loved the book from start to finish. Fully vested in the characters and rallying for Lady Amelia and Mondina...
Best fantasy series I read in a long time! The humor and adventure make this head and shoulders above other series. I will be listening to all the prequel books too. Royce and Hadrian forever!!
Sullivan is my new favorite author. He very carefully develops the characters, subtly drawing the reader deeply into the story. He keeps the characters "in character" and the narrator does a great job maintaining the unique vocalizations of each character. I loved the plot twists and turns ... they were well balanced and unbelievably believable. This author very obviously has an intimate relationship with each character, understanding it's life and history so much that even the most outrageous scenes become believable for that character. Loved the first volume in the series, loved this volume and am looking forward to the next! The narrator "owned" this story and really brought it to life! Thank you!
Just like the first book this one has a fast pace with breathtaking twists and while it seems to be simple at the surface it's not. Great characters and an excellent narrator makes it an epic tale
Teacher & musician.
The plots and twists are masterfully executed leaving even the veteran reader in dark as to how they will play out. This one is better than the first in the series, and I can't wait to continue the journey!
I perfered running the audiobook at 1.25%-1.5% speed, as the normal reading speed was a bit slow for my taste. Other than that, the narrator managed to bring the characters to life with believable voices, and he gave the story a captivating mood through both pitch, intonation and intensity.
