So I got the free prequel to see if I would like the rest of the books. I have now listened to the "1st" book of the series and used my new credits o..Show More »n the other four. Good story, nice execution, enjoying every minute of the characters and look forward to the rest of the story.
This is a really nice continuation of this series. When the author does a good job, the first in the series becomes my favorite in said series becaus..Show More »e it's the introduction to a brand new world. It isn't often for me that the second in the series is better than the first. This is one of those rare cases. The story was interesting though I missed Marcus since he didn't play as big of a role in this one. Hvam does a great job with voices. It's amazing how so many voices come from one woman.
I am only supposed to allow myself only so much time per nite. I keep breaking my personal rules .I listened to the first half twice because I wanted ..Show More »it to last longer. I didnt expect to enjoy these books as much as I have. The narrator is hipnotic . She has a firm grip on the characters personalities and the voices are consistant and unique per character.I hope you will enjoy this book and the series as much as I have.I can as of late, walk away from the TV to go listen to my books.Michelle Sagaras stories are imaginative and enveloping. On top of that Khristines portrayals are very consistant and enjoyable. Good job team.Thank you .

I have often wondered what it would sound like as an audiobook, and I was completely and delightfully surprised by Ms Hvam's narration. She completely captures the voices, nuances, and attitudes of the characters. I have just finished listening to all four audiobooks currently available ("Cast in Shadow", Cast in Courtlight", "Cast in Shadow", and "Cast in Fury") and I can recommend all of them. Looking forward to hearing the other books in the series as well!
It's a great story and it explains so much of some passages on the previous books. I read some reviews where it was said that there were holes in the..Show More » plot line but I believe that if not intentional (as cliff hangers) this book covers a lot of the "unexplained things", specially regarding her 6 month absence between the fifs and the hawks. Get it! You won't be sorry! I can't wait to hear the next one. I could probably read it because they are available in print but it won't be the same as Khristine Hvam brings so much to the plate and delivery of the story.. so I will patiently wait (sighs)..
I really love this series! I want the next one (Cast in Sorrow) now :)

If you are this far along in the series you, like most everyone will enjoy the story as much as I did.
