The bards of Waterdeep remember the past. Or do they? Even as they sing their ballads, a mysterious spell is changing their memories. Danilo Thann, Harper and would-be bard, sets out to uncover the mystery. In this quest, his closest companion is his deadliest enemy, the rogue elf Elaith Craulnober.
At stake is not merely the future of Faern but also its past.

I did not read the print version but Eric Michael Summerer does a very nice job. Especially, when it comes to voices the different characters.
Just like the first book in the series (Elfshadow), the story is really tight and easy to follow. Characters are fun and kept it going.
He does a wonderful job narrating the different characters. One of the best at changing characters that I have heard on Audible. I will purposefully look for FR books narrated by him in the future.
Towards the end as the story starts to finish up. There are a few scenes that tie things together nicely.
Even without Arilyn in this book (she is off on another Harper quest) I think I liked it better than the Elfshadow. Dannilo is great as always (without him constantly trying with Arilyn) along with a few other elf companions.
Elaine has done a very nice job keep these stories tight and easy to follow. It goes a long way.
