Overall, Conspiracy is a great epic fantasy with a lot of political intrigue. It is a fast paced with some heart pounding action, including dragon knights and gun toting soldiers. I never thought guns and dragons could mix, but this is done in an excellent manner. The story is really brought to life in the audio format by the talented Mr. Travis Baldree. This provides a lot of personality to many of these fascinating characters. Mr. Cobble has provided a solid start to what will be a very interesting series that I look forward to continuing.
