    Zoe Ardelay receives astonishing and unwelcome news: she has been chosen to become the king's fifth wife. Forced to go to the royal city, she manages to slip away and hide on the shores of the mighty river. It's there that Zoe realizes she is a coru prime, ruled by the elemental sign of water. She must return to the palace, not as an unwilling bride for the king, but a woman with power in her own right.

    Story
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Troubled Waters?

    I personally love when an author creates a new social structure within the story. In this case, the world the characters reside in is dictated by random fortunes that are drawn when a child is first born. These fortunes don't necessarily reveal themselves in obvious ways, but definitely play a part in creating the personality of their recipients.


    Any additional comments?

    One thing I don't particularly like about this story is how obnoxious the main character starts to sound. I think she stops being all sensible and strong, and instead starts to sound downright bossy.

    Story
    (2539)

    On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    Ron says: "Spectacular fantasy series"

    Story
    Would you listen to Heir of Novron again? Why?

    I have listened to it again! The characters are so likable and the story is exciting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heir of Novron?

    The part when the characters go into the lost city of Percepliquis (no clue how to spell that...).


    What about Tim Gerard Reynolds’s performance did you like?

    What I like about TGR is his consistency in the characters' voices. From Theft of Swords to Heir of Novron, he kept the same voice for each of the characters. It makes it easier to follow the story if you don't have to keep reminding yourself who is talking!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Who says there's no honor among thieves?
