    "Lovely voice"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is my first audiobook: I bought it by accident! But a real treat in the evening to listen quietly with my eyes closed and imagine the magical world. I read the 1st book (also terrific) but this was so relaxing, even better than watching TV ( although it will take some doing to convince my husband!).


    Which character – as performed by Rob Inglis – was your favorite?

    Mr Inglis did all of the characters quite well-- he has a beautiful voice--but I imagined Sparrowhawk a bit younger ( but the sexiness was in there!)


    Any additional comments?

    Very nice experience for my first audiobook!

    "A nice wrap up but a bit predictable and tapers of"

    While I've enjoyed this series I started to feel it was dragging a bit in the previous book, and with this one that became more true. There are some interesting sections and creative characters and cultures but overall I was far from transfixed. An entertaining enough read for me to finish, but far from an edge of my seat kind of listen.
