    In a province where magic is forbidden and its possessors are murdered by the magickless, young Ilan has only one hope for survival. Concealment. In the shadow of Dimmingwood, she finds temporary protection among a band of forest brigands led by the infamous outlaw Rideon the Red Hand. Will lan's magic and the power of her enchanted bow be enough to save her?

    Story

    It's hard to tell if it is the story or the narration, but I do not get any feelings or emotions when listening to this story. The cover makes the story look cool, but the narration is kind of flat and it made it hard to stay interested. It was hard to tell which sentences had exclamations, which sentences were meant to convey sadness, thrill or anything. It felt like listening to a monotone lecture. I was very disappointed in both the story, which seems to progress slowly and the narration. I am still not sure where the story is leading the reader to. I think I will try to pick up this up again in a month or two and read it on my Kindle rather than listen to it and see if makes a difference. If I wasn't so hard-nosed about finishing books, this would have probably ended up on my DNF list, if I had a DNF list.

    In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world.

    Story

    There was a lot of movement in the story, finally! To me, it seemed that there was a lot happening but in a short period of time. But this one helps to give you a sense of how much time has progressed and you see the characters, especially Matt and Rand grow.Great installment to this series. It resolved some conflicts and situations while leaving you wondering about some new events and the future of the characters and their world. It is truly an epic saga and I am looking forward reading the sixth book in the series next! The narration in this series is top-notch too. Kudos to Michael Kramer and Kate Reading!
