Publisher's Summary

"You may call me Tenzin, if you like." A girl. A mother. A slave. A monster. A survivor. Descended into madness. Forged in fire and darkness, she became one of the fiercest warriors the immortal world had ever known. But in the beginning, there was a girl.

What the Critics Say

"Brutality. Death. Madness. Retribution. This is the origin story I've been dying to hear, and Hunter more than delivered. This is how a legend is born." (Colleen Vanderlinden, author of Lost Girl)

    "Good story, but brutal and sad"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because is interesting know Tenzin's story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    None in particular. The story revolves around the girl who learns to be what it is. An intense story, presenting a world that we dare not


    What three words best describe Dina Pearlman’s performance?

    I like Dina's voice, so I think the three words would be: Perfect, articulated and appropriate.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful story, but very brutal too. Elizabeth Hunter wrote an excellent story, showing us how old Tenzin is, and how she she forged the many names it had during the long time of its existence: Girl, mother, sex slave, dumb, mad, warrior, goddess... until adopted the name Tenzin.

    "Great storyline"

    I absolutely love this series! I can't get enough of them. Everytime I finish one of the stories, I find myself a little sad, missing the characters!

    Audiophile since the days I had to check 'em out on rickety cassette tapes at the local library. Currently working the other side of production as an author of romance and scifi/fantasy.

    "Powerful and Painful"

    This was a short but immensely powerful installment in the Elemental Universe. You need to know this is not a happy book. It is dark, horrifying, painful, and gut-wrenching. But it is a well-executed book. Tenzin's origins come from a time and culture that western readers will find foreign and, without proper heuristic interpretation, despicable, but it is historically accurate. The insights it provides to the complexity of her modern iteration are intense and multifaceted.
