Pronunciation Guide

You know what’s irritating about fantasy novels? All those names and terms. Just how the heck do you say “Gra’knagr’aknag’arth*”? Well, I’m here for you.

To celebrate our website relaunch — ooh, pretty colors! — we’re also launching an Audio Guide. Go to THIS page, click on any term, and hear multi-Audie Award winner Simon Vance pronounce each of the names and terms in The Lightbringer Series. Simon is also the narrator for The Blinding Knife and The Broken Eye (available in Audio HERE).

Note that each list has one term at the top in big font, i.e. the A-B Glossary has “ABAYA” at the top. You don’t have to listen to every term from “Abaya” to “Burnous” in order to hear the pronunciation of “Burnous”. Just click directly on “Burnous”. This is a limitation of Soundcloud.

The eagle-eyed among you might notice we have some other things in store for the future. We’ll announce those as soon as we can!

(Also, new poll!)
