    In the remote village of Mandryn, Tessia serves as assistant to her father, the village Healer - much to the frustration of her mother, who would rather she found a husband. Despite knowing that women aren't readily accepted by the Guild of Healers, Tessia is determined to follow in her father’s footsteps. But her life is about to take a very unexpected turn. When treating a patient at the residence of the local magician, Lord Dakon, Tessia is forced to fight off the advances of a visiting Sachakan mage - and instinctively uses magic.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different narrator, the narrator made it sound like everyone was whining.

    NO


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I think there are good bones to the story

    What disappointed you about Stone of Tears?

    The narration was BAD!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love the writing


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator vacillated between sounding like a robot and making it sound like everyone was whining.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love this book, I hate the narration.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good example of a narrator killing a story.
