    When Daine comes down from the mountains, she carries with her two things: a dark secret about her own past, and a strangely powerful magic that even she doesn't understand.

    Cathy says: "The Immortals series: One of my favorite"
    "Doesn't do the book justice."
    Overall

    I was a bit disappointed in the audio version of this wonderful book. I will forever worship Tamora Pierce for her writing skills. In fact this book, when it came out, was one of the first fantasy novels that I read as a pre-teen. To this day, as an adult, I still buy every book she publishes, and read them all at least once a year. This audio version, however, fails to do justice to her novel. The narration was extremely stilted and over-enunciated to the point of sounding like a machine. It lacked any sort of inflection, especially when heard up against the exuberance of the character actors. An audio book read by an ensemble cast can be great if done well, but this one had the feel of an acting troupe that hadn?t run their lines enough. The pacing was off, and it lacked cohesion as a whole. The overall effect was very distracting. I?m not disappointed that I bought this audio book because I just love the story that much, but I do hope that the next one is better.
