Alissa is the only student living in the Hold, learning a millennium’s worth of magic from the last surviving Master. Even shape-shifting to her dragon-like raku form is becoming second nature. But when a spell goes awry, Alissa is transported back four centuries to an era when the Hold and its city thrive with magic students and their tutors.
Separated from the man she loves by 400 years, Alissa’s distress and confusion are causing her to lose control of her shape-shifting. If she can’t return to her own time, Alissa will be permanently transformed into her bestial form with no memory of her human life—or her love.
This is the third book in the Truth Series by Dawn Cook, who also writes under the pen name Kim Harrison.

“Cook’s solid third novel about Alissa stands very well alone, showing as it does how many characters who exist in both times have grown and changed—or haven't.” (Booklist)
I am sorry that I have not found this series before it is a great listen. I find myself not being able to stop listening. It is a great premise for a series! Wish there were more!
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
The previous Truth books we discovered Alissa was a very special girl with powers. She found the Hold, the first truth, and she even discovered she was a Raku, a huge bird she turns into. In this audio Alissa shifts but ends up shifting to the past. In the past the Hold is thriving full of people, students, and master Rakus. Alissa is mesmerized by the difference the Hold is centuries ago before it had fallen. The longer she's there the more she realizes she may never find.her way back home, to the future,and all she had ever known. She feared she would be stuck there forever and lose the memory of everything shed ever known or loved.I loved the Truth series. They were wbeautifully written and with a magnificent imagination.Marguerite Gavin's performance is remarkable. As you listen to her she completely draws you in. I recommend the Truth series.and anything written by Kim Harrison. You wont regret getting these books. You will be swept away by Marguerites voice. You will love how she changes her voice with every character. I promise you will be blown away.
