I don't think I would listen to the story again, but I did enjoy listening the first time. Good characters, interesting plot and this final book ties it up very nicely.
I enjoyed all the characters because they grew throughout the story.
For at least the first 4 chapters or so, you are doing nothing but living inside Wren's thoughts and all she does is speculate and ask annoying questions over and over and over and over. Then, once the book does get going, it is still pretty boring and oftentimes predictable or silly. I just thought the whole thing to be rather blah. Book one was pretty good, the second was decent and the third fell flat.
Home is where my books are.
What a wonderful ending to the trilogy! I was blown away and cannot wait to start the whole thing over again in a year or two. Wow!
I could try to describe the story, but it's futile. The books are so much deeper than anything I could say. In fact, it's amazing to me how the descriptions of all three books simply do not do them justice, even though they are factually correct.
Nicola Barber is brilliant as the reader. Her characterizations are spot on and swept me away into the story.
If you love fantasy, you have to read these books. If you have kids over the age of 14, they must read this story. Books like these are why I'm a reader and if I'd read this in school, I would probably have become a writer. The prose is so beautiful, the relationships so real, the problems faced by the characters so compelling that I was captivated from the first book to the last. I'm sad it's over, but excited to see what Kassy Tayler writes next. She has a lifelong fan, and a vocal cheerleader in me.
Do not miss this beautiful adventure, no matter how old you are!
