I enjoy listening to this every night before bed (or reading).

Johan DelMar ,

Read along! 📚

I’m so happy I found this podcast. I’ve been dying to reread the series but also wanted something like this podcast to get a more in-depth look at the source material. I haven’t read the earlier books in over 20 years so the refresher is really needed 🥰
