Dying of the Light

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: George R. R. Martin

Narrated By: Iain Glen

Date: October 2012

Duration: 11 hours 40 minutes


In this unforgettable space opera, #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin presents a chilling vision of eternal night—a volatile world where cultures clash, codes of honor do not exist, and the hunter and the hunted are often interchangeable.
A whisperjewel has summoned Dirk t’Larien to Worlorn, and a love he thinks he lost. But Worlorn isn’t the world Dirk imagined, and Gwen Delvano is no longer the woman he once knew. She is bound to another man, and to a dying planet that is trapped in twilight. Gwen needs Dirk’s protection, and he will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means challenging the barbaric man who has claimed her. But an impenetrable veil of secrecy surrounds them all, and it’s becoming impossible for Dirk to distinguish between his allies and his enemies. In this dangerous triangle, one is hurtling toward escape, another toward revenge, and the last toward a brutal, untimely demise.

    This was my first experience with SCiFi and I wasn't sure going into it. I had read all of Martin's A Song Of Ice & Fire series multiple times and had decided to branch out farther into Martin's other works. He didn't disappoint, I fell in love wit the book, with the complex universe of 1000 worlds that he created, the depth of human feeling and unusual cultures and relationships that he depicted. I have listened to a lot of audio books as well and have found that regardless how good a story is, the narrator can make or break the experience. Iain Glen did a hell of a job on this one, really projected the emotions Martin was trying to convey.
