    A tale of the distant future by the author of The Shape-Changer's Wife brings listeners to a world in which the fate of all life rests on the voice of an angel.

    Overall

    I am another huge fan of Sharon Shinn???s books. I was thrilled to see that the Archangel books had come out on Audible! Unfortunately, the narrator leaves much to be desired; but the story is so enjoyable that I forget that I don???t like the way she reads until someone ???speaks??? with a twang. Oh well, I will overlook it and get all of the books as they are some of my all-time favorites. Now, how about ???Summers at Castle Auburn??? [read well]?

    Uncertain of the past, Aerin-sol, daughter of King Arlbeth, decides to forge her own future by challenging the lashing tongues of the dragon’s fire. Aerin’s proficiency as "the Dragon-slayer" sets her on a quest for the stolen Crown of Damar, believed to be in the hands of rebellious northerners who threaten to destroy the Damarian people and their home forever.

    The prequel to Blue Sword, it matters not which book you read first. The story is fabulous, and the readers of both books do a wonderful job. I had been requesting these books from Audible for years as they were only available from the publisher at about $80 or so. I finally broke down and purchased Blue Sword a couple of years ago, and was about to buy this book too when Audible released it! Thanks a million! These two books can be listened to again and again.

    When the reigning Archangel is grounded with a broken wing, Jovah chooses Alleluia as her successor. But now the fate of the planet rests with the reluctant Archangel Alleluia, whose own fate depends on a mortal man who believes only in science and himself.

    Overall

    Another fabulous Sharon Shinn book, and the narrator really didn't bother me as much as with Book 1. One of the oracles sounds like he is gargling rocks, but aside from that voice, the rest was okay. Getting ready to start Book 3, so obviously I would still recommend these fabulous books!

    The Rider Justin is sent to the small town of Neft, so he can spy on the nearby Lumanen Convent where the Daughters of the Pale Mother reside. He quickly learns that Coralinda Gisseltess, the leader of the Daughters, is indeed persecuting mystics and the people who shelter them. Even more quickly, he falls in love with Ellynor, one of the convent novices. But the courtship is perilous in the extreme.

    "Wonderful Book; Not So Great Narrator"
    Overall

    If you love the voice of the Geico gecko, you should not be disappointed with this reading. Every time Cammon has a line you think of the sweet little green guy. However, I don't find any redeeming value in the female voices. The book is my second favorite of the series, but this narrator just does not do it justice. Expect more of the same in Reader and Raelynx, but I bought it too just because I love all of Sharon Shinn's books.
