Alissa doesn’t believe in magic. Her father’s stories about the Hold, a legendary fortress where human Keepers learn magic from the enigmatic Masters, are just that—stories. But her mother insists Alissa has inherited her father’s magical ability, so she must go to the Hold to be trained. On her way, she crosses paths with Strell, a wandering musician from the plains.

I listened to this book and then the entire series. I absolutely loved it. The character development is great and you feel like you know the characters and have to find out how it all turns out for them. The narrator's voice annoyed me a bit at first but after a while I was used to her and all annoyance was gone with the anticipation of what was going on in the story. I am going to have my 10 year old daughter read the series. It is a wonderful story and has a love story intertwined but with no inappropriate scenes that a ten year old couldn't hear. Really great read, or listen rather.

It took several Chapters for this book to capture my attention. I would say four hours of listening at least, before I started enjoying it. The character development is slow but does eventually get there for some of the characters. I did really enjoy the book once I was finished with the first part. By the end of the third part, I found myself wanting to listen to the next book in the series. It does eventually get interesting if you can just hold on through the slow beginning.
