The Demon Wars Saga consists of two trilogies and this book, Mortalis, which bridges the two trilogies.  The first trilogy tells of Elbryan the Ranger, Pony the warrior, Bradwarden the Centaur, Avelyn the monk, and Juraviel the elf as they battle the demon dactyl, Bestesbulzibar and protect the land of Corona from his evils. Mortalis covers mainly the life of Pony after the war, and develops some new characters.

Once again, GraphicAudio continues to produce this saga in audiobook form with their “Movie in your Mind” concept.  R.A. Salvatore provided the great story, but GraphicAudio brings it to life with outstanding acting, super sound effects and subtle, yet effective incidental music.

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 its abbeys to be shut and the monks to stay within the walls, so no monk will catch the plague.  This is ordered despite the suffering of the common folk outside the walls of the abbeys.  King Ursul has ordered the same for all baroneys.  The common folk soon lose faith in the church and in their King.

Brother De’Unnero after being turned down once again to be a father abbot, turns against the church and creates a cult following of Brothers Repentant.  This following is going throughout the land preaching that the plague is brought on as the wrath of God because the church has lost it’s way and the people are sinful.  He begins killing those that do not denounce their faith for his religion.

In the meantime Jilseponie (formerly, Poney) is trying to find a cure for the plague, using all her magicks.  During a spirit-walk Lady Dasselrond of the Touel’Alfar gives her an ancient scroll where a relief, not a cure, is written to help ease the suffering.  Then a vision from the martyred Brother Avelyn may give her the cure, but is it too late?

This exciting conclusion takes the listener back to Mount Aida, to where the demon dactyl, Bestus Bulzibar was destroyed and throughout all the baroneys of the land.  Once again the adventure is only made better by the outstanding production from GraphicAudio.
