I really enjoyed this series, though I read the first two and listened to the last. I didn't care for the narrators portrayal of the main character. Made her sound a little too melodramatic at times. But, all in all, still a great listen.
Five stars all around tells the tale. The narrator has a talent I envy. She makes the characters live. Yes, for a bit I thought she made the main character too whiny. I later decided it had to be so to fit the later story. As for the author, excellent job.
one of the Best book series I've listened to! the whole world has a realistic sense and a magical feel as well. All the characters have realistic personalities and the places are beautifully described. Loved it!
First, I've listened to all three books in the trilogy, so this review covers all of them.
When I first read the summary for the first book I wondered why I had gotten it, but luckily it was a pleasant surprise. I'm usually not too fond of coming of age stories but this one was pretty good. The characters developments grow through the story. Even minor characters have depth to them. There's magic and action. I read some reviewers who said there was a lot of preaching and religious aspects but I didn't find it overwhelming or even really thought of this as a religious book, unlike some I've accidentally listened to. After all, the main character was raised in an Abby and the storyline is centered around them.
Lia starts out as a wretched (what we would call an orphan) in an Abby. We get to go along with her on her adventures as she discovers who she really is.
The narrator did an excellent job and added a lot to the story.
