Medalon has surrendered to foreign invaders, Tarja is once more an outcast, the Defenders have scattered…and their only hope is Damin Wolfblade. But Damin has his own problems - the High Prince is dead, so Damin must lift the siege on the Hythrun capital and defeat a usurper before he can come to Medalon's aid.
For R'shiel, time is running out. She must find a way to bring peace to the divided southern nations, to free Medalon from Karien occupation, and to find the strength to put an end to Loclon. And she has finally accepted her destiny as the Demon Child, which means she must be the one to defeat Xaphista - soon, before the Harshini are destroyed. But how can she kill a god?

"As in Medalon (2004) and Treason Keep (2004), the capricious gods are part of the mix, and now intrigue and counterintrigue become even more complicated. The battles are fierce, the losses heartrending in Fallon's beautifully created world, whose disparate inhabitants are once again completely convincing, making Harshini a chilling, thrilling conclusion to the trilogy." (Booklist)
I really liked this series all in all. I'm a Jennifer Fallon fan now. Book 1 and 3 are the best. At times I thought it reminded me of several high fantasy books (insert best sellers here), almost to the point of plagerism, but it did have some definitely original ideas and a well thought out magic system. Sometimes the heroine is just a little too stupid and you want to tell her not to do something, but she does; however it didn't keep me from listening. The narration was excellent. I hope to run across the narrator again.
"A Masterful Performance :-))"
Super. Wonderful. Brilliant.
That would take too long to say.
Imogen Church infused this whole series with a wonderful sense of drama, humor and character. My only regret is that Ms Church hasn't narrated any other books that I would want to listen to.
Yes. Unfortunately pesky things like sleeping, eating and generally living intrude on pleasures like these :-))
I have truly enjoyed this performance of a series I read many years ago. I was, as always when starting an audio book, nervous about the narrator spoiling a well loved tale. In this case I had no need to worry. Imogen Church rendered a truly masterful performance of this series. Thank you Ms Church. I wish she had also narrated the Wolfblade series too.
