In Storm Rising, mysterious mage-storms are wreaking havoc on Valdemar, Karse, and all the kingdoms of the West, plaguing these lands not only with disastrous earthquakes, monsoons, and ice storms, but also with venomous magical constructs - terrifying creatures out of nightmare. Both Valdemar's Heralds and Karse's Sunpriests struggle to marshal their combined magical resources to protect their realms from these devastating, spell-fueled onslaughts. But as the situation becomes bleaker and bleaker, the still fragile alliance between these long-hostile lands begins to fray. And unless Valdemar and Karse can locate and destroy the creator of the storms, they may see their entire world demolished in a final magical holocaust.

I didn't think it could be done, but here we are. Of all the people they could have had read stories by this author, WHY did it have to be this person? I have read Mercedes Lackey for most of my life and I'm a tried and true fan of her work. Having this man read has ruined the book. It is a truly terrible narration. Don't waist your time, your money, or your credits...
Middling . . . the story is great, but the reading could use some work
Anything else by M. Lackey. It's very much in her style with many interesting characters but common threads bringing them all together.
Annoying, monotone, steady.
Audible needs to get evety book written that has anything to do with the Vadamar Series. Including the Black Griffin books. The stories are good enough to buy no matter who reads tjem.
I like the story; I think it's a compelling divergence from her 'normal' novel in that it involves many more characters and storylines than her usual. I like the perspectives of Tremaine, Solaris, and Firesong; Firesong in particular has some interesting character development. Good job building up each character through their actions.
Storm Warning, but more involved into Tremaine.
Only if he proofed his pronounciation!! "Duchy" is not pronounced 'ducky'. Lots of words that he should likely have looked up before reading them, and a few misplaced words here or there that weren't caught in the proofing.
Story is great; narration could be better.
