    Sent on an impossible mission by Kingfountain's ruler into the heart of the enemy's capital as two mighty kingdoms prepare for war, Ankarette Tryneowy must divine the location of a magical sword, perhaps their key to victory. What she finds is the truth - one she could never have foreseen.

    another great story

    a great way to see the back story that leads to the rest of the king fountain series. love Kate Rudd's narration as always!

    King Severn Argentine's fearsome reputation precedes him: usurper of the throne, killer of rightful heirs, ruthless punisher of traitors. Attempting to depose him, the Duke of Kiskaddon gambles...and loses. Now the duke must atone by handing over his young son, Owen, as the king's hostage. And should his loyalty falter again, the boy will pay with his life.

    Good story, fun premise, only one major complaint.

    I haven't read the print version, so I can't comment on this.

    Owen Kiskaddon first came to the court of the formidable King Severn as a prisoner, winning favor with the stormy monarch by masquerading as a boy truly blessed by the Fountain. Nine years hence, the once-fearful Owen has grown into a confident young man, mentored in battle and politics by Duke Horwath and deeply in love with his childhood friend, the duke's granddaughter. But the blissful future Owen and Elysabeth Mortimer anticipate seems doomed by the king's machinations.

    great listen and story

    a really good follow up to the previous book, with more intriguing characters, love and sadness. give it a listen or read if you liked the first book

Robbed of his beloved protector, his noble mentor, and his true love, Owen has anticipated the day when the king he fears and reviles, yet loyally serves, will be toppled. Now, as Severn plots a campaign of conquest, the time has come to take action...and Owen's destiny demands that he lead the strike.

    enjoyed it but recommend reading legends muirwood

    As I listened to this book, I wasn't sure how to feel. There were characters who were lost that I felt didn't necessarily have to go or at least not i..Show More »

    Story

    Tryneowy Kiskaddon has grown up learning military and diplomatic strategy from her father, one of the king's closest advisors. She feels her destiny lies in defending the kingdom as a knight, not as a Wizr as her parents have decided, though no lady of the realm has taken up the sword in a century. As she seeks to understand her own Fountain-blessed powers, she studies in the tradition of her mother while training in secret and closely following the realm's politics.

    Great story. Interesting characters. So-so narrator.

    I've read all of Jeff Wheelers books so far and Kingfountain has been the best so far, and the Hollow Crown is a wonderful addition to the world.
