First of all let me say that I am a fan of Tamora Pierce and own the audio versions of 9 of her books. I am also a big fan of Full Cast Audio and have purchased many of their books by other authors as well. That said, I have never bothered to listen to this one a second time.
Although Full Cast Audio did a wonderful job, the story just didn't grab me. I found many of the elements to be less interesting versions of things she had already done in other books. I also didn't find Evvy to be a very enjoyable protagonist.
But I know that everyone's tastes are different. If you are a big fan of Tamora Pierce, I'd recommend reading the print version first, to see if this is something you like, before spending your credit.
All in all, I'd much rather listen to any of the original Circle of Magic books or to Street Magic (the first story of Rosethorn, Briar, and Evvy and a great book) instead.
