This is the fourth book in the League novels that I've listened to. I started with the first, Born of Night and I thought it was a really good book so I started listening to the others. I've come to the conclusion that by this point Ms. Kenyon is writing by formula. Take the same basic scenarios, change settings and names (most of the time), and repeat. Considering how much I liked the first book of the series, I really had higher hopes for this book. Considering that this book is supposed to be the second generation from Born of Fire, the stories start out nearly identical, making it very hard to keep listening to. While I love a good romance, I also expect innovation in the action parts of the story. Here's hoping further books get better.
Us Wheel of Time fans sorely miss Robert Jordan, and while Brandon Sanderson has admited that he'll never write like Jordan, he managed to still immerse the readers back into the lands we've all come to love. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have once again brought the words of Rand's tale to life, I can't even begin to imagine a WoT book not read by them any more.
