The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne. Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army. Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

This was the best performance, best story, and 100% best ending ever. My entire emotional range has been completely satisfied. Lauren Fortgang's performance through out the series has been absolutely phenomenal. Her narration has made this series one of my all time favorite to listen to.

Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls - and on the soldiers escorting them. As the girls' military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks.

struggled to finish this. I love Kiera Cass, but this story isn't wasn't my favorite. I didn't like the relationship between the Sirens and the Ocean. The characters where flat and I was mostly frustrated with the dialogue, or lack thereof. I desired greater development in the relationships. It was a "meh" for me.

"Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

The voices Sarah Drew used for Alex was distracting. I wasn't a fan of any of her voices for any of the characters. They didn't fit and seemed forced. I liked the story and want to know what happens.
