We love audio books in our home and have listened to hundreds over the years. We have had past experiences with Heirloom Audio as well, and I have to say, these are amazingly produced and interesting stories. They all keep you on the edge of your seats and you can actually see the story as it's played out in your mind.
I have been highly impressed with Heirloom Audio Productions and the combination of audio theater, stories of faith, and awesome production value that they bring. The Dragon and the Raven was no different.
What we received:
We received the physical two disc CD set of the production of The Dragon and the Raven. We also received the download bonuses which includes:
- a full study guide on the production
- a printable copy of the verse for the story
- the soundtrack MP3
- and many other surprises!
The story is of the amazing King Alfred, Alfred the Great, and his journey to being King. It tells of the struggles and strife that went throughout as the Vikings tried to take over. Lives were lost, battles were waged and the rise to the king was not an easy one.
You'll hear the story of how Edmund and Alfred work together with their faith in God to save England. Go with Edmund as he watches his father from the trees in battle and as he stands shoulder to shoulder in the shield wall to save their beloved home. The Vikings were ruthless and took over every area around Edmund's home.
You'll see how turning back to God and returning to their faith helped them to win the battle. Through many ups, downs, trials and losses, these two brave warriors faced some dark times. They knew that with their faith in God, they could win this battle where all seemed lost.
What we thought:
This was another homerun in our book! We love audio books and drama anyway, but this one was one of my favorites. It's very engaging and exciting and draws you in as you listen. We have listened to it several times and worked with some of the guide book activities. The guide book really helps to concrete the information you heard in the drama.
I highly recommend this book and the others we've listened to from Heirloom Audio if you're wanting action packed, faith filled audio drama's to enjoy. These Christian audio dramas take the amazing voice talents by your favorite actors and put them in a rousing story that will have you going through a range of emotions. From the moment the first disc hits the CD player till you hear, the end, it's an adventure! Get ready for an exciting time with the Vikings, Norsemen, and King Alfred himself.
