    The quest for the long-lost Elfstones has drawn the leader of the Druid order and her followers into the hellish dimension known as the Forbidding, where the most dangerous creatures banished from the Four Lands are imprisoned. Now the hunt for the powerful talismans that can save their world has become a series of great challenges: a desperate search for kidnapped comrades, a relentless battle against unspeakable predators, and a grim race to escape the Forbidding alive. But though freedom is closer than they know, it may come at a terrifying price.

    What did you love best about Bloodfire Quest?

    Story captivated and holds you from the get go. Ends in perfect suspense. Waiting not so patiently for release of 3rd book in series.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    Rosalyn Landor's narration is amazing - perfect. She captures the characters, the story and the suspense exactly the way I hear the story in my mind. Outstanding! I will look for narration on other audios.

    Story

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."
    "Catches you and doesn't let you go."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story will hook you and the narration is so perfectly suited it captures the reader completely. Very quickly into the reading, you will question what Faction YOU belong to.


    What other book might you compare Divergent to and why?

    Comparable to Hunger Games. Teenage girl against a corrupt government.


    Any additional comments?

    Emma Galvin is the perfect narrator for this book. Her voice is young, exactly what you expect for the heroine. Her emotions perfect - vulnerable, determined, brave, courageous, scared.

    For centuries the Four Lands enjoyed freedom from its demon-haunted past, protected by magic-enhanced borders from the dark dimension known as the Forbidding and the profound evil imprisoned there. But now the unthinkable is happening: The ancient wards securing the barrier between order and mayhem have begun to erode - and generations of bloodthirsty, monstrous creatures, fueled by a rage thousands of years in the making, are poised to spill forth, seeking revenge for what was done to them.

    William says: "Great closing to a great series."
    "Another Brooks favorite."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Witch Wraith to be better than the print version?

    Very much enjoyed Landors narration.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Aphen. True to the Druid hardships, life, gifts and spirit.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    The ease in which she became each character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I played it every moment I could! Beginning to end.


    Any additional comments?

    Very much a Terry Brooks fan and now a Rosalyn Landor fan.
