From Carol Berg, acclaimed author of the Rai-kirah saga, comes the epic story of Aidan MacAllister. Beloved by the gods, he could transform the souls of men with his voice and harp...
At 13, the sound of dragons flying overhead gave him songs beyond human understanding.
At 14, Aidan was considered the finest musician of his generation, primed to become a legend.
At 21, his cousin the king imprisoned him for treason and sentenced him to silence.
At 38, Aidan is suddenly released, a scarred, voiceless wreck of the man he once was, with but one desire – to discover what he had done to warrant such a punishment...

Song of the Beast is a stand-alone fantasy book and it's not connected to Carol Berg's other fantasy books. In my opinion Song of the Beast is a pretty good book, but it's not as good as The Books of the Rai-Kirah or The Bridge of D'Arnath. If you enjoy reading good fantasy stories, you should read this book.
