    It is a world where magic is forbidden – yet practiced in secret every day. But each small act of magic exacts a dreadful price – for it brings the bramble, which chokes farmland, destroys villages, and kills with its deadly thorns. In this world an alchemist believes he’s found a solution to the curse. But will the cure be worse than the disease? And a woman is forced to take up the mantle of her father, the Executioner. But it will not be the only death that she faces.

    "Beautiful lyrical tale"
    Overall

    This was a most enjoyable audiobook. I really liked the concept of strong female characters. It is about the consequences individuals and societies must deal with as a result of their actions. A cautionary fable set in a fantasy/medieval setting. Since I mostly enjoy fantasy and historical fiction this was just the right type of story for me. The narrators where a delight to my ears. Perhaps the authors will continue with episodic chapters in this story, building on the stories of other characters, since the story does seem to be not quite finished.

    Story

    I listened to the first 2 books by checking them out through my local library. Wanted to see if this book would "pull" the story together. Couldn't finish it though. Seems like much of this book is simple repetition of what has been written in the previous 2 novels. Irritating. And so disappointing since in the past I have enjoyed this author's writing. Since then I have listened to 2 other fantasy novels which leaves this series in the dust. First, The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss and second, Chronicles of Siala by Alexey Pehov. I feel both are well constructed fantasy and better stories then this series. The narrator was OK; not much he could do to improve this novel. FYI: I am a female lover of fantasy fiction

    Daisy Flattery is a free spirit with a soft spot for strays and a weakness for a good story. Why else would she agree to the outrageous charade offered by her buttoned-down workaholic neighbor, Linc Blaise? The history professor needs to have a fiancée in order to capture his dream job, and Daisy is game to play the role. But something funny happens on their way to the altar that changes everything.

    Laura says: "The Listener"
    "Sketchy, poorly defined story and characters"
    Overall

    This story had promise but it is written as if the author had other things on her mind and just had to "throw something together". It needed to be at least twice as long to do the story and characters justice. Not worth the money at any price.
