    "Absolutely Gripping"

    I enjoyed the previous two volumes in this trilogy a lot, but this final volume is absolutely gripping. Some excellent plot twists, a bravura ending, I really couldn't stop listening to this.

    The density of plot in this final volume means that in some ways I would have preferred an unabridged version (at time of writing, not currently available on Audible) but after sampling both Richard Aspel's accented narration of the unabridged volumes and Kellie Bright/Samantha Bond's narration of the abridged editions I definitely preferred the latter.

    I'm new to Trudi Canavan but will definitely be moving on to her next trilogy.This one has been one of my best Audible purchases.

    "A gripping read"

    I couldn't wait to get back in the car to carry on listening to this book. I wish there were more in the series after this one.

    "Annoying loss of content"

    This book is an awesome read I have the whole trilogy in paper back and was very sad to see how much was missing from this audiobook ...

    "Canavan rocks again with book 3"

    A good abridged version of the excellent book as the trilogy reaches its climax.
    Narrated quite well with character voices to match

    "Disappointed"

    I had high hopes for this as a friend recommended it. I found the writing style to be very grating, I lost count of how many times Akarin's lip "curled" - it honestly must have mentioned his curly lip in every chapter!!! It put me off and just made me feel like the book was lacking as the same descriptions were used repetitively.
