The wild magic is taking its toll on the land, and even Vanyel, the most powerful Herald-Mage to ever walk the world, is almost at the end of his strength. But when his Companion, Yfandes, receives a call for help from neighboring Lineas, both Herald-Mage and Companion are drawn into a holocaust of dark magic that could be the end of them both.

I liked that the characters had more depth in Book Two when compared to Book One.
I least liked all of the "ly" words. They greatly distracted me and took away from the story. You will see this same statement in the reviews for the other two books.
Better than Magic's Pawn
It has one.
Again, the homosexuality seems to be placed as an afterthought. It is never fully developed. It seemed the author was trying for an epic romance and it just sort of fell short.
I haven't heard him before but now I'll look for his other audiobooks for sure!
I couldn't stop listening!
Bad performance of a great book.
The story was absorbing and fast-paced. Characters were multi-faceted and engaging.
The narrator paused when he shouldn't have and didn't pause when he should have. This could have been editing. Sometimes there was a pause when there should not have been: "he climbed down the back........ stairs" (listener starts to question how anyone can climb down a back and finally the sentence is completed. Oh, okay. He climbed down the stairs!!!).
There were not pauses between separate segments when there definitely should have been. Whenever there was a scene change, the lack of separation created confusion in the mind of the listener.
This broke the flow of the story and made it difficult to fully enjoy.
I would have - if the rendition had been better.
Narrator had a nice voice but the inappropriate pauses throughout all three books made the stories difficult to follow.
it is a captivating book and the story keeps me wanting moor.
van, he is a vary deep person and he touches you with his story.
Avid reader, cook, dog trainer, and papercrafter Audible has made all of these better by reading my favorite books to me!
I adore this story and this series. Gregory St John does a beautiful job. My only issue is with the lack of pausing between segments of the story. When you are cruising along, listening to one set of characters interact and there is no pause at the scene change, it strains understanding. Other than that, this is an excellent rendition of this book!!
Love. Magic. Pain.
The companion bond. Wept and wept. You want to comfort poor Vanyel
Same as above
Love this book. I cry during many parts but it is a good cry
