Much to the dismay of her advisors, Amalie begins to fall in love with the wholly unsuitable Cammon. Even worse, war comes to Gillengaria anyway, and Amalie can only be kept safe through the combined efforts of the Riders, the mystics - and the wild raelynx that has mystical powers of its own.

I loved this series so much I hated to see it end. It took sometime to get used to the new narrator, Joe Barrett -- and I have to admit, I never did warm to his interpretation of Kira, but I was able to over-look it. The story was so engaging and the battle at the end was great. I hope Sharon Shinn continues to write for the main characters, and that Audible gets more of her work soon. Highly recommended..
This is a delightful book. Exciting, imaginative, beautifully written, and wonderfully narrated. The worst part of this book was that it came to an end. I really will miss these characters. I enjoyed all the Mystic and Rider books, but this one was even more exceptional.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
This has been my favorite series i have listened to to date. I will be re-reading them all again i'm sure. I will miss the characters as i have become so attached to them all. Every book has had me captivated from beginning to end, just wish there were many more book to the series and it never end's lol. Just love it so much.
This book is a satisfying conclusion for the trilogy! It ties up loose ends I didn't even know were there! I love happy answers and happy endings!
Senneth is my favorite character; she is the center around which the story (in the first four books) revolves. She is a strong character but has vulnerablilties that give her more than one dimension.
Next favorite would be Kirra--she can be a hoyden or a great lady with equal sincerity, and she is someone you want to be at your back.
Anyone. He had the same voice with only a few differences for each character, and the voice he chose for Tayse sounded like a prude who had just eaten a lime.
I love Sharon Shinn's books of the Twelve Houses. I'm so very sorry she has concluded writing about this world.
Honestly, when I finish Part I, I'll probably stop listening. If you are thinking of buying this audio book, I recommend you buy a print or ebook version instead.
Won't spoil the plot but it involves the raelynx!
The original narrator, Jennifer van Dyck, should have been hired to narrate all five books. She does male voices just fine, whereas Joe Barrett makes Kirra sound like a 1980s drag queen. It is extremely offputting. I could not finish listening to Dark Moon Defender and I don't know if I'll be able to finish Reader and Raelynx. I do wish there was a new version of this book with Jennifer van Dyck. I would buy it, even though I've already purchased this version.
It has a followup book. Unfortunately, it has yet another narrator. Jennifer van Dyck should have been re-hired, especially after the fiasco with Joe Barrett.
Stick to Mystic and Rider, Thirteenth House, and Troubled Waters in audio version. Get the rest in print or ebook. And check out other titles narrated by Jennifer van Dyck, especially those by Jack McDevitt.
