I must be brave.
I must do what has to be done.
I am Alice.
Alice is the most powerful witch the county has ever seen. She may one day be the most evil. But Alice is also the best friend - and true love - of Tom Ward. Together they work to defeat the Fiend - the world's greatest evil - once and for all.
They have nearly everything they need, all except a blade hidden in the Dark, the Fiend's domain. So Alice ventures there to find it. She faces the most terrifying creatures in existence. And she once again battles old enemies who bear grudges: Bony Lizzie, Bloodeye, and more.
And there's something Tom didn't tell her. To vanquish the Fiend, Tom must sacrifice the person he loves most. Alice is hunting for the very blade that will eventually kill her.

She's not my favorite but she tries her best to continue what Christopher Even Welch (R.I.P. 12/2/13) started. It's a wonderful series, so it's worth getting over the discomfort of the change in artists.
no a fan of the female Vocals. preferred the solo male narrator reader. i also did not like the bouncing around of the male and female speakers. the 1 male reader who would change his voice was great.
Nope. Awful narration. Get the print copy instead.
The performance would have been better if Christopher Evan Welch had dome the recording. This chick is awful!
This entire series has been an incredible journey. I love Alice in this series. She's brilliant, aunt, smart, caring, and so much more. I was in the Dark with her the entire way. Heart ache yet again though for Alice. Thank you Joseph Delaney for these phenomenally written books.
I am sad that Christopher Evan Welsh didn't narrate this book. This narrator has a nice voice but she did a horrible job. I had a difficult time descerning between when Alice was talking and when she was engaged in an inner dialog and even between the characters.
I like to spend a book about Alice and really makes you appreciate her character role. And she continues to walked at the end line between good and evil.
I would recommend it as it is a wonderful telling of Alice's life....just sad that she doesn't get to tell the story in her own voice - the one I came to know and like.
This Is book is a good progressive story for the Last Apprentice series, but I feel it was told a little too slowly, and repetition became annoying.
The readers voice is pleasant to listen to but I felt lacked lustre .
All in all though i would read again
