The audiobook version adds that extra emotional juice to the story. Even more, Neil Gaimen is one of the only authors who also narrates his own audiobooks, but does so with some serious panache and succeeds here. Gaimen knows his characters best and brings his story and characters to life in the most accurate way possible. Its rare to have the author double as the voice actor -- and actually do a good job of it -- but in the case of The Graveyard Book, Gaiman gives a master performance to a a masterful story.

This is one of those books that you will entrance both children and adults at the same time. It's perfect to listen to by yourself or with your kids before bed. The Shadow Campaigns. The audiobook version of the story is narrated by Richard Poe who does a crackling job of telling the story.
Top 25 Best Fantasy Audiobooks
Poe has almost a Shakespearean quality to his voice while reading which adds presence and charisma to the key characters. Many of the top fantasy narrators have a strong British accent, but Poe's powerful yet almost poetic American accent works wonderfully for this story. Poe, along with Michael Krammer, has one of the best American accent male voices. You really feel like you are marching the trenches with the characters, you feel earth shake as the magical battles erupt, and you are pulled along the highs and lows as the characters struggle to survive a world struggling amidst the chaos of magic and war.
Poe really gets the military voice beat down perfectly. You feel as though you are part of the military, you can feel the wind whip by as swords sweep down and feel the tremble as cannons boom. So for a top notch military fantasy tale that gets better and better with each book, give The Shadow Campaigns a listen. Book one starts with The Thousand Names and will rock your world. It's a poignant character- driven story that wrings your emotions dry then wrings them some more.
It's the simple tale of a young unwanted 'half goblin prince' who's last in the line of succession with his Elvish side who through a misfortune of fate, becomes the emperor of an Eleven empire. Woefully unprepared and completely untrained to be empire, and facing a royal court -- and people -- who utterly detest him, the young goblin finds that' he's remarkably good at being emperor and must navigate the tricky waters of a royal court that wants to see him ousted, or worse The audiobook version of The Goblin Emperor absolutely awesome, due in part to the heart-wrenching narrative performance of Kyle McCarley.
A dark world needs a certain, dry narration combined with a narration that emphasizes how horrible the world really is. This is delivered on point with Pete Bradburys perfect narration of this outstanding book. While the first book in the series was mostly great read, the three sequel books completely dropped the ball and in my opinion, bringing what might have been a great series down to a mediocre one , this does not take away from the majesty of the first book There is a lot of power in the first book and the narration brings this captivating, chilling story to life.
If you are looking for an epic fantasy with a dark twist to it, with powerful heroes and an unique magical system, and a story that won't let you go from start to finish, The Warded Man is the book you are looking for. The sequels are pretty meh, but the first book is still absolutely worth the read.
This indie-fantasy hit all the right notes to become a worldwide best seller, launching Ryan into the stratosphere of the fantasy elite -- at least for a time. The following two sequels proved to be serious disappointments for most readers, and Ryan became a sort of one-hit-wonder, never regaining the voice he found with his remarkable debut fantasy book The Blood Song. Still, the narrative power and martial thrill of the first in the series, Blood Song, stands out as one of the better fantasy books released the past decade and gets my recommendation due to the strong emotional performance of Steven Brand and the compelling source material.
While the audiobook may not be as good a performance as some of the other books on this list, the quality of the first book make it a book you should absolutely read, or better yet, listen to. The audiobook edition solidifies this book as a great fantasy tale that must be experienced. And there is no better way to experience The Blood Song than the audiobook.
