The third installment of Sherwood Smith's Wren series finds the nation of Meldrith under siege from King Andreus. Teressa suddenly finds herself thrust into a leadership role and forced to defend her country - no small task considering the widespread doubts about her ability to rule Meldrith. Luckily, the young princess is reunited with old friends Wren and Tyron, who embark on a quest to find the sinister but powerful Hawk Rhiscarlan, rumored to be holed up in ancient ruins just outside Andreus' kingdom. Performer Andi Ackerman imbues each of Tessa's advisors with a lively voice befitting of his or her character. Allowing Smith's story room to breathe, the audiobook veteran strikes a leisurely pace without compromising the urgency and magic that drives this fantasy epic.
When the evil Andreus's hunger for power leads to war, Wren and her friends are thrust into the middle of the struggle.
Teressa is heir to the throne, with Tyron her chief magicmaker, and Prince Connor a reluctant warrior. As allies die and others disappear, they must put aside their feelings for one another if they are to defeat the sorcerous Andreus. They know they need magic to save them. Can they turn the bloody tide?
