    The unthinkable has occurred in the kingdom of Lyonya. The queen of the Elves - known as the Lady - is dead, murdered by former elves twisted by dark powers. Now the Lady’s half-elven grandson must heal the mistrust between elf and human before their enemies strike again. Yet as he struggles to make ready for an attack, an even greater threat looms across the Eight Kingdoms.Throughout the north, magic is reappearing after centuries of absence, emerging without warning in family after family - rich and poor alike.

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The story is excellent but the narration is uneven. Some of the variations in voice sound forced and strained. This distracts from the story and lessens the impact. This is the only time I have been disappointed in an Audible book.

    One of the best stories in urban fantasy today.

    Zackman's reading brings out nuances that might be easily missed otherwise


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A heroine with a sense of humor and capable of examining her motives, quite unusual.
