    High Magic has been lost to Valdemar centuries ago when the last Herald-Mage gave his life to save the kingdom from destruction by dark sorceries. Yet now the realm is at risk again. And Elspeth, Herald and heir to the throne, must take up the challenge, abandoning her home to find a mentor who can awaken her untrained mage abilities. But others, too, are being caught up in a war against sorcerous evil.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator's pronunciations were atrocious. It would help if she had listened to any of the previous recordings. Character voices were inconsistent and, at times, sounded forced and stilted.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Griffins, because I like Griffins.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Karen White’s performances?

    No. I will go back to the printed volumes for the remaining 2 books.


    Did Winds of Fate inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrators and "director/producers" need to consult with the author, and listen to any previously recorded works, so that consistency between productions are maintained.
