I would not listen to Thornhold again. While it was enjoyable the story was a little too convoluted. There are Paladins and evil sorcerers... girls being reunited with their fathers... the whole gambit. Oddly, I felt the daughter/father thing with Bronwin and her father closely resembled that of a certain half-elf female from the previous series entries. It was like the same situation with different characters. Eric Michael Summerer was terrific as always.
The conflict between the Harpers and Paladins was interesting. I didn't feel like the Harpers did anything wrong like many other reviewers (they did what they always do). The least interesting aspect was the family affairs that took place. I know it is FR but it seemed far fetched and played out.
Dwarf (sorry I forgot his name).
I'm finishing up the series... this book had promise with a different set of characters, but the author played the uninteresting family card for a few too many chapters. Learning about the Harpers and Paladins was nice though.
