All his life, Moon roamed the Three Worlds, a solitary wanderer forced to hide his true nature - until he was reunited with his own kind, the Raksura, and found a new life as consort to Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud court. But now a rival court has laid claim to him, and Jade may or may not be willing to fight for him.

Audible Editor Reviews

The Siren Depths, third in Nebula Award nominee Martha Wells’ Books of the Raksura arc, follows series protagonist Moon as he attempts to settle quietly into his new role in the Indigo Cloud court. But with old enmities recurring, and another court attempting to claim Moon as their own, the quiet life may a long way off....

Voice actor Christopher Kipiniak turns in an impressive performance, his measured enunciation and pacing serving as a strong guide for listeners in Wells’ new, fantastical, and intricately crafted world. There’s action aplenty in this thrilling fantasy, but Kipiniak is especially adept at drawing out the deeper, darker questions that plague this troubled world.

Publisher's Summary

All his life, Moon roamed the Three Worlds, a solitary wanderer forced to hide his true nature - until he was reunited with his own kind, the Raksura, and found a new life as consort to Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud court. But now a rival court has laid claim to him, and Jade may or may not be willing to fight for him. Beset by doubts, Moon must travel in the company of strangers to a distant realm where he will finally face the forgotten secrets of his past, even as an old enemy returns with a vengeance. The Fell, a vicious race of shape-shifting predators, menaces groundlings and Raksura alike. Determined to crossbreed with the Raksura for arcane purposes, they are driven by an ancient voice that cries out from… The Siren Depths.

    "Excellence in Worldbuilding"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended and will continue to recommend The Tales of the Raksura series but no one listens to me. Just in case, though... If you are looking for a series of fantasy novels that defy Tolkien-true tropes, this series for you. Set in the Three Worlds, a world whose geography and inhabitants are almost wholly unfamiliar from our own, Martha Wells' flying dragon shifters are so familiar to us because of their humanity. I love this series wholeheartedly. Start with The Could Roads. Our hero, Moon, doesn't even know what he is or where he's from. That's wonderful for the reader because we get to know the Raksura and the Three Worlds as Moon searches for a place to call home. Then, in the second novel, The Serpent Seas, Moon and members of the Indigo Cloud court have to fight to make their home safe and secure. This third novel very satisfactorily answers our remaining questions about who Moon really is and where he's from. It's lovely how the author turns traditional gender roles around and then has her characters subvert them some more. Brilliant.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't begin to choose. Okay, Moon first. He's prickly and prone to fighting and loyal and honorable. Then, Stone who is even more prickly, prone to fighting and is ancient, to boot.


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

    When Malachite refers to Moon and Jade as children (even though she's telling them to shut up), I knew that she had accepted Jade as Moon's queen, even though it means he must leave her and his new found home.

    "Wells needs to wright more on this story line"

    Finally more of the culture is revealed. I just love this story. More must be made. This one focused more on the main characters culture which makes me happy.

    "Really good listen"

    All I can say if you liked the first two books you will really enjoy this part of series. Because it shows where Moon comes from and how previous events changed his life.

    "Great "Conclusion""

    While the book leaves open possible opportunity for more (hopefully), it neatly closes most of the back-story elements of the 1st two books and even provides much of the pre-history that moved the 1st two books forward. The author manages to propel the characters into yet another new situation (this time more politically oriented initially) without loosing a step. I'm very impressed with the author's skills as she has managed to create 3 separate storylines in 3 books that are non-repetitive and leave you wishing for more.

    "Pure Excellence."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. The world building is magnificent. The characters and their interactions are so engaging you can't help but stay up later than you should just to find out what happens next.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Siren Depths?

    When Stone demands to be let into Opal Night.


    What about Christopher Kipiniak’s performance did you like?

    Everything. He did such a good job of giving everyone a distinct voice that I had no problem distinguishing the different characters.


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

    When the royal clutch tries to negotiate with Moon in an attempt to get him to stay at Indigo Cloud.


    Any additional comments?

    Try to listen to this when you have no obligations the next day because you might find yourself pulling an all-nighter, like I did, because it's just to good to put down.

    "A Great Third Book, but"

    I really enjoyed the third book in this series, but there were times when I found myself drifting and the story was just playing in the background of my thoughts and I was surfing for new books on Audible. The first book was definitely the best. Still, I did care about the characters and enjoyed the main story line and was well worth the credit. BTW and without spoiling anything...this is the story of two colonies clashing heads and then uniting reluctantly for a common cause.
