parents were murdered by the Behrenese. The Behrenese have been enslaving Brynn's race and her purpose as a Ranger is to free her people and start a revolution.

As fate would have it, Aydrian crosses paths with Marcalo De'Unnero, the former Bishop of Palmaris, who has been possessed and is the man that murdered Aydrian's father. De'Unnero begins plotting against Jilseponie, who is now Queen of Honce-the-Bear, in the land of Corona.

an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
After losing her husband Elbryan (who was a ranger trained by the elves), Jilseponie settles into her role of Baroness of Palmaris, glad to be serving the people. Leaders of the Abellican Church realize that her talent of creating powerful magic with the holy gemstones could be put to better use for both the church and the people of Palmaris if she becomes a Bishop of Palmaris. The king of Honce-the-Bear has other plans -- he wants her to become his wife and queen.

Mortalis, Part 3: The Demon Wars Mortalis, Part 3: The Demon Wars by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
The Rosey Plague is wreaking havoc in the land of Corona, especially in the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear. The Abellican Church has ordered all of its abbeys to be shut and the monks to stay within the walls to prevent them from catching the plague. King Ursul has ordered the same for all baroneys, leaving the common people to fend for themselves.

Mortalis, Part 2: The Demon Wars Mortalis, Part 2: The Demon Wars by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
The Demon Wars Saga continues with Mortalis, the fourth book in the series, which bridges the two trilogies in the saga. In this edition of the series, Honce-the-bear, a country/state in the land of Corona, has just had their Abellican Church fall to the evil of the demon dactyl. The result is a ferocious war with giants, goblins and dwarves. During the reconstruction period the Church works to get their house back in order but the Rosy Plague has entered the land. This plague is untreatable, even by the magic gemstones of the church.

In part one of Mortalis we learn the Touel'alfar, the elves in the land of Corona, have taken the son of Elbryan and Pony and have begun his training as a ranger to replace Nightbird (Elbryan). The Touel'alfarar have also begun the training of another ranger, Brynn Dharielle, a To-Gai girl whose family was killed during the war.

The Demon Apostle, Part 3: The Demon Wars The Demon Apostle, Part 3: The Demon Wars by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
R.A. Salvatore creates a world of fantasy in which the magicks rest in gemstones and the elves train one ranger in each generation to protect the forests and people of the outlying areas of the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear, Conflict is sure to arise in a country where many mythical and magical creatures live including elves, centaurs, dwarves, giants, and goblins. But the enemy of man turns out to be none of these creatures. Instead, mans worst enemy is himself, manifesting itself in the form of religion and politics.

an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
GraphicAudio continues their "Movie in Your Mind" production of R.A. Salvatore's Demon Wars Saga with book three of the seven-book series. I haven't decided yet if I'm fond of the way the book is divided into three parts. On the one hand, this approach offers the book in smaller, digestible audiobook chunks. But on the other hand, the producer really knows where to divide the books to create massive cliffhangers between the sections, and this one ends with the listener craving to know what happens next.

Continuing on with R.A. Salvatore's Demon Wars saga, this installment begins book three of the seven book series. Once again, the magical production skills of GraphicAudio seamlessly transport you back into the world of Corona. Elbryan Wyndon, the Nightbird, travels north to take back the Timberlands with the help of Bradwarden the Centaur and Belli'mar Juraviel the elf, while Pony moves south to the city of Palmaris for reasons of her own.

The Demon Spirit, Part 3 The Demon Spirit, Part 3 by R.A. Salvatore
an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
The third part of GraphicAudio's adaptation of The Demon Spirit brings to a close the second book in R.A. Salvatore's series, The Demon Wars Saga. It's the second in a seven-book epic and this title ends with an extreme cliffhanger. Listening to these productions makes you feel as though you've been launched into the magical/mythical land of Corona and are sitting alongside the characters, watching the story unfold.

The Demon Spirit, Part 2 continues with Elbryan, Pony and Juraviel, the elf, trying their best to rid Corona of the remaining Fomorian Giants, Bloody-Cap powrie dwarves and goblins. This time, they run into the generals of the powries and giants and decide to destroy those higher ranking officials in hopes that, without their leaders, the powries and giants will leave the land and the goblins will soon follow suit. The battles ensue and when it looks like a major victory for the humans is eminent, an unforseen problem arises.

an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
After destroying the Demon Dactyl, there is hope that the end of the Dactyl means the end of evil in the land. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Instead, the armies of the Dactyl are now scattered throughout the land of Corona with no leader and are wreaking havoc on the countryside. Heroes from the earlier conflict meet Juraviel, the elf, who tells them how the Dactyl may have ruined the lands of the elves forever. Determined not to let the same fate befall humanity, the group decides they must now rid the land of the Demon Spirit that still inhabits Corona.

The beginning of a new era continues in part two of the high fantasy saga, The Demon Wars. The demon Dactyl has awakened and has put together an army to destroy the land of Corona. R.A. Salvatore has created a story that runs through seven books and is the basis of the role-playing game, Demon Wars. Now teamed up with Graphic Audio, these books come to life as an audio adaptation.

an audiobook review by Gil T. Wilson
The story begins as the demon Dactyl awakens after spending an eon encased in stone. The sound effects used to reflect his coming back to life are extremely well done and the audio engineers at GraphicAudio deserve lots of credit for creating an attention-grabbing opening scene.

The Lone Drow The Lone Drow by R.A. Salvatore
reviewed by Cindy Lynn Speer
As far as Drizzt knows, everyone he loves -- Catti-Brie, Wulfgar, Bruenor -- are dead. So he stays out in the wilds, attacking and harrying the orcs, who still have plans to lay siege on Mithral Hall, designs that now seem even more possible that their leader, Obould, has gained some sort of uncanny strength and insight thanks to a religious ceremony. Drizzt lets the Hunter take over, and he, friendless save for Guenhwyver, revels in taking out every orc he can.

He slowly understands that he is losing himself, that he is becoming the Hunter alone, and that all the ideas he held dear is being lost.

reviewed by Lisa DuMond
We return to the world of Corona in God's Year 54 where we meet Brother Bran Dynard, a devout follower of the Blessed Abelle and carrier of amazing discoveries and an incredible book to share with his beloved church. Earnest and naïve, Bran never thinks to take into account one of the dark truths of religion; those in power will do almost anything to prevent change. It's a miscalculation that will cost the brother and his beautiful and amazing new bride dearly.

Story grows out of character and the author's characters make this series rise above the plethora of similarly plotted fantasy trilogies. Salvatore has said he spent six months just building his world, getting to know his characters, and it shows.
