    "What a bummer."

    I loved . . . well, strongly enjoyed, the first two books in this series. The narrators were decidedly rough, and the editing between scenes was abominable, but their voices were warm and sweet and did the story justice. And each of them improved over time. So I bought the 3rd and 4th books without checking the narrator. What a mistake.

    Emily Durante really ruins this book for me. Her baby voice lisp, and sing-songy cadence just sound weird. It made me feel like a four year old being read a bed-time story -- a very violent bed time story. Her character voices aren't bad, exactly, but the fey male characters in particular sound like children instead of the thousand year old hardened warriors they are supposed to be. They are fey, not fairies -- but you can't tell from Ms. Durante's interpretation. Using her to record these books is criminal.

    I hope someday the powers that be will re-record this series with someone worthy of it. Until then, I'll give it a skip.

    Was this a good book? I have no idea. I was so distracted by the reader that I couldn't focus on the story. I tried not listening for a week (thereby not to compare her with previous readers) but it didn't help. It's hard to listen to the Tairen Soul when he sounds like a teenager.

    Any additional comments?

    I have totally fallen head over heals in love with the Tairen Soul series. What an amazing story full of love and magic. A fantasy like no other that shows the absolute beauty of the Fae and the terrible evil of the mages. What a crazy and thrilling ride these books have taken me on. My heart is going to break when the series ends..........

    "disapointment"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    maybe. If it improve or the 5th one gets better


    If you’ve listened to books by C. L. Wilson before, how does this one compare?

    1 -3 and I love them.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Durante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just this series


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes. frustration


    Any additional comments?

    Books 1 -3 I was addicted too. I am struggling to get through this one. The women have become whinny and annoying when they are suppose to be queens. It feels forced and drawn out. I am hoping once I am through it the 5 th book picks up, but at the moment I feel the story should have been condensed into a trilogy.

    "Still excellent, but a needed more action."

    This installment introduced the listener to the elves in a much deeper way, and explores their history and mythology in more detail. I felt somewhat impatient with this book at times, as it was obviously setting up the final climax to the series in book 5, and was slower in pace than the previous books. Still very enjoyable, and contains crucial information for the continuing storyline. Durante is ok, but not great.
