A great working of Wild Magic and High Magic strikes at the heart of the Demon Queen's plots, but the human city, the Golden City of the Bells, falls farther under her sway with each day that passes. And without the City's High Magicians, the Wild Magicians, the Elven Army, and all their allies will surely fall before the onslaught of the Demon Queen's malignant warriors. But not all hope is lost. The Light's young mages, tempered by war, grow ever more powerful.

Sassinak was 12 when the raiders came. That made her just the right age: old enough to be used, young enough to be broken. Or so the slavers thought. But Sassy turned out to be a little different from your typical slave girl. Maybe it was her unusual physical strength. Maybe it was her friendship with the captured Fleet crewman. Maybe it was her spirit. Whatever it was, it wouldn't let her resign herself to the life of a slave. She bided her time, watched for her moment. Finally it came, and she escaped.

I couldn't get through the first 10 minutes of the book. Gosh awful. The narrator could not even pronounce the heroine's name right much less numerous every day words in what would be less than a page of printed book. If the book is about a heroine why have a male narrator with no voice inflections?

Experience the first Killashandra Ree adventure, in which the indomitable Killa overcomes disappointment in one career by diving into a much more exciting one. Filled with suspense, anguish, romance, and intrigue, this distinctive adventure is one of Anne McCaffrey's best.

I am a big fan of the Crystal Singer series. I had a notion to be read to as I went to sleep so I purchased the audible book of Crystal Singer. I had already purchased the e-book. I will have to say that I am disappointed. I had also hoped to read while listening. And the narrators voice was grating to me.
